Raptor and Tribulation: 2010 Ford F150 SVT Raptor

When the Ford SVT Raptor hit the showrooms in late 2009, I said to myself:  “Self, this is going to be an AWESOME DT car once the frames have been bent, odometers rolled, and the magic wand of depreciation has driven prices low…can’t take more than 5 years.”  Well…amazingly enough, these beasts maintained high resale value for almost a decade and ONLY now (ten years after launch…literally) can you get one for less than $20k — and not just sketchy craigslist ads with minimal details and probably a complex 419 scam on the other end.  But, a real 5.4L V8 powered off-road beast for the price of a few Dodge Ram beaters. Find this 2010 Ford F150 SVT Raptor offered for $21,500 in Watertown, CT via craigslist.

From the seller:

2010 Ford Raptor 

fuel: gas 

title status: clean 

transmission: automatic 

Looking to sell my Ford Raptor. 

This truck is VERY CLEAN. No rust issues. No accident history. No paintwork. No modifications.

Specs as follow:


Black on Black

SuperCab / Extended Cab


BF Goodrich tires with excellent tread

New Factory Fox Shocks installed recently ($$$)

Current mileage is ~169k, but I do drive the truck often, so likely to increase!

Carfax is clean, indicates the truck has been dealer maintained from new, and shows 2 owners. I have a clean, lein free title in hand.

A lot of these trucks have been modified and/or driven hard. This truck is bone stock (aside from an aftermarket headunit). It has been well cared for and used as an every day vehicle – NOT a work truck! Bed has spray in liner and is in very nice shape. Again, this wasn’t used as a “truck”! Leather seats are in nice condition, and show wear far less than miles indicate! This truck is truly in SUPERB condition for the miles! When I purchased it, it was cleaner than many trucks w 1/2 or 1/3 the miles!!

This truck needs nothing! I love the truck, but I’d like something new! I would consider partial trades towards a newer Raptor.

Asking $21,500
