New Ford Ranger Raptor Teased, It’s Coming Next Year

Ford has released the first details about the upcoming Ranger Raptor.

Set to be launched next year in the Asia-Pacific region, the truck promises to build on the success of the popular F-150 Raptor.

The teaser images don’t reveal much but Ford says the Ranger Raptor will have a “head-turning exterior” that exudes toughness and capability. The automaker also said the model will have “off-road performance never before seen in the mid-size pickup truck segment.”

That’s not much go to on but the truck will be based on the double cab variant and feature a revised grille that mimics the F-150 Raptor. The truck also features a returned suspension, side steps, and alloy wheels with off-road tires.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but speculation suggests the model could come with either a twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 or an upgraded 3.2-liter five-cylinder turbo-diesel.

Ford Asia Pacific vice president of product development, Trevor Worthington, said “[The] Ford Ranger Raptor will offer Ranger fans a fantastic opportunity to own an authentic off-road performance version of their favorite truck for the first time.”

His sentiments were echoed by Ford Performance chief engineer Jamal Hameedi who stated “Combining the Raptor’s advanced off-road capabilities with the versatility of the Ranger is a significant accomplishment for Ford’s world-class engineering and design teams.”

    double cab boo, means short bed means no motos. Then again 15 mpg is a no go any way so maybe ford will come out with a regular version access cab with standard bed that gets better mpg than a 6cyl tacoma ie low 20s, a high 20s 4 cylinder turbo might work

    Ford would be insane not to bring the Ranger Raptor to America..

    This is cool!! Raptor ability in a much more usably sized package! I’d love one of these at around $40k as a direct competitor to the new ZR2 Colorado.

    Bring both models: twin turbo v6 and big torque diesel to the states.
