What the Editors at Popular Mechanics Had to Say About the Impressiveness of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor
If you’re a regular reader of our Brandon Ford Blog, you know how much we love everything about the entire Ford F-Series. That means we talk about it a lot. And we’re going to continue to talk about it. Especially since all signs point to even more improvements after the unveiling of the 2018 Ford F-150. So, this time around, we decided to let you hear all about the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor straight from the mouths of those that judged it, who went so far as to say the 2017 F-150 Raptor is a “vehicle that transcends the competition.”
“We have only nine categories covering the entire car market, so by design, winning isn’t easy. The Raptor is to a standard F-150 what Bruce Banner is to the Incredible Hulk. You can do 60 mph across terrain that would have most trucks smashing their oil pans at 30.” – Ezra Dyer, Popular Mechanics automotive editor
