Ford’s F-150 Raptor is getting ready to travel….well sort of. Ford recently announced that the truck will available in China in 2017. F-150 Raptor is unique among off-road performance vehicles, with a purpose-built engine, chassis and suspension – all of which enable it to travel fast over challenging desert landscapes or crawl over rocky terrain, from Baja to the Gobi Desert.
China will get to experience the F-150 Raptor and experience all of the advanced materials – including a fully boxed, high-strength steel frame and high-strength, military-grade aluminum-alloy body – help to improve durability while greatly reducing the weight of Raptor for improved off-road prowess. Combined with all-new EcoBoost engine technology, F-150 Raptor SuperCrew has a power-to-weight ratio that makes it even more agile off-road.
F-150 Raptor is powered by Ford’s new, second-generation high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost that produces more power with greater efficiency than the previous Raptor’s 6.2-liter V8, which was rated at 411 horsepower and 434 lb.-ft. of torque. An F-150 Raptor exclusive, the engine is paired with an all-new 10-speed transmission for improved efficiency.
An all-new four-wheel-drive, torque-on-demand transfer case manages power distribution between front and rear wheels. It combines the best attributes of clutch-driven, on-demand all-wheel drive with durable, mechanical-locking four-wheel drive to send power to the wheels in slippery conditions.
The truck’s pioneering off-road driving mode technology has evolved into an all-new Terrain Management System that enables the driver to select from among six preset modes to optimize driving dynamics to environmental conditions. Driving modes include:
•Normal mode for everyday driving
•Street mode for high performance, on-road driving
•Weather mode for rain, snow or ice
•Mud and sand mode for muddy and sandy trails and terrain
•Baja mode for high-speed desert running
•Rock mode for low-speed rock crawling

Mtn Dew is asking DEW Nation to choose between two legendary flavors – MTN DEW BAJA BLAST or MTN DEW PITCH BLACK.

In a world dominated by iPhone and Samsung, how does a legendary company like Motorola produce a device that stands out from the crowd?
By making the DROID Turbo 2, that’s how.
The DROID Turbo 2 essentially takes every iPhone and Samsung users wish list and puts it to work.
Battery life got you down? Try out this powerhouse 3760mAh for two days of use. The quick charge will give you 13 extra hours in only 15 minutes on the wall.
Tired of getting gouged by Apple for storage space? How about expandable memory, up to 2TB’s with a micro SD card. (Two Terabytes! In a phone!) It’s a good thing too because you’ll be using that 21mp camera to take massive and high quality pictures and videos everywhere you go.
No more bricked phones thanks to a careless spill either, the DROID Turbo 2 is also splash proof, with a water repellant coating that protects the phone inside and out.
All this is great, but what really caught our eye here at MANjr is the claim of the shatter-proof screen.
I mean c’mon. How shatter-proof are we talking? So we put in a request for a DROID of our own and put it through some very serious real world testing.
Turns out the secret to a shatter-proof screen is in the layers. Five layers to be exact, including two functioning touch screens in the rare case that one of the screens is compromised. (Still not sure how that could happen, by the end of the testing we were practically throwing it on the concrete floor.)
End of the day, if the goal is to stand out in a marketplace that is a near duopoly, Motorola hits all the marks. Unlike us in our video review.
Motorola DROID Turbo 2
(exclusively on Verizon)
- $624.00 or $28.80 / month
- 21 mp camera
- Android OS
- Customizable backings and colors
- Shatter-proof screen
- 48 hours of battery life between charges
- Expandable storage using Micro SD
Weed is legal for recreation in four states and Washington DC. Twenty other states have legalized the use of medical marijuana. State ballot initiatives continue to gain support and this upcoming election season could see even more states following the national trend of decriminalization and legalization. People just don’t see prohibition as a smart strategy anymore.
Don’t take my word for it. Here’s what President Obama said about the issue to VICE News last March:
“You’re starting to see not just liberal Democrats, but also some very conservative Republicans recognize [prohibition] doesn’t make sense, including sort of the libertarian wing of the Republican Party,” President Obama said. “They see the money and how costly it is to incarcerate. So, we may actually be able to make some progress on the decriminalization side.”
It’s just not as big as a deal as it used to be. And if you’re someone who supports this, tomorrow is a big day.
But no matter how you choose to spend your 420, you’re gonna need music. And what’s a more appropriate speaker to reach for than the House of Marley Chant Mini portable Bluetooth speaker? In Blue Hemp, no less. It’s tiny, stylish, made from eco-friendly materials and most importantly, these guys make good products. My old Marley earbuds are still my go-to choice for convenient, on the go headphones.
Stay tuned for the full review!
