2010 Ford F-150 Raptor: Cruise Control Relic

August 16, 2010

I griped about it in 2007 on our Ford Edge. I whined further when the same interface plagued our 2009 Ford Edge. And here we are, deep into 2010, with the same craptacular cruise control interface on our longterm 2010 Ford Raptor.

I won't bother rehashing the same shorcomings, as absolutely nothing has changed from those earlier blog entries. Read the above links for a blow-by-blow. But I will summarize them.

1. No cancel button

2. No status light

3. Buttons feel the same and are stacked in a column, reinforcing the same-ness

4. Can't be left permanently on

5. Is not the BMW stalk

C'mon, Ford. The fluid in the Raptor's shocks costs $100 per ounce but you refuse to pony up for a halfway decent cruise interface?
