The 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R Is Scary Quick But Shockingly Friendly

The car business is going through some odd times. The 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R is the result of Ford reintroducing

a V8 to the Raptor after two generations and years of waiting. Ford is also producing an all-electric F-150 pickup vehicle at the same time. 

 Going from the extremes of Ford's (and America's) best-selling vehicle, the supercharged, Shelby-powered Raptor R, to

the all-electric F-150 Lighting may be disorienting.You might say that combustion-powered cars are now in the same awkward situation as

 the last dinosaurs when they were watching an asteroid speed through the sky.

There has to be a Velociraptor among those creatures, right?

Without it, the metaphor is ineffective, but indulge me. Okay, no.
