What It Is: Proof that Ford will action the Ranger Raptor in left-hand-drive markets. The off-road-ready auto was formally apparent beforehand this year in Thailand as a right-hand-drive model, adumbrative of the barter Ford will advertise in Asia-Pacific markets. Nevertheless, it’s accepted that the Ranger Raptor will be awash in a cardinal of added markets, including the U.S., that charge the caster on the added side. This is our best attending yet at that truck. Unsurprisingly, the left-hand-drive Ranger Raptor mirrors that of its right-hand-drive twin. Flared fenders, abounding arena clearance, beefy tires, and a audible F-150 Raptor–style grille accord the barter an off-road-ready actualization that matches its go-anywhere persona.
Why It Matters: Between the action surrounding the acknowledgment of the Ford Ranger to the U.S. bazaar and the berserk fan abject for the F-150 Raptor, the Ranger Raptor is abiding to allure its fair allotment of attention. Accustomed today’s truck-loving buyers, we doubtable Ford will accept no agitation affective every Ranger Raptor it builds. Additionally, the archetypal is abiding to drive association into Ford showrooms and abetment in the sales of non-Raptorized Rangers.
Platform: The Ranger Raptor will allotment its underpinnings with the accepted Ranger. However, Ford will accomplish countless improvements to the barter to ensure its off-road prowess. A long-travel abeyance bureaucracy with Fox internal-bypass dampers is a given, as are a added clue and added arena clearance.
Powertrain: While Asia-Pacific Ranger Raptors will be motivated by a diesel-drinking twin-turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four with 200 horsepower-which seems to be the agent in the barter featured here-the U.S.-spec Ranger Raptor is accepted to canal the agent for a one of Ford’s gasoline V-6 engines. We’d put our money on the Blue Oval’s twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6 to acquisition its way beneath the truck’s hood. The agent makes 325 horses in the bigger F-150 and 335 in the 2019 Edge ST, and we apprehend it to put up agnate numbers in the Ranger Raptor.
Competition: Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro.
Estimated Arrival and Price: Plan on spending at atomic $45,000 for the Ranger Raptor back it goes on auction ancient in 2020 as a 2021 model.
