Good news for Ranger fans today. We’ve heard filtered information that says the Dearborn automaker intends to introduce the 2018 Ford Ranger Raptor with a more compact design and a lightweight body. The new 2018 Ford Ranger Raptor is expected to be launched in North America no later than 2018. As we know, the Ranger truck has not been produced for 5 years and some of its competitors from General Motors and Toyota have dominated the market trucks.
Exterior and Interior
Obviously, the Ranger has risen in his rise to the Raptor category, with Ford promising “a head that turns to the outer look that exudes hardness.” As previously stated, the 2018 Ford Ranger Raptor should be equipped with extended wheels, 285/70 BF Goodrich off-road tires, a base plate, two tow hooks, a black Ford front grille and a towed tow.
In coincidence with the launch of the Raptor, the Ranger is on its way to a moderate refresh during the second half of next year, with an autonomous emergency brake with pedestrian detection and 360 degree cameras that should be offered. According to the vice president of Ford Asia Pacific, the development of Trevor Worthington products, the 2018 Ford Ranger Raptor will further increase the bar in the segment of medium-sized segment.
Speaking of specifications, the new 2018 Ford Ranger Raptor should have several engine specification options when it comes to market. The Power Stroke I Power Turbo Diesel engine will probably be the first choice. This five-cylinder diesel engine currently used by the Ford Transit 2016 with a maximum horsepower of 185 horsepower at 3,000 rpm and 350 lb-ft of maximum torque available between 1,500 and 2,750 rpm. A more powerful engine option should be offered to buyers, including a 3.5-liter Eco Boost V6 engine capable of delivering 365 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 420 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,500 rpm.
