Anyone bought one yet? I've been debating getting rid of my diesel 6.7L since we have a one ton that is used for abusive pulling. If I get one definitely going to have to wait for some serious discount incentives later in the year.

They rarely reduce them with incentives.

Wait til 2019 when they put the highly rumored 7.0 L V8 in it. Unless you like the EcoBoost 6 cylinder they have in them now, then no need to wait. I have never seen deasl on a raptor, no matter the year model. They sell themselves and are highly sought after.

Are they seriously thinking about a 7 liter v8? I cant realistically see that happening.

Not sure if it will be a 7.0L, but all indications are that they will have an 8 cylinder option. Should start seeing it at auto shows in the next few months if it is going to happen. The Raptor Ranger looks pretty slick also for a small size truck.

By no means saying its impossible Gm made an 8.1 and ford and dodge have both made 7+ liter gas v8's in the past. I bet they go back to the 6.2 or some variant.

Those are historically terrible engines, both Ford and Dodge, they are too big for the low amount of power and terrible fuel mileage.

I would rather a V-8. I've never been a fan of a V-6 but there getting some serious power of a 3.5L. There's no replacement for displacement. I liked the old 6.2L option 7.0L would be better and then throw a supercharger on it.

Dodge yes, junk


Fords was very very reliable. Big Orn had well over 200k I think on his.

Now out put wise yes lower end of the gasser for size, but still no dog.

And you need to step out of the 1990ís. There is a replacement for displacement, itís called forced induction. The turbo V-6ís of today are making way more power than the V-8ís form 10 years ago.

Didn't buy nothing yet BOBO, and not sure how one would pay over sticker price. I'm more worried about getting screwed on my truck when I sale it. I work international and don't drive it much, its a 2012 F-250 lariat FX4, DPF deleted, EGR deleted, air bags and air compressor, 65 gallon aux/transfer tank, and B&W hide away. I have less than 45,000 miles on it.
