12: The End of SVT?
If Ford is going to kill off gas-powered cars, the end could be near for the SVT brand. One of the things that the SVT brand has always done right is to cram obscenely fast performance engines into ordinary vehicles. Without the SVT brand, we might never see another Mustang Cobra or a hyped-up F-150 pickup truck.
With the release of the Ford Lightning electric truck, the end is already spelled out for the return of the Lightning brand. The days at the SVT division could be numbered due to the rise of electric vehicles and the move toward all-electric powertrains.
