2010 Ford Raptor: Get a Grip

February 15, 2011


The steering wheel in our Raptor is probably one of the best I've ever laid my hands on. Yes, a truck has one of the best steering wheels I've ever used.

The 3 and 9 o'clock position is perfectly suited to my hands. The race contoured rim is fairly hefty and It has such a positive, in-control grip that I feel like I'm at the control wheel of a jet.

You know what it reminds me of?

In my imagination, this is the kind of grip KITT's steering wheel would be like.


If the Raptor had KITT's Turbo Boost, those jumps off of sand dunes would be that much cooler.
