Ford made waves at a recent auto show by unveiling their outrageously powerful F-650-based Mega Raptor 6×6 pickup truck. Packing a high-performance 750 horsepower engine and six rugged wheels, this $300,000 beast of a vehicle is aimed squarely at hardcore off-road enthusiasts seeking extreme thrills. As Ford’s halo vehicle that pushes boundaries, the Mega Raptor 6×6 delivers insane power and capability for tackling the toughest terrain on earth.
Heart-Pounding Power plant
At the core of the Mega Raptor 6×6 is a stunning powertrain featuring a twin-turbo 6.7-liter V8 diesel engine that puts out an incredible 750 horses along with a mountainous 1050 lb-ft of torque. This gives the 6-wheel drive truck the grunt to roar from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds while towing over 30,000 pounds. The power is handled through a 10-speed automatic transmission that ensures the engine is always in the right gear for conquering muddy pits, steep hills, and giant boulders. Matching the power of the engine is an upgraded suspension, custom wheels, and tires up to 54 inches tall.
Bespoke Luxury Interior
Despite being ready for rugged terrain, the Mega Raptor 6×6 offers bespoke luxury on the interior. The 4 full-sized doors provide ease of entry and exit, while passengers are treated to leather captain’s chairs with blue accent stitching. Interior features include a 12-inch touchscreen display, a premium audio system, rugged floor mats, and accent lighting. Buyers also get options for customized color schemes, upholstery materials, and even engraved door sill plates. So while the Mega Raptor can thriller-seek across harsh landscapes, owners will be comfortable and entertained inside.
Aggressive Styling Showcases Capability
One look at the MegaRaptor 6×6 leaves no doubt this is much more than a work truck. Its imposing grille and enormous INTERCO Super Swamper TSL tires mounted on 20-inch rims give it an undeniably aggressive and athletic look. Widened and flared fenders accommodate the rear dualies while also enhancing the muscular stance. An integrated rear bumper proudly displays a pair of recovery hooks and high-powered LED auxiliary lighting. Equally menacing from front to rear, the signature Ford oval is incorporated between bold FORD lettering emblazoned on the tailgate. From all vantage points, the MegaRaptor’s styling looks ready to devour the most intimidating terrain.
Six-wheel drive Train for Ultimate Traction
Naturally, going from four to six wheels involves much more than just adding rear dualies. To maximize traction and performance off-road, engineers specially designed a 4WD system that fully utilizes all 6 tires evenly. Power flows mechanically from the engine through two separate transfer cases – one primary and one auxiliary – before getting distributed to all three axles. Sophisticated electronics along with an advanced traction control system adapt power distribution in real-time for optimal grip over uneven surfaces. Locking differentials are standard equipment both front and rear. This robust 4WD system gives the MegaRaptor greater capabilities for crawling over obstacles that leave ordinary 4×4 trucks spinning helplessly.
King of the Desert Running Wild
From the Baja peninsula to Africa’s Sahara desert, the MegaRaptor 6×6 is designed and engineered for total dominance over sand dunning and desert running. Its long-travel suspension soaks up giant whoops and landing jumps without breaking stride. Extended wheel travel keeps tires firmly planted for maximum traction up steep dunes. Skid plates shield vital components like oil pans and differentials when sliding sideways along towering sandy walls. And the truck’s immense power and clever 4WD system prevent buried wheels and stuck situations in loose sand. From crowded weekend dune events to wide-open desert landscapes, the MegaRaptor 6×6 rules with performance no production 4×4 can match.
Specialized for Extreme Rock Crawling
Beyond wide-open spaces, the MegaRaptor 6×6 handles technical terrain including boulder fields, rocky trails, and extreme rock crawling zones. Its 54-inch maximum tire height, along with 36 inches of ground clearance underneath, allows driving up and over particularly tall obstacles. The dual rear axles improve approach and departure angles crucial for clearing rocks and fallen logs. Rigid steel bumpers protect vital components when rubbing up against immovable objects. The MegaRaptor’s slower-speed rock crawling prowess benefits from copious low-end torque rather than sheer horsepower. From the iconic Rubicon Trail to the harsh Australian Outback, this specialty Ford truck is engineered to master rugged terrain.
