A V8 2019 Raptor? Are you off your meds again? Nipping at the bottle, are we? -

The Ford GT, all half a million dollars of it is powered by a 6 cylinder with a top speed of almost 220 mph, zero to 60 fast enough to rip half the rubber from the gumball Michelins, and you think they are going backwards to an 8? Nuckin' futz, I tell ya. You ain't getting any younger. May as well wait for the all electric Raptor in 2035. ;-)

I love my ecoboost raptor, but I did love my 5.0 also. This is my first ecoboost product, and I would get another. I'm paying 105.00 a month for insurance, the raptor pushed my insurance up 22 bucks a month.

NO, not off my rocker! And no meds! Maybe a brewsky or two.
I like my NA 385 HP 5.0 and i don't tow lead sleds.
The 5.0 is more than enough power for me.
And with the Raptor's 4.10 axle gearing even better.

Wish Ford offered a more souped up naturally aspirated 5.0 option for the '18 Raptor. Then it woulda been a no brainer for me.
I'm skeptical of small displacement turbo charged engines having a bad experience with one in the past.

I will say this, in the event Ford drops a V-8 in the Raptor, it'll probably be super or turbo charged to compete with the current engine's specs.

We'll see what 2019 brings. Maybe by then all the Raptor hype, long order times and over MSRP price tags will be gone.

Having said all that, still on the fence for ordering a '18.
