For the coming model year, Ford has announced that everyone’s favorite factory built off-road racing truck will be available with an even more custom-looking package that adds a number of visual upgrades. The 2014 Ford F150 SVT Raptor is already about the most capable, purpose-built vehicle on the road today. Designed to tackle any trail at any speed, the SVT Raptor features a number of upgrades to the already-amazing F150. Internal triple-bypass racing shock dampers from FOX, a Torsen limited slip differential, Hill Descent Control, skid plates, and other upgrades help the Raptor to get over just about any obstacle. HID headlamps along with front- and rear-mounted cameras help to increase visibility. The Raptor even features beadlock-capable wheels that allow drivers to deflate tires to extremely low pressures for low-speed traction and grip.
The SVT Raptor Special Edition adds a number of unique touches to the already “spec’d-out” Luxury Package. Among these upgrades is a unique “Raptor SVT” graphic on the side of the box and a unique Ruby Red Metallic paint color (Tuxedo Black is also available). Inside, the Special Edition gets unique seats with Brick Red leather seat bolsters and unique honeycomb textured black cloth inserts. The console gets a unique finishing panel while the center stack and door panels get contrasting appliqué accents.

The Ford Atlas concept, which first debuted at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, MI, is one of the most exciting concept vehicles to come out of any auto-maker in the past few years. While it may seem like a concept truck from Ford is insignificant when compared to exotic supercars from Italian companies, it is actually the other way around. This concept affects many more people than a Ferrari or Lamborghini concept ever could. Hundreds of thousands of people will buy the next F150 and drive it on a daily basis, either for work or for their commuter vehicle. That is why the Atlas has worked up so much excitement and here at Marketplace Ford we can’t wait to see how many of the design features make it into production for the next generation of Ford trucks.
Recently, Ford has released a set of slides that show just how the concept evolved and grew throughout its many editions. However, even from early on, it was clear that Ford wanted to create a new generation of trucks that builds on the current abilities and features that drivers have come to expect. Looking through the slides it
is cool to see some of the innovative ideas and how they have been refined to work in the concept truck. The extended
glass roof was ditched for a more versatile roof-storage system and the tailgate storage space was thrown out for a tailgate-step/roof storage extender. Features like the aerodynamic wheels and the integrated bed-lighting made the cut though with only slight changes. Check out the slides below!
Just in the past month, Ford has been observed experimenting with what looks to be a new pickup truck. The rumors have been flying for a while now that Ford is thinking of re-introducing the Ford Ranger (or F100) compact pickup truck in the N. American market.
While the spy shots are not very revealing at all, there are a few tell-tale signs that show something big (or rather small) is on the horizon! First, there is some evidence that the test mule uses 5-lug wheels rather than the traditional 6-lug setup of medium- to heavy-duty trucks. It is also apparent that the new truck rides on a track that is noticeably narrower than the current F-150. It also looks to be sitting lower and appears to have less wheel-gap. Make what you will of these speculations, but here at Marketplace Ford we will keep our fingers crossed and keep hoping it means that Ford is bringing back the Ford Ranger!
Ford’s new Atlas concept truck was recently unveiled at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. While it may not have been the most glamorous or exotic new concept vehicle revealed at the show, many sources are already saying that it is the most significant. Yes, the Ford Atlas concept is a glimpse into the future of the nation’s bestselling pickup truck for the past 36 years. While it may not be the most exciting or the fastest vehicle at the show, it is most likely going to be the vehicle that sells the best. The Atlas Concept shows that it will continue a long tradition of rugged dependability and utility along with new and striking good looks.
If past sales provide a look at how the F-150 will perform in the future, countless pickups will be bought and used by many different types of customers. A good number will go to construction crews and workers who use the capable trucks to their full potential, hauling gear and moving crew members. There is also a huge market of DIY, weekend warriors who use the trucks to haul material to and from the hardware store and the work-sites where they are completing projects. The F-150 even appeals to drivers who want a comfortable and accommodating cabin with a smooth ride, especially in crew cab form. There is literally an F-150 for every type of driver!
The Atlas concept has hinted at new features that might make it into production that would continue to improve this already awesome truck. Representatives at the auto show claimed that the next generation EcoBoost engine will provide better power and fuel efficiency making the truck even more useable. New aerodynamic features like active front shutters and chin spoilers also help to make this one of the most aerodynamic F-150s yet. Cool features like a tailgate step, 360-degree around-view cameras, and “Dynamic Hitch Assist” ,which automatically lines the trailer hitch up with a trailer, should help to make future F-150 pickups even more enjoyable to own!
Marketplace Ford is receiving their first Ford F150 Tuscany edition at the dealership. While the F150 is already one of the nicest looking and best performing trucks in the world, the Tuscany conversion transforms it into a whole different beast that looks as tough as it really is.
Adding some flair to the outside of this truck are several visual and performance oriented upgrades. 20” Chrome wheels and BF Goodrich all-terrain tires and a 2” lift and leveling kit under custom painted fender flares and vents give the truck a lifted and customized look. A billet style front grille, raised hood scoops, dual exhaust, and chrome accents all around help contribute to the custom look as well.
Inside, leather & ultra suede seats with color stitching and inserts with matching center console trim give the truck a uniform look while tinted windows and a leather/titanium steering wheel lend to an upscale feel.
Optional upgrades include a 6” lift kit, painted Tonneau cover, stainless steel Nerf bars, and more. If you’re into trucks and want one that will stand out in a crowd, stop by Marketplace Ford and check out the Tuscany F150 in person. We’re sure you will be impressed.
While it may not be the truck for everyone, the 2013 Ford F-150 Harley Davidson Edition is a truly distinct vehicle with a comfortable and enjoyable ride! Some may feel like the Harley-Davidson badges are just too much. Others may not like the side decals or the contrast painted wheels. But for the sort of person who likes to drive something a little bit more unique than a Corolla or an Accord, this truck is a natural match!
Just like any other F-150, the inside of this thing borders on enormous! It is a very comfortable cabin with plenty of space to accommodate four or even five full-sized adults. You won’t be bumping shoulders in this beast either! The leather upholstery contributes to a rugged while almost luxurious feel that seems to invite you in. Harley-Davidson touches are tastefully added to the seats and digital displays that remind you again that you are driving a truck with a persona to uphold.
With a 6.2 liter Ford V8 that evokes the enthusiasm of its namesake, it really does well with keeping the biker image. Suspension, steering and brakes on this truck are more than sufficient for whatever pickup-truck duties you may ask it to do as well. And since it’s a Ford, you know it’s going to have top of the line technology and driving aides that make it easy to command. If you think you would like this truck, check out the AutoWeek video review below.
All-in-all, if you love Harley-Davidson bikes, or if you just love a truck that doesn’t blend into the background, this could very well be the truck of your dreams! You can leave those bland looking, tin-can compacts for other people to drive. Come check out our inventory at Marketplace Ford to see if we have a vehicle for your tastes!
