Are you ready to accept a turbo V6 as the lord and savior of your sandbox, or will you miss the old Ford Raptor’s big honking V8?

I Just Bought A $600 Diesel Manual Chrysler Minivan But It Has 250,000 Miles And Is Broken In Germany
With a Raptor? Its a muscle truck. V8 is a must have. Power isn’t the be all/end all. The noise of a V8 with a proper exhaust screaming is music.
Besides, I would be hesitant to sign on to a truck that is going to get worked, run hard and used being equiped with expensive and overly complex technology, especially since it seems the EcoBoost never lived up to its hype and have seemingly had issues with its magic whizbang gizmos. Now get off my lawn.
