Ken Block gets the ultimate toy: Ford F-150 RaptorTrax

Article by Christian A., on January 21, 2014

Ken Block has a new toy, the Ford F-150 RaptorTRAX a.k.a. the ultimate backcountry snowboard expedition vehicle, which I am sure that many of you would like to try it (including us of course). What’s more interesting is that the vehicle you see in the photo is actually the fastest snowcat for backcountry snowboarding and will be the star in the upcoming video that will be released Winter 2014/15.

As expected, the truck is based on the F-150 Raptor pickup truck prepared by Ford Racing and further enhanced by Special Vehicle Concepts in California. As you can see in the photos, the truck features snowboard racks, a roof basket, a rear-mounted winch, interior storage for snacks and drinks, an exterior stereo setup for blasting music on-site and plenty of exterior-mounted Rigid Industries lighting to help guide the way.

Moreover, the RaptorTRAX is powered by a Whipple supercharged 6.2L V8 and comes with Recaro seating and four burly Mattracks. Honestly, we can’t wait to see this baby in a full video later this year. Still, for those who can’t wait, you can see it on display at Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado, later this week with Monster Energy.

"This project is something I've had in my head for awhile now," said Block. "I absolutely love my daily driver Ford Raptor, especially since I live out here in the mountains of Park City, so to build out this mountain assault vehicle with a Raptor as the base platform made total sense to me. It's an absolute beast of a machine and I'm stoked with how it's turned out. Next up is for me to take it deep into the backcountry ASAP to help me and some friends slay some powder on our snowboards for a video project due out later this year." [source: Hoonigan Racing]
