8. Date: 2014 Ford Raptor

2014 Ford F 150 SVT Raptor

What a muscular machine! Ford’s SVT Raptor spends hours at the gym each day, runs marathons in his spare time and rides a motorcycle… with no helmet or shirt. Ladies, this is the kind of vehicle you lust after. But is this burly pickup all brawn and no brains? Mayhaps. It’s literally the life of any party, but it’s saddled with plenty of deal-breakers, like fuel economy and pricing.

The truck is motivated by a frightfully inefficient 6.2-liter V8 engine that provides a 411 hp smack to the face and 434 lb-ft of torque. On the consumption front the best it can muster is a pitiful 16 miles per gallon on the highway. The Ford Raptor is a s**t-ton of fun but it firmly remains in the “date” category; and ladies, if you let him take you out he’ll probably spend too much time looking at himself in the mirror or answering texts from other women. You’ve been warned.
