Global version of Ford’s next generation forest ranger out of the box, which means the sand dune badging Raptor variant doesn’t fall far behind. Official shoot spies and the videos published by Blue Oval give us a better idea of what to expect from the model when it breaks.
Ford’s photo is less revealing compared to the last series of photos Our spies sent us. We already knew that the Raptor would stand out from the Regular production ranger thanks to a specific grille with looks familiar The lettering “FORD” and larger tires sit under the flared wheel arches, among other changes. Inside, red accents on the steering wheel and on the dashboard help set the two pickup truck individual.
What’s perhaps more telling is the video (embedded above) that came with the release. Crank it up: that’s not like a diesel oil engine, right? Nothing official yet, but it looks like a 2.0-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder is powering The last generation Raptor won’t be back for a second jump in the desert. Unverified rumor claims that power will instead come from a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. that power recently announced Bronco Meat-eating birds. It can make more than 400 horsepower, though Bronco numbers are yet to be announced.
Explore the remote, dimly lit sections of the speculative road that leads us to Europe, where the Ranger Raptor is relatively popular. It’s certainly not a bulk model, but it does get a loyal following. However, various taxes and regulations prevent motorists from using their cars and vans with a large displacement engine, so swapping a 2.0-liter turbodiesel for a gasoline-burning V6 is like killing sales. Again, this is merely a hunch, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Ranger Raptor models made for some global markets end up with a different engine under the hood.
Ford’s Europe division will showcase the next-generation Ranger Raptor online on February 22, 2022, at 8 a.m. CET. 2: 00 a.m. in New York and 11 p.m. on February 21 in California. Sales will begin shortly thereafter. What remains to be seen is whether the baby Raptor will be sold in the United States around this time. The first-generation Ranger Raptor did not, a decision that was made in part because of the diesel turbine powering it, but rumors that the vehicle came from the US were increasing.
