Ford Debuts 2013 Raptor and F-150 Limited

Both new models are small revision over the outgoing trucks. They do both have new features though. The Raptor will be getting better headlights, new paint, and a trick set of wheels. While the Limited will be going on with minor adjustments and a new motor. Details below.

Read about it here: Ford Debuts 2013 Raptor and F-150 Limited

+1 and how is this an "improvement" over 411 hp?

The F-150 Limited has also learned some new tricks. Predicatbly, it's getting the 3.5L Ecoboost V6, improving the truck's mileage to 22mpg highway, and improving power to 365 ponies.

The September 2011 issue of Truck Trend Magazine showed a dyno test of the three engines.
The Eco Boost put out more power then either V8 all the way to 5000 RPM.

At that point, it's torque curve then fell off more rapidly then the 6.2 allowing the 6.2 to claim more "peak horsepower" which was at about 5600 RPM.

The Eco Boost torque curve is much flatter, so accelerating with that type of engine will give a more linear acceleration. The V8s have a rising torque curve, which means an increase in acceleration rate with RPM, which is more exciting; more
"muscle car" like. If that what you like, get a V8.

IF you're going to pull your 10,000 lb. trailer over the Rocky Mountains, or even at sea level, the Eco Boost looks like the best performing gas burner in a pickup truck.

That's ok, I don't do much towing, and only wind through the lower RPMs once from a dead stop and then I stay in the higher RPMs with each upshift after that.

I still stand by my statement that Ford's claim is false and misleading:

The 411 hp may give you bragging rights (mines bigger) but the 365hp EB will beat it in the 1/4 mile and tow just as much weight.

I'm not interested in bragging, I'm interested in truth in marketing, and Ford is just plain lying. They should be ashamed. If they wanted to say "quickest F-150" or "tied for highest tow rating" then they should have just said that instead, LOL.

That article didnt com from Ford. It came from an auto writer, so how exactly is Ford lying? Their site shows nothing about the limited "upping HP". Just an error on the writers behalf.

Does the new F-150 have water proof hubs? Is it waterproof at all?. Or just for highway use like previous models? Can it now do more than 100,000 miles without going hideously wrong every month? Do standard sized humans still need a stepladder to get something out of the bed? Has the bed been given substantial tie-downs? Have they made it smaller, or lighter? Have they made it as good as the world Ranger?
Guess where my money's going next year.
