The following 2020 Ford Ranger Raptor using the highly anticipated Raptor off-road package deal. It’s donning complete camouflage, and It has beefy off-road tires and Raptor-style painted rims. This prototype is usually seating a little larger from the floor than several of the other Ranger prototypes that now we have viewed.
For many a long time, Ford had the off-road pickup current market virtually cornered. Its SVT Raptor (and F-150 Raptor successor) present loads of Trophy Truck functionality and swagger, and Ford sells an abundance of them to persons searching for the most powerful off-roader their money should buy. Its only competitors for years was the rock-crawling 2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon, but now, 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 making the competition getting hotter between the two of those people full-size pickups by giving hundreds of functionality in all terrains, from boulder-strewn mountain trails to vast open up dessert.
Nevertheless, Ford is not about to take Chevy’s assault lying down, as these spy photographs with the Ranger “Raptor” suggest. Depending on Ford’s future midsize pickup, the Ranger Raptor has aggressive, wider fender flares to cover its amplified observe and broader stance, using on what shows up to become taller tires than the 31s accessible over the Colorado ZR2.
2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Specs
When you squint, you can nearly make out a long-travel A-arm suspension up front, while for the rear, your guesses are pretty much as good as ours. Because Detroit loves to participate in the one-up activity, hope better suspension vacation in comparison to the Chevy Colorado ZR2 8.6 inches front/10.0 inches rear, and we anticipate a minimum of 9.0 inches of ground clearance from 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor.
A single style and design attribute are not effortlessly hidden by camouflage are that this takes a look at mule’s engine note, which the photographer reported sounded like the facility Stroke three.2L turbodiesel I-5 located in the Ford Transit van. Placing out 185 horsepower and 350 lb-ft, the compact Ability Stroke engine would provide the Ranger an important choice to the Colorado ZR2’s offered 2.8L Duramax I-4 (rated at 181 hp and 369 lb-ft).
Hopefully, the modest Raptor will likely give certainly one of Ford’s EcoBoost engines, perhaps the 325hp, 400-lb-ft 2.7L V-6. That motor, which delivers acceptable effectiveness while in the larger sized Ford F-150, would give a Ranger-sized truck magnificent general performance, clobbering the ZR2’s common three.6L V-6 into your floor concerning greatest torque.
Thought to observe the common Ranger pickup to the sector by about a year, we hope the Raptor variant to reach for your 2020 model year, sharing showroom area with both 2020 Ford Ranger Raptor and its midsize SUV sibling, 2019 Ford Bronco. Via the way, will that vehicle have a hardcore off-road variant too? The thought of 3 Raptorized autos in Ford’s stable is enough to stimulate anyone’s appetite.
