I bought a Raptor in 2014 and I love the truck but I can't see buying a new one with a **** 6 cylinder in it. The whole idea of the raptor was the big v8. I took all the decals off mine when it was new and painted the fender flares the same color as the truck which is white, much cleaner look I think.

Would absolutely LOVE to have one but I refuse to pay over sticker for any vehicle. Just my personal preference.

It is called Carolina squat. Just about the most idiotic thing you could do to a truck.

Brand? I'm considering buying a Tundra

I believe the Raptor was actually developed for the Border Patrol if memory serves me right. For the money I would definitely rather have the Power Wagon.

Never heard Carolina squat before. Around me they call it cali lean. It's still gayer than aids though.

He probably lost a girlfriend to someone in a nice/lifted/fancy truck before. As she walked away the only thing he could think to say was "he's not even a real cowboy!"

Yes it is a nice truck. And imagine you could leave the freeway. Go through the ditch on to the feeder with a cup of coffee and never spill a drop.

If I go into that dealer and they tell me it is even window sticker and nothing off, I am going to laugh and walk, saying they are going to add to the window sticker is insane.

If you think your going to get this truck with traditional automatic sticker price mark down, don't waste your time or the dealer's time. I understand what you are saying but keep in mind this vehicle will hold it's value better. If I had the $$$$ & could swing it, I would get one. Remember, dealers only get a certain amount they can sell due to allocations. Some low volume dealers are even buying Raptors from other high volume ones & selling them over.

My dealer accepted all available incentives GM had...I got a discount because a friend gave me a GM supplier / employee discount code that was transferable & also another discount because I own another GM product. Hell, I have already gotten two offers to buy over what I paid!!

If you really want this truck, you can find one if you look hard for sticker...my point is sticker in this case is very fair & actually have a truck that you could possible turn / make a profit on. You have too think outside the traditional box on buying these typed of vehicles.

I only know a few Raptor owners, and none of them fit your "profile".

I know one also.He's about to pull the trigger on his second one.He doesn't fit his profile either.

I'm not sure if that rumor was started by some to keep some of the prestige with the current model, but just because it now falls under Ford Performance, and not SVT, doesn't mean it will change the way it's viewed. Ford still has this as an allocated vehicle, but there is no production limit. "

Guess the guys over at F150forum were wrong.

Autonation Katy has a few on their lot, doesn't seem like they're moving like the originals.



They're bad wrong! The truck from the ground up is an entirely different vehicle with similar front and rear ends. It's body is 6" wider for goodness sake.

This is one of the only American vehicles that could actually be an investment if taken care of. Like a vet. It WILL be sought after in 30 years by folks

I spent a lot of money trying to win a 17 Raptor at the Kickapoo Casino in Eagle Pass. Some lady from Laredo drove off in it and let me tell you it was one bad looking truck. I just knew they were going to call my name.

I love mine. Got it in January after trading my 2013 Raptor. I can't say it's worth the money to everyone, but it was for me. The engineering and technology on the 17s is ridiculous. And, yes, I drive it the way it was intended.

Lol, built like a baja truck......me thinks not....
