More and more I regret not ordering a 2012 Raptor. I like my lariat 4x4 Ecoboost, but I absolutely loved the Raptor... Every time I see one I kick my self for not paying the extra $$$ and living with the horrible gas milage. To make matters worst, I only seem to be able to manage 15-16mpg with the ecoboost babying the truck. I am nearly certain that I could have got 12-13 mpg out the Raptor with the same driving style...
So far the ecoboost is not really much of a mpg improvement over the Raptor's milage and is a big disappointment.....
Any one else regret not getting the Raptor?
I owned a 2010 6.2L RAPTOR (Supercab) for over a year; it is a great truck but believe me, it's not that great.
Gas mileage was about 10.5 combined; slower than my Ecoboost (yes, even with the 6.2), the seats were uncomfortable "for me", needed to downshift on uphills (not with my ecoboost); a pain to park because its width; I had the premium sound that it's not really premium.
Sold it and got a 2011 Ecoboost Crewcab 4x4 XLT, which was about $10k cheaper, installed 325/60/18 offroad (Falken A/T's) tires on custom wheels, bilstein shocks on all four corners, installed a true premium sound; mileage is about 14.7 combined (that's over 40% improvement over the Raptor), it is more comfortable and really roomy.
I've owned many trucks and this is the best...
Just my opinion from personal experience.
