Different purpose than prior svt vehicles. I enjoyed the years of the ford lightning's much more which were on-road performance trucks which are even more ludicrous in terms of making sense but I loved it!
That's why a Hennessey tuned Raptor would be the ticket.
I'm losing my 2012 Raptor to the big D but hopefully can buy a Hennessey2013 when they arrive. They're great dd s, except for the gas mileage.
