2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Long Term Road Test


2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Wear Sunscreen

September 24, 2010

Yesterday afternoon I drove the Ford Raptor an hour-and-a-half south in traffic, from Santa Monica to Newport Beach, to help pick up a test car that was stranded in Orange County.

Normally I looooove driving the Raptor, but on the way back north, the sun on the driver's side of the truck was killing me. The truck's windows are so tall, there was no good way for me to avoid a full blast of sun on the left side of my face. I swung the visor to the side, but it was still way too high to be of use.

Sounds like a girly, nitpicky thing to complain about, but I can't remember the last vehicle I drove where the light annoyed me so much.

I'll still happily drive the Raptor whenever possible, but will prefer it on cloudy days.
