Would You Rather See a Next Generation F-150 Raptor or Lightning?

By -


The 2015 Ford F-150 looks to be a great evolution of the bestselling truck in the U.S. market, but there is an obvious absence of any high performance SVT models. Based on the success of the SVT Lightning and the SVT Raptor versions of the F-150, we can be sure that there will be a performance package coming in the not so distant future…but what will it be?

The Ford SVT Lightning F-150 was a powerful supercharged on-road sport truck that packed enough power to beat many performance cars while also easily being one of the fastest production trucks ever. The Lightning F-150 was incredible, but it has been years since the Motor Company has offered a true on-road performance model shy of the EcoBoost’d Tremor.

The Ford SVT Raptor F-150 was available in the previous generation of the popular half ton pickup and while the Raptor was a beast in terms of both sales numbers and performance – it focused more on off-road performance than road racing and drag racing. The advantage of the Raptor was that it would go anywhere and it would do it in a hurry – all without compromising towing or hauling abilities.

With all of that in mind, we want to know whether you think that Ford’s first performance application for the new 2015 F-150 should be an on-road performer like the Lightning or another off-road beast like the Raptor.
