Ranger Rap­tor pric­ing

New Zealand Company Vehicle - - CONTENTS -

Ten speed trans­mis­sion, biturbo 2.0-litre diesel en­gine, Fox sus­pen­sion and all: the new Rap­tor ver­sion of Ford’s block­buster Range util­ity will cost $84,990 off the show­room floor. This may be Ford New Zealand’s most ‘off-road­able’ ve­hi­cle yet. Its 10-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion has mag­ne­sium pad­dle shifters. It di­rects drive through a unique six-mode Ter­rain Man­age­ment Sys­tem (TMS), which in­cludes low and high range four-wheel drive and a lock­ing rear-dif­fer­en­tial. The long travel sus­pen­sion fea­tures spe­cially-tuned and valved Fox Shox, alu­minium up­per and lower con­trol arms, heavy duty skid-plates and un­der­body pro­tec­tion. Wa­ter wad­ing ca­pa­bil­ity is in­creased to an im­pres­sive 850mm. Ford New Zealand’s off-road ver­sion of the Ranger was re­vealed in Thai­land in Fe­bru­ary and goes on sale here this month at a cool $15,350 pre­mium over the cur­rent flag­ship of the Ranger line-up, the Wild­trak.
