Ford Raptor Has No Reason To Fear The Reaper

Chevy Reaper vs Ford Raptor

It’s about time Chevy produced their own version of a serious off-road truck, but will it be good enough to last? When looking at a few of Chevy’s previous pickup debacles, it’s only natural to be a little skeptical. For example, we all had to endure Chevy trucks like the Avalanche as it did its best impression of an 8th-year college senior trying to decide its major: “Should I be a terrible pickup? Or an even worse SUV?” And the smaller Colorado truck didn’t exactly “wow” anyone, and it eventually had to take a break and start over. So it raised the question: Will the Reaper actually serve a purpose in the truck world? Or will Chevy take another one up the tailpipe?

The all-new Chevy Reaper really has only one other competitor to outperform, the Ford Raptor. Since 2009, the Ford Raptor has been one of the only radical half-ton pickup trucks with a terrain-hungry demeanor on the market. Ford got it right by building a pickup with well over 400 horsepower that could tear up the back 40 and still remain poised enough to double as an everyday driver.

At first look, the Chevy Reaper is essentially a “roided” out version of a 2014 Silverado, which is a very good truck. With the help of Southern Comfort Automotive, the Reaper features some pretty attention-grabbing visuals. Mud-thirsty black beadlock rims wrapped in BFG rubber, a pissed-offed looking front-end and massive fender flares should all be good enough to get any redneck aroused. However, after noticing a few details, I have to fault Chevy for awkwardly photo-bombing Ford a little bit. I just can’t help but to call the Reaper out for doing its best impression of a “creeper” on the Raptor.

reaper and raptor graphics

Are these graphic packages not eerily similar?

The Reaper? Really? Is it just me or does Reaper sound a little bit too much like Raptor? It’s not just the name that’s eerily similar to Ford’s version of an off-road truck, there’s more. The Reaper, like the Raptor, also features a Fox Racing suspension, a very similar skid plate peeking out from its undercarriage and almost identical rim offerings. Not to mention the Reaper basically has the same “shredded” (or whatever you call those) looking graphics awkwardly pasted onto its truck bed. I’m not saying Ford’s look good back there, but they at least came up with the awful idea first, right?

Where it looks like the Reaper will at least separate itself from the Raptor is with engine performance. Packing a more potent punch under the hood, select Reaper models will be able to churn out as much as 550 horsepower thanks to an available 6.2-liter supercharged engine, which trumps the 2014 Raptors only engine offering by nearly 140 ponies.

Before anyone decides to hand over the off-road crown to the Reaper, I would like to point out the fact that Ford is more than capable of upping the ante in terms of power. I don’t know how many of you follow the off-road truck world, but for 2013 Raptor models, Ford did produce a limited production Shelby edition which featured a 575-horsepower engine. As far as I can tell, Ford hasn’t issued a Reaper rebuttal with the return of the Shelby nameplate for future Raptor models as of yet, but I’m sure we’ll see something.

Winner of the CarDebate: The Ford Raptor

ford raptor front endIt’s really hard to say which truck is a more capable option. Both trucks are outfitted with some serious terrain-hungry equipment, and both really do look impressive (apart from the rear graphics). The only concern I have with the Reaper, is that it might just have too much power. I know, a truck with too much power sounds about as logical as a basketball player that can jump too high, but there is some reasoning behind it.

The Raptor has earned its merit because of its handling and feel; I’m curious to see if all that extra horsepower the Reaper harnesses will affect its driving ability or not. Nothing is more frustrating to a serious auto enthusiast than a lack of vehicle composure, which is certainly required to accomplish harry off-road maneuvers. Perhaps too much power is why we don’t see a 575-horsepower Shelby Raptor anymore. So for that fact alone, until both trucks can actually square off in a real driving situation, I’ll have to keep my money on the tried-and-true Raptor.


  1. Sounds like someone wrote this because they were butt hurt that the reaper is more kickass. Yeah its similar to a raptor in ways because its supposed to compete with it you tard. You wouldn’t build a corvette to compete with a rock crawler…. some peoples kids.

      • Of course they are going to have similar stylings they both are baja styled trucks!!!
        that logo on the back is what every baja truck has ford didnt invent that logo get your facts right.
        In terms of fox shocks they are both gonna use them cause they are the best.
        Now lets talk performance a regular crew cab raptor 0-60 is 7.7s if you pay shelby america 20k for the optional 575hp its 0-60 time is only 5.1. this is still a slower time than a reaper. the reapers base engine has more hp than the raptors. it runs a 5.0 with the base engine and a 4.3 with the supercharged one. Get your facts straight Reapers are faster better looking higher performance and they are less expensive without sacrificing any performace. and a chevy colorado was a wow in my book besides the in line 5 it was a solid truck offroad.

