This is a funny quote.

"Reason one for choosing the Rebel over the Raptor is that we have no plans to cross Death Valley, run the Rubicon, or rock climb in Moab. So why pay for capabilities we’re not going to use?"
That is a good point though. I think some people want the capability just to have it, but often time they will never take the vehicle into a situation where they actually get to use those capabilities.

It's also not always about using a vehicle built for a specific thing and using for that. What it was built for helps to define what it is and attracts different types of buyers among other reasons someone would want said truck.

So the capabilities and purpose of the vehicle is more to attract a certain kind of buyer, but the buyer may not actually use the truck for what it is intended for? I suppose that is true, but I'm not sure if customers who buy the truck and then don't end up using it for its purpose are really making a wise buying decision. Seems more a matter of image in that circumstance.

Because the Ford Raptor will be at the dealership for half it's life depending on which year it's from. I've read a lot of complaints and problems with the Raptors. Sure the Rebel is not perfect but at least you can still drive it around.
