The New Ford Ranger Raptor is the toughest, highest performing version of Ford’s best pick-up. Is the ultimate adventure pick-up. And in this exclusive launch video it takes on challenging terrain, bikers, ATVs, explosions and much more.
The commanding presence delivered by the Ranger Raptor’s imposing scale and distinctive styling is supported by a unique Ford Performance chassis optimised for high-speed off-road driving and go-anywhere capability.
The Raptor’s suspension has been specifically engineered and tuned to tackle formidable terrain at high-speed whilst remaining in complete control and comfort. Fox Racing Shox shock absorbers with Position Sensitive Damping provide the damping forces necessary for extreme driving situations.
The new Ranger Raptor’s aggressive design is driven by performance and functionality. Ford engineers extensively tested the new powerful Bi-turbo 2.0-litre EcoBlue and 10 speed automatic powertrain to prove durability in the most demanding conditions. And Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission, that is shared with the F-150 Raptor, has been created using high-strength steel, aluminium alloys and composites to optimise durability and weight. There are also driver assistance and safety technologies that boost confidence for drivers facing unknown off-road challenges or tough working environments.
A series of sophisticated technologies are designed to make the new Ranger Raptor comfortable and convenient on- or off-road. These include Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system. which is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™. It also incorporates SYNC AppLink for voice-activation of a range of smartphone apps. The system’s central 8-inch colour touchscreen can be operated with pinch and swipe gestures, and features sat-nav technology that comes into its own when off-roading in remote locations, even offering a ‘breadcrumb’ feature to leave a trail when exploring unchartered areas.
Developed for the true enthusiast off-roader, the first-ever Ranger Raptor will go on sale to thrill-seeking drivers in Europe in mid-2019.
