Nah. Just a 1LT(P). But I only live 4 miles from work, so my monthly mileage in the states is around 400. Not too bad.

My wife, on the other hand, drives about 800 miles a month. I'm estimating a $350/mo fuel bill. Only up about $110 from present.

re: 2013 Ford Raptor SuperCrew (Updated w/Pics)


Your observations are not incorrect.

Ford has made great strides in recent years, though. Halo cars like the Ford GT, putting tons of money into new engines like the EcoBoost,, and bringing their diesel engine design back in-house. It's too bad they sold Jaguar, which they had owned since 1989. They turned that marque into a really quality brand. They tried to do the same with Rover, but since they only had it since 2001, they didn't have the same success.

As trucks go, as domestic automakers go. GM's new designs for 2014 are an improvement, but nothing earth shattering. Ford's 2015 redesign looks like it will trump them.

Just messing with ya, if you can afford it by all means...go for it.

Many younger troops get bogged down in deep debt from the easy access to credit, especially with vehicles.

I picked up a Harley Sportster through the AAFES program while deployed to Iraq in '06. Does Harley still participate?

You are going to hate the gas mileage. I hear its one of the worst out there. Get the F150 instead.

Well all it is, is a 150 with a 6.2L engine in it, different front end grill, and specialty shocks nothing special about it really

He's talking about a mustang GT. Ford GT's haven't been made in nearly a decade.
