Get to Know Ford's Fiercest Pickup

There aren’t many cars sold today that have no peers, but the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor takes its off-road performance far beyond any factory-built rivals. The redesigned 2017 Raptor is a street-legal desert racing truck that you can buy at your local Ford dealer. Pricing starts at $48,860.

So, can it fly? You probably won’t want to jump it Dukes of Hazzard-style, but launch it off a dune and all 5,525 pounds will effortlessly leave the earth. With massive amounts of suspension travel, a stout frame, and beefy skid plating, landing won’t be a wallet-damaging ordeal.

The company demonstrated the Raptor’s endurance by racing a nearly stock truck in the SCORE International Baja 1000, where it completed the grueling 854.5-mile event. The crew then hopped back in and drove it home to the United States.

Most car buyers won’t do anything that extreme with their new pickup, but check out the following slides to see 10 cool things that you can do.
