The Ford Raptor has proven that it’s capable of doing more than prerunning the deserts of Baja before the big 1000 or having fun playing in the sand. It recently proved it’s worthy as an effective mud truck. At the Silver Willow Classic Mudbog in Mansfield, Ontario something must of excited the owner of this stock Ford Raptor as he wanted to prove it can hang with the lifted mud trucks. He took his clean blue Raptor to the top of the muddy hill, dipped his way into the mud, gave her some throttle and splashed his way through the pit.
The Ford F150 Raptor hit the showroom floors in 2009 as a dedicated off roader. With its 310 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque 5.4-liter V8 or 411 hp and 434 lb-ft of torque 6.2-liter, this truck means business. Designed with the Baja 1000 in mind, the truck was intended for teams to have a factory truck that can prerun the desert course and later be used to ride the dunes. With its 11-inches of front suspension travel, 12-inches of rear suspension travel, 4.10:1 rear-end gears, and large fan base willing to take them anywhere, the Raptor has proven itself as a versatile all terrain attacker capable of running through the desert, snow, trails, and even mud.
All Terrain Attacker
The Raptor is the ultimate enthusiasts truck, capable of going anywhere in the world. It’s a truck designed for real men who aren’t afraid of pushing the envelope and scoff when they see rough terrain. This truck knows no limits or boundaries and we would say it isn’t a toy – but let’s face it, it is.
