It'll be akin to when the old Patrols were temporarily discontinued as the new Patrols came out, and their prices went through the roof!!!



Not that I'm planning on selling my Raptor, but just saying. Maybe then Ford may think of giving us folks in Dubai a V8 option in our Raptors (even if you guys don't get it)!

FYI this was in July of 2016

Only time will tell regarding how these trucks will cope

If, and that's a big if, eventually a V8 comes out the natural reaction would be to get a Raptor with the new V8

The same will be if another version of the V6 ecoboost is released

We don't stop for the heat here in Dubai, just pay attention to trans temperature and tire temps. 51 Celsius (123F) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3SfI0Bh82s

Ah, the old Al Awir to Fossil rock route. That was the very first desert drive I did back in '06.

Wait, what?? GCC Specs only get 421 HP and 500 lb ft of torque?? Wow, talk about a ripoff at $85,000+.

You sure? Another website quotes the same. And it's a month older. Unless Wheels got it's numbers from them?

Seems odd, yet entirely possible for Ford to tune the engine differently for the GCC. Anyone from Ford that can confirm?

Never trust stats shared by ME based automotive websites/magazines

They are usually wrong when stating power figures
