Well after personally driving both an f-150 and a raptor, the raptor wins hands down for the kinds of things it is meant for. However, to say its a glorified F150 is kind of heinous. Its not just a body kit and some interior work, its a total cohesive project that took an f 150 and spoon fed it crack. I could understand if were just a cosmetic package of sorts (aka Harley Edition), but its so much more than that.

the Raptor is not over hyped. Its engineering genius. Practical, no way.

That's one bad ass video, and as for as the hype about the Raptor, it's true, I know a local family that owns a few Ford dealerships here and have owned them for years, Future Ford, Future nissan and many more, I have driven the Raptor again and again, These trucks are a bat out of hell, and they aint no pumped up F 150, Ford dumped a lot of money into these incredible machines and I tell you what makes them unique and nice is not everybody owns one and not everybody can afford one.

never been big on f-150s but i would take one of those in a heart beat, cant say i prefer it over a ranger realistically because for 40 grand i could do a lot to a ranger, but for a factory rig that thing is siiiiick

It really is engineering genius. Atleast Ford looked at their market, like Dodge with the new Power Wagon, and realized it would sell. GM, of course, is 10 years behind as always. They started it all with the original Z71 and rested on their laurels. But I digress..... The Raptor is a technical marvel in the pickup world. Id take one in a heart beat for sure, and the bone head who kept arguing doesnt see past the f150 badging. Therefore I reject his opinion and substitute reality.

OH, and they actually put the time into R&D for a stock, off the assembly line truck to finish the BAJA 1000 on a podium finish in its class with nothing more than a roll cage.

If they made a Ranger raptor - it would be sick! The ecoboost with a little bit more power pushing 35s would be sick.

I would love a Raptor. I would feel bad having one up here. No fun places for it to go out and play. You can't own a truck like that and keep it on the pavement. It craves wide open spaces.
