Default 2017 Ford Raptor

Sure want to trade my 2014 F150 SuperCrew 4x4 in on one of the new Raptors. According to all reports I have read, this is the Raptor to buy, BUT,

DANG are the EXPENSIVE!

Anyone on here bought one yet?

Priced one locally. They started at 20,000 over list and came down to $10,000 over list. That came to right at $80,000 plus TTL. No thanks. Ended up buying a 2017 King Ranch 5.0 v-eight. And it wasn't cheap either. I really like it. Has a lot of new gadgets my 2012 didn't have.

Yep, but with a ton of extras as far as drivetrain, tranny and suspension. They are built basically like a Baja race truck.

One of my guys just bought one and he loves it. He is a contract pipeline pig tracker so he uses it for almost its purpose daily. He is up and down our pipeline row and when we have a tool in the line getting stuck or not being able to make it is not an option. I will say it is one bad mo fo!

I built one on the ford website at 65k and didn't even come close to checking all the options. When it comes to half tons I am typically a Chevy guy but there is no competition for a Raptor.

There is no way I pay over sticker for anything, PERIOD. this is probably a pipe dream, but you can always dream. Wife is retiring in 2 years so I need to reign in some spending. Just spent $16,000 on new windows for our home, but that was a very badly need up-grade.

Quiet a few of the new Raptors driving around Lubbock, but probably from the rich Tech kids Daddy's footing the bills! I saw 2 on my way home from school today!

Nice truck, great suspension, upgraded motor. If you are truly going to use it for off-road the suspension travel and off-road capabilities are tough to beat for the price.

With that being said, I wouldn't buy a 17' Raptor right now. This raptor is no longer an SVT special edition like the previous models, it's an add on just like the FX4 package. Eventually the price will come down and MSRP/ or prices below MSRP will become common place.

Wait for the excitement to die down and DONT PAY OVER MSRP!!

With the redesigned high output EcoBoost and 10 speed transmission, I would consider waiting a year or 2 before pulling the trigger on one. Make sure they get the kinks ironed out, before dropping 60-80 grand. They sure do look awesome though. The grey color they had on display at the rodeo was sweet!

I'm still happy with my '11 Raptor and I don't want to buy the first year of a redesign, so I'll wait until '18 to replace. Maybe they'll drop the $10g markup by then.

I won't do ADM either (additional dealer mark up) & it cost Ford...I went looking for my first sports car & was very intrigued by the GT350R but every dealer wanted $5k+ over sticker...told them I won't pay $0.01 over sticker, but would agree to sticker plus any and all incentives that applied to the mustang line. They rolled their eyes & I walked. This was several months ago & can tell you that they have not moved.

Glad I did as I ended up getting a better vehicle (IMO) at a fair price under sticker on a GM product...if you want a new Ford Raptor, you can get one at sticker but just have to find the right dealer with allocation, who doesn't gouge.

NEVER-NEVER pay over sticker for this type of vehicle...it is not limited production in the sense that they are only making x amount. Dealers are allocated Raptors based on their F150 sales.

My dealer only had 3 allocations for the ZL1 & allowed me to order as I wanted & still honored all incentives available...other dealers around the country were offering the same, while others were adding $5k-$20k over. Don't fall for it.

Seen it listed on f150forum and the fast lane truck like that. There was a build sheet or two on the f150forum that showed how the truck could be spec'd.

For anyone who's looking here's a list of the one's available in Texas.

So after doing a bit more research this is what I found:

" Contrary to what some have said, the Gen 2 Raptor will not be "just another model" such as the Lariat, or Platinum trim. 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.

You can buy a standard f-150, and build your own version of raptor..... and I'm sure save a ton of money, of your warranty probably won't be there though.

I don't mean to defend Ford. But, it's not just a V6, it's a twin turbo V-6 putting out more HP and TQ than the 2014 model with the 6.2L V8. I know, I know, there's not replacement for displacement.

They built as a prerunner truck, not meant to take whoops at 50+ mph or leap 15' in inthe air like the genius did on the YouTube video. I do honestly believe somebody could a more capable truck with the higher end suspension and aftermarket companies. Still very capable trucks though.

Many have tried and for the price can't come close. You need fiberglass fenders front and rear, long travel suspension, longer axels, different motor just to name a few.

Heres a kit ready to go for a mere $22.7k http://www.rogueracing.com/conversio...conversion-kit

I don't own any of that **** and my truck has plenty of scratches, blood, and mud.

What do you drive, wear, and listen to? How many scratches does your truck have? Sure would hate to call you a DB, again.
