Hopefully with a more powerful option to crush the Wrangler 392... hybrid possibly??
I’d bet a variation of the hybrid system that’s currently in the aviator

Agreed on the hog package a variant of the squatch.
I've been thinking something like this. An alternative suspension setup for the WT. In a couple of years the Warthog will be out, and the WT will still have a crowd like me that wants to go to the desert or open trails, vice crawling, and but doesn't quite need the Warthog.

Then as suspension evolves, the WT suspension in future years could roll down to the other models and become standard. Old Warthog suspension rolls to WT, and the Warthog gets the newest shoes.

One can dream!

Could all this angst be the result of a non optimal wheel offset? Either way, for the trail I like the width.

Hopefully we keep getting news on the future Raptor/Warthog as I am 100% in on waiting for it. Unfortunately, paint color reveals and ManSquatch news no longer gets me very excited.

raptor, etc
Very interested. Pro, in my opinion, the raptor is a much better driving truck than a normal 150. Love mine. And the difference when getting a 150 loaner is stark. Con, the width means parking and some parking decks requires greater consideration for us city dwellers. But, I think it's that width that is a contributing factor to just how planted it feels, even on the pavement. Curious as to actual width compared w/ Raptor. If it's as wide, will stick w/ the squatches.

The Raptor cabin is not wider.
Yeah, seeing this seals my decision to NOT go with the Raptor/Warthog. Wife was on board but we both think it's too wide. Badlands or Wildtrak will be enough without looking overblown.

How much you think something like this would cost?
I'm beginning to think maybe they arent calling it a raptor so when it comes in at the same price as the truck, it isn't canabalizing sales. Hope it's not that much but based on the FE and what we are seeing with this starting to seem that way. Otherwise why not use the raptor name on it like with the ranger, its instantly recognized at this point as top tier off roader

I'd bet it's high 50's to low 60's to start. Easily hitting 70 when you go buck wild (LOL) with box-checking.
