So I just came across this vid and it is not a real comparison, just something to keep us all entertained until real vids of the Gen 3 come out. I wish they would announce the hp/tq specs of the Gen 3 though!!!

I think that was the first vid I've seen where you hear the new exhaust from inside the cab. Why they put audio over it half the time, I have no idea.

If Ford doesn’t increase HP/TQ to at least 475+ people will switch to Ram. I’ve seen all the videos on the comparisons of the TRX versus the raptor and it’s close, except in a drag race, so Ram caught Ford by surprise! I’m so glad there’s competition now!!! Plus it tells me that all those tuners out there adding horsepower to the GEN 2 it’s unreliable! Why else would Ford be dragging their feet on releasing the specs?,they’re scrambling to compete!! One of the many things I like about Ram is their heated and ventilated seats front and back, 19 speaker stereo system ect, ect, their interior is much better. Come on Ford I could be a 4 time Raptor owner unless you blow it on the GEN 3 . Tic tock

Unfortunately the only thing anyone shows with a TRX is the “drag race.” Would love to see people actually take it off-road. No one seems to want to do that.

I started getting bounced around on my place in line for the Raptor by the local dealer. Another dealer came out with a TRX same day, went, test drove it, and walked out with it at MSRP. Absolutely love the truck. Well see if Ford can swing me back to the Raptor whenever it makes it out, but it might be hard to give up the big motor.

I did the same thing today getting tired of waiting on Raptor. Dealer has one coming will sell for MSRP, bit the bullet and went with the TRX.

Let's get this straight, you have 1 post, join less than 2 weeks ago, got tired of waiting on a Raptor, which isn't due out until summer? Man you must have some patience.

I literally just placed my order in for white TRX at MSRP locally after driving one of their silver one.

Right now the way it looks to me the dealers are kicking their existing loyal customers to the curb over the amount of money they hope to make on the new raptors which turns me OFF. Since RAM is dealing, it’s a big game changer ! If Ford doesn’t start treating their existing loyal customers with respect they’re going to take a big hit.

I love my Fords which is why I am here. But Ford keeps dropping the ball and some of us have a need for a truck. Right now, this TRX is well ahead of Raptor and it's on the market.
