Ford F-150 Raptor is a name in itself. After so many years, I finally bought it and it has left me speechless. It can tow, go off road, show off, freight and what not. Despite being like a truck, it drives like a small car (smooth) and I mean it in a literal way. Albeit not good with the fuel economy but who cares when you have a Raptor to drive.

The driving is good and off-road capabilities are excellent no doubt. The throttle response is not the best as there is little turbo lag and you have to wait for two or three seconds to get going. The paddle shifter availability is a huge plus.
