There’s no replacement for the feeling of being behind the wheel of a fast car. The roar of the engine as it starts up. The feeling as you hug every curve on the road. The get up and go when you hit the gas. We wanted to pay tribute to the speed demons. So, we put together a list of the top 10 most powerful and fastest vehicles in the Baxter lineup.
10. 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor
Number 10 on the list is the Ford F-150 Raptor coming in with 450 horsepower. The all-new Raptor is about 500 lbs. lighter than the previous model year which helps that 450 hp feel stronger. The Raptor is a truck built for off roading and has the power and capability to be the best-performing Raptor.
9. Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT®
Number 9 is the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT®. This SUV comes with the SRT® 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 Engine offering up 475 horsepower.
