In 2010, we got the first Ford Raptor off-road performance truck. Soon after, the Ford Ranger left America. I know people have been hoping that some way, some how, the two would be combined and now you can literally watch that happen. We still have to pray that the Ford Ranger Raptor will some day be sold in America,…
The 2019 Ford Raptor is getting new hardware over the outgoing 2018 model, including fancy Fox shocks that detect when the vehicle is flying, as well as off-road cruise control called “Trail Control.”
It would appear that while the Ford Motor Company gave the new diesel Raptor Ranger a 10-speed automatic gearbox, it also examined some more extreme options. Like 13 gears! Can you imagine? Let me be clear here that I believe 13 gears is too many gears.
I think the Ford Raptor, with its own name scribbled all over it in screaming font and its massiveness and its 450 horsepower and its long-travel shocks, is profoundly silly. I mean, I get its appeal in, like, an off-road sense. But I couldn’t imagine that anyone would need more than that—let alone for over $100,000.…
The 2017 Ford Raptor is an amazing piece of engineering. But as powerful as the truck’s twin turbo 3.5-liter V6 is, the sound just isn’t as boot-shakingly badass as the last generation’s V8. I thought a MagnaFlow exhaust might change that but, well, why don’t you listen and decide for yourself?
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor isn’t exactly the first choice for drag racing, but what better way is there to illustrate how the new turbo Raptor stacks up against the old-school V8 Raptor? The result is that there is, indeed, a replacement for displacement.
I feel like we’ve been waiting for the new 2017 Ford Raptor forever. I mean, it’s hard to not get stoked about a daily-drivable high-speed off-road truck. This week we finally got to let it loose in exactly the kind of extreme sandscape you see in the commercials, and once again, it’s almost too good—but at a price…
Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! We’re getting up at dawn and hiking into the desert to finally see and touch and also drive the hell out of the 2017 Ford Raptor. I know you’re almost as stoked to hear about it as I am to play with it, so what do you want to know?
The Air Force’s new F-22 Raptor is known for being super complicated and super expensive. That’s probably why the Air Force called up NASA for help last week when it heard that Hurricane Hermine was headed towards Virginia, where thirteen of its F-22s were hanging out at Langley Air Force Base.
The Ford Raptor is unequivocally the baddest factory off-road pickup truck in America. At the end of this year the new one comes out, in Ford’s aluminum F-150 bodystyle with an aggressively-tuned 3.5 EcoBoost engine. Here it is being driven exactly the way you’d want to.
The 2017 Ford Raptor is redesigned, re-engined, and it looks great in pictures. But now it’s faced with the challenge of proving itself all over again. So Ford is putting it through six major off-road races this year, in stock condition. Sort of.
The French Air Force and Royal Air Force have sent their finest equipment and crews to Langley AFB in Virginia to take part in an inaugural exercise, dubbed simply “Trilateral Exercise,” alongside the 1st Fighter Wing’s F-22 Raptors. This international air combat force will focus on integrated training for taking on…
Watching this B-roll of the 2017 Ford Raptor doodling around Michigan’s Silver Lake sand dunes we realized; this must be what every car commercial looks like before it’s tuned up with sweet jumps and sound effects.
As if they suddenly came to an epiphany, the United States Air Force brass is now admitting what many of us have been screaming about for so long: We didn’t build nearly enough F-22s, and the F-35 cannot simply pick up the slack. So why aren’t those who pushed so hard to cancel the F-22 program being held accountable?
We know the 2017 Ford Raptor will have a 3.5 twin turbo V6, ten-speed automatic transmission, and of course the new F-150’s aluminum body. No real claims have been made on the truck’s power or weight, but Forza 6 has numbers. Think they mean anything?
Ford maintains a 66 mile course of sand and slag to test their trucks off-road, and after whipping the 2017 Ford Raptor through it they say the new aluminum-bodied 3.5 liter turbo truck made a 25 percent improvement on lap times over the old 6.2 V8.
In an act that can only be described as pure and utter genius, a shop in South Carolina dropped a Ford Raptor rolling chassis under a fifth generation Bronco body. The result? A badass, classic two-door SUV that drives like your favorite modern desert runner.
