2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Long Term Road Test


2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Pathetic?

July 19, 2011

I realized this morning as I looked wantingly at the Raptor's 4x4 switch that in nearly a year of driving this truck at least once weekly I've never switched it out of two-wheel drive.

So go ahead and begin the verbal abuse. I deserve it.

I take that back. Settle down. Because I have done this and this in a Raptor back when it had the sissy-pants 5.4-liter V8, so it's not like I've never put this truck through its paces.

But more importantly, I'm completely satisfied driving the thing around on the street. Because it's freakin' cool. I'm happy just looking at it in my driveway. And it's particualrly cool with a mountain bike in the back -- something I've done too many times to count.

So here's to the Raptor; A dirt truck that doesn't even need dirt to be cool.
