Raptors Blast Through Baja: Truckin’ Fast Wednesday Presented by Nitto Tire

By -

A dozen modified Ford F-150 SVT Raptors storming along the Baja Peninsula draws local crowds and makes for one great, action-packed video.

The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is arguably one of the greatest factory-build off-road trucks ever. The Baja Peninsula is arguably one of the greatest off-roading playgrounds in North America, if not the world. The Raptor and Baja seemingly go hand-in-hand, so when a dozen of the SVT F-150 owners take their modified pickups to Baja – you know that there is going to be some great video footage.

Raptor in Baja

El Scorpions Run 2016

The video above was posted online by the Raptor Expeditions YouTube account and it features a group of Raptor F-150s on the El Scorpions Run 2016.

The El Scorpions Run 2016 was an event held by Raptor Expeditions during which a dozen owners of modified Ford F-150 SVT Raptor pickups made a thousand-mile run down the Baja Peninsula. As you can see in the video above, these trucks all appear to be heavily modified, so while a stock Raptor might be able to handle the majority of this trip, these modified trucks were able to handle the toughest obstacles at high speeds.

These high performance Ford pickups spent a few days racing through Mexico, charging through mud and sand, soaring off of jumps and hitting insane speeds on the long, dusty trails of Baja. As the video progresses, we get to see all of these SVT pickups in action as regular, everyday F-150 owners push their built Raptors to points that would land you in jail if attempted on US roads.

In addition to all of the Truckin Fast Raptors, the video shows the team of drivers at stops along the way, along with showing off some of the colorful locations on the trail. We can also see how locals in Mexico rush into the streets to see a fleet of high performance American pickups blasting through their tiny towns. At the end of the video, we get to see a map of the general area of the run, for those considering a drive like this of their own.

Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