        Nice try little brother Chevy has always been better than they always will be.

    • I’m a Chevy fan but I do think they copied ford a bit on this one. I think the ford looks a bit better too. And for those who argue that they are supposed to look the same because they are in the same league, thats untrue and laughable. Doesn’t a Lamborghini and Pagani look different? Are they not in the same league? Or even a Chevy cobalt and ford focus… Anyway you get my drift. But I do think this review is a bit biased, it shows the Chevy stats beating the fords and yet the Ford wins because it “might” come out with the Shelby Engine? If we are comparing two vehicles on what could possibly be added then who’s to say Chevy might be puting jet thrusters on the next line of reaper’s.

    • but the point is that you and chevy motors was ASS-HURT because yall motherfuckers couldnt come up with ya own design so you had to steal fords.

      • Chevy did not “copy” any of the Ford vehicles. They simply came up with competitor vehicles made to compete with Fords. Any asshole that says “Chevy copied Ford” clearly doesn’t know how business works.

  2. I would take the raptor any day over that garbage, and just look at the raptor compared to the reaper. Everything is the same except for the ford’s better looking front end. Oh guess what chevy copies again

  3. Yes Chevy clearly copied 90% of the truck and the Chevy people will say it’s better and the Ford fans will say it’s a cheap copy. Both are very expense and far less capable than a real pre-runner but rich dads want to feel badass in them. Also, the article mentions the Shelby Raptor but leaves out the far more common Roush version that cranks out 590 hp and just as much torque. I personally love the Raptor as a stock truck and have no problem with a baja-built Chevy but I think the Raptor will stay on top. The Ram runner looked like it could swallow a Raptor and for $10k less the stock Raptor outperformed it. The Roush Raptor is on an entire different level than anything Chevy makes to compete.

  4. Chevy always outdoes and outperforms ford in every aspect. That’s what is happening right now with the reaper versus raptor. Makes ford guys mad, I understand. Sorry ford fans lol

  5. Not really. They just take all the ideas of ford n multiply them just to top ford. When Chevy can come up with their own truck that isn’t a copy with a super charged engine then I’ll give Chevy props. But I won’t for copying a bad ass truck like the raptor. The only reason the reaper has a chance to compete is its 550 HP super charged engine an 90% of the raptor body

  6. Ford Raptor. All the way! Chevy’s build quality is cheap as hell and I’ve had the first hand experience to back it up. They look nice ill give em that, but they’ll never outperform ford in terms of getting a quality product and getting your moneys worth.

    • Ive had both brands and made my choice that Chevy was better quality and out preformed against its equal ford competitor trucks for a lower price.

      • I can’t fathom how you could see anything GM makes that isn’t simply rebadged as better than the comparable Ford offering. The build quality is night-and-day better with Ford.

      • I’ve had both to. And Chevy is my pick any day of the week, Heck I have a Ford Lightning that’s my baby. But a die hard Chevy fan here.

  7. As a Tundra owner I really don’t have a dog in this fight but can honestly say the Chevy is a sorry looking rip off.

    Besides my truck will actually still be running when all the fords and chevys are on their 2nd engines and transmissions….lol

  8. Personaly I really like both chevys and fords. But the Chevy is going to have the edge in this fight. But both look Fearsome. And they most likely will be the same. I would pick the Chevy though. Because of there reliability

  9. I agree with people saying it looks alot like the raptor, but at the same time it would be hard to make a kick-ass truck with out it, like honestly what could they have done other then the front end that wouldn’t make it a raptor copy, or a shitty looking truck? its not really fair to say Chevy copied the graphics either, ford doesn’t own copyright to the back end just because they have a decal there first, they don’t even look the same, like honestly look at the two pictures. People are just trying to pick anything they can.
    Lets be serious, im pretty sure every brand has used another’s look. It’s no doubt ford did a good job making the raptor, Chevy is doing its best to please its customers by bringing a off road truck with some intense power, so if you had it that much by a raptor it sure isn’t gonna offend anyone.

  10. I don’t know why people are saying its 90% copy, the only copy i see are the decals (Sorta) and the Name, other than that just because the shocks and exhaust are the same doesn’t mean its copied, there just high preformace parts that ford does not own, they both have there own body styles. so if you all think thats 90% please do yourself a favor and call up your old math teachers.

