The SVT Raptor is an awesome road truck with incredible handling dynamics and still has amazing off-road capabilities. The problem is that it's burdened with only one engine available; the 6.2L (gas guzzler) and a 4.10 axle ratio with MPG = 11 city, 14 highway. The gas mileage alone is enough to scare me off! Since engines are air pumps requiring fuel at roughly 14 parts air to 1 part fuel, it seems a smaller engine, or a numerically lower axle ratio to lower engine RPM would improve gas mileage. So why is the 3.5L eco-boost not an option? Or why can't I order a Gear Vendor's overdrive system to lower highway RPM?
