FTE’s Off-Road Adventure in the 2017 Raptor (Photos)

Ford Raptor

Exploring the Raptor’s limits in its natural habitat was a lot harder than we thought, if not impossible.

We waited a long time to get behind the wheel of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. Touted as the most capable off-road truck ever produced by the Blue Oval, the all-new Raptor promised new levels of technology and performance. So, did it deliver? Does Ford really have a gold mine in its hands, or was it all talk?

We spent an entire day at an off-road facility in northwest Indiana evaluating the Raptor’s off-road prowess, while the 90-minute drive there tested the truck’s more civil characteristics. You can check out our in-depth review to see exactly how our day developed, and whether the 2017 Raptor is everything we thought it would be.

But before you do that, enjoy these shots! And know that thrashing a Raptor was much more fun than these photos show. However, for the sake of job security we had to skip a few “hardcore” trails. If only Ford didn’t expect us to return the truck in the same way we received it. Sigh…
