Ken Block Unleashes the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor on Winter

If your goal is to come up with the best possible way, as a manufacturer of automobiles, to take your latest model of performance off-road truck out and have it beat on, looking in the direction of Ken Block for a little bit of assistance might not be a bad idea.

If there’s one thing that we have seen from Block over his career, it’s that this guy really can put a car or truck through its paces, torture testing it to the maximum of its abilities then being sure to let you know if your design has a weak point somewhere or not.

In this one, Ford does just that as they link up with the lead Hoonigan in charge and hook him up with the 2017 SVT Ford Raptor. I assume that the conversation went a little something like Ford throwing him a set of keys and telling him to go have fun with beating the life out of their latest off-road performance machine and I don’t think that Block had any objections to this idea.

Check out the video down below that showcases this driving wild man stretching out the legs of one of the most coveted performance trucks on the market today. The latest Raptor has sparked a lot of controversy surrounding its implementation of an EcoBoost power plant. What do you think of the latest power implementations and this video of Block doing what he does best?
