The Ranger has always been Blue Oval’s mid-size truck. And in recent years, this pickup was not the most popular on the market. Now, this drop in sales doesn’t necessarily mean the Ranger is a bad truck. The biggest problem may be that this is an old model. Here in the US, we’re a generation behind what places like Europe get. But it looks like Ford will reinvigorate the Ranger with Raptor garnish.
Is the Ford Ranger Raptor coming to the US?
Ford has confirmed that the Ranger Raptor will be coming to the United States. This means that consumers will have access to another mid-size truck with off-road chops. It has long been available in other markets, not just the United States. So it’s exciting that Ford is making this move.
, the Ford Ranger Raptor is likely to be priced around $45,000. And for most people looking for this type of truck, it might actually be possible.
This midsize truck will compete directly with models like the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro. It will be interesting to see how it stacks up against those more established pickups. But many truck drivers prefer Blue Oval to other brands.
The Ranger Raptor will take things to the next level
The Ford Ranger already has some off-road packages. But it will definitely kick things up a notch. We expected it to get flared fenders, big tires, and some extra ground clearance.
Raptor is a very important brand for Ford. So, it makes sense that she would want this truck to be taken seriously. It will join the Bronco Raptor and F-150 Raptor models upon launch.
It will come with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine. The numbers are expected to be 392 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. These numbers are much stronger than what the Ford Ranger currently offers.
It should also be noted that this mid-size truck will feature front and rear locking differentials. Demonstrate commitment to going the road of least traffic.
When will this off-road truck arrive?
It is expected to arrive in the 2024 model year. This is when Ford intends to bring the next generation Ranger to the United States. It is possible that the details of this truck will change once it is launched by Ford. For example, it can gain more or less strength.
But really, we won’t know until Ford officially reveals it. Right now, many people are speculating about what exactly the Ranger Raptor will be. But it will undoubtedly be a major upgrade for the Ranger, and it will likely be a popular car.
