Ford truck stars in documentary film

Trailer for the upcoming film called "Born in Baja."

The 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor will be making its Hollywood debut on June 23 when a new feature film about the off-road performance truck.

"Raptor--Born in Baja," will premiere at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, Calif., before an audience of more than 500 automotive and off-road motorsports executives, entertainment industry notables and members of the press.

The documentary follows Ford designers, engineers, and race program directors, along with Foutz Motorsports and other aftermarket organizations, as they construct, test, and unveil the new F-150 SVT Raptor to the automotive world by entering it in the grueling 631-mile Baja 1000 race, one of the toughest point-to-point off-road races in the world.

The all-new Raptor was built to take on desert adventures as well as the daily commute. The vehicle will be available in showrooms in July and will retail for $38,995.

Following the June 23 premiere of "Raptor--Born in Baja," a one-hour television version of the film will air on Speed on Sunday, July 12, at 4 p.m. EST with several additional airings to be determined at a later date.
