The New Generation Ranger Raptor was developed by the Ford High Performance division specifically for passionate off-road drivers. Specially crafted with a combination of sophisticated, premium suspension, smart technology and efficient 2.0L Bi-Turbo engine, Ranger Raptor promises to bring the experience of off-road enthusiasts to the top. a new height.

“We’ve worked incredibly hard and focused to make sure the next-generation Ranger Raptor is a huge step up from its predecessor,” said Dave Burn, Ranger Raptor Program Engineer for Ford High Performance. Predecessor.”

“Through simulation tests and computer-aided design technologies as well as extreme real-world testing in the remote lowlands of Australia, we have improved many key points such as the steering system, the ability to Control the vehicle at high and low speeds, on flat roads and off-road. Compared to the previous version, we think the New Generation Ranger Raptor can be rated 11 points out of 10.”

Performance proven in races

The Ranger Raptor is based on a reinforced version of the New Ranger chassis and is designed so that the Raptor can tackle difficult terrain at high speeds. The same chassis was used on the off-road racing pickup that conquered the endurance category in the world’s most extreme off-road race – the Baja 1000 in Mexico in late 2022.

To increase the rigidity of the chassis that is winning these races, Ford has added joints and reinforcements to this chassis. The body, trunk and suspension have been reinforced with more stiffeners, while the front shock absorbers have been reinforced and the stiff points in the upper A-forks have been adjusted. In addition, rear spring mounts and rear shock absorbers are equipped to ensure the New Generation Ranger Raptor can maintain high-speed operation when off-road.

Suspension system using improved 2.5-inch FOX shock absorbers with Position Sensitive Damping position sensor is the factor that helps Ranger Raptor conquer harsh terrain. Like the New Generation Ranger, they are mounted on the outside of the chassis to improve control and cornering stability. While the hardware comes from FOX, the tuning and development is done by the Ford High Performance team through a combination of computer design technology and field testing.

Chris Dean, Ranger Raptor Dynamics Engineer added: “The changes we’ve made to the suspension through a combination of damping adjustments with a host of physical improvements have helped Ranger The New Generation Raptor has much better body control over rough terrain than the previous generation.”

What’s more, the New Generation Ranger Raptor realizes a faster steering ratio and a larger power steering motor that improves steering feel and enhances handling.

“We wanted this Ranger Raptor to deliver the most intuitive, predictable and precise driving experience for the driver. Not stopping at the ability to operate more flexibly than before; The driving experience will be more exciting, engaging, and inspiring than ever. I am sure our customers will be thrilled with the Next Generation Ranger Raptor.”

Ford’s 2.0L Bi-Turbo engine produces a maximum capacity of 210 PS at 3750 rpm and a maximum torque of 500 Nm at 1750 – 2000 rpm, combined with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

It is this that has created a pickup truck that not only provides a confident driving feeling, but also helps the driver feel interesting on every road, whether it’s off-road or off-road.

The ability to control any terrain

For the first time, Ranger Raptor is equipped with an advanced all-wheel drive system, with an all-new 2-speed gearbox equipped with electrical control, combined with a locking function of the rear differential. . This is a feature that will satisfy demanding off-road players.

Supporting the New Generation Ranger Raptor to conquer all types of terrain from flat roads to mud, trails and sand are 7 optional driving modes with the highlight being the dedicated ‘Baja’ mode for off-road operation. high speed. In Bajaii mode, the avionics are set to optimum performance.

Each driving mode adjusts a number of different factors such as the engine, transmission, sensitivity and adjustment of the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), traction and stability control, steering, and position sensors. throttle position and even the center console and touchscreen.

Flat road

  • Normal – designed for comfort, fuel economy and ease of control;
  • Sport – more responsiveness for high-speed driving on asphalt;
  • Slippery – for more confident driving on slippery or uneven road surfaces.

Terrain road

  • Rock Crawl – provides optimal traction and momentum on uncertain surfaces;
  • Sand (Sand) – for use in soft sand and deep snow conditions, optimizing power delivery and pitch;
  • Mud/deep grooves (Mud/Ruts) – for maximum traction when braking and maintaining momentum;
  • Baja – tuned to optimize high-speed off-road performance with all systems set to work at maximum capacity.

The New Generation Ranger Raptor is also equipped with Trail Control™, which works similar to an automatic throttle system but for off-road travel. The driver only needs to set a speed (under 32km/h), and the car will actively accelerate or brake while the driver focuses on steering to overcome difficult terrain.

Energetic design

Along with the outstanding performance of the Ranger Raptor is a completely new design, bringing the design of the next generation Ranger to a new level. The highlight that creates the wide and horizontal appearance of the pickup truck is the curved wheel arches, the typical C-shaped headlights of Ford trucks, the large FORD words on the grille and the front bumper designed separately from the front bumper. grille.

Matrix LED front lights with LED daytime running lights take lighting performance to a new level, including automatic lighting direction adjustment, anti-glare headlights and automatic dynamic balance adjustment to provides safer lighting for Ranger Raptor drivers as well as oncoming vehicles.

The wide overhanging wheelbase matches the muscular 17-inch rim design and BFGoodrich® KO2® all-terrain tyres. Many other details are also newly designed such as air intakes, aerodynamic features and cast aluminum side steps. These details make the car more rigid, highlighting the look and function of the New Generation Ranger Raptor.

In terms of interior, front and rear sports seats inspired by fighter jets, maximum support for passengers when cornering, premium leather-wrapped sports steering wheel with inflated thumbpoints. The hand shape, the center line marking the center of the steering wheel and the gearshift paddles made of high-quality magnesium alloy will bring a special experience to customers.

The signature orange stitching on the dashboard, interior details and seat trims, combined with the interior lighting system, creates an amber-tone interior that looks modern and sophisticated. The center console area includes a sharp 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster and a 12-inch central touchscreen with the new SYNC® 4Aiii infotainment system, which connects wirelessly to the infotainment system. both Apple and Android operating systems.

Become part of the Ford High Performance Family

The origin of the name Raptor lies in North America, where Ford engineers used the name on high-performance pickup trucks. First appeared on the first generation F-150 SVT Raptor in 2010, optimized for high-speed off-road performance. Ford focused on upgrading technical details around the suspension, all-terrain tires and all-wheel drive.

In 2018, a new member of the Ford High Performance family was introduced. The Ford Ranger Raptor has brought the Ford High Performance brand to a whole new audience of true pickup truck lovers around the world. Since then, the name Raptor has been added to dozens of new markets.

The Ranger Raptor continues this legacy as a vehicle built specifically for the purpose of balancing a customer’s daily activities with a passion for off-roading, unprecedented in a pickup. medium.
