Ford Finally Gave Us the Mini Raptor We've Always Wanted
Feb 08, 2018, 00:44
Like the standard Ranger, the Raptor will be built in Thailand. It builds the company's performance lineup. Up front, the Ranger Raptor swipes the F-150's grille, replacing the blue oval with "Ford" in big block letters. From head to toe, the brand-new Ford Ranger Raptorlooks the part, thanks to a menacing, all-black grille with "FORD" stamped into the center, frame-mounted front and rear bumpers, composite fender flares, high-strength-steel bash plate, and rugged side steps created to both prevent rock spray from hitting the rear of the truck, and allow rain, sand, and mud to drain.
The new vehicle from Ford's performance team will launch in the Asia Pacific market. There are even reinforced spare tire mounting crossmembers for the larger 17-inch Raptor wheels.
If you're already familiar with the F-150 Raptor, then you know the basic formula that makes up the Ranger Raptor counterpart. Coilover rear springs are used in the rear.
The shocks - categorised as "Position Sensitive Damping" type - are created to cop the worst of undulating terrain at high speeds providing "higher damping forces at full jounce and rebound", according to Ford. The internal bypass dampers are exclusively manufactured by Fox Racing Shox and have 46.6mm pistons. When it comes time to rein in speed, the Raptor Ranger's four-wheel disc brakes are created to offer extreme stopping power and feature larger twin-piston front brake calipers with ventilated front rotors measuring 13.1x1.3 inches. That's not bad for a truck that measures over 213 inches long. And since off-roading is what the Ranger Raptor was designed for, it features 32.5-inch approach, 24-degree ramp over, and 24-degree departure angles. The side steps are made from a tough aluminium alloy and include holes to drain sand, mud and snow. Tests saw Ford engineers apply a 100kg load to the sliders a staggering 84,000 times to simulate 10 years of use. We worked out that if you spec'd this baby F150 with options (Trac-Lok lockable diffs) and had an engine tune, you'd be left with a sorta-kinda 4/5ths-scale Raptor. The front bumper was created to offer desert durability and also includes new LED lights and functional air-curtain ducts.
The flared front wheel arches are said to be more resistant to the dents and dings associated with off-roading, and allow for the longer-travel suspension and oversized off-road tyres. There are a pair of tow hooks and a bash plate just underneath the nose. The sensors and tow connectors have been changed, too.
Providing an abundance of space, the 1560mm x 1743mm tray has been designed with the weekend explorer in mind, while the 2,500kg towing capacity also accounts for dirt bikes or jet-skis, as well as traditional work needs during the week. A frame-mounted front-bumper system is created to offer desert durability performance and a distinctive presence. Contrasting Dyno Grey accents help to accentuate the vehicle's look even further. But Ford has no shortage of small, powerful gasoline EcoBoost engines to shove under the hood in its stead.
Under the bonnet, there's a 2.0-liter Bi-Turbo diesel engine that makes 213 metric horsepower (210 bhp) and, more importantly, 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. Specifically what will power it. Power runs through a Ford-designed-and-built 10-speed transmission that is shared with the F-150 Raptor.
