If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Ford should be feeling pretty good right now as Ram is reportedly considering a competitor to the F-150 SVT Raptor.

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Ford should be feeling pretty good right now as Ram is reportedly considering a competitor to the F-150 SVT Raptor.

Mopar's vice president of sales and field operations told Wards Auto "My boss would really like us to try to do a little more research on the Raptor and how it does." Pat Dougherty went on to say “If we could see that the volume was significant enough that it makes sense to do it, we’ll do it."

Dougherty declined to elaborate but any production model would likely have a number of styling tweaks including a lifted suspension and larger off-road tires.

Mopar already offers a Ram Runner package - which includes a ventilated hood, modified fenders and a lift kit - but the proposed model would come straight from the factory just like the SVT Raptor.
