Into the Air
Showcasing the quick acceleration and excellent suspension, Ford set us up to launch the Raptor off of a jump. Staged at the base of a hill, we stabbed the throttle and accelerated up the steep incline. Cresting the hill, the Ranger took flight, rising a foot or so off the ground, then landing smoothly and still in complete control. We can’t say how often launching the truck into the air may occur in a typical drive, but it’s nice to know the Raptor is capable. Plus, it was loads of fun.
