There are Ford trucks, then there are Ford F-150 pickups, as well as the F-150 Raptor. This supercharged mover has better design options, a rugged interior, and the ability to traverse most terrains. All this from a ride you can "pick up" at Pearson Ford in Zionsville, IN.
Price for a F-150 Raptor will start you off near $43,000, and top off closer to $50,000 depending on options.
This truck is 6.4 inches wider than a standard F-150, as well as a longer wheelbase. Still, the F-150 variant is able to go vertical up steep cliffs and desert landscapes. Its 411-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 gives the vehicle a wonderful growl as it heads up trail, and receives a city/hwy fuel economy rating of 11/16 mpg to boot.
"The two improvements most important here were the truck's new Torsen front differential and a front-facing camera," according to Motor Trend. "The Torsen improves grip in the front end of the truck. This one uses a helical gearset to send torque to the front wheel that has the best traction."1
"The Torsen improves the Raptor's crawling capability and got the truck up obstacles that it couldn't have overcome a year ago."2
