It's called the Ford Raptor. Looks awesome to me. I'm normally a Ram guy, but this sounds great. It'll have a lower and wider body, more like a factory baja racer

I want to see the new Ford Platinum F150. The Detroit Auto Show had one, but they didnt have anything by it to tell about it and it was all locked up on a platform. About the only difference I saw was the badging and all the chrome though. But it's gotta be pretty sweet inside and under the hood.

Its funny they are talking about making this and today I heard they were going to cut a crap load of jobs.
It would be nice though, SVT is dead right?

Like Toyota. Stop making fun cars and start making high-volume white-bread sedans. Good cars, just plain.

Just a project name. They'll probably call it something different closer to production
