Default May be trading 2018 Platinum for 2019 Raptor This Weekend

My first truck I ever owned and drove was my 2017 Raptor. I loved most everything about it. After 10 months I had the itch and scratched it with a Ď18 Panamera which quickly bored me. I then got a 911 which I traded for the 911 I currently have. I knew I needed a truck again just as my DD and so bought the 18 Platinum. Itís a great truck but I long for the Raptor look and mystique.

I found the the seat cushions on my Raptor a bit short. The cushions are longer and more comfy on the Platinum. Thatís one reason I must go sit in a 19 with the Recaros. If I love them, it will probably be a done deal, depending on what trade in I get for my Platinum. The 19 Raptor is offered at sticker. Stay tuned.

I think the Recaro’s are the same length. The dealer has a 19 in stock with Recaro’s? My dealer said they won’t order one with them because they don’t think people will want them. I had to order my 19 to get them. Still waiting patiently. It probably won’t be till March for me.

Yes in an online inventory search I found 2 with Recaros. The seat cushion in my Platinum is a bit longer and better. Hoping the Recaros are.
