Ford F-150 Raptor
Since modern trucks come with more powerful engines, 4×4 drivetrains, and tougher suspensions, it was only a matter of time before someone would offer a proper off-road performance truck. Ford answered the call for one in 2010 with the first-generation F-150 Raptor. But nowadays, there is a new and even better Raptor with fantastic performance. This Raptor has a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 with 450 HP and 510 lb.-ft of torque. It also has a 10-speed automatic transmission with sub-five-second acceleration times. Although the figures suggest it’s an exotic supercar, it is a full-size pickup truck with room for five people and a regular truck bed. But this is different from your ordinary pickup.
The Raptor is the closest thing to a complete Baja 1000 racing vehicle. Everything started in 2010 when Ford introduced the first-generation SVT Raptor (via Edmunds). The truck-purchasing public didn’t expect such a move. But they were fascinated by the truck’s looks, performance, and capabilities. The idea behind the Raptor was to construct the fastest off-road truck. Ford did just that, installing numerous chassis and suspension upgrades in addition to a powerful engine. The best thing about the Raptor is that Ford also prepared an extreme off-road truck with a customer warranty. You can take this truck rock crawling, desert crossing, or mud dipping. Of course, it is still a normal driving everyday truck. But Ford did a great job in combining the toughness of an extreme off-road truck with the usability of a regular modern pickup.
