The long-awaited Ford Ranger Raptor is coming to the United States. The truck will hit the European market first later this year.
The Ranger Raptor comes with a twin-turbo 3.0-litre EcoBoost V6. It has four electronically-controlled exhausted modes to fit your driving scenario. There are seven selectable drive modes. Much like its Bronco counterpart, modes include Quiet, Normal, Sport and Baja.
The Ranger Raptor comes with FOX 2.5-inch live valve internal bypass shock absorbers. The chassis was designed specifically for off-roading. The Raptor specific mounts and reinforcements on the truck include the C-pllar, load box and spare wheel as well as frames for the jounce bumper, shock tower and shock bracket.
“We’ve really focused on delivering a genuine performance truck with the Next-Gen Ranger Raptor,” said Dave Burn, Ford Performance chief programme engineer for Ranger Raptor. “It’s significantly faster, looks incredible, is packed with new features, and it’s the toughest Ranger we’ve ever made.”
President and CEO of Ford Motor Company Jim Farley has said the Ranger Raptor will be in the United States next year. Pricing has not yet been announced.
