Boat anchor?!? Obviously you have not driven one or do not know how to properly use all the features the Raptor offers, like off-road mode or how to disable the traction control or roll stability control. No other manufacturer out there offers the likes of the Raptor. I have driven my 5.4 on sand dunes (Silver Lake Sand Dunes) and there was not a dune I could not easily climb, while I saw others struggle to even get close to the top. Maybe you should do some real research before commenting or perhaps find another job?
A "boat anchor of an engine"? Come now Phil. Have you actually driven a 5.4 Raptor in its element? Or are you just assuming? Because I have, and while certainly more is better, the 5.4 Raptor is every bit as capable as the 6.2 in almost all situations; I think you'll be hard pressed to find an owner of either that would dispute that. And in any case, I doubt you'll find anyone with actual behind the wheel experience that would call it a boat anchor.
