Ken Block tears up Moab in a SVC Ford F-150 Raptor. Block introduced this Raptor SVC earlier this year, but just now is breaking it in out in Utah. The first part of the video explains all the modifications on the Raptor to make it a super truck. Block partnered up with California-based Raptor-focused SVC Off-road, who also did his RaptorTRAX.
Almost every part of the 2017 Raptor has been altered. SVC tuned the twin-turbo V6 engine, plus added a SVC intercooler, a SVC intake, a SPD turbo adapters and a Stainless Works exhaust system. In the video, Block estimates that the Raptor SVC runs around 550 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. To accommodate the Moab terrain, SVC added a Mid Travel Kit with Fox 3.5 bypass shocks in the front, Deaver Suspension leaf springs, SVC traction bars and Fox 4.0 five-tube bypass shocks in the rear. The tires are 37-inch Toyo Open Country M/T’s with 17-inch Fifteen52 Turbomac HD wheels.
The Avalanche Grey Raptor has tons of exterior upgrades including a Gen2 Mojave front bumper and skid plate, a Gen2 Baja rear bumper, a Gen2 Bypass bed rack with tire storage and wide ADV fiberglass front fenders. To hit the trails at night, it runs the Rugged Ridge 50-inch light bars up top and a 30-inch light bar in the front bumper. Don’t forget the reflective Hoonigan logo graphics that give it the glow at night.
Block commented, “I’m really excited with how this project turned out. I’ve worked with SVC in the past with my RaptorTRAX project, so they were my number one choice to partner with on a properly sorted, more desert fun-oriented Ford Raptor build. Obviously, I wanted a bit more power, but I also wanted something that I knew I could push beyond the factory setup when I’m ripping around in the desert of southern Utah.” Watch the video to see Ken Block tear up the desert out in Moab. You won’t be disappointed.
