No prior sales to justify that build.
I just dont get it.
Trucks still have a huge profit margin when compared to small/mid size cars, so the Raptor is easier to justify.

Now that the content is 80% global, we should see very strong aftermarket support, companies like Koni, H&R, Cosworth, et al. should have very strong product selection coming out soon. Also, with the content sharing, if/when performance versions of this gen are released in Europe, the parts should be adaptable.
