Roush F150 vs Raptor

Just though I'd share this interesting comparison video that compares the value found in a Roush tuned F150 versus the Raptor. In terms of sticker price they are nearly identical ($69k) depending on the various options that you choose. One of the main differences between the two models is availability as the Raptor models sell out extremely quickly and often well above the suggested MSRP. I think there is one key factor that he leaves out of this comparison and that's resale value. It would be far easier to make back your money on the Raptor variant.

I'm with him on the Raptor for resale value. Rarely has a truly iconic pick up come out. There was the SRT-10 RAM 1500 decades back but rarely you'd see on.
Even with all the time rival brands had to compete here, they failed and the Raptor still raises the bar.

Well the Roush tuned F150 does have significantly more horsepower on tap (650), so that's well worth taking into consideration. Roush also offers a full 3 year powertrain warranty on the tuning kit and I believe that they are currently in development of a supercharger.

I would personally go with the Roush. Its got way more power, and its more widely available. Ford really needs to step up their performance division, and start offering kits/aftermarket parts for their Raptor models.

The limited availability of the Raptor is something that has only reinforced its value, and I expect that we will see similar issues with the upcoming Ranger variant. Ford purposely builds these models in a limited capacity, to keep demand and pricing high.

At 30,000 Raptors sold last year. When you sell at that volume its no longer a limited model
