EcoBoost Raptor makes Autoguide's "Top 10 Practical Performance Vehicles" List

Autoguide recently published a list of the "Top 10 Practical Performance Vehicles". Coming in at number 5 on the list is our friend the Ford EcoBoost Raptor. Here's what Autoguide had to say about the Raptor.

Quote:
But sometimes you need an open bed, which the Grand Cherokee can not offer unless you possess a reciprocating saw. Eliminating the need to slice and dice is the Ford Raptor. This ground-pounding pickup is certifiably bad a**, with copious ground clearance, dedicated hardware and the power to back it all up. Under the hood it features a 6.2-liter V8 that delivers 411 ponies and 434 lb-ft of torque. All told this SVT F-150 is fast, tough and extremely desirable.
And this is the full list:

10. Dodge Charger Hellcat
9. Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model 4MATIC Wagon
8. Subaru WRX STI
7. Volkswagen Golf R
6. Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT
5. Ford F-150 SVT Raptor
4. Chevy SS
3. Audi RS7
2. Porsche Panamera Turbo S
1. BMW X5 M

Ecoboost engine is a big improvement for the Raptor. That is a great engine lineup that Ford has developed. They've built more than 5 million of them now.

They were certainly on point with timing. The fact that they can use EcoBoost in the Mustang and the Raptor, a well as other more mainstream vehicles is awesome. Shows how versatile the engine is. Also plays well into the One Ford strategy.

So, by practical I am guessing that they mean usable in everyday life, as opposed to some type of roadster that has a trunk so small you can't fit a purse into it. Is that what you guys are getting?
