Raptor

My current truck is 5 years old, and I am starting to get the itch for a new one. Was thinking about a Ford Raptor. Way more truck than I will ever use...but what the hell. Anyone have one or can share the bad's about this truck?

If the Raptor is too much truck, just get the F150 Platinum. At least it's available with a V8.

My neighbor has one and loves it, but he goes to his place in the desert most weekends. It's noisier and rougher on the roads than a standard F150, so if you are only offroad a few times a year, probably not worth it. They do seem to hold their value better.

Avoid the EcoTurd. Get something with at least a V-8.

I just picked up a Sierra Denali and love it. My first pick up and have no idea why I did not buy one sooner. It's awesome.

Cummins is the only way to go! Great for hauling and easy to tune. Mine is an 07 so before def and fully deleted tons of power crazy fast and still get 20mpgs when not towing. Raptors are sweet and fast but not really a work truck.

Thanks. With the 6.2L it's a 420HP beast that can haul the RZR's and quads or snowmobiles in the winter easily. ...Let alone all the sports gear from the teens.

love my new dually except when parking in a city. power like no other, doesn't even feel a fully loaded trailer and a bed full of gear. I'll never go back to a half ton.

but, if you don't tow a lot, or often, I've heard great things about the raptor. I wish they would make a lightning again, or a Harley version that's basically a crew cab lightning like they have in the past.

I do hate the ecoturds though.

I had a 14' Raptor with the 6.2L V8 (411 HP) and now have a 17' Raptor with the Ecoboost (450 HP). I think the 17' is an all around better truck. I haven't had any issues with it.

Why in God's name do people put the apostrophe AFTER the model year?


it's a '17, not 17'.
