If there was ever a vehicle more devoid of caring, I haven't heard of it. The Raptor just doesn’t care about you or your friends or your cars. It doesn’t care about the environment. It doesn’t care what your neighbors think. It doesn’t care about curbs. And it doesn’t care what it’s fellow F-150s were meant to do. The Ford F-150 Raptor seems to care only about how cool it is. And honestly, it’s right.

It's a purpose-built off-road pickup and it doesn't make any attempt to be subtle about it.

I was surprised at how comfortable the Raptor was when Tom picked me up in it from the airport, and really quiet on the highway at speed.

On a whim I googled "2017 Ford Raptor 0-60".

Looks like 5.2-6.3 seconds...HOLY E36 M3!!!

I think dodge has cornered the market on building things we don't need but absolutely want to have.

The new Raptor cracks 13.9 in the 1/4 iirc. It's ridiculous.

That's only 1 sec slower than a 2017 Mustang GT.

Insanity.
