And you thought your truck was ready for winter.

Ken Block has unveiled his new Ford F-150 RaptorTRAX, a modified SVT Raptor SuperCab billed as the world’s fastest snowcat and ultimate backcountry snowboard machine.

A joint effort between Block’s Ford Racing team buddies and California’s Special Vehicle Concepts, the pickup features a Whipple supercharged 6.2-liter V8 (typically good for at least 650 hp) and a set of Mattracks rubber tracks.

It’s also been fitted with racks for boards, a roof basket, rear winch, four Recaro bucket seats and an exterior audio system, of course.

The result is reminiscent of the Subaru-based Trax STI Block commissioned back in 2009, and like that ride the RaptorTRAX will be starring in an action-packed video scheduled to be released next winter.
