I like the idea behind the Raptor, just dont like the looks if the front end or the price tag behind it.

Why would you link an article with the "Spy Shots" and not good photos of the actual vehicle?

I think it looks badass. I don't care for the graphics on the rear of the orange colored one, but the black one looks sick.

That price tag is cheap for what you're getting.

x2, it's only 38k. if you're in the market for a new full size truck, 38k does not seem like that much to me.

Those are spy shots of the 4 door though. I don't think there are any without camo right now of the actual 4 door.

Gotcha. I didn't catch that the title was 4 door raptor, and not just raptor in general.

For only $1k more than the 6.2 ex cab base price, that's a pretty nice family mover / grocery getter.

Price is very reasonable for what you get, although you will never find them at the base price, every one I've seen is mid-high $40s, but they are higher option content than my 09 XLT which is ~$39k for the 4 door....

If they could tow a touch more, I'd have considered holding out for one. And I am liking the mileage I get in mine, guessing the 35s and height would knock 2-3 mpg off that.

that price is super cheap for what you get. my opinion...Best production truck ever built. That same truck with a few engine mods and saftey mods is running the baja and doing really good!!!

I want one.

If I had the cash and wanted a sweet half ton, I'd buy it in a heartbeat even though I'm more of a Dodge guy.

The only thing with the Raptor is they have no rebates most sell for sticker price for 2009 when they first came out the did not even offer A-plan/X-plan.

The new 6.2 crew cab should be bad azz!! I cant wait till we get them in
