Although there is still no main news concerning a Ranger Raptor for the U.S., we think Ford would certainly not be evaluating it below unless the business assumed it made sense. Our spy photographers recently captured one testing on the streets in Dearborn, Mich., throughout a springtime snowstorm, providing support to that presumption.
No doubt the Ford Ranger Raptor will certainly expand into worldwide markets it’s never called the mid-size off-roader gains popularity in Australia, South America, and Africa. If it debuts right here in the U.S., we don’t think it will take longer for it to influence sales of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 as well as Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, its two top-tier direct competitors. The examination Raptor seen in these photos did not have camouflage, displaying its good looks. Additionally, we assumed you may additionally wish to see what the WildTrak bundle (rather prominent in Australia) will look like, as our spy shooters captured it running around uncamo ‘d too (see lower photos). Here’s just what they sent out concerning the Raptor:
Ford’s tested 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine and also 10-speed automatic transmission give a solid power plant and drivetrain. The F-150 will certainly present a diesel choice in 2019, but that will not be available on the Ranger. The Ranger will be readily available in a slew of trims and also bundles to fit the spending plans and also requirements of a range of buyers. These alternatives include the entry-level XL, midlevel XLT, and also top-level Lariat series with offered Chrome as well as Sport appearance and also FX Off-Road packages, and in SuperCab or SuperCrew taxicab setups. Although the FX4 Ranger will be a capable off-road car, Ford has yet to announce a Raptor variation of the Ranger– which, if introduced, ought to complete well with the ZR2 Chevy Colorado.
