Ford Raptor Assault Program

Feb 8, 2017

Category: Rides

The Ford F-150 Raptor is one of the most badass factory-tuned vehicles you can drive off the lot. Not only is it a fully capable towing pickup – which can pull between 6,000 and 8,000 pounds – but it also comes standard with an engine that produces 450 horsepower and 510 foot-pounds of torque. And that’s a lot of truck to be driving around if you’re not ready for it. Thankfully, the folks at Ford have thought about that and are offering free training to anyone who buys a new 2017 Raptor.

Based out of the Utah Motorsports Campus – which is a massive driving facility that offers everything from well-groomed asphalt courses to punishing off-road terrain – the Ford Performance Racing School is accepting registration for their Raptor Assault Program. That means literally anyone who buys a brand new Raptor model F-150 can sign up to take a comprehensive course in driving that very truck on the terrain for which it was designed. From rock crawling, to desert running, to knee-deep mud, Ford’s experts will teach you how to handle it – all while outlining everything you need to know about your new vehicle. Registration is happening now for dates between April and November, but you’d better sign up quick, because we doubt the spots will last. [Purchase]
