Roush Has A Go At The Ford Ranger And Creates Its Own Raptor

Fancy a Ford Ranger Raptor but live in North America? Legendary tuner Roush has got you covered.


  • The Ford Ranger Raptor is not available in North America.

  • Roush offers a performance kit that retails for $12,750 over the Ranger’s purchase price.

  • It could be considered the American Ranger Raptor.


Many parts of the world have access to what is arguably the coolest compact truck, the Ford Ranger Raptor. Although we can’t actually purchase one here, Roush has put together a package that elevates the base Ranger to Raptor levels.

The Roush package, for the 2020 Ford Ranger Lariat 4×4 with the 2.3-litre EcoBoost 4-cylinder includes the following:

  • ROUSH Grille with Dual LED Light Bars
  • Custom Fender Vent Badges
  • Dual Tip Performance Cat Back Exhaust System
  • 2.0 Off-Road Performance Suspension System
  • Satin Black 18” ROUSH Wheels
  • 32-Inch General Tire Grabber ATX Tires
  • Premium Interior Leather
  • Magnetic Gray Fender Flares with Integrated Accent Lighting
  • Custom Red Tow Hooks
  • ROUSH Floor Liners by WeatherTech
  • Serialized Interior Badge
  • ROUSH “R” Puddle Lamps
  • ROUSH Key Fobs
  • Certificate of Authenticity
  • Standard Graphics Package

If the package doesn’t entirely do it for you, Roush also sells a number of extra accessories including a ROUSH Chase Rack with dual Rigid light bars, a retractable aluminum bed cover, a cargo bed manager, an Off-Road utility kit, and more.

Jack Roush Jr. said about the package: “The ROUSH Ranger is a project we’ve been excited about for a long time. The 2020 ROUSH Ranger is an exceptional mid-size truck that combines both style and capability.”

As driven.co.nz states, the only real difference between the Roush package and the actual Ranger Raptor is the diesel engine. The 2.3-litre EcoBoost is still plenty powerful with 270 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque.

Ford introduced a number of performance variants of its Ranger two months ago. We might not have the Ranger Raptor (yet?) but truck lovers have options.
