Ford Raptor Pickups Were our Companions
in the second episode of the new season of our program; Exploration Journey, we will explore Yanbu with you today our dear ArabGT’s followers, one of the provinces of the Medina region on the Red Sea coast, accompanied by 2019 Ford Raptor pickups .
As you may recall, we discovered the Red Sea Bride of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia last week, accompanied by the beasts Ford F-150 Raptors, to announce the return of the second season Exploration Journey program. Today we will present a new episode that reveals another area discovered by our colleagues, Mousub Shashaa and Karim Deeb in Saudi Arabia.
We went from Jeddah to Yanbu to discover more places in Saudi Arabia accompanied by 2019 Raptor pickups, which are powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter Ecoboost V-shaped engine that generates 421 hp and 678 Nm, connected to an automatic 10-speed gearbox.
We chose Yanbu specifically because it will be the second destination on the map of Saudi Dakar Rally early next year, God willing.
We started shooting in the old “sea city” of Yanbu, where the port welcomes pilgrims coming from Sudan and Egypt to relieve the pressure on the port of Jeddah during the pilgrimage season. The port also serves two important companies: SABIC and Saudi Aramco.
The trip included testing the suspension systems in 2019 Raptor pickups while speeding on the sands of the seashore, where the vehicle’s amazing performance was shocking! Especially that we didn’t use any of the off-road driving modes. We spent some time testing the vehicles before the pickups were washed with sea water, Kareem Deeb style!
During our adventure in Yanbu we were accompanied by our brother Abdulhadi Al-Essa who works at SABIC. He explained the extraction process of petrochemicals and how their products are used in our daily life.
Our adventure continues to show you more places we have discovered in Saudi Arabia. Watch the video and stay tuned for more!
