In their latest episode of Epic Drives, Motor Trend took the Ford SVT F-150 Raptor and tossed it into the wild and dangerous Mohave Desert, California. The model is driven by Arthur St. Antoine, who put on an incredible show behind the wheel of this amazing pickup truck.

For those of you who do not remember, the Ford SVTF-150 Raptor is offered with a 6.2-liter V-8 engine that delivers a total of 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to an electronic six-speed automatic transmission that features a tow/haul mode and SelectShift Automatic functionality.

If you are interested in this model, it can be yours for $43,630 - a pretty hefty price if you consider a base F-150 is priced at just $23,670.

Watch the video to see how fun it can be to drive the F-150 Raptor into the desert.

The Ford SVT Raptor looks nice and it looks like a powerful pick-up truck. It seems impressive that it could endure the hot temperature of the Mojave desert and desert road.
