Never been a fan of the raptor's of either trucks. Stupid waste of space that only dude bro's drive.
This obsession with making everything bigger is stupid...



Anyway, Do like the new front end. Can't wait to see the NA version.

Well the malls around here are getting larger so it's only fitting they make these bigger. ?

But I do agree most don't use these to even half the potential. Dealers will have very limited allocations for them and the Raptor will have such a high ADM most of us wont be able to get our hands on one if we wanted to.

I really like the new body overall. As for the Raptor, the only thing I dont like is the width. Oh and the silly infotainment center. As for the rest of the truck I like it!! My nest Ranger will definitely be the next generation. I just hope the front diff locker is available in non Raptor variants.

Tend to agree with you. A show truck that never gets used for truck things. In the obsession comment you forgot "more powerful ".

I do like the front end better though, but like you said we'll need to wait for the NA version.

I’m becoming a fan of that Raptor - it will likely drop in at about $75k-$80k CAD MSRP and sell at a steep markup. F-150 Raptors are $95+k here, so I’m not sure how far they could go.

I can guarantee it would see its fair share of mud, sand, snow, gravel, and dirt - and that’s just on the way to the cottage. ?

There's still some nice wide open desert here so it would be fun to have a Raptor. If I could get my hands on one I'd sell my Ranger and my Jeep. That should just about cover the deposit. lol?

Sure, it would be great but I’d probably run into you at the end of the off ramp at Litchfield and I-10 panhandling for gas money. ?

That’s okay, I’ll probably be at the Home Depot parking lot on Dysart looking for day work if it gets much higher. ? We could meet for lunch if there’s any surplus.
