The all-new Chevy Reaper

 

 

 

 

 

 

When it comes to pickup trucks, both the Ford Raptor and Chevy Reaper are obviously not your everyday vehicles. Designed to conquer some of the Earth’s most demanding environments, these high-performance vehicles have been outfitted with specially engineered components for bombing down rooted trails, crawling over huge boulders and tearing across barren desert landscapes.  And like it has always been in the civilian-pickup-truck world, both Chevy and Ford produce two of the most capable options. Compare the Ford Raptor vs Chevy Reaper today to see which one will be wearing the 2014 off-road crown!

The Raptor Interior

 

From the moment the Ford Raptor snarled out onto the scene in 2009, it has been the undisputed off-road champion. Molded with beefier curves and a wider stance, the Raptor sits on rock-hungry 35-inch BFG tires and delivers four-wheel drive fun on any surface. Keeping things at a drivable state, the Raptor also feature specially modified Fox Racing shocks that use jet-style fluid to keep its massive body from bottoming out when bouncing around. Additionally, the Ford Raptor features functional 13.4-inches of ground clearance in the rear and 11.2-inches in the front.

Under the Raptors uniquely molded hood sits a ferocious 6.2-liter V-8 engine that outputs 411 horsepower and 434-lb-feet of torque. The Raptor is rated to pull 6,000 lbs. of trailer weight, and boasts a payload capacity of 930 lbs. And of course, the Raptor comes standard as a 4WD vehicle. On the inside, the Raptor features a fairly civilized interior design with top luxury features like an in-dash interface and leather upholstered seats.

Supercharged and ready to play!

New to the scene, is the Chevy Reaper. The first off-road ready production truck Chevy has released in a long time, it faces stiff competition in the Ford Raptor vs Chevy Reaper battle. However, as it stands now, Chevy looks to be up to the challenge. With the help from Southern Comfort Automotive, the Chevy Reaper features some of its own off-road swag. Jacked up with 20-inch beadlock rims, high-intensity flood lights, its own version of Fox Racing shocks, a ultra-tough skip plate and high clearance bumper, the Reaper looks very much the part to give the Raptor a serious run for its money.

Even though the Reaper’s looks are sure to cause quite the buzz on its own, where it cashes the check is under the hood. Out snarling the Raptor by 139 horsepower, the Reaper features a supercharged V-8 engine that produces 550 horsepower. Very few details have been released about the new Chevy Reaper, but it’s safe to say it’s definitely a serious contender to take the off-road production truck crown.
