    Ambient temperature will cross 100F soon and will hover at about 110-115 for the next couple of months and can get up to 130

    Not to mention the humidity which feels like a sauna

    In this part of the world people go off-roading in the winter, that's why it's seasonal

    Raptors make living in the sand box only a little bit better...

    As much as I love the new interior and some of the new tech, I would never give up the 6.2 for this little termite of an engine. Especially not in this heat. I can't wait till people in Dubai realize that the twin turbocharged 3.5 was a big no-no for off-roading out here, and the price of my truck climbs like in the US. It'll be akin to when the old Patrols were temporarily discontinued as the new Patrols came out, and their prices went through the roof!!!

    Not that I'm planning on selling my Raptor, but just saying. Maybe then Ford may think of giving us folks in Dubai a V8 option in our Raptors (even if you guys don't get it)!

    We'll be hitting 110-118 consistently for 4 months I think the raptor will be just fine in the heat. If you live in Dubai you have money so go buy a v8 and drop it in. Problem solved
