Beast Mode in the Ford F-150 Raptor SVT
The one week that I had this beast was the one week Manitoba was bone dry. After asking several farmer friends if I could help aerate their fields, I was told there’s no mud for miles. I settled for driving 2012 Ford F-150 Raptor SVT to Seddon’s Corner by Beaujejour, Manitoba for a little dusty off-road fun. Under the hood is a 6.2L V8 and pumps out 411hp and 434 lb.-ft. of torque and can demolish any gravel road in our fine province, and perfect for the low-speed off-road adventures at Seddon’s Corner. The front camera system worked like a charm as I drove up, down and through the gravel pits. The front camera system engages during low-speed and helped navigate along steep inclines and around large boulders.
Go figure, the day after I return the Raptor, Winnipeg gets hit by an early rain, sleet, slush and snow storm. Mud was everywhere. The 2012 Ford F-150 Raptor SVT 4×4 SuperCrew media vehicle, as tested was $64,749.
