Ford has unveiled an extended version of “charged” F-150 Raptor pickup – SuperCrew at the Detroit Motor Show. Previously, the model of a new generation had only a SuperCab modification with two full doors. The four-door pickup increased the wheelbase from 3378 to 3683 millimeters. Representatives of the US Company announced that this is the most practical, roomy and fastest F-150 Raptor in history.
