PARK CITY, UT: To kick off 2019, Hoonigan Racing Division’s Ken Block has teamed up with SVC Offroad on a new Ford F-150 Raptor project for 2019.

The vehicle Block and SVC have started with is a 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor in a striking Avalanche Grey color (a new model launch year exclusive from 2017). Building upon that, the team at SVC updated the exterior with their Gen2 Mojave front bumper with skid plate, their Gen2 Baja Rear Bumper, as well as their Gen2 Bypass Rack in the bed that features built-in storage for two full-size spares. In addition to the SVC exterior upgrades, the team also installed ADV Fiberglass front fenders, which add another 2 inches of width to each side of the truck.

Further exterior enhancements include the addition of Rigid Industries ADAPT LED series light bars (with a 50-inch unit up top and a 30-inch unit integrated into the front bumper), as well as a very slick black reflective Hoonigan all-over repeat pattern livery on the front and rear of the truck.

For off-road performance, the team at SVC outfitted Block’s Raptor with their bolt-on Mid Travel Kit in the front with Fox 3.5 bypass shocks, SVC traction bars in the rear with Deaver Suspension +3 leaf springs and Fox 4.0 5-tube bypass shocks in the rear. Wheels are 17-inch Fifteen52 Turbomac HD fitted with 37-inch Toyo Tires Open Country M/T tires.

In the power department, Block’s new Raptor features an SVC tune, SVC intercooler, SVC intake, SPD turbo adapters and a full Stainless Works exhaust system that dumps beneath the truck. Estimated power figures? 550 hp and 600 lb/ft of torque!

“I’m really excited with how this project turned out,” said Block. “I’ve worked with SVC in the past with my RaptorTRAX project, so they were my number one choice to partner with on a properly sorted, more desert fun-oriented Ford Raptor build. Obviously I wanted a bit more power, but I also wanted something that I knew I could push beyond the factory setup when I’m out ripping around in the desert of southern Utah. I think the team at SVC has delivered on that desire and more, now I just need to get south and open this thing up!

Building upon the award-winning viral video franchise of Gymkhana films, Gymkhana TEN takes viewers on an epic journey to 5 very unique and different locations with 5 very unique and different cars.

The journey starts in Luleå, Sweden, with Block piloting the current 2018 Ford Fiesta WRC on snow and ice—a first-ever for Block in one of his Gymkhana films. After that the action jumps to Detroit, Michigan, with Block in his Ford Mustang RTR Hoonicorn V2, decimating his tires with 1,400 horsepower on the streets of the Motor City. From there viewers are transported to Guanajuato, Mexico, where Block can be seen ripping through the colorful streets and tunnels of a picturesque mountain town in his Ford Focus RS RX rallycross car. After that, things go full-sketch with a jump to Los Angeles, California, with Block driving his beloved Ford Escort Cosworth Group A car on a mixture of both tires and bare metal wheels, sliding dangerously out of control while creating massive sprays of sparks. Finally, viewers are brought to historic Route 66 in Shamrock, Texas, for the world debut of Block’s all-new 1977 Ford F-150 Hoonitruck in action as he absolutely wreaks havoc upon the small Texas town.

“This project has been over 2 years in the making,” said Block. “I’m so excited to finally have it streaming live on Amazon Prime, especially for all of the fans and viewers who have been following along on the process of creating this video through The Gymkhana Files. I think they’ll really enjoy the payoff today by being able to see Gymkhana TEN finally! I’d also like to take a moment to thank all of my partners on this project, it has been a massive undertaking and I couldn’t have done it without Ford, Forza, Toyo Tires, Pennzoil, Monster Energy, Can-Am and of course my team at Hoonigan. Thank you, everyone!”

For the next 10 days, Gymkhana TEN: Ultimate Tire Slaying Tour is streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime Video as the final portion of Block’s The Gymkhana Files documentary show. Starting on December 17th, Gymkhana TEN will then also be available on Hoonigan’s YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/thehoonigans) for those without Amazon Prime.

Block And Gopro Create New Hero 7 Action Clip

Recently, GoPro announced their all-new Hero 7 camera, a massive step up in their product offerings in terms of image quality, as well as image stabilization in-camera. To help kick off that launch, the GoPro team flew out to Ken Block’s home state of Utah to go and document Block doing what he does best when he’s home: having fun with some of his toys. In this case, it was his customized Can-Am Maverick X3 rs turbo and in two different locations. The first one was Sand Hollow State Park, a favorite Utah destination of Block and his family for the variety of outdoor activities they can do there. The other location was Swing Arm City, in Southern Utah. A location Block is intimately familiar with from previous Can-Am trips, as well as the filming of his epic Terrakhana video project, which also utilized the location.
