In addition to the standard and new Limited models, Ford’s freshening of the 2013 F-150 has extended to the no-job-too-big SVT Raptor, as well. Look closely and you’ll see the new (optional) high-intensity discharge headlamps, the special beadlock wheels available through Ford Racing and the brand-new exterior color, called Terrain. (No, not that Terrain.)

About those wheels: Ford Racing will offer a beadlock ring kit as an option to SVT Raptor buyers. For serious off-roaders, this type of wheel is immensely helpful when the going gets rough. As Ford puts it:

Beadlock wheels secure the edges of a tire to the wheel between two surfaces so the tire is unlikely to roll off the rim if it’s aired down to very low pressure, providing extra grip on the trail.

The Raptor’s interior gets a slight tweak for 2013, as well, with the addition of a 4.2-inch multifunction LCD screen in the instrument cluster that’s paired with the automaker’s MyFord Touch infotainment system, still housed in the eight-inch screen on the center console. The powertrain has remained the same, but that’s just fine – we’re perfectly happy with the 6.2-liter V8, pumping out 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque.
