The ending seem predestined. As Ford rolled its F-150 Raptor to the startling line, all spectators smirked - knowing that this massive off-roader would prove ill-suited to the rigors of the track. It would soon sputter in defeat, undone by the sleeker (faster) capabilities of Dodge’s Challenger Hellcat. There was nothing left to do but watch… and laugh.

As Motor Authority explains, however, there was nothing humorous about this race.



The 2018 F-150 crushed all competitors... including the supercharged SRT Hellcat! Boasting a twin-turbo 3.5L V6 engine, this pick-up raced down the track - blitzing through the quarter-mile stretch in a mere 12.49-seconds. How is this possible? Motor Authority notes that Ford bolstered the Raptor with a sport-tuned suspension and a new methanol injection system (which enhances air intake and improves fuel distribution). This provided an 18 PSI pressure increase to ensure fast performance.

Critics and consumers were stunned as the F-150 revved to the podium - but we weren’t. The Novlan team knows that the 2018 Raptor has been engineered to conquer Baja territories. A flat span of pavement, therefore, poses no concern.

Want to take this pick-up for a spin? Visit our dealership today to sample the Raptor’s capabilities - and perhaps even intimidate any passing Hellcats.
