Ford has released a new advertisement for the 2012 F-150 SVT Raptor, and while it's entertaining, the clip is a good bit more demure than the footage we've seen from the company in the past. Gone are the shots of the off-road bruiser sailing through the desert air. Instead, the truck has turned its attention to muddy, wooded trails to show off its new 4.10 Torsen limited-slip front end, hill-descent control and front camera with integrated washer.
So, has Ford pulled in the reins on the Raptor after at least a handful of overzealous owners bent their vehicles' frames after aggressive jumping? Hard to say. The footage was shot at Ford's Romeo Proving Grounds in Michigan, which doesn't offer much in the way of jumps. Thus, the lack of airborne footage could be because of the location, or it could be that Ford chose the location because it didn't want to show the truck piling over big jumps.
