Courtesy of The Drive: Let’s face it: The Ford F-150 Raptor really doesn’t have any true competitors. The Ram Rebel may look the part, but it’s not nearly as badass as the Baja-bred Blue Oval; on the flip side, while the Chevy Colorado ZR2 may be able to keep up off-road, it’s at least one size too small to truly take on the full-sized Ford.
No, to find something really capable of keeping up with the Raptor, you need to go outside your comfort zone a little bit. Or, in the case of the your humble author’s recent experience at facing off at Monticello Motor Club’s off-road course against an F-150 Raptor driven by TV’s Mike Spinelli, as we like to call him around the office, you have to go reeeeeeeally far outside of it.
Because the Honda Pioneer 1000-5 Limited Edition utility vehicle I was driving was distinctly lacking in windshield.
