Introducing the Ford Ranger Raptor
The 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 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 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 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 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 Ranger Raptor is a vehicle with both brains and brawn.
As a uniquely engineered model with no direct competitor, the Ranger Raptor is a vehicle designed unlike any other. Various features have been added to make it even better than the standard Ford Ranger, such as the Bi-Xenon lights and a range of new exterior colours including Conquer Grey and Ford Performance Blue.
Front bumper 'Air Curtains' improve aerodynamics and the suspension control arms are made of aluminium to reduce weight, improve appearance and improve the suspension travel. The design of the brakes is improved over the Ranger too, with larger vented discs providing vastly improved stopping ability.
The unique design features continue on the inside with 'technical suede' on the seats for better grip and cleanability than standard suede, while high seat bolsters provide greater lateral support.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you claim VAT back on a Ranger Raptor?
Unfortunately VAT cannot be claimed back on a Raptor - this is because the payload is under 1,000kg. As a result, the Benefit in Kind (BIK) is at the higher rate compared to the traditional Ranger.
What about the VED?
The Ford Ranger Raptor has been approved to be used a commerical vehicle, so therefore it has to be registered as a commerical vehicle. As a result, the Raptor is subject to the CV VED band.
