    The Top Gear page on Facebook posted this. No time listed which is kind of stupid, I'm rather curious what it was.

    Also that's two episodes in a row of them liking American vehicles. I'm scared now...

    So the new Raptor will have a modified version of Ecoboost V6 rumored to be at ~450hp. That is all well and good for a stock engine, but I can't help but think it severly hinders the aftermarket. Lots of companies offered blown versions of the old V8 producing massive HP. To get that Ecoboost V6 to the same power levels? I think it will simply not be mechanically reliable enough for those 600hp+ numbers without major modifications (expensive).

    God damn tree hugging hippies.

    You're gonna get all the good stuff at much lower RPM's with the Ecoboost. How many people actually get modified versions of the Raptor engine for it to matter?

    The only big difference I see is people not liking the sound of a turbo V6 compared to a V8.

    People who have 60k to throw at a pick up truck, usually have money to modify them.

    My point being, I think it's going to be a hell of a lot more difficult to get the same modified numbers with that Ecoboost V6 than the older V8.

    Gillian Anderson was having so much fun, it was infectious.

    People always go on about how they hate American cars, but almost every single time they actually drive them they fall in love. Folks have the narrative in their heads and ignore that the results are overwhelmingly positive in the end.

    How long do we think that Hammond was actually on the mountain?

    I don't think it's going to be that much more difficult. The same engine will be in the GT that comes out that year. They're claiming it'll have around 600hp from the factory. Seems like there should be plenty of potential for the aftermarket. The Raptor's is gonna be set up to to produce a crazy amount of torque to go along with that 450hp.

    I fucking lost it when Clarkson was driving along, constantly turning the huge light on and off to annoy James. It's times like that when they're doing stuff just to fuck with each other that the show is at it's best.

    The Porsche super hybrid is cool as fuck. Then came the McLaren and Ferrari ones and we're all HOLY SHIT!

    Koenigsegg was like "LOL".
