Ford Raptor Stuck In Snow: Truck Or Driver's Fault?
November 13th, 2017
As far as off-road is concerned, the Ford F-150 Raptor is one of the most capable trucks on the market. It's one of the best on the market not only due to Fox Racing shocks and all-wheel-drive system but Ford also threw in a set of heavy-duty BFGoodrich KO2 tires designed to take on any terrain. Which obviously includes snow.
So one would think it would be able to drive over just about all terrains - unless you put a driver that doesn't know what they're doing behind the wheel.
/Drive Mike Spinelli took a Raptor and headed the frozen tundra of Iceland. It was there that he came across a seemingly small amount of snow on the ground (for Iceland at least). And although the Raptor was more than capable and up for the job, Spinelli somehow beached the truck which resulted in it having to be towed out by a rescue.
Of course, co-host Chris Harris, couldn't pass up the opportunity to lecture him on proper driving technique. So basically, moral of the story is just because your truck is capable of the situation you're in doesn't mean you don't have to be. The truck can't do all the work for you.
