RSS Official: Ford SVT Raptor gets beadlock wheels, HIDs for 2013

Recommended Posts

Filed under: Truck, Ford, Off-Road01-2013-ford-svt-raptor628opt.jpg

In addition to the standard and new Limited models, Ford's freshening of the 2013 F-150 has extended to the no-job-too-big SVT Raptor, as well. Look closely and you'll see the new (optional) high-intensity discharge headlamps, the special beadlock wheels available through Ford Racing and the brand-new exterior color, called Terrain. (No, not that Terrain.)

About those wheels: Ford Racing will offer a beadlock ring kit as an option to SVT Raptor buyers. For serious off-roaders, this type of wheel is immensely helpful when the going gets rough. As Ford puts it:

Beadlock wheels secure the edges of a tire to the wheel between two surfaces so the tire is unlikely to roll off the rim if it's aired down to very low pressure, providing extra grip on the trail.

The Raptor's interior gets a slight tweak for 2013, as well, with the addition of a 4.2-inch multifunction LCD screen in the instrument cluster that's paired with the automaker's MyFord Touch infotainment system, still housed in the eight-inch screen on the center console. The powertrain has remained the same, but that's just fine - we're perfectly happy with the 6.2-liter V8, pumping out 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque.

Scroll down for the full details in the press blast.

Beadlocks from factory?

FINALLY!

It just makes too much sense to not put them on.

Headlights look cool but, honestly, unless you're doing 45+ mph through a rocky terrain, you don't need bead locks.

Maybe instead of adding stuff, they should fix the frame that bends in half first...

Sent from my mind using telekinesis.

^ Those were from people getting way too much air with the truck. I've read about those stories, and honestly, any truck's frame will bend from that kind of abuse. It's not a Baja racer. :lol:

This. The raptor was advertised as a truck that could take any kid of abuse. Can't blame people for it.

Doesn't matter. Why should Ford be responsible for stupid customers? If they're dumb enough to launch their Raptor +20 feet in the air, then they deserve to have a broken truck and voided warranty.

Because they advertised it as a truck that could do so. So when I give you a bag of skittles and say; "These will taste great!" and you put them in your mouth and they are hard as a rock but, still taste good and you chip a tooth, it's not Mars Inc's fault?
