Ford Racing Raptor Assault Program Announced
New Program Offers Multiple Ways to Ride and Drive Truck Off-Road
Since its introduction in 2010, no other truck since Ford's F-150 Lightning street warrior caused such a stir in the truck enthusiast community as the Raptor. The Raptor's shrewd combination of on-road manners and off-road capability made it an instant hit. The addition of the 411-hp, 6.2-liter V-8 and available Super Crew configuration in 2011 broadened its appeal to an even larger audience. Ford enthusiast forums are awash with photos, videos, and posts about owners' off-road exploits, some resulting in unintended warranty-voiding consequences. But a new program in collaboration between Ford Racing and Miller Motorsports Park in Utah, allows Raptor enthusiasts and owners to experience the full capabilities of the truck without fear of having to shell out thousands to cover for their off-road indiscretions.
The Ford Raptor Assault program offers participants three levels of experience for those who simply want a thrilling ride, or those who crave a more hands-on experience. For those who are happy sitting in the passenger seat, there's a hot laps ride-along program, a three-hour Raptor Assault Experience which gives participants a hands-on crack at an 8-acre rock-crawling course, and 22-acre high-speed off-road short course, and a full-day off-road driving school that adds a 900-acre desert racing course, and hot laps with a professional driver. Current Raptor owners receive a special discounted price to all the experiences.
