The Ford F-150 Raptor is an off-road monster in all the best possible ways. It’s hugely popular and even those who won’t ever truly take advantage of its capabilities are often drawn to it because it looks badass. Ford gets it, so for the Ranger Raptor they released a teaser video to highlight its badass-ness.
It looks just like a trailer for an upcoming action movie. Maybe Fast and Furious 12 or whatever the heck number they’re up to these days. It even has a rating card like you’d find in front of a real movie trailer. Instead of the usual ratings, however, this one is rated “B for Badass.”
It also has a unique warning tailored less to ensuring your kids aren’t exposed to sex, drugs, and violence and more toward making sure you don’t get any ideas and try to pull off what you see in the video. The warning reminds you that this was a controlled situation with stunt drivers, so unless that’s you, don’t try this stuff.
It starts off with not a Ford Ranger Raptor but a bunch of guys on motorcycles riding down the road when the truck comes up fast in the rearview mirror. It passes them without any effort and heads out across a dirt road. Let the badass antics commence.
There’s plenty of dirt flung up by the tires and one unheeded warning sign, which the Ranger Raptor runs right over. It happens to warn of explosive materials, so you know this is going to end with and explosion.
Next up is a dirt road down into some type of mining operation. The Ranger Raptor gleefully tackles this challenge as two ATVs give chase. The Ranger Raptor barely escapes and then does a couple donuts, because that’s the kind of thing you do in these situations, or so we hear.
There’s a giant mud puddle splash, additional chasing by a pack of angry dirt bikers, and of course, some slow-motion airtime. The Ranger Raptor emerges victorious. But wait, there’s more. Check out the very end of the video for the last bit of action.
It’s quite the promotional video. The only problem? You can’t get the Ford Ranger Raptor in the United States. We can always hope Ford will change its mind, because this thing looks like a heck of a lot of fun.
