Toughest and Most Capable Ford Ranger Raptor Unveiled

The Blue Oval has revealed the all-new Ford Ranger Raptor, so, the Ranger family now consists of three members: F-150, Bronco, and Ranger.

The 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor has stronger underpinnings, a more powerful engine, re-engineered suspension, and a number of off-road features from Ford Performance, like FOX 2.5-inch Live Valve internal bypass shock absorbers.

This is a global model to be available in many markets including North America. Expect it will cost from $52,500 in the USA.

The Ranger Raptor’s twin-turbo 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6 delivers 288 HP and 362 lb-ft (491 Nm) of torque. Besides, Ford will continue offering the current 2.0-liter EcoBlue bi‑turbo diesel engine in some markets. 

The new vehicle is equipped with an electronically-controlled active exhaust system that delivers engine sounds in four exhaust modes for different driving scenarios: Quiet, Normal, Sport, and Baja.

For the first time, the Ranger Raptor gets an advanced full-time four-wheel-drive system with a new electronically‑controlled on-demand 2-speed transfer case and locking differentials – front and rear ones.

One of the distinctions of the Ford Ranger Raptor is the availability of 7 selectable on- and off-road drive modes: Normal, Sport, Slippery and Rock crawl, Sand, Mud/Ruts, Baja.
