    I am not a fan of the revised exhaust either. The commercial they ran with the exhaust sound was definitely enhanced and a bit misleading. This white truck in the wild just doesn't fix the bad tones and frequencies of the 6-cylinders.

    The market for tunable exhaust is not limited to Gen 2 Raptors. What works for the Gen 2 should work for any previous Gen ecoboost F150. And I would expect to see versions that work on the current Gen ecoboosts as well. Really, I would think this would be popular on V8s as well, as being able to get loud exhaust without having to commit to loud exhaust all the time would be a big plus. Having the flexibility of not waking up the neighborhood every morning, but being as loud as possible in the starbucks drive thru...is big I would think you could easily get add an extra $400 or more to the price and it would sell well.

    Lots of room for improvement too, since control is a factor.

    The battery on the powerboost F150 isn't under the hood anyway. It takes up some of the space for the gas tank. Part of the theory why some think the powerboost will never come to the Raptor.

    Did they mention this would be carrying over to the Gen 3 anywhere? I was hoping this would not be a thing for the new generation...

    It's all good bro, I'm going to miss the v8 sounds and so are a lot of people, times are changing, soon people will be crying that they don't like the sound of the electric motor and want to hear the v6 sound. It's all relative.

    I hope Ford is past that by now. Honestly, it sounds better than what the electric motor is going to sound like.

    I have to beg to differ my good man. Outside of other ways to get a hybrid in the Raptor, you can get up to 700 miles of range as Ford advertises for the F-150. So if you can get over 500 now on fuel only, why wouldn’t the hybrid work with the smaller tank? Being it’s total range your looking for. Now does the hybrid fair Better on the highway or slow stop and go or off road driving is the question.

    No hybrid and no v8. Not even like performance screen like in TRX. It’s like eating the same chicken soup every Sunday. It’s just there. Lame

    Hey, it's not my theory. If you can go by the PB on an F-150, the tank size drops to 30.6 gallons, so you basically lose 6 gallons. Then there is the added weight of the battery effecting performance, and whether the boost helps much in off-road conditions. It clearly would be a plus for having power available when you aren't driving.

    Personally, I hope that it's something Ford is looking at doing in the Raptor in the near future. Perhaps Ford wants to have sort of a 'pilot' year to see how customers like it. Or perhaps they think many customers won't care for it and thus don't want it in the currently single engine option Raptor. We'll see.

    I think there will be a high demand for a powerboost raptor, able to run your generator to power the tools to fix your raptor, or keep the beer cold, etc.
