    Way better. I saw the stats of a Shelby F150 SC that couldn't even break into the 5s in the 0-60. Spooled turbos are gonna blow them away every time.

    The low mileage was from being in Baja mode during the testing. This spools the turbos to 20,000 rpm. Anytime you hit those turbos the mileage is going to get killed. I'm on my 3rd ecoboost so believe me I've learned. I had the first 2.0 L Ecoboost that was lightening fast but mileage was terrible because I drove it like I was on a race track most of the time. Was rated at 25mpg and I was lucky to get 16 mpg. Highway it was around 30 mpg though. Better than the 3.5 L either way. I'd say in the backcountry this new 3.5 L will be lucky to break the 13s in mpg.

    That is seriously quick, and the suspension/frame performance sounds like a large step forward.

    Thanks for posting the link!

    I was referring more to mileage capability and not that Raptor buyers didn't want to pay to feed it.

    Was more referring that if you drive it like a race truck it's going to eat fuel like a race truck.

    I'm a bit surprised how bad the braking is. 200 ++ feet?? 2 piston front calipers ?? Pretty low tech brakes

    "Fortunately, the crew cab’s tank holds 36 gallons of fuel versus the SuperCab’s 26."

    I thought the gen2's Supercab tank was 23g. Typo or did something change?

    I see on the Ford site it is 26g. When did that change? Wasn't it originally supposed to be smaller at 23g???

    Everything is gonna drink if you keep your foot in it. DD on interstate I expect to get the advertised 18MPG.
