2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Looking To Steal Glory From Range Rover SVR

By  | 

When high performance vehicles are exported from the US to other markets they generally come with huge tax policies thanks to the high displacement engine and this means the price rises. The same has applied to the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor when it arrived in the UK.

If you live in the UK and you buy the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor then you are looking at spending £78,000, which is the equivalent of $96, 500. For this amount of money in the US you could go out and buy yourself the Tesla Model X that is reasonably decked out. You can get hold of the entry level Raptor for around $48,000 in the US.

However this doesn’t seem to be putting people off from purchasing the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor overseas. In fact that Raptor has been stealing the glory from the Range Rover SVR, which comes in with a price tag of $93,500.

This may be due to the fact that the Range Rover SVR does offer up more luxury than the Ford F-150 Raptor and it does offer up 550 horses along with 502 torque. The Raptor offers 450 horses and 510 torque. So looking at this having an alternative that is more affordable benefits customers.

If you do have the money to spare you might want to go for the supercharged Ford F-150 Raptor from Sutton Bespoke as this offers up almost 600 horses for an extra $10, 800. It seems that the Raptor is so expensive in the UK as it costs $36,000 for the right hand drive conversion.

But would you pay out that money to get behind the wheel of the Ford F-150 Raptor in the UK?
