Ford Raptor and Jeep Wrangler: two titans of of off-road capability

The two most extreme off-road vehicles have been put to the test. The Raptor can eat up dirt like nothing else on the road. The 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor can almost jump over a body of water with its 411 horsepower V-8 engine. The Jeep Wrangler was made for off-roading adventure. Never has a vehicle been so synonymous with off-road capability than the Jeep Wrangler. We look at the an off-road comparison of the Ford SVT Raptor vs Jeep Wrangler close up.

All bets are off when the Ford Raptor and Jeep Wrangler jump off the highway. While both of these off-roading monsters are menacing on the outside, they can fitted the most advanced technology on the market. Take the Raptor, for example. Even back in 2012, the Raptor was fitted with off-road accouterments like a touch screen display that showed your truck’s tilt level. The Raptor also features four auxiliary switches the enables drivers to attach electrical accessories. Compared to the Raptor, the Wranglers falls far short in terms of horsepower. The Wrangler is not designed to over power or intimidate, which the Ford SVT Raptor surely does.

Both vehicles let you travel to places off-road you once considered unreachable. It’s really just a matter of how fast you want to get there!

Off-road capability for the ages

While we feel that the Ford Raptor may offer a few more options than the Wrangler, you can be sure with either vehicle that you’ll be able to run circles around the competition off of the pavement. The competition will continue in 2017 as the Ford SVT Raptor will be released to much anticipation. While no one anticipates many changes for the Jeep Wrangler, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor will get a brand new aluminum body with a Twin-Turbo V-6 that should provide even more power!
