2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Tioga Pass
September 12, 2010
The Raptor's 6.2 had no issue with the 9,500 foot elevation as we climbed the Tioga Pass. It was as if we were at sea level. No hesitation from the transmission either. Maybe the 6,000 rpm redline deserves the credit, but it held gears and pulled heartily despite the grade.
It was almost sad to pull into Yosemite. The Raptor would be parked for a few days with nothing other than a layer of filth to protect it from the bears. After 3 days of hiking in the park, our Raptor road trip was nearing its end.
Next, we headed home.
