Ford Ranger Raptor Pickup Truck in Ford Perfomance Blue
The Ford Ranger Raptor was developed by Ford Performance, a division of Ford famous for developing cars wearing the legendary RS badge. It mixes the tough go-anywhere ability of other models in the Ranger line up with the kind of performance and driving pleasure that appeals to the enthusiast. It’s powered by a 2-litre Bi-Turbo Ford EcoBlue diesel developing a mighty 500 Nm of torque, which is distributed to the Ranger’s four-wheel drive system via a 10-speed automatic transmission, so it’s always in the right gear at the right time. The race-bred off-road FOX Pro suspension is designed to tackle fearsome terrain with ease while leaving the occupants in comfort.
The Raptor modelled was one of the first built and was retained by Ford of Britain for press and publicity duties. It has featured in many TV programmes including the BBC’s Top Gear, Dream Jobs with Chris Hoy on Motor Trend and Amazon’s The Grand Tour, where it was used as a support vehicle. It was also road tested by numerous magazines including CAR, Parkers, Auto Express, What Car and Company Van Today. Additionally, it has been widely used by the Ford Press team for various events including The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders test drive days which are attended by both journalists and industry figures. It was a key vehicle in Ford of Britain’s Press Launch for the New Ranger in 2019
