Going around a track at breakneck speeds is exhilarating, but I much prefer leaving the asphalt behind and hitting the trail, which is why my dream garage is filled with vehicles like Land Cruisers, Broncos, Jeeps, Rams and even a lifted Subaru or two. Not to mention the two vehicles pictured above, the Ford F-150 Raptor and the Land Rover Defender. If either of these are in your dream garage, you’re in luck, because Omaze just happens to be giving away both, right now. All you have to do is enter here for the Raptor and here for the Defender.

Exterior Looks - Winner: Himalaya Land Rover Defender

There’s just something about the Defender. It’s rugged, yet handsome. It’s got classic appeal yet feels modern. It also has style while appearing to be as strong as a tank. The F-150 Raptor in comparison, is still a good looking truck, but it doesn’t look as if it would win a fight with a brick wall and come out unscathed. Obviously this is a subjective category but for me the win goes to the Land Rover.

Interior Styling - Winner: Tie

Both of these interiors are fantastic, so I had a tougher time deciding this one. I polled some of the staff and the final score came out split down the middle. The interiors themselves are quite different. Both trucks have large screens, but that’s where the similarities end. If you’re all for form and don’t care about function as much, my guess is that the Defender will win out for you. If you like modern conveniences like lay-flat seats and the interior work surface, then the Raptor is for you.
