3. 2013 Ford F-150 Raptor

As a straight from the factory package, the F-150 Raptor is a mean-looking off road machine that’s capable of dune bashing with the best custom rides on the road.

Not one to be bashful, the Raptor’s appearance is that of an F-150 on steroids, with a roided-out engine to match. Under the hood lives a 6.2-liter V8, putting out 411 hp, but more importantly, 434 lb-ft of torque. To help its owner conquer the backwoods, the Raptor is equipped with a full size spare tire, a front mounted camera to see obstacles ahead, beadlock tires, front skid plate and FOX racing shocks.

It all sounds good, but the stat that really lets you know that this is a serious off-roader is the 11.2 inches of front suspension travel, and 12.1 inches of rear travel.
