With a name like Raptor, you just know this truck would be able to “rip” it up on the off-road trails. And that’s exactly what it does in the video above.

Host Andrew Santino is the lucky man who got to drive the Ford SVT Raptor in Banff, AB. He also took the truck out to Canmore, Alta., to do some off-roading. The video is part of the Behind the Lights series on mademan.com.

Watch Andrew get an in-depth tutorial on the Raptor before he takes it out on the terrain. He learns about the truck’s beastly 6.2-litre V8 engine – which boasts 411 horsepower – as well as how it’s built to put in work on off-roading adventures. And don’t worry; Andrew made sure to stay on approved trails. As well, no natural scenery was harmed in the making of this video. Just saying.

If you had a Raptor, where would you take it? Let us know in the comments below.

Thanks to Banff, which provided approval for us to film in its park. All off-roading was filmed on location in Canmore, Alta., on approved trails.