  11. Both are BA raptor is original but the Chevy upped it with the hp and torque just because Chevy got the same high performance parts doesn’t mean anything top of the line is top of the line you don’t try and compete with something with lower grade parts just to be different then get your ass whooped! Chevy is different in looks on the body and placed the graphics at different angles. It’s all what you like I would choose the Chevy because I own one myself 5.3 vortec 2000 Chevy never had engine problems anyone that usually does have problems with don’t pay attention to their oil levels. I’ve ran the shit outta my Chevy mud runs and all it’s been through hell had to change the rear end a time or two but never any engine problems at 195xxx miles can’t beat that! Plus any of my family that’s ever had a for engine runs good but wiring is cheap as fuck always have electrical problems I’d rather change a rear end than deal with electrical problems to where you fix one problem that kills the batter than next it short circuits somethin else to much bs for me!

  12. Cevy will put that ford in the dirt anyday I have had bothbtruck treated then the same and the ford broke down a whole lot more then my chevy has ever

  13. How does a truck have to much power? if you cant handle it dont look at it. the chevy reaper is better in my opinion because their 6.2 l has 550hp and the raper has a 6.2L with 411hp. if your out 4×4 you need all the horse power you need. i would have voted the reaper!!!!!!!

    • Chevy’s 6.2L is supercharged, Ford’s 6.2 isn’t. If you put a Whipple supercharger on the Ford Raptor, it will give it about 180 more HP, which would make it more powerful than the Reaper.

  14. I dont think people realize that lingenfelter played a big role in the design and mechanics of these two trucks. So I dont see how chevy is copying the ford design at all because the two trucks are based off of their two mainline truck designs. I think that the person who wrote this was leaning towards the ford because they simply dont like Chevy and cant accept that the reaper is better on paper and on the playing field.

  15. you cant say that its better on paper based on the hp the ford has been tested and proven time and time again… as where the chvy has yet to to prove its self in my opinion ford started first and they will always finish first…

    • ford broke frames on their raptors. talk about quality. Chevy will make sure its a good product before they put it out.

  16. I find it funny that all the chevy fans only argument is the 140 hp advantage. Thats bececause it has a supercharger. Hennessy makes a supercharger kit for the raptor that puts out 800hp . Put that number in the comparison. Now watch all the chevy fans go silent.

    • Yeah, I’m sure you can put a supercharger of the same quality in the Reaper, you’ll get the same results. Stop trying to make Ford seem better when it’s plainly seen here that it’s not. You can’t fight the facts.

  17. Yes the chevy looks like a offroad badass, but its gonna drive like shit, just like how the ram runner does and its gonna costs 10 g more with that left over cash u could buy a roush raptor, which would trump the chevy. and would still be a good daily driver

    • bro it even says the raptor is more expensive than the REAPER so you’re wrong there and you dont know how any thing will run because you’re a frikin ford fan and you have never drivin something nice!!!!

  18. i have a 2012 Rouche Super Charged Ford Raptor. The Raptor has a 2-wheel differential, when you turn on the Super Charger and the differential the truck goes 137 mph. The Chevy Reaper Doesn’t have that. My Raptor can go into 40 inches of water and still kick ass. The only thing I do for my Raptor is get a tune up ever 6 months. The last truck i owned was a 2011 Chevy Siverado and it didn’t last to 100,000 miles.

    • Oh…you can turn your supercharger on and off? Please explain to me and the rest of the world how you do that.
      Apparently you don’t understand how anything works, so your entire post is invalid.

    • you’re a lian sack of crap the reaper will kick your raptor’s ass any day of the week and twice on sunday so keep your mouth shut about your gay raptor!!! nobody cares you choad!!

  19. hey ford fan look under the raptor and tell me where they took the idea for their suspantion it took them some time to copy chevy and the ram had followd

  20. Both are awesome. Only some can afford. And almost everyone that gets one won’t use it for what it’s made for. Simple as that. Better off getting a jeep or toyota and making a off road weapon that ls built for you

  21. (Raptor owner)my truck is kick ass in 4ft of water it’s called a lift kit lol
    I’m more of an off-road truck person I’m more of a Chevy guy I’d have to say both are good truck specs don’t mean shit it’s the performance first hand that matters you can say 800hp with stock rear end then you gas it wait what rear end! Ford Chevy Dodge all good trucks better than the little tundra anyway you see it. the only way to understand your truck itself and what It can do is to know the parts and all so if you want the best off-road truck build it yourself it’ll always turn out better especially if you put 40-60 grand in it which is what you’d spend on a new truck.

