I feel like you probably messed with your car. The Hennessy Velociraptor is probably more in the same vein. Put low profiles and new stifff shocks on a raptor and I think the results would be impressive.
You seemed more concerned about danger to the public on the streets. Doing stupid shit off road is a different issue.
You will, and this will hurt, just have to grow senses of humor and proportion.
You owning two and not having issues is also an anecdote and not data. FCA especially is still well below average in overall reliability.
Well, the Hellcat is a 6.2 liter supercharged V8, so start there.
They made the GT Ecoboost to be able to race it, they didn’t have a choice. They’re super committed to V8s with the mustang, so a special edition supercharged V8 Raptor isn’t out of character.
These will cost near $80k and will be low volume. I don't think there will be a later population of people owning these and joyriding.
Wait 2 years for the next gen.
You just wrote 5 paragraphs on SUVs versus crossovers and are wondering why other people are so worked up about the difference.
Because the author made the distinction. You can argue that it doesn’t matter, but you don’t get to pretend he didn’t.
I think he’s referring to the fact Raptors are lifted stock over standard F-150s.
It’s only slower than the Golf R, Focus RS, and Civic Type R, and the last only barely.
Well, he specifically explained the AWD system, the FWD version has none of that, by definition.
The Borrego was an SUV designed to compete with SUVs. The Telluride is a crossover designed to compete with crossovers and SUVs.
Yes... The XJ has a full ladder frame integrated into the unibody, so if anything bridges the gap, it does.
You have the money and want the extra horsepower?
Bringing up the dealership experience is not a good route to take when discussing Kias.
Yeah, but the companies are getting better at making these things without having them catastrophically fail either. It’s a mixed bag.
We’re talking about reputation.
They bought Saab’s corpse and did nothing with it. They don’t get credit. They didn’t really even try.
