Ford has opened up a special class for people who are owners of their Ford branded Raptor. The point of these classes is not to teach driving per say, but to give the customers a taste of what their Raptors can really do in terms of heavy duty driving and off road driving.
- The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is a performance bargain. Not only do you get 450 hp to send you rocketing through traffic, there’s enough suspension travel to also rocket you through the desert at extra-legal speeds — if there were speed limits in the middle of the desert.
- However, since not everyone has the skill to pilot a machine with such high performance limits, Ford is launching the Raptor Assault program at its Ford Performance Racing School in Utah to teach owners how to get the most out of their Raptor.
- Adding to Ford’s already successful GT350 Track Attack, ST Octane Academy, and RS Adrenaline Academy, Raptor Assault will take place at the Utah Motorsports Campus — the same location where Ford’s previous Raptor training took place.
“The all-new F-150 Raptor was designed to be the ultimate, no-compromise off-road pickup with its cutting edge internal bypass suspension, six-mode Terrain Management System and 450 horsepower EcoBoost engine with massive amounts of torque.”
