The 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor does not compete with many other trucks.

The only true competitors  might be from Ram. The Ram Runner certainly competes with the Raptor but this truck cannot be order from the factory. On the other hand the Ram’s Power Wagon can be purchased with all of the odd-roads parts from y our local dealership but this truck is more of a rock crawler than dessert runner.

In Episode 3 of this long-term test the 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, Roman takes the truck off-road in the Colorado Rockies and gives you his take on how well Ford did in designing a pickup that can take on the sands of Baja and yet scale the mountains of Colorado as well.

That’s why we at TFLtruck choose the 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor as our first long term test truck. Usually truck manufacturers supply us with pickups to test for a week at a time. We wanted to test the best selling truck in the land for durability and reliability which meant buying a Ford F-150. But not just any Ford F-150, the most powerful and the most off-road worthy version that Ford builds.
