Kanye West recently purchased “two to six” Ford F-150 Raptor trucks, The New York Times reports, and he apparently uses them to get around his $14 million ranch in Cody, Wyoming, because why TF not. Curious about why he chose these whips in particular? Let’s take a closer look.
Ford’s F-150 Raptor is an upgraded version of the F-150 — aka the best-selling truck in the United States. Unlike the F-150, however, the Raptor is better suited to off-road terrains thanks to its gigantic, 17-inch aluminum wheels that are encased in all-terrain tires, its condition-adapting, racing-grade shocks, and undercarriage-protecting skid plates.
The model also boasts a twin-charged V6 engine, which translates to 450 horsepower and 510 foot-pounds of torque — that’s 160 more horsepower and basically double the torque on the F-150. Plus, its extra-wide, stacked stance arrives complete with enormous branded grill, which means it looks pretty sick, too.
Ford is selling the F-150 Raptor with a starting price of $53,000 on its website, but Business Insider states that a well-optioned Raptor probably clocks in around $80k. And while it’s unclear exactly how many Kanye owns, or how much he spent, we spied at least two in Big Sean’s recent Instagram shot.