  22. I’m sure this comment had been made somewhere in the comments section I just haven’t found it yet. Personally I don’t think there should even be an argument. Anyone remember the bailout of GM and Chrysler??? Chrysler got like $12 billion to stay afloat while GM got like $53 billion. So really there shouldn’t be any competition to the Raptor as GM and Chrysler should be out of business and there wouldn’t be a Reaper or Ram Runner. And anyone hear about GM lately??? 4.8 million recalls in the first quarter of 2014 of which 490,200 are the new Chevy/GMC 1500′s. So really there’s not a whole lot to debate here. It seems 37 years of the top selling truck in America speaks for itself, all by a company that didn’t get a nickel of bailout money. Now, 4 years after Ford introduced the Raptor, Chevy has decided to come to the table and here we are debating if government bailed out Chevy has a better truck than Ford. I understand Fords aren’t completely bulletproof but the Reaper shouldn’t even be at the table.

    • Only reason ford has been the best selling truck for how many ever yrs is because they don’t count chevy and gmc together……bet when u combine them that they are the best selling truck

        • If you believe that you need to go back and look at the numbers. It goes back and forth between the two over the last 12 years with GM still out selling Ford by over 130,000 trucks total since 2002 even though Ford has outsold GM for the last 5 years.

        • the only reason ford sells more cars is beacause the people that buy them end up breaking down in them somewhere and finding they blew the motor or something and scrap them or sell for parts but once u buy a chevy or a dodge u wont need to buy another vehicle.

  23. Chevy fan, and always will be. I have a fully restored chevy K5 (76) and it had a 8.1 l vortex in it. Great truck. I also own a 2011 silverado and it is fantastic. Only issue I’ve had with it is the stupid tire warming lights that pop up when you tires are “low”. Can’t wait for the reaper to come out, because it is gonna prove itself right. I have faith in it, and I think it is gonna change everybody’s mind, and I’m sure it’ll turn the heads of ford fans. Gotta give the edge to ford though because it has been out for a couple years now, and it’s showed itself and how it performs. Two of my friends have raptors and they love em’. I like me too, but once the reaper comes out, it on like donkey kong!!!

  24. When it comes down to it, Ford guys will like Raptors, and Chevy guys will like the Reaper. I think they both appear to be nice vehicles. If you buy the reaper, I’m sure the decals will be optional just like on the raptor. I know if I bought one I wouldn’t want the decals on there because that does seem a bit like a poser move to make the name and graphics so similar. What’s the saying, that copying is the biggest form of flattery? No point in arguing, people already have their minds made up. Buy one of them and enjoy the ride

  25. Fact of the matter is that the raptor has been around longer and has been tested and proven…however its still a ford stands for Fix Or Repair Daily…in the past with any ford 4×4 I have always seen problems with weak undercarriage problems…also fords in general seem to me cheaply made…ive owned several chevy Z71s and they are by far the best truck offroading by far…ive had to pull several fords outta sand and mud for lack of power…plus the 5.3lt engine in chevy are far superior to any ford v8.. also any point is that the Reaper comes standard with a supercharged engine while ford uses turbos also the Reaper comes with a standard 3in lift with fox suspension…not sure if the raptor is lifted but looks much shorter than the Reaper..however.Hennessey Auto makes a veloc raptor pack that can boost the raptors engines hp to 810…but standard head to head the Reaper wins on paper…while it hasnt been proven since its so new…think of the Reaper as a Z71 on steroids…I put my vote for the Reaper bottoms down…it will prove itself…

    • The only Raptor that has turbos is the Velociraptor, which has over 800HP. The base raptor is naturally aspirated. and still is just barely missing the mark on the Reaper.

  26. Just want to point out that this is not built by Chevy. It is built by Lingenfelter with the help of Southern Comfort. So stop with the Chevy copied Ford comments. They didn’t, a third party company did.

    • bull crap you’re a dodge guy and you’re just pissed that the chevy reaper could kill the ram runner and actually general motors did build it u tard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. The level of fan-boy drivel in the comments is nauseating. While I do love the smell of interwebz butt-hurt in the morning, some of y’all take yourselves way too seriously. As unbiased third party (I drive a Jeep) I’m gonna have to say

  28. I am a Ford man but I think the reaper is sweet looking so all you Ford guys need to just chill we know yall like your trucks but I have seen more Lord’s being pulled out of the Mudd then chevy so what you say to that

  29. You guys are all a bunch of pussies and can’t handle that much power… I’m talking about those who like the raptor

  30. I don’t care what any body says fords are way better than Chevy’s even family members that i have who use to build chevys says that they would prefer a ford over a chevy

  31. Ram runner is a sheep on roids, and ain’t good for nothing but medeoker off roading, a raptor is an f150 with plastic surgery (literatly) and fix shocks, it’s ok on road but shit off road, reaper is ok off road and ok on road, so an off road truck with the looks to a boot, an f150 with a new front end or a bad ass tire cooker that’s got reliability and hp or one or the other shot shows. Ps Chevy runs deep as in Chevys got ford deep throtain

  32. Is anyone missing the fact that the raptor is a ford production truck. You can purchase one from any ford dealership. The reaper on the other hand is not a production vehicle, you cant go to the Chevy website and build it and order it from the factory, or for that matter, walk onto a dealership and pick one out. Advantage Ford!

