SA's pricing for the SVI bullet-resistant Ford Ranger Raptor

SVI, a Johannesburg-based armoured vehicle specialist, has announced a bullet-resistant package for the Raptor variant, following the introduction of its armoured package for the Ford Ranger line-up earlier this year.

The Ford Ranger Raptor with B4 armoured specification is available from Ford dealers for R454 271, which translates to a total cost of around R1.37 million once the vehicle price is factored in.

This SVI package, billed as an ideal anti-hijack solution, provides B4 bullet-resistant protection against handguns up to.44 Magnum, as well as protection against brick throwing and other hand-held projectiles. The package includes 18-21mm armoured glass and Kevlar sheets for the vehicle's body.

However, this ‘inconspicuous' protective package comes with a 280kg weight penalty, which will affect performance and fuel efficiency.

The SVI Ford Ranger Raptor keeps its impressive Fox rear suspension set-up that makes it ideal for high-speed off-roading because suspension changes were deemed unnecessary. Ford hasn't approved SVI's B6 assault rifle protection package for the Raptor model because of its lower payload.

The B4 armoured Ford Ranger Raptor, according to SVI, takes about 10 weeks to build. A one-year or 50 000 km warranty is also included with the armouring components.
