  • 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Makes Brief Online Debut Looking Mean and Sexy

Well, the wait is over and the Ranger Raptor has finally been revealed in full. "The Ford Performance team is excited to extend the Raptor name from our flagship off-road performance F-150 to Ranger".

Speaking in Thailand today, Jamal Hameedi, chief engineer, Ford Performance said, "We are so excited and proud to unleash this vehicle to the public, driving it really makes you feel like a hero".

Unveiled in Thailand (where the rest of the world's Raptors outside the U.S. are built), the new baby Raptor has borrowed plenty of the angry, bloated bodywork and technology from its bigger brother to be an absolute beast on the rough stuff. It's coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission like that found in its big brother, the F-150 Raptor, giving it plenty of forward drive ratios to keep the engine within its power band.

The front bumper also includes new LED fog lamps with functional air-curtain ducts, which help to reduce air resistance of the body.

As the vehicle is meant to go a very long way off the beaten track, the front bumpers are made of composite materials that are better able to withstand the expected dents and dings. Those bumpers have to be flared so that they can accommodate the larger wheels, which are mounted on long-travel suspension. The side steps are better described as rock sliders and are constructed from aluminium alloy die-cast. It's 1873mm tall, 2180mm wide and 5398mm long.

"Ground clearance is increased to 283 mm (11.14 inches), while the approach angle of 32.5 degrees, ramp over angle of 24 degrees, and departure angle of 24 degrees as a package are superior to anything seen before", Ford said in a news release.

At the rear, a modified rear bumper comes with an integrated tow bar and two recovery hooks rated at 3.8 tonnes.

Providing an abundance of space, the 1560mm x 1743mm tray has been designed with the weekend explorer in mind, while the 2,500kg towing capacity also accounts for dirt bikes or jet-skis, as well as traditional work needs during the week. Power runs through a Ford-designed-and-built 10-speed transmission that is shared with the F-150 Raptor. There are also blue highlights and leather accents throughout the cabin, along with a new steering wheel with perforated leather grip sections and magnesium paddle shifters. Let us know below. The steering wheel is finished off with the Raptor logo debossed into the spoke bezel. Toyota has an interesting percentage of its own that helps prove the case for a Ranger Raptor. From head to toe, the brand-new Ford Ranger Raptor looks the part, thanks to a menacing, all-black grille with "FORD" stamped into the center, frame-mounted front and rear bumpers, composite fender flares, high-strength-steel bash plate, and rugged side steps created to both prevent rock spray from hitting the rear of the truck, and allow rain, sand, and mud to drain.

The Ranger Raptor rolls on vehicle-specific BFGoodrich all-terrain 285/70R17 tires.

The shocks - categorised as "Position Sensitive Damping" type - are created to cop the worst of undulating terrain at high speeds providing "higher damping forces at full jounce and rebound", according to Ford. The new coil rear suspension utilises a Watts link setup combined with solid rear axle.