  33. Why do you all compare the reaper to the ram runner I mean they are completely diffrent the chevy will beat the ford any day it has way more horse power and will leave a ford in the dust

  34. all the ford lovers are just jealous that chevy came out with something that could woop the raptor!!! so ya basically ford got the shaft!!!!!!!!!!

  35. Okay, so just because the chevy has more horsepower its better? and just because it came out after the ford and is similar makes ford better? both of these arguements are retarded coming from retarded fanboys that give both companies a bad name. Both look like great trucks (mind you i am a ford guy all the way). The raptor is a rpoven, very well balanced truck, but has the power disadvantage. The chevy looks like absolute shit, the front end is hideous, but hey they want to stand out and everyone has different taste. Then again, both of these trucks are most commonly going to be purchased by rich guys that will rarely if ever use them offroading, and they ware way overpriced compared to what you could get by making another vehicle just as good offroad with less money. They are both poser trucks. just how it is.

    i mean go look at any jeep forum or like, or something, older vehicles modded out for maybe a few thousand will outperform and be way more practical offroad than either of these trucks. Just as likely to break shit on the new ones but parts will cost 5x as much. these new ones are simply poser trucks.

  36. ok look the raptors front end is 90% the same as the f150 front end at least the reapers front end looks different from the silverados front end. plus the reaper has for power. i have owned a ford and a chevy/gmc and i will take a chevy/gmc over a ford anyday. all for does is put alot of boost in there trucks bc thats the only way to make them compete with a chevy/gmc. so i will personally take the reaper over the raptor any day. ford people i guess juts cant handle the power bc there not used to it.

  37. I’m a technician at a used car dealership and guess what i work on the most?? Chevrolet pieces of cheap junk, gm all all together. The reaper probably couldn’t handle all that power before falling a part anyways lol I love the raptor more

  38. The Chevy looks like they made it in a hurry. The Ford really looks like they actually took their time with every single detail. I think Chevy should have taken their time, but then again the price might be a lot lower.

  39. Chevy man till the day I die I’ll take a broken dodge before I take a new Ford but I own a Chevy because I love them. Its all pointless because if u buy what u like slap half the can act like a real man. Put the wrench time in do sum body work u can build your own amazing machine that could out perform both of them and look way better than eather

  40. Both trucks look good, they may both perform well. I’m a fan of neither brand. You don’t see chevy diesels pulling massive cattle trailers or car haulers down the road, it’s ford’s and dodges you see. Chevy couldn’t stay afloat and they are now owned by the government (how the fuck you burn billions of dollars is beyond me) ford has been the staple since the creation of the automobile.

    On another note look at the tundra rock warrior, they would smoke the chevy. Also for all you ignorant tard who say “them Chinese trucks” toyotas are built in Texas! Most chevy are built in Canada or Mexico you morons.

  41. Well of course the Reaper has more power, its super charged. Also the Reaper is ugly, Chevy is using there ugly new body style and slapped a dodge slanted front end on it. and really?copying fords paint job and has a similar name, real original Chevy. I don’t think the Reaper will compare to the Ford raptor and especially not to the Ford Shelby Raptor at all. But i guess time will tell when Ford and Chevy go head to head with them, i cant wait for that day!

  42. I love the fact that everyone brings up the bailout and forgets to mention it has already been paid off. What about ford who has been taking bailout money for over the entire life of the company with contracts supplying vehicles. Namely ford, must be nice to have the federal reserve in your back pocket! And to all you queer ass tundra owners have some fuckin pride in your country you fuckin traitors

  43. What no one has mentioned is that the Reaper comes with 33 in tires and the Raptor comes with 35s! The Raper is also ten thousand more! Last I checked you can get a nice supercharger for that and still have more ground clearance!

