The new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew got more attention on Twitter than any other vehicle during the 2016 Detroit Auto Show media days.

An average of 25 tweets per minute about the 2016 Detroit Auto Show were recorded while 87,000 tweets were sent in total over the two press days, January 11 and 12.

After the Raptor, the new Chrysler Pacifica Minivan garnered the most twitter love, followed by the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Lexus LC500. Finally, the new Audi h-tron Quattro Concept finishes out the top five.

Though Ford had already debuted the Raptor at last year’s Detroit Auto Show, the off-road special truck was revealed again, this time as a longer SuperCrew model.

Twitter also noted that Nissan and Volvo both created a fair amount of buzz for tweets showing off the GT-R and the interior of the new S90 respectively.

    I bet some people replace the V6 with a V8. If there was a kit out there with an engine and the electronics needed, you could sell it.
