    Halo products also showcase innovation, technology advancements, passion and brand equity.

    They evoke irrational attachment, pride and aspiration.

    And if Ford is unable to get Hino to release the Raptor name, it could be even more embarrassing.

    Gotta love the near sighted plodders at Ford...

    there's no way ford would be at all worried about this HSV 'rumour', especially given the history of the general following through with rumours and concepts over the years.
    I feel you have a point.

    If you look at where HSVs sales have been over the years there is a reasonable percentage of repeat custom.

    What hs gone on in the past is sort of misleading if the point is to provide your customer base with an option.

    Not everyone can go with a camaro, so a performance 4 door Ute offers an interesting choice in the face of no choice at all.

    I normally wouldn’t be looking at this product, but seriously what choice is there?

    For HSV the engine has to start with a 3 something and you would look to be attracting customers from SS and not just the Ute version, clubbie and not just maloo.

    In Fords position, is Raptor a Ford Performance product or a Ford product?

    Will be interesting to see what comes of this, and if anything of the new "Commodore".

    Surely Walkinshaw aren't going to walk away from that product without doing something.

    The jury is still out who is Ford whatever in performance but a Stinger owned Pony GT opppps.

    If I was Ryan, talking Colorado I'd be looking at offering lowered tweaked versions as well, say 25mm down with honking wheels.
    Very easy to set up with sorted out own spec required by Kings and billys to suit for eg.
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.

    It’s the height that concerns me most with these but let’s face it, if it’s the only option you take it

    Let HSV have their tuner Colorado, I suspect that the Ranger Raptor will be an absolute bargain in comparison.

    and then someone like Prodrive will be there to make sure that the more hardcore buyer is catered for as well.

    My money is on tune, some branded shocks and wheels and a sticker pack.
