The USBP bought a huge amount of the Raptor pickups for their southern Border Patrol areas. My understanding is that this order was around 1000 units. Ford made a special run of Raptors for the USBP essentially creating a “One of” Raptor SSV.
USBP spec’d out what they wanted and Ford built them as requested, this is done for large orders.
Your right its an SSV, obviously the Raptor isn’t pursuit rated but it was never intended to be.
Florida Fish and Wildlife is another large customer that received a special SSV build for the Raptor.
Ford is set to start production on the Interceptor Utility EcoBoost in the next few months, this unit will be a very hot item for Law Enforcement. Highway Patrol Agency’s like Nevada Highway Patrol will be purchasing lots of these units.
