SVT RAPTOR F-150 Born in baja

Take a look at the little video Ford has put together about the NEW RAPTOR. (IN BAJA)

I've attached one, I do encourage all of you to try and watch all of them.. Good stuff.

It's has the all new 6.2L V-8. This engine flat out runs!!!!

The Raptor is a cool truck. Could have used this back in the 70's when I four wheeeled alot. Hopefully it sells well in this market.

From what I understand, (word around FORD) the first ones on the market will have the 5.4L. Not until late 2010 will the 6.2L be available...?

i assumed the ones at the dunes were pre-production trucks out for some testing.
