FORD Ranger Raptor Worth 1.7M?

Recommended Posts

Just got back from looking at the new Ford Raptor

I must admit it looks very pretty BUT...

After looking at reviews it is said to be very underpowered.

Nearly as thirsty as the old 3.2 but much heavier

That said the suspension is obviously awesome which it should be.

Off road is where this lives but highway use with 3 people and luggage reviews say it hasn't got the punch .

Interior materials don't quite match the price tag .

Less than 700kg payload

My question is it really worth the 1.7m ?

I am sure it would be great fun off road but how many are going to see dirt?

The Ford Raptor in Thailand is just simply for the those Thai morons who think that a Ford Ranger is anything like the F150 produced in the US.  The Raptor in the US is a real pick-up with sufficient grunt and technology to lead the field currently.  The Raptor in Thailand is nothing short of absolute bulls***t ,  marketed for numb nut Thais who have zero understanding of the real model and no doubt have a next to zero understanding of the driving ability  required  in any event. Thank God the real Raptor is not available to moronic Thai males.

Agree totally 

But on every vehicle here

I sit in my new model (not a Ford ) & think this has nothing compared to one in a Falang country & costs more

In the one I have now it hasn't got a Console, where I see the same model in different countries do

For that sort of money I would definitely buy the Merc with the proven V6 engine.

260hp to play with and a 0-60mph in 7+ seconds is very impressive...:stoner:

Much better choice but probably 2m+

Will Thailand release it here in the next couple of years?

If I had the cash I would be knocking at the Merc dealer door....The V6 engine is a gem, and the other Merc stuff involved plus constant 4WD is a wow for me...:stoner:
