News Ford Ranger Raptor: Raptor all the trucks!

Ford Ranger Raptor: Raptor all the trucks!

I don’t think we’ve ever wanted a pickup so bad here at MI. The OG Ford Raptor has long since been a favorite for most of us here but the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 sent our hearts aflutter with its available Duramax engine and standard MultiMatic suspension. Today’s news has us frantically counting our pennies and pooling our lunch money.

Ford has just announced that they will build and sell a Ranger Raptor. Now, first thing’s first. We, in North America, will finally see the return of the Ranger (will be at next week’s Toronto Auto Show), a near identical one to what the Aussies have always had. So, we’ll get that and then, hopefully, a Raptor will land alongside it in showrooms.

Being a Raptor means that it will be the business. It is bigger in every direction, with serious approach and departure angles, Fox Racing Shox dampers, composite fenders hovering above BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires and a new 10-speed automatic transmission. Attached to the 10-speeder? A twin-turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder diesel that puts out 210 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft. of torque.
