EcoBoost Raptor

I am a Ford Raptor finatic. I had this idea talking with a current Raptor owner about would he drive the Raptor if it had the 3.5L Ecoboost engine in it? Without thinking he said Yeah! I think everyone who wants to own the Raptor as I do should have the option to get the truck with a more economical engine than the 6.2L. In the torture test videos it clearly shows the ecoboost motor could handle the beating in the Baja race, so why not offer it on the Raptor truck? Plus, I think it this could possibly make the SVT Raptor a little more affordable to own as far as fuel expenses go.

I recomended the 3.5 Ecoboost in the raptor two years ago, but Ford choise to ignore it. I also think there is a market for it. Another thing I would like to see is for Ford to offer different packages so Buyers could come closer to getting just what they want. Not have to take something they do not want just to get what they do want.
Thank You Stetson

You hit on my gripe and request as well. Raptor could become my first truck if Ford came through with this. After all, they have already hinted at it coming and they are preaching consumer options.
