Introducing the next-generation Ford Ranger Raptor
The next-generation Ford Ranger Raptor is a pick-up designed for excellent off-road performance. A uniquely-engineered model with no direct competitor, it's part of the Ford Performance range, alongside the Focus ST and Mustang models.
The next-generation Raptor has been given a variety of new features to enhance appeal even further. With a strong build quality perfectly suited to off-road driving, intelligent technology and a striking design, the next-generation Ranger Raptor is the ideal vehicle for an adventurous lifestyle.
There are a variety of driving modes, gadgets and engine sounds, meaning performance and off-road enthusiasts are spoilt for choice.
Influenced heavily by desert racers and those who love to go off the beaten track, the next-generation Ranger Raptor offers an advanced full-time four-wheel drive system for the first time. The system works in tandem with front and rear locking differentials to give the pinnacle in off-road performance.
There are a variety of driving modes to choose from dependent upon which surface you're tackling. On-road, you'll be able to choose between three self-explanatory driving modes (Normal, Sport, Slippery), whilst four off-road options include 'Rock crawl', 'Sand', 'Mud and Ruts' and a maximum attack 'Baja' mode.
Other features include FOX® Bottom-Out Control, which provides peak damping force and control, as well as Trail Control™; a system that's essentially cruise control for off-roading, allowing the driver to focus on navigating the tricky terrain.
Technology and Towing
Featuring a host of equipment, the next-generation Ranger Raptor gets a complete overhaul inside the cabin. New, comfortable, fighter jet-inspired leather sports seats are embellished with the iconic Raptor logo.
Occupants will also be able to enjoy the latest in digital tech in the form of a 12.4-inch digital cluster and a 12.0-inch touchscreen SYNC 4A® infotainment system. With features such as Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and a 10-speaker B&O® sound system also available, time spent in the next-generation Ranger Raptor is as entertaining as it gets.
There are twin rated tow hooks at the front and rear, providing easy access in tough conditions. With a gross payload of over 600kg, plus all the clever features above, the next-generation Ranger Raptor is a vehicle with both brains and brawn.
As a uniquely-engineered model with no direct competitor, the next-generation Ranger Raptor is a vehicle designed unlike any other. Various features have been added to make the next-generation Ranger Raptor even better such as flared wheel arches, sharp C-clamp LED matrix headlights and an integrated step pad and towbar that don't impact departure angle.
Powering the next-generation Ranger Raptor is the latest 3.0-litre EcoBoost V6 petrol engine that's been cleverly tuned by Ford Performance to produce an eye-watering 284bhp and 362lb ft of torque. Performance is also enhanced by a cutting-edge anti-lag system that was first seen on the Ford GT, and a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
If you somehow aren't thrilled enough the next-generation Range Raptor also comes with multiple exhaust profiles (Quiet, Normal, Sport, Baja) allowing the driver to find a soundtrack that suits their preference.
A tamer 2.0-litre EcoBlue bi-turbo diesel powertrain will also be available from 2023.
