Ranger Raptor Ad

I don't think this was ever shared on here, but one of the first teasers we had of the Raptor variant, aimed to show just how off road capable it is. Shame that its covered in camo, but its great to see them doing their best to abuse it.

its largely irrelevant due to the fact that now we have content that shows far more of the pre-production model.
the below picture is the best it gets so far:

I wouldn't say that its irrelevant, as its still the only off road footage that we have of the Raptor so far. Who knows how long it'll be before we get some performance tests, to determine whether not its pricing in foreign markets is justified.

That suspension definitely looks like its worth the hefty price tag that Ford spent on it. Still cant believe it cost them as much as an engine would.

Found another ad, but this one features a fully uncovered Raptor. Showcases the terrain selection, that's coming over from the F150 variant.

I'll never get tired of watching the suspension system at work in Baja mode when a pickup is going full tilt of over bumps. Just the way it absorbs everything when landing is mesmerizing to me, though it'll be infinitely better inside the vehicle.
I suppose we'll be getting a few sequels so Ford can show off the other modes like Sport and wet.

I wonder if it'll prove to be as capable at rock climbing at slower speeds. I'd like to see how it handles Moab as opposed to flat out in sand dunes. Most owners wont have the opportunity to drive it in that kind of environment.

I've seen videos of the F150 Raptor proving itself more than capable at rock climbing. Though that model comes with nearly double the power. But with rock climbing, low end power and proper tires make all the difference.
