M5 vs 17 Ford Raptor

Hi. I'm not a truck guy. I've never had a truck. I don't have one in my definitive desire list.

Can anyone please tell me what's the big deal with these Raptors? What am I missing here? They are everywhere I look and on every magazine too. Thanks in advance.

My 2014 I got is still worth what I got for it I paid 56 got 54 on trade they're selling for 51-54 with 35-50k miles... Almost like a GTR at its peak resale value.

Amazing handling with the fox shocks, if you've ever driven a jeep grand cherokee between 2011-2014 this truck can take turns faster and smoother, not to mention being almost off road worthy, the 6.2 sounds amazing,


Navigation and sound system was garbage but everything else was amazing... I expect big things from the 2017 not sure about the engine and how forced induction will translate into resale but I was very happy with the truck for the 5 months I had it. I really wish I'd kept it over the M4 and had the Truck and GTR.

I also had a 2014 Raptor that I bought new in addition to the cars listed in my signatures. Out of the 3, the truck got the most run. I can drive it in terrible weather, take the dogs out, have great cargo capacity and the ride is amazing for a truck. My suggestion is to change out the rear leafs if you aren't going to pull trailer to Deavers and you will be all set.

The new raptors I believe are V6 ecoboost with 450hp & 510tq. Their resale value are amazing. I currently own a 2016 F150 limited. I love that truck.

Raptors are unique given their production numbers compared to even the avg. diesel, but yes generally you are correct.

My raptor was blue and of the 1500 Raptors listed for sale, only 99 are currently for sale for blue, its amazing to see between 20-60k miles they're still selling for high to mid 40s and 70-110k they're in the high 30s... After 3+ years.

mine had a sticker of 56 so knowing I could have drove 30k miles and still got 49k for it would have been a better bet to keep it.
