Ford Announces Free ‘Raptor Assault’ Driving School For F-150 Raptor Owners

Just as Ford did with the “ST Octane Academy” for Fiesta ST and Focus ST owners, the “Shelby GT350 Track Attack,” and more recently, the “RS Adrenalie Academy” for Focus RS customers, the automaker has announced that buyers of the all-new, 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor will receive free, hands-on instruction in performance driving technique, in the form of a new “Raptor Assault” program.

“We’re looking forward to the excitement, training and thrills Raptor Assault will deliver to owners of the 2017 truck,” says Ford Performance Racing School President Dan McKeever. “The new Raptor is an incredible truck, and our facility is the perfect venue to demonstrate just what it can do off-road. Our instructors can help anyone take their driving expertise to the next level – whether the person is a beginner or an experienced off-roader.”

Ford’s Raptor Assault program will be a one-day affair, featuring instruction both in and out of the classroom. Participants will learn all about the 2017 F-150 Raptor’s unique features and how to use them off-road, before climbing into the pilot’s seat to get some real driving experience in the high desert of Utah. Professional instruction will be provided as participants try their hands at rock crawling, side-hilling, descending, and high-speed desert driving.

Again, the Raptor Assault program will be free-of-charge to buyers of the new, 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor; participants need only pay for travel and lodging. For more, visit
