So wait, I thought it was supposed to be 760 HP? Its "only" 700 HP? The TRX fanboys are gonna love this with their 2 more HP.

WTF did I just watch? 1980’s RC truck commercials had more relevant product information.



Ford’s Raptor R advertisement bears more resemblance to an anti-drug PSA. If you are perceiving the moon turning red and on fire along with glowing eyed wildlife and alien hands fondling the sideview mirror, you probably need a medical intervention, not a high performance truck.
