The next-generation Ford Ranger Raptor has made its global debut, taking the mid-size pickup to new levels of performance both on and off-road. Power will come from a twin-turbo 3.0L EcoBoost V6 that produces 392 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque while a 2.0L bi-turbo diesel will also be available in select markets. Enhancing the truck's performance is an anti-lag system that keeps the turbos spinning for up to three seconds when your foot is off the gas. This is paired to a ten-speed automatic transmission that is designed with specific tuning for optimal performance on varying terrain.
The truck has an array of hardware upgrades that include a chassis that's specific to the Ranger Raptor, a redesigned suspension with Ford Performance-developed FOX Live Valve dampers and FOX 2.5" Live Valve Internal Bypass shock absorbers, FOX Bottom-Out Control, a front bash plate, and twin rated tow hooks. Additional features include an advanced permanent four-wheel drive system with an electronically controlled on-demand two-speed transfer case, and a series of exterior enhancements that bring the design in line with its larger sibling, the F-150.
The next-gen Ranger Raptor will be available in the US in 2023.
