2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: The Tour Continues

August 11, 2011

Yesterday we began saying our goodbyes to the Raptor. With those goodbyes comes a survey of the truck's condition -- evidence that maybe, just maybe, we don't destroy everything we drive, as some of you contend.

Have at look a the skidplate. Or maybe a more appropriate name would be the non-skidplate.

But wait, there's more...

The tires -- both front and rear -- show wear, but there's plenty of meat left. The edges are still relatively square, which is important for dirt use as that's what gives them the bite to actually turn the truck in the soft stuff.

There's some grime on the steering wheel's red center stripe. I'm getting over it already.

The center stack still looks new.

And the other bits you touch every time you drive the truck are still holding up quite well. You can't even tell the thing has had grimy editor hands all over it for the last 13 months.

The seats, too, look good -- both front and back. I dig this embossed Raptor logo.
