Ford SVT Raptor Wins PickupTrucks.com Ultimate 4X4 Shootout

CHICAGO, Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PickupTrucks.com, the authority for new and used pickup truck buyers, announced today the Ford SVT Raptor as the winner of its Ultimate 4X4 Shootout. The shootout pitted the Ford SVT Raptor V-8, Nissan Frontier PRO-4X V-6, Ram power Wagon ST V-8 and Toyota Tacoma TRD Baja V-6 against each other in a series of tests to determine which is the top 4x4 on the market.

"There was a lot to like about Ford's SVT Raptor, whether for just driving around town or navigating a nasty stretch of remote terrain," said Mark Williams, PickupTrucks.com editor. "We searched for some of the toughest terrain we could find and were most impressed with how well the electronic controls meshed perfectly with the suspension and four-wheel drive system – all of it worked seamlessly together to help make the Raptor the clear winner."

Experts from PickupTrucks.com and Four Wheeler Magazine teamed up to put these four off-road trucks through 10 tests that included acceleration, braking, fuel economy, value, hauling, overall ride, an off-road package analysis, and a series of tough off-road challenges.

"The goal of this shootout was simple—we put four trucks with four different 4x4 off-road packages through the most extreme challenges we could find in order to determine which factory off-road package was the best all-around champion," said Williams.

The Toyota TRD Baja V-6 was a close runner-up, placing first or second in more than half of the tests. Following the Baja is the Ram Power Wagon in third with the Nissan Frontier PRO-4X in fourth.
