The suspension is softer for more travel. has a lower rating than other f150s

Can't explain the others you've seen, you see my pic, it aint squattin. And mileage???? What's that?

Raptors get crappy mileage, period...HOWEVER....It get's better mileage than my Lexus LX470 everywhere, and it doesn't demand Premium. Lexus when towing got 10 mpg of 93 octane, Raptor gets 12 on regular.

Honestly, I really don't care that much about mileage, I would just get all tense and would probably start oggling the rear end of Prius hybrids...gawd forbid. IN-ADDITION, getting all bound up about tow vehicle mileage when towing a boat the burns 8-10 gallons per hour at best kinda lacks some logic in my book.

Raptors are so awesome they can tow upside down.

But a raptor is on my short list of vehicles... still hard to part with a diesel..
