Ford Ranger Raptor Is ‘Ready For Anything’ In New Teaser

Ford has announced the debut of the Ranger Raptor for later this year in an official video.

Released by Ford Thailand, the short clip shows the ‘mini F-150 Raptor‘ on an off-road course, with a few interesting captions such as “ready for sand”, “ready for mud”, and “ready for hills”, among others, which probably refer to some special driving modes.

The fact that it was posted by the brand’s Thai arm backs up a previous report saying that the new Ford Ranger Raptor will be unveiled in Bangkok, on February 7, prior to its initial launch in the Asia Pacific region and before becoming available in other markets, including the United States.

Underpinned by Ford’s T6 ladder chassis, which will be used by the upcoming Bronco as well, the Ford Ranger Raptor is said to be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine. The output remains unknown for now, but it could churn out more than the 197hp offered by the 3.2-liter diesel used in the regular models.

However, the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost unit, found in the larger F-150 Raptor, making 450hp and 510lb-ft (691Nm) of torque, remains a possibility in a slightly detuned state.

The 10-speed automatic gearbox, co-developed by Ford with General Motors, is expected to channel the output to the four-wheel drive system.

    Might be the only raptor I would buy given the issues Ford is having with the 2.3 in the RS.

    • europeon

      The issues with the RS engine have been fixed. It was a part number mismatch:- they used the Mustang gasket instead of using the specific RS one, which lead to failure.

    Forget this and give me a new Lincoln Mark LT, but based off the fourth-generation Navigator instead of the F-150. Now would be a great time after being awarded Truck of the Year at this year’s NAIAS. First Lincoln to have been given an award at NAIAS as well as the first American-built luxury SUV in this segment to win in this category.

    “Ready for anything” except for you to shift your own gears…

    Hey Ford, want to sell 15-20% (based on Jeep Wrangler sales) more Rangers, Raptors and Broncos? Offer a manual.

    And I am ready to get a ford! tbh I probably wont take it off road(at first) but it’ll definitely be cool to have a mini raptor.. I always see clean Raptors at malls and grocery stores and I wonder how many of them actually go off roading.
