The Ford Ranger Raptor has just surfaced in Bangkok, Thailand, in production form, and while the truck you see here, in Lightning Blue, is only for the Thai and Pacific markets, it’s likely that the United States will have a crack at Ford’s rock-hopping, dune-flogging four-by-four at a later date.
Ford Ranger Raptor Revealed, and It’s (Probably) Coming to the U.S.!
Months before Ford unveiled the U.S.-spec 2019 Ranger in January, we knew Dearborn had directed the Ford Performance division to build a baby Raptor. That’s exactly what the Ranger Raptor looks like, minus the F-150 version’s amber marker lights on the satin-gray grille. Flared fenders, F-O-R-D in chunky uppercase letters, silver-painted underbody shields, and a step-in height that threatens to rip inseams are the most obvious touches. Under the hood is an all-new twin-turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel inline-four, which Ford likely won’t try to certify back home. It’s more potent than the expat Ranger’s 3.2-liter turbo-diesel inline-five, with 211 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Expect any U.S. model of the little Raptor to be powered by Ford’s 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6, with outputs similar to the 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft that the engine makes in the 2019 Edge ST. Like the F-150 Raptor, the rowdiest Ranger uses a 10-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel drive, and six driving modes (including a Baja setting that relaxes the traction control for ripping across the desert)
The F-150 Raptor boasts Fox Racing Shox internal-bypass dampers, and the Ranger Raptor follows suit. Ford has not specified wheel travel, but since the ability to execute sweet jumps is a Raptor hallmark, expect it to be generous. A Watt’s linkage helps control the live rear axle’s lateral motion, while more high-strength steel and integrated tow bars are baked into the Ranger’s frame.
