2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Venting

September 27, 2010


The Raptor's hood vents are one of my favorite elements of its tough-truck styling. But do they actually accomplish anything?

Jump with me to find out.

Raptor-under-hood.jpg That little hole in the bottom right of the photo is what the Raptor's hood vent looks like from the underside. I've intentionally cropped loose for perspective on its shape, size and location. It sits right above the windhsield washer reservoir. There's an equally small hole on the other side. So do they actually accommodate any airflow?

Your guess is as good as mine.
