Motor Trend and Ken Block Get Wild in the Desert With the 2017 Ford Raptor



You’d be hard pressed to find an off-road ready pickup that’s as insane as the 2017 Ford Raptor. So new that people are still working out what it’s capable of, Motor Trend has risen to the challenge in one of their most in-depth “Ignition” episodes yet. With reviewer Jonny Lieberman and the renowned Ken Block at the helm, they took on the California dunes.

In the first half of the video above, we get a rundown of the Raptor’s capabilities, including just how tough that high-strength steel, fully-boxed frame holds up under extreme torture. Built so it won’t bend during more wild stunts, that’ll allay the concerns of many (the shots of the truck doing donuts and power slides won’t hurt either). There’s also a rundown of the truck’s agile sprint time on sand, as well as some positively nuts stunts where the Raptor actually gets air.

To experience the new Raptor, schedule a time with our Ford dealership in Clovis, NM at your convenience. We’d be more than happy to show you some of the features of this off-road beast in person.
