Developed by Ford Performance for the true enthusiast off-roader, the first-ever Ranger Raptor is powered by a Bi-turbo version of Ford’s 2.0‑litre EcoBlue diesel engine that delivers 213 PS and 500 Nm of torque; and Ford’s new 10-speed automatic gearbox.
The commanding presence delivered by the ultimate Ranger’s imposing dimensions and extreme styling is supported by a unique Ford Performance chassis optimised for high-speed off-road driving and go-anywhere capability.
Built to withstand high-impact off-road events, Ranger Raptor’s unique, super-strong reinforced chassis frame uses high-strength, low-alloy steels to endure the punishment delivered by off-road racing.
Raptor’s race-bred suspension has been specifically crafted to tackle fearsome terrain at high-speed while remaining in complete control and comfort, using a 150 mm wider track and 51 mm taller ride height compared with the Ranger XLT.
FOX shock absorbers with Position Sensitive Damping provide higher damping forces at extremes and lower damping forces in more moderate conditions for a smoother ride on-road.
All-terrain BF Goodrich 285/70 R17 tyres have been specially developed for the Ranger Raptor. The 33-inch (838 mm) by 11-inch (285 mm) tyres offer a tough sidewall to take on the most formidable environments with confidence, and an aggressive off-road tread pattern that provides an iron grip in wet, mud, sand and snow conditions.
Ranger Raptor also features unique underbody protection to deflect off-road obstacles. The new bash plate is made from 2.3 mm thickness high-strength steel – more than 60 per cent thicker than the standard bash plate – in addition to the Ranger’s standard engine and transfer case under-shields.
