I stated multiple times that I knew precisely what sort of response the mouth breathers would give. Everyone can please stop educating me on the internet and/or worrying about my psyche based on whatever vitriol comes my way. Life experiences have rendered me rather nonplussed by keyboard warriors.

So you did this to troll?? Awesome!

You got an MSRP deal, yet compare inflated Raptor prices and even mention the chip shortage etc. Straight troll.

I consciously don’t slow down and look at car accidents but I just read 13 pages of internet lint. WTH. Dummy.

To quote Billy Madison, we are all now dumber. Let’s start a new thread so we can get @combatninja’s thoughts on the relative value between paying extra for avocado at Chipotle or upsizing his happy meal at McDonalds. Curious minds want his input.

Also, should he finance those charges to maximize long term gains. I bet the G1/2 Raptor guys want to beat the crap out of us Late to the game G3 owners ( and I’m not even officially one yet). Reading this thread start to finish, I deserve the ridicule and shame.

I have to add my 2 cents worth.
It's your value for your money, no one else's.
I've owned Porsches, BMW's etc, but the Raptor is by far the most fun vehicle I have owned, due to it's versatility.
The corvette looks cool on the road but limited (good luck driving it in the snow or heavy rain).
The Raptor looks cool on OR off the road, in any weather.
MHO... ;)

Still not cross-shopping a Raptor and a Z06. Can anyone here read?
Fine your not Cross shopping.. but you still asked the question how can anyone justify the cost of the Raptor compared to the cost of the Z06. That is asking for a comparison between the two vehicles which puts most people into the "which would I rather buy" mentality. You belittled the Raptor as a pumped up F150 (which it is not as explained by several people) yet the Z06 is a pumped up C8 Vette. I mean its a C8 with a rockstar motor and some suspension tweeks... Prove me wrong...

But I digress as you have yet to actually reply to anybody in this discussion when they have spelled out good reasons on why they think the Raptor is as much an Engineering Marvel as this Z06 that you now hold in high regard.

Last thought I don't find the Z06 as a major marvel of engineering, Ford already stuffed a 5.2L flatplane crank motor into a MUSTANG that has an 8200 redline, and 526 N/A hp, that was 5 years ago. So Chevy took a slightly bigger engine got 400 more RPM out of it and was able to jump the HP to 670... If anything its an evolution of what has already been done and its still gonna get smoked by a Tesla Model S 0-60 on any street surface by any idiot driver....