  44. I’m a whatever vehicle gets me where I need to go guy. With that said I’ve owned a Ford ranger and a Chevy s10 and the Chevy had better handling and more pep. But as far as a work truck it’s Ford hands down. I put 37 60lb bags of concrete in the back of my ranger and hauled it to the job which was 45 miles away. I put half of that in the s10 and barely wanted to move. I worked in road construction for 10 years in the labors union and every general contractor out there that I’ve seen personally, all use Ford’s out in the field because no other truck on the market can handle the work load. For looks and comfort I’d pick the Chevy, but for hauling and workload I’d have to go with Ford. And dodge is for women and children.

  45. Why would you talk crap about the Avalanche? It’s not a bad truck at all, I happen to have one and it’s one of the best vehicles I’ve ever owned and many people who have owned one agree

  46. haha wow really …. I got a joke chevys run deep …. but that doesn’t mean they will always get out ….. and the brand new chevy have a magnetic bumpers so It can catch all the parts as they fall off

  47. honestly they are both nice trucks. I myself favor Chevys but over the pad few years I kinda fall between a Chevy / ford guy. Both have a lot in common but just the small things which make them both different. And I do believe thy ford is capable of producing a stronger motor. So is Chevy….. Let’s get down to the pint thy are both great off road trucks and whoever would like to argue one is better than the other needs to keep they’re mouth shut.

  48. First off, i love chevy and ford! Just with my personal expierences and others too. Chevy is just a better truck, ford looks a little fancier yea maybe. But a good ol’ country boy gets a truck based on skill. Not looks. Chevy did copy ford for the raptor, but thats what happens right? If they want to put the raptor out and make it extinct then you need something else to take over… A.K.A the reaper. The dude is just but hurt himself for saying they have to much horse power lol.

  49. Fucking accept the fucking trucks! Who gives a flying fuck?! Anyone who hates either one already bought one before looking at this and is convincing theirself that theirs is better, or just can’t afford one anyway and enjoys being a 15 year old prick. Fucking fuck I hate people

  50. Any man that gets behind the wheel of a Reaper – or any truck – and says “it has too much power for me” or “it’s too fast and/or radical for me” is a fucking pussy. The Reaper has Southern Comfort Automotive backing it. There’s no fucking way it’s uncomfortable to drive.

  51. Chevy can’t think for themselves. All they do is copy Ford’s stuff. Even their flagship Corvette can’t hold a candle to the Ford GT. Get real.

  52. Only took Chevy 5 years to come up with this, (half passed ford) I wonder when they are going to come up with a 365 HP 6cyl like ford did. Or a 365 HP v8 for that matter lolz at chevy

  53. Ford will always be way ahead of Chevy, it took Chevy 5 years to come out with a halfassed version of a raptor, and don’t forget the Shelby raptor has 600 HP. Can’t wait to see why all the reapers are going to be recalled in a few months lolz

  54. I used to think Toyotas were the best until I owned 2 of them The Last one I traded for a chevy Colorado and at 300000 miles I replaced the Colorado with a chevy SUV I will never buy a Toyota I had major problems with the first one electrical things burning out the 2nd Toyota at one year old cost me close to $400 to make it pass emissions inspection to renue the license a neighbor had a 4 year old s-10 that passed

  55. Chevy couldn’t come up with a truck that compires to the Raptor on their own so they had to wait until ford to build the best truck first and than copy it. I think chevy wanted a truck like the Raptor and couldn’t come up with one so they had to get plans from ford. I guess that’s what happens when all of you vehicles gets recalled. Chevy guys buy a Ford and you don’t have to worry about it being recalled.

  56. Chevy had to wait until Ford built the Raptor first so they could get the plans on how to build a real truck that they didn’t have worry about recalling it after they built it. Chevy drivers say Ford stands for found on road dead that’s funny Ford doesn’t have all they recalls that Chevy has. Chevy drivers buy a Ford and you won’t need to take your car in for a recall because Chevy just can’t get it right the first time. They should sat Ford stands for First on race day.

  57. hey guys, i have a suzuki and I think it will kiss ass on the reaper and the raptor. oops kick ass i meant.

