Edmunds decided to inject some fact into the fray over repair costs for the aluminum 2015 Ford F-150: it bought a $52,000 long-term F-150 and clouted it with a sledgehammer. Twice. Then it drove the truck to a Ford dealer to get it repaired. Seven days later it had a restored truck and a bill.
The next generation of the Ford F-150 Raptor pickup truck looks to be more off-road capable than ever before, combining a brand-new, specially designed, high-strength steel frame, aluminum bodywork, a 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine, a 10-speed automatic transmission and a new set of Fox Racing shocks.

And true to form, here he is putting it to the test in the latest video from Monster Energy and Hoonigan Racing.
