Default Thinking about buying a new truck

Heres the deal . I have test drove a 6.2 Ford Raptor and really like it. But before that i test drove a 2500 HD duramax GMC. I dont do a great deal of towing or hauling.
But the Ford engine scares me. Anyone have any info on the new Ford power plant? Thanks For the info.

You get a warranty, what's to be afraid of?

And yet you walked into the Ford dealer and test drove a Raptor

the 6.0 is trash.

sorry to hear about the 5.4 sounds like your not having good luck at all with ford motors.

havnt heard much in the way of anything other than the 6.2 has lots of power.

i mean they ran the 6.2 at the baja 1000 and came in 13th place...you know they werent playing nice with it and it finshed the race with no probs.

I bought my 05 GMC Sierra Duramax new in 2005 and it has been a great truck. 98k on the odometer. Would highly recommend it!

Walk into Ford, tell them to drop off a Raptor without a drivetrain at a discount. Buy a Cummins, have someone throw it in. Done.

Ramtor has a really nice ring to it. All it needs is an emblem of a Raptor with horns on it.
