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

trucks up the TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet Mega towing torture test in classic
