2017 Ford Raptor gets Flappy Paddles



The Ford Raptor will gain a pair of flappy paddles in its latest iteration, matching well with the new 10 speed transmissions wider ratio spread

Hameedi seems proud of the fact that the new Raptor gets paddle shifters to augment the awkward rocker switch on the console shifter. It sounds like this new super-truck is going to need them.

Good move going with paddle shifters although it's going to feel weird flicking away at those in a truck. What a change from what we had!

yeah it's going to be much nicer dealing with these paddle shifters than a toggle shifter.

Paddle shifters are a welcome addition. I like them for the Raptor. Should make it fun to drive and it will appeal to a wider audience since the youngins don't really like driving actual manuals.

When it comes to vehicles that are performance focused, there's a different mindset with those folks over someone who just wants a car. Where did you hear yougins don't really like driving manuals?

its a statistical lie. in enthusiast vehicles the manual take rate is MUCH higher then the 7% bandied about as the death knell of three pedals...
