The Ford SVT Raptor has proved to be one of the top selling and most popular trucks in the last couple of years. Ford has made a decision to begin building the Raptor in its Dearborn truck plant to keep up with demand. The makers at Ford have set a goal to boost production to 5 trucks an hour within the next few weeks.

The Raptor began as an experiment and proved to be extremely successful. The Raptor starts at around $44,000 and can go up to $60,000 based on options.

It features a 6.2 Liter V-8 and offers 411 horsepower. Dealerships cannot keep these vehicles on the lot which is why Ford is beefing up production.
