When the release of a new, rugged pickup truck is on the horizon, the excitement of fans and enthusiasts is palpable. And while the automaker would love to satisfy these people immediately, it is important to thoroughly test the vehicle before it sees release. In the case of the 2017 F-150 Raptor, Ford has been hard at work ensuring that this is the best possible truck, ready to take on all the challenges drivers can throw at it.

As Ford's off-road conqueror, the F-150 Raptor faces a lot of scrutiny from the adventurous types that live for the thrill of crushing wild terrain. In a new video we can see Ford testing a prototype Raptor, on the terrain that many drivers will likely throw at it. We can pretty much guarantee that seeing it in action will at least pique your interest, if not add fuel to the fires of desire for this forthcoming truck.
