Bought a 2018 Raptor about a week ago. Just a quick video about my experiences so far with the truck. I'll update this as I go with more in depth review on exterior and interior features.

      I have a 2018 ford raptor. Is it recommended that it ONLY takes premium gas? Or it doesn’t matter? I’ve called the ford dealer that I bought it from and they said I can use unleaded..... but I find it hard to believe

      😂. Yea, I was confused at first on what to put in and some of these dealers act like they care but really they don't as long as they made there sale there all good. , so I figured I'd ask some legit owners of raptors and get there opinion on it. Did do you any modifications to it yet?

      Just test drove and 18 today. I think I’m going to wait for the 19. Do you have any good uses for the aux. switches? Recommend any websites for filling all those switches? Thanks

      I had a 2012 SRT Cherokee.. exact same.. floored it at lights and on the highway a bit... 4 speeding tickets later it was time to go.. Sounded awesome with the Borla exhaust on it though. Just bought a 2018 Sierra and feel like i'm 110 years old now... Raptor maybe in a few years

      hahaha. 0 tickets for the 4-5 years I had it. loved it though. Mine had lots of weird issues though. Spent a lot of time at the dealership. jeep paid my car payment one month it was so bad. I had a 2010 Sierra before i got the jeep and loved it too. Raptor may get traded in on a plat f150 or something. not sure yet.

      haha. im starting to lean towards possibly getting a 2019 limited since it'll have the same 450 hp tuned engine the raptor does as an option. i dont offroad mine at all so it's kinda going to waste in that respect. its a killer truck though man, i cant even deny that. im just hitting a crossroads of cost to fun ratios not matching. kinda like buying a hyabusa but never taking it to the highway

      Talking about parking...I was surprised to find that the Raptor doesn't Have "active park assist"...great for times when you maybe less than 100% alert, maybe you came from a bar or party and had a few too many, or you're simply uncomfortable perpendicular or parallel parking in tighter than "usual" spaces...why not greatly minimize the chance for a costly mistake? Or, your teen is borrowing the Raptor..etc.

      I wonder if there's an aftermarket "active park assist" add-on available and can be added to a 2018 Raptor...made by another compnay...if you're not afraid of voiding the warranty.

      you should get something in the mail (a few weeks/month after you get the truck if i remember right) with instructions. or you can just go here http://www.raptorassault.com/en/register-now.html and sign up with your VIN etc. I'd pay the $85 for the insurance. All you gotta do is get yourself there and pay for a hotel room.

      Hello there Mr. how much did you pay for it and how much was it out the door? I want one so bad I test drove one the other day but the dealer placed a $10,000 mark up. I wasn’t willing to pay it. Do you know if I can order a stock bare minimum base model Raptor direct through ford to avoid the Markups here in California? btw great video.

      Victoria M In reply to Victoria M

      Big Guy Bigger Truck thank you for the prompt response. You are correct I found one in Kansas msrp no markups but not the color I want, it’s lightning blue. My search continues and the chance of me buying a raptor is on its way to becoming a reality thanks to your advice.

    • Big Guy Bigger Truck
      Big Guy Bigger Truck In reply to Victoria M

      the truck it self was right at 70k, maybe 70,300 before tax/trade in. No markup. I dont think its even legal to buy directly from the manufacturer without going through a dealership so you'll have to deal with them. As far as markup's and how to avoid them I'd suggest looking out of state. If you look around the midwest especially you can probably find a dealer selling them at Sticker. My sales guy here in memphis said that if anyone came to him at my recommendation he could probably get the 5k markup they have removed. Consider buying out of state and paying the 500-1000 $ to have it trucked in from wherever. it'll be worth it. Mike Bass Ford in Ohio has about 9 of them currently and it looks like theyre at sticker.

      They're out there, you just have to hunt for them and call people. Honestly, go drive one and figure out what options you want, find one out of state, call the dealer, pay to have it trucked in and enjoy. That's what I'd do.

      Hey I’m new to trucks and just got myself an 2018 f150 lariat v8. I wish I just paid up for the raptor but just couldn’t afford it. I know I can’t ever make it the same but what mods would you recommend for v8 lariat?

      Big Guy Bigger Truck In reply to Christopher J. Roura

      Hey thx for watching. Hm, if I had a v8 i'd probably say cold air intake + tune. Potentially exhaust swap to something like borla atak's. dunno how close you are with your dealership but you may want to talk to them about mods and warranty. also may want to look at forscan to see if you want to make any changes to your trucks settings.

      Big Guy Bigger Truck In reply to Vinny Gombatz

      Depends on what you want. If you want a full size truck, Raptor. If you want a midsize truck, Ranger. Raptors gas, Ranger Raptor is diesel. Stats are way different. Raptor Ranger is going to start high 30s at least probably. Raptor starts at around 55k. They're completely different trucks so it really depends on what you want out of it.
