Epic Drives: Cheating Death Valley in a Ford SVT Raptor

By Matthew Askari | January 27, 2013
For those of us that live in Los Angeles, the madness and crush of the city, the sensory overload of any city, can be too much. On the latest episode of Epic Drives, the crew escape the city to the wild and desolate Mojave Dessert. But the question remains, what vehicle is suited to tackle such a feral environment? The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, of course. With off-road capability as extensive as its name, the Raptor extracts power from its massive 6.2-liter V-8 engine, good for 411 horsepower. The crew encounters snow, sand dunes, mountains, elevation changes and desolate landscape. From old mining country, to old native American trails and lands, this is one truly Epic Drive.  You can catch all the action and the beautiful scenery in the video below.
