As with its big brother, the off-road-ready Ranger will also feature flared fenders, rugged tires, extra ground clearance, and an unmistakable grille. While it will ride on the same fully boxed ladder frame as the regular Ranger, the Raptor variant will receive a long-travel suspension for soaring over jumps and a more powerful engine for quicker desert runs.

The Raptor variant will reach showrooms on our shores sometime next year.

Pricing và Which One khổng lồ Buy


The Ranger Raptor will go on sale as a 2023 model, but Ford hasn"t said how much it will cost. We expect its starting price to exceed the top-of-the-line Ranger Lariat (currently priced at around $40,000). It"ll also likely align with competitors such as the Chevy Colorado ZR2 và the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

Ford hasn"t released fuel-economy ratings for the 2023 Ranger Raptor. Once they do, we"ll update this report.

Interior, Comfort, & Cargo

Inside, the Raptorized Ranger will be mildly different from its regular counterpart. While we still expect an abundance of hard plastics & some rubberized materials, Ford spruces up the cabin with exclusive content. The overseas version boasts leather & microsuede upholstery and heavily bolstered front seats. In addition to lớn a pair of aluminum paddle shifters, the steering wheel should wear a red band at the 12 o"clock mark, denoting its performance edge. We anticipate it"ll offer a similar phối of standard & optional features as the standard truck, including dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, remote start, và more. The Ranger Raptor will probably come in only one configuration: a crew-cab toàn thân style with a five-foot cargo box.
