2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Would I Put Up With This?

May 02, 2011


This is the price of driving a Raptor in L.A., as least it is for now. As I watched the numbers climb I asked myself, "Would I be willing to pay this much to drive this truck?"

After deep contemplation, and half a Snickers bar I found in the glovebox, I came to the conclusion that yes, yes I would.

Granted, it's a big expense, but the Raptor is worth it. I enjoy driving it no matter what I'm doing. Obviously, it's hugely entertaining on a fire road, but it's just as enjoyable hauling down the 405. If I had a long commute I'd probably reconsider, but I don't. It's not a truck for everybody, but I would find a way to make it mine.
