Ok fanboy y’all will see what happens when the might TRX comes out to lay the smack down
Everyone will be eating hotdogs around the campfire arguing about who's truck TFLtruck liked better
I hate to say it but most corporate decisions are based solely on economics. I've been to pretty much every SVT, Ford Racing and Ford Performance training event since the mid 90's. Every single one of those events had discussion about how the team (SVT, FR or FP) had to negotiate extensively with the "bean counters" until they finally got an approval to build what the bean counters agreed on and not what the team was trying to build. The only time that scenario was different was when John Colleti scrapped the 2002 cobra build because "it was a dog" and convinced the bean counters to let them build the super charged "Terminator".
Also an interesting tidbit.... up until at least the early 2000's (haven't followed it since then) the Camaro never outsold the Mustang in any of the years the Camaro had more horsepower. Which always gave the bean counters more power to dilute the teams goals.
Bro, we drive Raptors...there will be steaks. You pheasants can throat the hotdogs all you want (I want to put a J/K emoji here, but the closest is the tongue out one...and that seems a little flamboyant given the hotdog talk).
For real though. It annoys the shit out of me that the dude at TFL gave more information (read: any) than Ford did. I guess Ford did give some info. But you had to search high and low for it.
Would be amazing if Ford made a raptor similar to the 2014 mustang cobra jet. A pure purpose built non street legal trophy truck and offer it at say 120k with not so limited allocation so no ADM.
The HP wars ppl want for this segment is idiotic and only shows how naive most are to what this segment is supposed to be about
You aint getting anywhere close to a TT for less than 500k. Ford also did offer the Raptor R (XT) in the first gen that was essentially the exact model that ran the Baja, with no vin. Nobody bought them.
Well 50 were made in total.
How many of those were actually made available to the public and not some friend of a friend at Ford?
Raptor XT 500hp
Back in 2010 someone commented you had to be part of a race team to get one.
I wasn't in the Raptor scene back then so I don't remember the XT well
You know what I saw today? A TRX. You know what I’m not gonna see for years? A 700hp Ford truck.
Im sure a few sold to private race teams who maybe used them as a chase/support truck but I have never seen or heard of one used as a play toy. It's just not the type of truck someone wants. Racers either build 4100 series Rangers/toyotas or trophy trucks really. Now, side by sides are huge. I don't see a market at all for a no vin Raptor built by Ford. The aftermarket is superior anyway
Oh I agree. Just was curious to see how many were actually built too.
Let me guess,........it was black?? lol
Did you like it?
It was black.
It looked ok, I don’t really care for either of them...or any of the new trucks really. It looked bloated from the outside with a narrow track.
Yeah, there's something about it that looks "off" to me.
Maybe it's the tires? I think they need to be a bit taller and wider? I think the gen 3 Raptor looks better.
The TRX looks like it skipped leg day to me, made an extremely aggressive body without the tire/suspension to match.
That sounds 100 times better then the 2nd gen which sounds like a broken down fart.
Much better. Sounds like a gtr now. Which I think sounds unique and pretty good.
That sound in a gen2 wouldn’t have been a deal breaker
