If the Raptor came with a 10MPG V8 instead, I would be driving a Rubicon EcoDiesel. I can convince myself that a Raptor is practical given that we four wheel a couple times a month, camp in remote locations, haul stuff to work on my house and do a good amount of highway driving to my house in the mountains, with two dogs in the backseat and a bed full of gear. My Raptor’s average fuel economy over the life of the truck (as measured by anal recording of every fill up) has been 17.5MPG. I spend $360/month on fuel. If I got the MPG’s of a TRX, I would have a bigger monthly fuel bill than my monthly Raptor payment. I know most don’t care about fuel economy but it’s important to me. Having said that, I’m sure most TRX’s won’t be daily drivers so it won’t be as significant of a cost.
