Feature: from Ranger to Raptor
THIS IS WHAT IT TAKES TO TURN A PRODUCTION BAKKIE INTO A PUKKA OFF-ROAD RACER
IT may come with a licence disc and number plates, and be available from your local Ford dealership early next year, but this is as close to a sophisticated off-road racer as a production vehicle can get. You may have read my driving impression of the Ford Ranger Raptor in the Australian Outback last month. In this feature, we reveal how Ford’s engineers managed to change a standard Ranger into a Bushveld cruise missile … that can still comfortably ferry the kids to school.
