Oh no, secret photos of the new Ranger Raptor have been leaked from the factory. Unknown source took pictures from outside and inside! Now the internet has gone wild with speculations. Find out what to expect with the 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor.
Is the 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor coming to America?
Yes, 2024 is coming to America. In fact, according to All Terrain Nation, some models are already here. Someone from the Ford factory has shared multiple photos of the production Ranger Raptor.
It seems out of place on the assembly line. He’s in front of tons of Ford Broncos. This may mean that the assembly plant is not ready to switch between manufacturing the outgoing Ranger model to the new one.
What can you expect with the 2024 Ranger Raptor
From what we can see, the 2024 is equipped with a lift suspension and stripped-down all-terrain tires for off-roading. It also has a dual exhaust which looks really cool.
If it’s like a Ford Bronco Raptor, it might have a few different exhaust settings, like Quiet mode and Sport mode.
The Bronco Raptor looks identical to the model we’ve seen in other countries. It may be a pre-production model that looks a little different from the US version.
It pops with hints of orange trim and Raptor badging. Also, the rear brake light has been moved from the tailgate to the cab. It sits above a small electrically powered window.
The interior is identical to other Raptor models with black upholstery and red stitching. You can even see a red stripe on the steering wheel. The updated 12.1-inch infotainment screen looks fresh and modern.
The Ford Ranger Raptor can be powered by the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 featured in European models that makes 392 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. But it can also have 418 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque, like the Bronco Raptor.
Additionally, the Ford Ranger Raptor can borrow suspension components from the Bronco Raptor, such as Fox live valving.
How much does a 2024 Ranger Raptor cost?
The official 2024 cost hasn’t been released, but it’s safe to expect a higher price. The regular 2024 Ranger is expected to start at around $30,000, while the Wildtrak model could increase the cost to $40,000.
That leaves room for the Ford Ranger Raptor to start around $50,000. The 2023 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro currently offers its toughest competition, and starts at $47,185. But the TRD Pro doesn’t provide more engine power.
We should learn more once we get closer to production. More leaks and teasers could emerge to draw attention to the official debut.
