What's the MSRP on it? Let me guess.........way more than any truck should cost!!
Link Posted: 1/12/2015 12:59:34 PM EST
Looks to be around $50K.

The Ecoboost certainly is neat addition to Ford, for certain applications. How about the 6 different driving modes, are they more hype then innovation? How does this compare to the competition trucks?

I actually prefer a smaller turbo engine to a larger NA one.

How much do you think a factory warrantied that has equivalent capabilities cost?
Link Posted: 1/12/2015 7:05:37 PM EST
I'm sure I can get used to the looks aside from maybe the gross tailgate, but I'm more than happy to stick with the one I already have.

Thing feels wrong without the big V8, and 10 speed trans?? I can feel the perpetual shift machine already, constantly changing it's mind about which gear it wants.

You say that like it's a bad thing?

How do you think they can have it geared from rock crawling to desert bombing?

I have no complaints about my 6 speed from thousands of miles of doing both those things. I think the constant swings in rpms any time you got on or off the throttle would get annoying quick.

Damn right 'Murica lol I dunno a turbo v6 in a truck just doesn't seem American to me. When I think of ford I think of 289 hipo or 428scj or the like, fast loud and kinda in your face. Leave the turbo v6s for gtrs and supras. Just my opinion. And I didn't mean to quote MadProffessor I did that by accident lol damn phones so small I hit quote not reply and didn't notice it lol

Shit looks worn out already. You wore the black off the tires and the white is showing through. Need anymore excuses to get a new one? Just last night my son showed my the video of the dumbass doing something like a 70' jump in a stock Raptor. Deployed all the airbags on landing. No telling what else broke that day.

This looks better than 1st gen Raptors, I think.

I question how well 10spd auto will do in whoops, though. It'll be upshifting like a bitch every time you catch air.

If I was a thinking man, I would suspect that's why it has 6 different programs.

Bet the price tag in north of 70k. It will be awesome if they can make one that doesn't get in the single digits for gas mileage.

Folks who spend $70k on a street-legal prerunner probably don't care about mileage a whole lot.
Link Posted: 1/14/2015 8:37:23 PM EST
I have a 2012 6.2L Raptor; since new I've averaged 13.7 MPG. That includes a fair amount of light towing and a lot of dirt road miles. On the highway, I usually get around 15 MPG. I'd imagine the V6 Ecobeast version will flirt with 17-18 MPG on the highway with a sensible foot. That's about what a very lightly modded 4.0L Tacoma gets, so in those terms the Raptor isn't that bad on fuel.

I paid around $44k for my Raptor in late 2011; I'd image that I won't be able to comfortably afford the next generation Raptor. Ironically, I think I'm going to buy a 3rd generation Tacoma instead.

Shit, the 5.0 is already 435 HP. EcoBoost that bitch and you're looking at an easy 600+ HP. Ford should do this just because.

They're all over in Texas and that's the only gripe I hear about them. Someone on here lived in Houston and had one, then sold it because the fuel costs of using it as a commuter were too high. Another guy I shot 3 gun with loved the truck, and sold it for a regular F-150 because the fuel bill was getting old.

Just because someone buys a Raptor doesn't mean they enjoy 12-14 MPG when gas costs almost 4 bucks a gallon. It may not right now, but it will go back up.

The sticker on the Raptor says 11 / 14. If someone buys a Raptor as a commuter vehicle and not as an off-road toy, then they shouldn't be surprised that they chose poorly.

Even with the Ecoboost, it's going to get terrible mileage. Can't overcome 35" tires and high ground clearance. My 4runner (rated 21mpg, stock) gets 13.5 highway with lift, big tires, armor, etc.

Yup, the power will be nice, but there will be nothing ECO about it. Shit, I have a FX4 with the 6.2L and used to have the identical truck with the EB ( both 3.73 gears ) and the MPG difference isn't all that great. When towing 5K lbs, the 6.2L has actually gotten me a little better MPG.

It will act just like any other auto trans. In the six speed, as well as the new 10 speed the trans will never use all available gears in sequential order.
