Loose driving surfaces are no big deal for the all-new, 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, what with its off-road racing pedigree and equipment like standard Fox Racing Shox and a Terrain Management System featuring the evocatively-named “Baja” driving mode.
Considering that, the F-150 Raptor ought to be just about the ideal playmate for wintertime, and that’s exactly what Ford Performance set out to prove with the above video. Some key components: a 2017 F-150 Raptor SuperCab, some snowy, mountainous terrain, and professional rally driver Ken Block.
This video’s no Climb Dance, but hey, we’ll take it.
The Ford F-150 Raptor is a high-performance, all-terrain variant of the half-ton F-Series pickup, completely redesigned for the 2017 model year. It’s powered by a 450-horsepower version of Ford’s second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, paired with the automaker’s new 10-speed automatic transmission – a versatile combo which enabled a factory stock example of the truck to complete the infamous, grueling SCORE Baja 1000 desert race last month in less time than the 36-hour limit.
Be sure to watch the new F-150 Raptor bound like an excited pup through snow in the video above.
