    Ranger and Colorado/Canyon are infinitely better products than the antiquated taco, which still uses drum brakes and is a rust bucket. You really have no idea what you are talking about.

    Thanks for confirming what everyone already knew; you're a sasquatch.

    That is correct. Gen 3 will come with an 3.5L Ecoboost (not Powerboost).

    Strange -- I just googled Hellcat engine failures and a lot came up. "My hellcat had 18xx miles on it when the engine blew. Dodge won't replace it with an equivalent engine..." Here's another one -- "Supercharger bearing failure at 17xx miles!"

    You haven't heard much because Hellcat engines are like unicorns.

    Chrysler made a poor choice and chose IHI - a Japanese company - to supply the Superchargers for the 6.2/Hellcat engines. They've had significant issues with bearings failing with low mileage. Eaton is the industry standard; I'm guessing they were trying to save cost. The GT500, along with all previous S/C Ford engines, have used Eaton. Same with GM. This scenario is similar to when Ford contracted Yazaki (again, Japanese) to supply the BJBs on 2010-2014 F-150s which experienced the fuse melting issue. Don't get me started on Takata, which was majority owned/controlled by Honda and used unstable ammonium nitrate - despite warning from other manufacturers including AutoLiv - to increase global profits, including those from American companies and subsequent consumers. Companies like that have zero ethics, and claim immunity/bankruptcy when the shit hits the fan.

    I now see why you're immune to logic or reason, you're emotionally invested because you sold a vehicle that immediately jumped in value. That must sting. Go buy your TRX. It will plunge in value in a year or two, making you even more invested in justifying your dumb decisions. This could lead to a place where your head implodes. We can hope, anyway. :)

    LOL I had just finished reading about three pages of his yapping. It was annoying. Raptroller doesn't own a Raptor, doesn't own a TRX, and contributes nothing other than noise, probably from his Mom's basement. I'm off now to figure out how to ignore him.
