Ford's global performance vehicle chief engineer, accompanied by senior exterior designer Bruce Williams, sat down with the publication to discuss the concept and development of the automaker's super off-road <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/ford/f-150/">F-150</a>.<br /><br />Designing a high-performance pickup in 2008, right when the cost of gasoline was going through the roof, seemed insane at the time, but the team pushed forward with the innovative vehicle regardless. The interview includes plenty of <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/ford/">Ford</a> B-roll footage as visual candy, and the conversations include discussions about exterior design, ride comfort, anti-lock brake tuning, suspension engineering, weight reduction and why it was necessary to make the Raptor visually different than Ford's standard F-150. The model's origin story is very interesting, and you can learn more about it by watching the video <a href="/2013/05/01/how-the-ford-f-150-svt-raptor-became-a-reality/#continued">below</a>.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/05/01/how-the-ford-f-150-svt-raptor-became-a-reality/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>How the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor became a reality</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/05/01/how-the-ford-f-150-svt-raptor-became-a-reality/">How the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor became a reality</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Wed, 01 May 2013 19:57:00 EST.
