2017 Ford Raptor

Anyone else excited for this? Just looking at it raises my testosterone and makes me want to wear a monster energy drink hat.

450HP 510 lb-ft of torque.
$85,000 full option though and dealers here are price gouging like no tomorrow

when u start using aluminum, rivets, and adhesives to build trucks. u know that thing is built weak.

looks good, but cheap underneath with cost saving production methods. cut corners but consumers wont know a difference.

turning almost into like a honda ridgeline, all about novelty and looks, but no real hard contents.

Just like how BOVs should have no place on a civilian soccer mom's crossover.

The lack of a V8 is kinda dumb. Looks super badass but sounds like a Honda when you stomp on it.

I hear the speakers make a faux V8 sound in the cabin on the new F150s, lol.

i wouldn't be surprised to see the raptor f150 Shelby at dealers,the normal 2015 f150 got this treatment and there only a hand full that sold here,i say Five....one blue,one red,one murdered out black,White,Silver.

They looked damn nice,i don't know where they went in Vancity cause i never saw one driving around yet,And the price tag was massive: 100 grand.

I had one, they're fun but all but useless up here. Would've rather had a diesel.