  58. U cant call a chevy a piece of shit when they get a 5.7 l to put out 60 more horsepower than than fords 6.2l piece of shit. Chevy clearly knows what they are doing when it comes to engines….just sayin

  59. Here’s my take. Yes, I agree that Chevy completely copied Ford. I’m almost disappointed it took them this long. Then again, dealing with bailouts and millions of recalls probably took a lot of their time. Anyway, my serious problem with the Chevy isn’t so much that they copied Ford, but the fact that the Raptor is a completely engineered and designed off road truck. It doesn’t just have a lift and big tires. It has all different components as far as stronger A-arms, knuckles, ball joints, etc. The Chevy just got a 3 inch lift, some Fox shocks, and bigger tires. How does that compare? It’s not going to hold up if it really gets pushed hard. I have a Raptor and before you call me biased, I have had other brands before. I push things hard. Problem I have had with every lifted truck is breaking steering and suspension parts. My Raptor has 41,000 miles on it and I haven’t managed to break anything. Believe me, I have tried. As far as power goes, with headers, full exhaust from Kinney’s, an intake, and a tune, the 6.2 absolutely screams. And finally, from what I have read, the “Reaper” is built by Lingennfelter. So basically you can buy a 40K truck, send it to them, spend another 25K at least, and void all factory warranties. Or but a brand new Raptor like I did for 50K, put less than 4K into it and have a full factory warranty and no worries. That is all

  60. The Reaper in my opinion looks better, but i doubt it could hold up to what the Raptor can. I don’t see why he didn’t mention the Ram Runner. It has a better chance keeping up with the Raptor than the Reaper in my opinion.

  61. Really chevy you made that butt ugly, piece of crap, the raptor will always be better, when are you chevy fans gonna realize whatever chevy does, ford will do better

  62. Really chevy you made that butt ugly, piece of crap, the raptor will always be better, when are you chevy fans gonna realize whatever chevy does, ford will do better

  63. Okay, I can’t handle this anymore. You dumb shits are repeatedly saying you would
    Choose the Chevy for it’s “reliability” and “build quality” and here is my rebuttal. First hand experience: I’ve sold both brands of cars to make my living and I can say that 1 of 4 Chevrolet transport trucks was carrying, what we referred to as, a “dud.” As in the car needed to be sent back immediately because the quality was so horrendous we couldn’t sell it. Never once in two years did that happen at the Ford dealership. Now for global statistics: GM has recalled more vehicles than it has built in the last 5 years! I appreciate the fact that your grandpas ’84 C10 is still running strong but that doesn’t mean squat to me as far as my daily driver is concerned because that’s not even an option.

  64. The reaper isn’t copying the raptor. They’re both copying the basic setup of any decent pre-runner truck. Decals included. Sure the names are similar, but who cares? They’re both very impressive production vehicles and performance should determine which is better, not who started the trend.

  65. How can you honestly say the Reaper looks good??? It’s as ugly as most of you! Don’t be mad that chevy took 5+ years to come up with piece of garbage that a power ranger should be driving it to daycare.

  66. I’m a huge Chevy fan, and I still respect Fords. Trust me though, this new “Reaper” (which sounds just like raptor) is a pretty big copy of the Raptor. Not saying that the Reaper is bad, I just think the the world’s best brand can do better than copying a Ford.

  67. The ford and chevy fan boys need to get a room.
    Go to the Raptor forums and read about the dozens of engine/transmission/electrical/brake/rear end problems.
    The Tundra TRD PRO with a TRD Supercharger will smoke both the raper and the rupture.
    And it will last twice as long as the piece of shit chevy and fords.

    • Yea try running that tundra across the desert at 90mph and enjoy the tail lights of the raptor. It cant handle a beating like that. And as for chevy, they have it backwards. Put that extra power into the zl1 where it will compete or outrun the gt500 and put more focus into the handling and suspension in the reaper. Maybe try some king shocks and try to outdo the raptor, not copy it. For now ill stick with my raptor.

  68. All the reaper is, a copy… a sad one too… woo hoo they have more hp, only took them years to pull that out of their ass… originality… raptor… that shelby package would slaughter the wanna be

    Ford > Chevrolet

  69. Reaper is an over priced copy of the Raptor! Chevy will always be playing catch up to Ford! You can keep the Obama motors copy cat! Ford all day for me!

  70. fordss are where its at the chevy reaper is a copy of the ford raptor end of story yes there both baja trucks but chevy wanted to be original they would of been chevy just copied all the fords EX; ford ranchero-chevy elcamino

  71. How in the hell can you think that hunk of shit is better than the Raptor? It IS a direct copy from Ford, there is no comparison. I work on all brands of vehicles and i build Engines and Transmissions for a living. BY FAR any GM vehicle has had way more problems and more have been in the shop than Ford, Chrysler or Toyota or Honda for that matter.. Practically every single GM i encounter has more problems than what people come in for. Electronic issues (mainly), drivetrain issues, or has something falling off like the door handles, fenders, mirrors, etc.. GM vehicles ARE NOT test driven before they are shipped to the dealership and they are cheaply built because they had to take multiple government bailouts and have so many recalls it’s not even funny. Definiton of Junk! Sorry to burst your bubble GM fans but GM hasn’t produced quality vehicles for over 20 years, and you shouldn’t EVER think they can outperform Ford in any aspect, because most imports for fucks sake are more quality than them.

