Ford F-150 “Raptor Assault” Gives Raptor Owners Free Off-Road InstructionPosted in News on January 23, 2017
Ford will give owners of the 2017 F-150 Raptor the chance to hone their off-road driving skills in the just-announced Raptor Assault program. Offered for free to new owners of the off-road pickup, Raptor Assault will take place in the high desert of Utah and comprise both classroom education and in-truck practice.
According to the company, the newest Ford Performance program will introduce owners to the high-tech features and impressive capability, with rockcrawling, high-speed driving, side-hilling, hill descent, and braking on the docket. Ford hopes the program will help new F-150 Raptors to understand their new trucks’ capabilities and become better drivers, though we’re sure they’ll have fun learning, too.
Owners will be pleased to know Ford Performance will provide its own Raptors and safety gear. In addition to the off-roading instruction, Raptor Assault participants can opt for additional on-road performance driving instruction at the Utah Motorsports Campus. Ford will provide instruction and two meals per day, with participants responsible for travel, hotel, and dinner costs.
The Raptor Assault website will provide prospective participants with schedule information, guidelines, and rules as they become available. Raptor Assault is the fourth program offered by Ford Performance Racing School, following programs designed for the Shelby GT350, Focus and Fiesta ST, and Focus RS.
