Anyone want to talk me off the cliff of going to the 2019 Raptor truck?

Worse fuel economy, over priced suspension, almost same width as superduty with not near the rating.

There was an article probably by Peterson 4x4 or something about the early raptors and how you could buy a f150 and modify it yourself for less than the raptors.

But if your not towing and just driving the diesel get better fuel economy but at a higher maintenance cost while the gas gets less fuel economy but cheaper maintenance etc.

Whats makes you have a diesel, do you tow? Obviously towing abilities are going to disappear. I personally have many friends(one in particular) with ecoboosts that have had a few problems. Why not get the diesel f-150?

I don't have any real answers other than I'm just getting tired of the climbing in and out. Sometimes it's a parking thing....lol

Not really looking for a F150 diesel. I've not had to tow anything significant (10k+) in the last year.

MPGs are a concern somewhat, but at 18MPG HWY if the Raptor can do that then it's a equal to my PSD.

Figured there may be a few more people who swapped over the PSD that could give some info. Thanks for the replies so far, keep them coming.

They're beautiful trucks but I couldn't justify paying the $88k for the '19 we have sitting in the showroom

On the army several have gone to 150's.
I saw something the other day that claimed the 19 in awd with the v6 would be the second fastest truck ever produced. Didn't look any more into it though.

$88k?? LOL....Dealer offered me $69k plus T/T for a $75k+ door sticker. It was going to be just under $75k out the door.

I did go thru a test ride the other day which is why I'm asking for info. Seemed to have the pedal response of my tuned '15 PSD. Of course the ride was significantly better all things considered with the "overpriced suspension". Show me a "cheap" suspension that has 2.5" shocks w/resi's for a SD. I started to tell myself it's cheaper to get those King setups and see how they ride.

I'm not sure but it was said that the SD line and F150 have the same cab but I cannot confirm that data.
