Ford Ranger Raptor confirmed for Australia

Ford Ranger Raptor confirmed for Australia

Ford is keeping details quiet but we suspect the Ranger Raptor will run a beefier engine, more aggressive bodykit, different suspension and exhaust and a bespoke interior.

Australia will receive the Ranger Raptor in 2018, and in theory, it could eventually make its way to the U.S., too. A likely bet for the powertrain is a detuned version of the F-150 Raptor's 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6. A standard version of the Ranger's 3.2 litre turbo diesel? Either way, Ford assures "an adrenaline-pumping experience".

A new 10-speed torque-convertor automatic transmission co-developed with General Motors (GM) is expected to be mated to the chosen powerplant, while a four-wheel-drive (4WD) system will feature.

"We are excited to announce that the hugely popular Ford Ranger bakkie will be available in an off-road performance variant for the first time", said Ford South Africa.

It's official. Ford Australia has confirmed, after many rumours and much speculation, that it'll be building a Ford Ranger with extreme off-road performance and it will be named the Ford Ranger Raptor.

Ford so far has only conceded it intends to bring the Ranger to a "whole new level" when it goes on sale in 2018, with the Ford Performance division naturally taking command of the research and development process.

After spy shots revealed a rather bulky Ford midsize truck, the company has finally let the cat out of the bag - the Ranger Raptor is real, and it's going to be awesome.

Ford Ranger Raptor joins F-150 Raptor to advance the globally renowned Ford Performance DNA, complementing the on-road high performance lineup of Ford GT, Ford Mustang Shelby, Focus RS and Focus ST.
