Raptor Rescue: 2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD vs F-150 Raptor Snowy Misadventure [Video]

Raptor and Tacoma in snow rescue
One thing we know for sure is: the 2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD and our 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor are remarkably off-road worthy. Both vehicles are lauded for their toughness, reliability, capability and ability to conquer just about anything Mother Nature can muster.

Or can they?

This video is part of a farewell sendoff for the 2015 Toyota Tacoma as an all new one comes out next year. This current Toyota Tacoma platform is one of the oldest amongst its competition. Despite its age, the 2015 Toyota Tacoma is still the benchmark mid-sized pickup truck – especially when it comes to capability and toughness.

… but snow can test even the toughest machine.

What happens when a hilltop at about 9,000 feet is covered with hard-packed ice and two feet of snow on top? This type of snow is a hell of an obstacle, especially when all of that powder and ice cover a rocky off-road trail! It would be rough of an off-road expert.

Our two drivers are NO experts.

Check out this video where both trucks are pushed hard by Roman and Nathan!
