Ford’s extreme pickup truck has a very enthusiastic fan base, but having never driven one, didn’t understand why.
Ford invited KeriBlog to Alberta a couple months ago, to test their F150 truck lineup, part of which was, “here’s a Raptor and a crazy course, have fun”. I totally get it now.
The Raptor eats it, all unaffected.

It’s a 6.2L V8 engine, outputting 411 hp and 434 lb-ft. of torque with a 6-spd automatic and 4-wheel drive
Comes in one trim only, love that.
Limited options include: a moonroof, bed-liners, and a graphics package, (say no to all). Front and rear cameras are extra, $1000 for both (meh, use your eyes).
Starting at – $56,599
Then around the track with Jeremy Sinek, chief road-tester at MSN Autos, and a far better driver than I.
Me losing control of my neck ha.
Lastly, here’s the post about that Alberta trip, where the sky really is bigger, and the drive instructors are awesome.
