Anyone have a Raptor?

Recommended Posts

With our hopefully still pending move out of the valley my wife is considering letting her car go for a raptor. I don't like the new body styles but have never driven one. I really like the stance on the first gens. 

Anyone have one of either the new or older ones? Complaints, issues, etc?

Thanks.

You have to be 60+ to own one and never take it off road. Seems that way at least.

I thought the OP was very fitting, seems I mostly see women driving them.

Driven many many many miles off road in a Raptor.... they live up to the hype.

Suck gas, and aren't what I would call "fast" but they are awesome off road.

If she's not locked into the Raptor, the TRX is sweeeet! Expensive but nice.

Wife wants a TRX. I saw the price tag and just laughed.

Might need to go on a test drive. She doesn't need fast, but wants quick acceleration.

TRX is nice, but she can't have a nicer truck then me. And I don't have 120k to dump in a truck.

Sorry! It’s compulsive. Good luck with search. Happy to see you getting out of the valley

Get one with an ecoboost.  3.5L ecoboost is fast becoming the best gas motor Ford ever built.  Mine goes like scalded cat.

$120k for a TRX, why, is this the new FJ.

FJ's were fun, but not close to worth $120. I've had two of em. TRX is the new rebel 1500 with a hellcat engine.
