[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.

2014 Ford Raptor 6.2L vs F-250 6.2L Mashup Ike Gauntlet Towing Test ( Part 1)
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2014 Ford SVT Raptor does not directly compete against the Ford F-250. But in this case both trucks have one significant thing in common...they both come equipped with the same Ford 6.2L engine. In fact the Raptor's 6.2L V8 is tuned with a few more ponies from the factory. So how do these two different trucks with the same engine compare when it comes to towing. We decide to find out by taking both trucks up the TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet Mega towing torture test in classic mashup review. The Ike Gauntlet is a timed run up one of America's steepest highways from 9,000 feet above sea level to the top of the mountain at entrance to the Eisenhower Tunnel in Colorado.

Watch the 2015 Ford F-450 6.7L Diesel Super Duty Debut at the State Fair of Texas
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) Ford introduced its 2015 F-Series Super Duty lineup at the Texas State Fair and the big news is a better Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel engine. They've also beefed up the F-450 to make it even tougher. The new Power Stroke features a larger GT37 turbocharger that measures 72.5 millimeters in diameter versus the smaller GT32 it replaces which came in at 64 millimeters. This means Exhaust gases have a larger surface area to spin the turbo so you'll get extra power.

Raptors are high performance desert machines, but we found one that earns it's owner a living each week banging around on an obscure desert compound.

2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Top 5 Likes & Dislikes (Episode 6)
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is a capable and even useful pickup truck that can serve as an everyday drive. But it is far from perfect. In fact there are a number of areas that need improvement. In Episode 6 of of this long-term test of the 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, Roman takes a look at the Top 5 things he likes about the new Raptor and of course the Top 5 things that he dislikes. The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is one of the baddest trucks in the land. It can tow 8000 pounds, seat 5 comfortably, haul all of your stuff and still race across the desert at over 100 MPH is perfect air-conditioned comfort. That's why we at TFLtruck choose the 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor as our first long term test truck. Usually truck manufacturers supply us with pickups to test for a week at a time. We wanted to test the best selling truck in the land for durability and reliability which meant buying a Ford F-150. But not just any Ford F-150, the most powerful and the most off-road worthy version that Ford builds.