  72. The chevy nose is ugly as hell that is the only thing wrong with it. You dumb fucks don’t know shit fox shocks are the cheapest decent shocks you can get far from top of the line. The ford raptor is a good looking truck but ford motors are junk! I made my wife sell hers because of it, if you want a real truck that’s going to last you better buy a chevy. If you want the best get a duramax in it. My duramax will out run the raptor! With the exception of the 7.3 power stroke ford has not had a good motor in the 2000s!

  73. Rules: #1 Rule. If you drive a foreign truck, your opinion is not valid until you upgrade to an American vehicle
    #2 If you can not spell “Suspension”…go back to middle school, then eventually try getting a G.E.D. or
    get a job at a Cheverlot plant where your duty is to roll back odometers for any “Pre-certified Chevys”
    #3 If your vocabulary is so small that every other word is a “F” bomb…your main goal in life should be to work
    at the same Cheverlot plant as the “Spelling Champion” rolling back odometers. Since you hate everyone
    your only duty is to pick up lunch for the genius rolling back odometers.
    I would spell this out for you Chevy fans but it looks like you all are in need of higher education…Now please go back
    and work on your A, B, C’s…….one last thought Cheverlot fans….Someday you might hear of a man named, Henry FORD…..yep, He’s your DADDY

  74. Ford rapter all the way with $55000 price tag. Sorry chevy fan but 140hp not worth $20000. It just another over priced peace of shit bowtie with a $74000 price tag.

  75. Bottom line FORD is dropping racing.
    How can I support them when they run from drag racing?

    NOT FIRST ON RACE DAY if you are not in the show.

  76. ford raptor would beat chevy reaper in drag races mud bogging power performance and other love ford like chevy hate dodge.bitches

  77. the chevy reaper is so much better then the ford raptor for one the reaper is laying down more horse same suspension and better set up. like they say all good things must come to an end well the good thing just arrived and its never going to leave and for all you ford lovers found on road dead and never seen again

  78. this is ridiculous anyways. people arguing between ford and chevy on which is better and which is on the road more. Im not a fan of brand but more so functionality and vary my “brand” of vehicle yearly based on what each company puts out…… and besides, there’s more new dodges out there than fords and chevys combined fools.

  79. Did any of you read any other reviews or articles on the two trucks? Chevrolet had nothing to do with building the Reaper!!!! This was built by Southern Comfort Conversions. You know, those cheap conversion packages that you pay out the nose for!!!! This REaper cost 93,000 at my local dealer and the Raptor is straight out of the SVT shop for 48,000. Think I will take the raptor and pocket 45,000.

  80. Regardless of any performance stats or whether or not the reaper is a rip off, the fact of the matter is the reaper has one ugly, poorly after-the-fact retrofitted looking grille. It really looks like way too little of effort was put into it. It just looks like a lazy design tweek they decided to incorporate at the last possible minute. Part of it goes over the headlight in the corner. Not impressed by that.

    Otherwise preference dictates. The reaper could be made of paper mache and the raptors given away for free and Chevy fans will still buy the reaper, and vice versa with the raptor. The only thing keeping the big 3 alive is preference. Foreign brands just as or more capable of making an equal or better truck, I’d personally prefer a ford though I’ll get more value out of a Tundra. It’s all in personal preference.

  81. Every chevy didnt get a capital first because every chevy cost a lot of fords and dodges gas to tow it.

    Seriously though, kid syndrome apart. You can put a 500 hp in a box that ain’t been sepc’d and call it a special edition.

    Ford put lots into construction, function and power. Chevy jumped into competition and threw power at a decent base. Do you honestly think Ford couldnt throw the same power? Bitch please, at least there was thought and seasoning behind the Ford design.

  82. just because of more power don’t mean nothing it could go better in sand and pull u to the bottom of the mud hole and find the bottom for you to gain traction and get out and second the ford raptor sucks its (411hp) 6.2 motor is junk I mean come on the 5.7 chevy motor is pushing (475hp) in my opinion when they square off the chevy will get the victory and shut all them ford lovers up once and for all and there is no way a ford truck had 575hp from the factory or you would always be working on the junk of a ford motor CHEVY ROCKS FORD SUCKS

  83. all u guys are stupid for arguring about trucks everybody has there own opoion on wat they like and chevy is still better hate to break it
