2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: OG Gauges are Better
June 13, 2011
Just last week I wrote about the gauge setup in our '85 911. The sheer number of dials makes it feel like a true cockpit, not to mention relaying quite a bit of information. The Raptor may not have the old timey look, but its collection of dials does an equally thorough job.
You're got your oil pressure, water temperature, fuel of course, and hidden behind the steering wheel there's a transmission fluid temperature gauge.That's quite a bit of info packed into a pretty small space yet it doesn't look overcrowded. Ford tried to give the setup an update for 2011, but it doesn't look any better. I still prefer the black on white gauges, it is an SVT truck after all.
Oh, and by the way, I didn't have any trouble with the seatbelt at all this weekend. No idea what Schmidt and company are talking about.
