Galpin Auto Sports Builds A Ranger Raptor Lookalike For The U.S.

The United States isn’t going to receive a Ranger Raptor anytime soon – at least not from Ford. Galpin Auto Sports, however, has just revealed its Raptor-inspired upgrade package for the compact pickup.

The vehicle is dubbed the Ranger X and looks quite similar to the Raptor currently on sale in other markets. Exterior modifications are comprehensive and start off with front and rear wheel fender flares from Ford Performance. Galpin Auto Sports, which isn’t just a tuner but is also a Ford dealership, has also fitted a set of custom 17-inch black alloy wheels and shod them in 285/70 Pro Comp A/T off-road tires, as well as a Pro Comp leveling kit that increases the ride height.

To ensure the pumped-up truck looks the part, Galpin Auto Sports has also installed custom front and rear bumpers, with the former featuring an LED light bar. There are also graphics inspired by those of the real Ranger Raptor on the rear quarter panels.

The Ranger X package costs $13,950 in addition to the price tag of a regular Ranger.

While the U.S. market appears unlikely to receive the current Ranger Raptor, reports assert that Ford engineers are working on the next-generation Ranger and that this time it will be sold in Raptor configuration in North America, too. Details about the new Ranger are limited, but it could launch in 2022, with the new Raptor following shortly thereafter.
