Ford launched the new-generation Ranger for international markets on the finish of final 12 months. It previewed a truck that ought to – hopefully – make its option to our shores later this 12 months. Whereas the traditional Ranger might be a high quality truck, one factor lovers have been clamoring for is a Raptor model. Properly, from this newest teaser launched by Ford of Europe, the Ranger Raptor is on its manner for the remainder of the world and hopefully us as properly.
The quick video says the Ranger Raptor is ready to be unveiled on February 22. It might be coated in camouflage, however it certain appears as if there are some large upgrades over the usual Ranger. Consistent with Raptor custom, the truck’s suspension appears to have been given some substantial – and beefy – upgrades.
The largest proof of this? Heaps and many sweet-ass high-speed jumps.
The subsequent-gen Ranger Raptor is anticipated to have the identical 3.0-liter 400 HP twin-turbo V6 that may be discovered within the upcoming Bronco Raptor. That’s fairly the improve over the present Euro-market Ranger Raptors 2.0-liter diesel. There’s additional proof of six cylinders of fury beneath the hood based mostly on a really distinguished V6 soundtrack.
Ford describes the video as a “sneak peek at a number of the brutal testing it confronted to earn the Raptor badge.” Hopefully it is going to really lead as much as the Raptor title, thought I’ve little doubt that it’ll.
Ford has nonetheless not confirmed the Ranger Raptor for the U.S. market, however based mostly on the demand for the F-150 Raptor and Bronco Raptor, it might be a great resolution if Ford enjoys making that cash.
Talking of cash, there’s no phrase on what a Ranger Raptor would find yourself costing – although a protected guess might be across the similar value of the Bronco Raptor. Nonetheless, it’ll be a small miracle in the event you can choose these up for MSRP.
