After two days of harsh off-road conditions and on-road handling, the 2017 F-150 Raptor came out on top, scoring the highest truck honors in the Northwest Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year Mudfest.

The awards weren't handed out lightly; nearly thirty members of the Northwest Automotive Press Association at Ridge Motorsports Park in Shelton, Washington, tested the contenders to determine which deserved accolades. In total, 27 crossover and sport utility vehicles participated in the Mudfest in premium compact, family, pickups, premium, compact and extreme capability segments. With its 3.5L V6 engine, 450 horsepower and 8,000-pound towing capacity, it's no surprise that the Raptor performed as well as it did.

“The pickups category was extremely tough this year,” Tuan Huynh, the event chair of the NWAPA Mudfest, Northwest Automotive Press Association, said. “Ford F-150 Raptor won the hearts of our members for its prowess both on-road and off over two days of rigorous testing.” Watch more in the video below!



This win is one of many the Raptor's picked up this year; recently, it was dubbed Pickup Truck of the Year by FOUR WHEELER and Best Pickup for 2017 by Cars.com.

The F-150 Raptor and its more classic sibling are available for you to test-drive at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington today. Stop on by!
