Hmmm so really no difference from our suburban! My next F-150 needs to be a little different and not the same as everyone else’s, I’ve been looking at the limited but being a speed junkie maybe I’ll look at the raptor.

Be patient rumor is the new raptors are getting a 6.8 , a de- stroked  7.3 Godzilla engine .

Heading to WV tomorrow to pick up the successor to the original sissy truck.  Different color, Gen 2 and lots more HP and Torque.   Should be fun.  But don’t worry, the Barbie Jeep is staying despite

Slightly cleaner pic.  

Sitting in my garage.  Lol.  I just texted the seller that this is a whole different animal than my first raptor.  It truly feels like a race truck.  It just wants to go.  And it’s really nicely appoi

2021 will have the raptor r.   Around 700 horses from factory.  Should run about the same as this one but with a factory tune.  Still a ways off from production though.

My last raptor was black.  It always looked clean for at least 10 min after it was washed.    The owner had it 5 yr ceramic coated.  Supposed to help with maintenance but I hope the blue is easier than black.  Black does look good for that short time however. 

I will admit that shiny black trucks look the best when clean, but keeping them that way takes a lot of time.    I like minimizing contrasting colors, and maximizing my "free" time (meaning less time washing the truck).   The silver allows just two colors, with the black tires.   I always wanted a "stealth", all flat-black SUV (preferably a Chevy Blazer), painted to match the tires.  A buddy from work mentioned giving me his wife's old dark maroon Dodge Durango, which is struggling with NY state inspection lately, to use as a field vehicle.   If he comes thru with it, I will paint it all flat black.   I gave him my old Chevy Tracker field vehicle, which was white and I had painted snow camo, a few years ago after the transmission shift cable busted.

Yep supercharged 5.2 basically same as in the mustang gt 500 . 2022 mustangs should be getting the 6.8 so the raptor usually comes after . Guy’s are making tremendous hp from the 7.3’s

When will it end.   Lol.   If you like fast vehicles, we are living in a good time.  Electric will end up surpassing it all in time.

Shiny trucks are an embarrassment, pavement princesses ,its like when I see a clean shiny fire helmet , tells me all I need to know .

WHERE IS THE FOLLOW UP TO THIS STORY??????

Sitting in my garage.  Lol.  I just texted the seller that this is a whole different animal than my first raptor.  It truly feels like a race truck.  It just wants to go.  And it’s really nicely appointed inside.  No regrets.

Are the raptors all 6 banger turbos now? 

At least until 2022.  Big reveal tomorrow on new power train.   Heard likely a 6 tt hybrid and possibly a supercharged 8 in the raptor r.

Gen 3 announced.   37s are a factory option (doesn't interest me).   Coils rather than leaf springs in rear (good for the serious off-roader - not me except when I jump Treeguys truck).  Optional generator in truck - good for those that camp or use for work - not me).   Staying with twin turbo 6 until raptor R is released in 2022 with a v8 but no details - presumably it will be supercharged and have a few more ponies than the trx.   Nothing so far that makes me wish I waited 2 years.  The tuned gen 2 is more than enough for me.  One drag race on youtube showed it neck and neck with trx and it costs significantly less.
