There's going to be many Raptor owners very dissapointed the new model lacks a V8. Trust me, here in truck country not everyone is sold on the ecoboost, these guys love their V8 pick em up's.

Other that that, it looks awesome! I wish GM would build something like this.

I heard they are down at the local vinyl graphic shop getting some new ZR2 stickers made up for the NAIAS Colorado as we speak. :)

Seriously this is good news for the Raptor, more HP, lighter weight and should have a little better F/R weight balance too.

It's being considered. They're still talking about what color graphic and step bar they're going to slap on a Colorado LT.
And if its going to have a; black, chrome or body-color grille, I know, I know...................

Not sure how Ford managed to do boxy and round in all the same vehicle.

It still looks good though.


If only the guys over at GM were successful in designing square wheels for the wheel-wells of the Silverado..............
