I was pretty sure that I read that they were postponing it for awhile. Maybe I dreampt that one up.
As for it being on the website as a 2010 model, I couldn't find it anywhere on the the Ford Motor site or the SVT site.
Not saying you are wrong or dreaming but I was reading about it on Ford's web site earlier today.

"the all-new 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor, a purpose-built, high-performance off-road truck that’s versatile enough to take on the most challenging desert adventures, as well as the everyday commute. Coming spring 2009"
At the Detroit three couldn't tell you how much a loaf of bread costs so at this point in time I don't hold out much hope for them getting it right in regards to fixing what ails the domestic auto industry.
That said I think it would be great if Bill Ford went incognito and lived in several parts of the country for 6 months, during that time he could attend sporting events Races, baseball games hockey games (come on I am Canadian after all) and football games as well as malls and vintage car shows.
He should eat at Dennys and Mcdonalds Pizza Hut and TGFI fridays and some of the local home town dinners.
He should get to know America and Americans and see and drive what they are driving used to drive and are looking to drive in the future.
Then he should go back home and think about his little adventure for another month, don't rush it.
Then he should let folks know in a press conference that he has lived amongst them and has gotten to know them and (middle America) the most valuable resource in America and that he is now ready to like his Great grampa build autos they can all be proud of and want to buy.
I know I'm a dreamer, but i think Bill Ford has it in him.
