...and mine didn't back in the 80s. On the plus side, that car DID teach me how to swap a carb in under 10 minutes in the left turn lane! Part-time alternator was also an interesting feature too.

The raptor name is actually from the dinosaur not the F22, sorry it’s super evident with the graphics....
Broncosaurus is the obvious name we need

Ford has a bunch of horse names: Mustang, Pinto, Bronco. Great - horses are cool, and fast and exciting.
But, then they come up with a Bronco model named the Warthog.
How does that make any sense? Is it a horse crossed with a pig, or a hog riding a horse?
I'm so confused.
Trim level im thinking

Nope, it has a heavier duty frame for starters.
Wonder if there will be different trim Levels of the warthog....i.e. Wildtrak, Badlands etc.....

What other horse-related names can you call it? A wild horse has its own name and that is already a car that Ford makes, and a popular one at that. We don't really need to add to the controversy that already exists around it.

So what next? Unicorn? Since it can fly? Zebra if they offer it with racing stripes? Donkey if it has a big ass? Mule if it's meant to work? Clydesdales if they have big feet? I can go on with horse-based puns all day.
If Scotland can have a mythical creature like the Unicorn as its national animal, I can sure as shit drive a Warthog.

the warthog is probably the most famous tank killing aircraft...it also saved untold American soldiers lives ..the nickname for it by those who were protected by it is “the hand of God”


but the warthog is also one tough animal

maybe this video will help

Okay - we're talking A-10 Warthog, one of the most bad-ass planes ever made that can take massive damage and still fly and fight

NOT this

but then we ask ourselves why did the military name its A10 a warthog?

why ..because it’s one tough wild animal

I think that ford should honor the greatest warrior of the old west. And this should be the nameplate.

I like the "Crazy Horse" naming, but someone would clam some sort of butt hurt over using it, just like what has happened to the Washington Red Skins. smh.....
