Or you’ve got tiny PP syndrome. A lot of TRX guys I’ve talked to at meets remind me of “the guy who just bought a boat”:If you're buying a pickup for 0 to 60 time or quarter mile time, you ain't The brightest bulb in the chandelier. And if you write articles on the internet about it, well, your ethics are in question.
TRX isn’t faster than a Raptor - Gen2 Gen3 or R - off-road. That’s what matters first & foremost.
I highly doubt an R is slower on the street when a tune only Gen2 running HEAVY ass aftermarket wheels & 37”s is within spitting distance of a stock TRX through the 1/4 the R will still keep the weight advantage & should have more power than a tuned HO3.5
I’m not posting the link again- go check out TFL’s YouTube channel & you’ll see it w/ your own eyes.
Hope that’s not the case or the people paying the factory markup of what? $20-35k for an R over a standard Raptor….+ ADM!?!? The R BETTER be noticeably quicker in every measure than the TRX b/c if not? Other than what I’m sure will be a sweet exhaust note….R owners will quickly feel well ripped off unless they need a factory V8 Raptor (similar to wrangler 392)But you're referring to 'real world' testing, not the number Ford is going to officially post. I expect Ford to post a faster 0-60 time, but I would not be surprised to see Ford be conservative either. Doesn't really matter. The two are going to be close enough, I expect, that driver, road conditions, etc, will be deciding factor in a real world scenario anyway. Not that anybody is going 0-60 in the starbucks parking lot.
