Raptor is AWESOME

Everyone knows that 2017 F-150 Raptor is an awesome truck. Here’s just another reason why it’s so great. Recently, the Raptor won the highest truck honor at the Northwest Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year Mudfest. This award is given after a truck goes through two whole days of intense on-road handling and off-road test courses. The 28 members of the Northwest Automotive Press Association at Ridge Motorsports Park in Shelton, Washington determine the winner.

This year, the competition included 27 sport utility and crossover vehicles in six categories. Those categories are: compact, premium compact, family, premium, pickups and extreme capability.

“The pickups category was extremely tough this year,” said Tuan Huynh, NWAPA Mudfest Event Chair., Northwest Automotive Press Association. “Ford F-150 Raptor won the hearts of our members for its prowess both on-road and off over two days of rigorous testing.”
