Proof that Ford will certainly offer the 2021 Ford Ranger Raptor in left-hand-drive markets. The off-road-ready pick-up was formally unveiled previously this year in Thailand as a right-hand-drive model, rep of the vehicle Ford will sell in Asia-Pacific markets.
2021 Ford Ranger Redesign
However, it’s anticipated that the Ranger Raptor will certainly be sold in a number of other markets, consisting of the United States, that require the wheel beyond. This is our best appearance yet at that truck. Unsurprisingly, the left-hand-drive Ranger Raptor mirrors that of its right-hand-drive twin. Flared fenders, adequate ground clearance, chunky tires, and a distinct F-150 Raptor– style grille give the vehicle an off-road-ready appearance that matches its go-anywhere persona.
Between the enjoyment surrounding the return of the Ford Ranger to the U.S. market and the wild follower base for the F-150 Raptor, the Ranger Raptor makes sure to attract its reasonable share of attention. Given today’s truck-loving purchasers, we presume Ford will have no trouble relocating every Ranger Raptor it builds. Additionally, the design makes certain to drive people right into Ford display rooms and aid in the sales of non-Raptorized Rangers.
The Ranger Raptor will certainly share its underpinnings with the basic Ranger. Nonetheless, Ford will make myriad enhancements to the vehicle to ensure its off-road expertise. A long-travel suspension arrangement with Fox internal-bypass dampers is an offered, as are a broader track and extra ground clearance.
While Asia-Pacific Ranger Raptors will be inspired by a diesel-drinking twin-turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four with 200 horse power– which seems to be the engine in the vehicle featured right here– the U.S.-spec Ranger Raptor is expected to ditch the diesel for an among Ford’s gasoline V-6 engines. We ‘d place our cash on the Blue Oval’s twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6 to find its way under the vehicle’s hood. The engine makes 325 horses in the bigger F-150 and 335 in the 2019 Edge ST, and we expect it to set up comparable numbers in the Ranger Raptor.
