One look at the Ranger Raptor and you know this is no ordinary truck. From the unique front grille, front and rear bumpers, front bash plate, wider front and rear guards, high-spec running boards, alloy wheels and off-road tyres, the Ranger Raptor is designed and engineered from the ground up to meet strict Ford Performance DNA requirements.
Much like a Motorcross bike, Ranger Raptor’s powertrain was chosen to deliver ultimate responsiveness with minimum weight. Ford’s latest technology 2.0L BiTurbo diesel engine generates 157kW of power and 500Nm of torque across a wide rev range by utilising a team of high and low-pressure turbos, the turbines of which can reliably spin at 240,000rpm by utilising high-tech Inconel, an alloy used in rocket engines.
Shared with the world-renowned 2018 F-150 Raptor and Mustang GT, Ford Ranger Raptor’s 10-speed automatic is crafted from high-strength steel, aluminium alloys and composites to optimise durability and weight. Specially designed for responsiveness and efficiency, this state-of-the-art transmission features a “Live in Drive” function, meaning the Ranger Raptor’s magnesium paddle shifters are always ready for instant manual gear changes.
Terrain Management System
Ranger Raptor’s Terrain Management System (TMS) allows you to excel in a variety of terrains, not just the desert. With just the push of a button on the unique leather steering wheel, drivers can switch between six different modes: Normal, Sport, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Sand, Rock and last but definitely not least, the off road racing inspired Baja mode!
The Ranger Raptor isn’t just tough, it’s also incredibly smart, with a host of standard features and Driver Assist Technologies (DATs) like SYNC® 3 voice activation system, Satellite Navigation, active and passive safety features like Electronic Stability Control (ESC),Trailer Sway Control (TSC), Hill Start Assist (HSA), Hill Descent Control (HDC), Load Adaptive Control (LAC) , Lane Departure Warning (LDW) with Lane Keep Assist (LKA) and Roll Over Mitigation (ROM).
