FORD’S FIRST-EVER RANGER RAPTOR
Ford’s new Ranger Raptor—as of our deadline for this report, available only for Asia Pacific buyers—features a 2.0L compound-turbocharged diesel engine making 210 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, 10-speed automatic transmission, race-ready coilover rear suspension with Watt’s linkage, Fox Factory shocks, and looks that are similar to its big brother, the wide-and-tall F-150 Raptor. The rear bumper sports an integrated tow bar, while the front end has special foglights and functional ducts. The pickup’s interior continues the performance theme, including off-road seats. The truck is being built at Ford
Thailand Manufacturing, and while we’re keeping the faith that the U.S. will receive the Ranger Raptor, will it also gain a diesel version? Everyone is cautiously optimistic about that happening.
