How Does the Ford F-150 Raptor Drive On-Road vs Off-Road?
If you’re looking for a pickup truck that you can take off-road, then the Ford F-150 Raptor is a fantastic option. Of course, you won’t be driving it off-road all the time. So, how does the Ford F-150 Raptor drive on-road vs off-road? Can it still provide a desirable driving experience in city and highway driving?
Well, the best way to tell is by taking it for a test drive. If you’re interested, just contact us at Sanders Ford. That being said, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor recently competed in the Northwest Automotive Press Association Mudfest event. So, what does the event have to do with on-road driving?
Well, it’s because the Mudfest consists of two days full of grueling on-road handling and off-road testing evaluations, helping to find which vehicles are more than just good off-road options. When it came to the Raptor, the pickup earned top truck honors in the Northwest Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year Mudfest. This is likely thanks in part to its 450-horsepower engine pumping out 510 lb-ft of torque, as well as its segment-first 10-speed automatic transmission and Terrain Management System.
This is just one small example of how capable the Ford F-150 Raptor can be both on-road and off-road, but to experience it for yourself, you’ll just have to get behind the wheel. Don’t forget to check back to the Sanders Ford blog to learn more about Ford pickups.
