[cc] 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor First Drive: Racing in the Borrego Desert

Proudly Closed Captioned. Adam Barrera at highmileage.org reviews the 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor desert racer and places it in the context of its competition. 24x7: http://twitter.com/highmileage 00:00:00.000 00:00:05.000 Back in 2006, fast street trucks were declining in popularity -- but off-road sports were growing. 00:00:10.000 Ford's Special Vehicle Team -- made a decision. Their top-secret fast truck project would meet a niche need. 00:00:15.000 There hasn't been a factory-built desert race truck -- until now. 00:00:20.000 This -- is the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. Every vent carved into the lightweight sheet-molded composite hood and fenders -- works to cool components during race conditions. 00:00:25.000 Though the Raptor is seven inches wider than a normal F-150, the Raptor's off-road gear weighs only 200 pounds more than a similarly equipped FX4. 00:00:30.000 Precision-built specialty parts from innovative suppliers make the Raptor a rolling showcase of the best desert-conquering technology. 00:00:35.000 Eck Industries once supplied lightweight engine blocks for the Ford GT supercar. Now, they supply textured running boards designed to redirect rocks aimed at the Raptor's rear fenders. 00:00:40.000 Special tread blocks, belt angles, and belt plies help the custom BF Goodrich tires traverse mud and snow. 00:00:45.000 But the Raptor's best technology is hidden behind each wheel. Its advanced long-travel suspension was engineered just hours north of the legendary Baja 1000 race. 00:00:50.000 Mountainbike innovator Fox Racing Shox uses a patented series of internal check valves to provide low amplitude damping on asphalt, and more rugged rates during severe service.. 00:00:55.000 The oil inside just one Fox Racing shock costs more than an entire conventional shock assembly. Each shock is rendered in precision-machined aircraft aluminum with anodized blue accents. 00:01:00.000 These state-of-the-art shocks are manufactured in California and shipped to Michigan for installation in each SVT Raptor. 00:01:05.000 Off-roaders -- have a love and hate relationship with technology. Electronic assistants are notorious for diluting imperative raw feel off-road. 00:01:10.000 The Raptor has its share of gadgetry, but SVT worked to give drivers complete control over the Raptor's electronics. 00:01:15.000 An "Off-Road Mode" button recalibrates the Engine Control Unit, transmission shift points, and anti-lock braking algorithms to sharpen the truck off-road -- instead of dulling its responses. 00:01:20.000 If you consider stability control to be a fun-governor, don't worry -- it can be fully defeated by holding one button. 00:01:25.000 The rear differential can be electronically locked in Two High, Four High, and Four Low modes -- to top speed. No other off-roader has that capability. 00:01:30.000 Four pre-wired auxiliary toggle switches complete the Raptor's smart suite. 00:01:35.000 The Raptor's most alluring victory is its everyday livability. A truck with this level of capability should not be streetable, but it is -- and it's an overachiever. 00:01:40.000 In tight paved corners, the Raptor's steering rack delivers delicious metallic feedback directly from the steering fork and front suspension. 00:01:45.000 It's a sensation I can only compare to shifter karts and the 1992 Suzuki Swift GTi. You have to drive this truck to understand. 00:01:50.000 Its fashion-forward interior is rendered in auspicious textures and colors. Each panel is assembled to tolerances that European brands sometimes can't achieve. 00:01:55.000 Ford's SVT Raptor isn't just a design story, a rock crawler, or a quick truck. 00:02:00.000 Because the Raptor is so versatile, it's validating for muddy Bronco owners and supercharged Lightning fans alike. 00:02:10.000 Stay tuned for an in-depth review. I'm Adam at highmileage.org.

If nothing else, such items will help you pass muster with the rest of the crowd that will buy this truck. Really, though, all you'll need to truly appreciate it is a desire to drive fast over rough terrain. This is because the Raptor is a truck — that's right, a truck — that's engineered to be driven.

2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor at the Deer Hill Rally
What would you do if Ford offered you their latest SVT Raptor with a new 6.2L V8 engine? We were given that opportunity, and so we decided to put the truck through some real world tests. We've seen it bomb through desert sand, and rip through mud, but can it climb and crawl, fit into narrow canyons, and make its way through some of the harshest terrain the U.S. has to offer? Find out in our visual review of the 2010 SVT Raptor from Ford.
