Wife wants a Raptor...

Recommended Posts

A Ford F150 Raptor...

Went to a nearby dealership today... It’s a monster truck...

I may have to suggest a little more civilized Honda Ridgeline or similar...

She tells me many of her classmates drive those pickup trucks...

Would you guys buy a truck for yours?

Will see... haha :D

In Vancouver many of my friend's wives drive pick ups or suvs. However a Raptor is more of a race vehicle than it is a pick up .

 

I mean, who needs 450 hp ?? Thats just crazy .

I see that big F O R D in the front of that vehicle.  Now I know what F.O. stands for.  Does R.D. stand for Rodrigo Duterte? :P

Make the little lady happy... buy it for her, if she can handle it. My wife knows "what Baby wants, Baby gets".

Just out of curiosity - does your car have 450 hp ??  :D

Driving a high performance Mercedes around a track in Germany under very controlled conditions is not the same as taking the hottest fastest retail pick up on the market around the city with lots of idiots driving out there. 

It is however a mighty fine truck . It would sure make those trips to the mall a lot more exciting !! hehehe

If I had a car, it would be a 450 hp. My wife does not have a car, either.

Do you need a truck?... don't get me wrong... I have owned Ford trucks all my life and that is sweet... it defiantly creates a stirring in my trousers.. but is it practical?

Like I said... it is sweet... if you are going to drive it in the PI get one of those big chrome cow catcher wrap around brush guards on the front end...

Impressive ground clearance for the Manila floods. V6? 3 hours in traffic daily? Must be costly

Probably the biggest, baddest truck ever built. Most people will never drive it to it's full capabilities. Second generation Raptor has several driving modes you can employ. Twin turbo takes premium fuel, 18 MPG. Not a truck for a woman IMHO.

Technically that isn't a pickup because of the short bed.
