2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Long Term Road Test

2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Road Trip Introduction

September 06, 2010


Just weeks before we purchased our long-term 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, I road-tripped an identical truck up to Northern California. All told the trip spanned 10 days and 1,200 miles.

The plan was loose but there was some direction. We'd drive up Highway 395 to Mammoth Lakes, across the Tioga Pass into Yosemite National Park, further west to Napa and then head home. Everything in between was piloted by the seat of my pants. I spent quite a bit of time in the Raptor, and it left plenty of impressions.

Check back daily for each leg of the trip.
