From early 2018 it was known that Ford would introduce the most powerful Ranger vehicle model on the US market in 2019. Ford is working on a strong and focused off road Ranger expected to be released in 2019. It is rumored that this new pick-up truck is a tough version from the current Ranger and acquired the Raptor name plate from Ford F-150. This new generation of Ford Ranger is a high performance variant with name Raptor. 2019 Ford Raptor Ranger is a truck smaller than Ford F-150, but this modern medium truck is still a fairly large animal.
2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Exterior, Interior Features
The new Ford Raptor Ranger 2019 will bring more aggressive styling on the front and a remade side profile. The front bumper, hook latch, and thick skid plate are all taken from Ford F-150 Raptor. The bumper design provides an impressive approach to driving out of the way and is made of steel, providing more resistance to abuse. The same stands for the front skid plate, which is mounted flat with the bumper, allowing critical mechanical component coverage.
Ford Ranger Raptor 2019 towing hooks are easily accessible such as Ford F-150 Raptor. This grille is also adopted from Ford F-150 Raptor with the signature F-O-R-D lettering. The body closure is expected to be minimal, thus offering more permission. Along its side, it is likely to have steel boards to make it easier to enter the cabin and act as a stone slider to protect the stone panels.
2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Engine, Performance, Specs
The new 2019 Ford Raptor Ranger is expected to get a turbocharged 3.5 liter Ecoboost V6 engine that pumps 375 horsepower and 470 LB-FT torque. The smaller 2.7 liter EcoBoost V6 found in their Ford F-150 pickup truck can also be offered. This engine will be paired with a 10 speed automatic transmission that was developed in conjunction with GM. Ford can be cheap and uses six-speed automatic. It would be great if Ford offered a six speed manual transmission. This truck is also considered as a sophisticated five link rear suspension adjustment. Ford might reduce Raptor’s high tech components. So it can get a limited-slip front differential; locking back differential electronically; and part time, two speed, electronically controlled transfer case.
Nobody outside Ford has caught a glimpse of the interior of Ford Ranger Raptor 2019. But it is speculated that the Raptor gets a unique seat with thick bolsters and leather accent panels. A standard fabric chair but a unique design separates it from other models. The steering wheel has a red mark in the center with a contrasting red stitch and thicker grip on the side. Behind the steering wheel the vehicle is mounted with a rowing shifter to the column. It maintains their location regardless of wheel movement.
In addition, the truck is likely to be accompanied by more safety devices, including a forward-facing radar on the windshield that will extend to emergency braking. In an effort to serve US buyers, the Ranger’s interior has been enhanced with improved in-dash technology and a larger screen.
2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Pricing, Release Date
2019 Range Raptor release date will be launched at the end of 2018 or early 2019. With a narrow gap between Ford Ranger Raptor and Ford F-150 Raptor, it is expected that Ford will not charge too much for the Raptor Range. Finally, it can be expected that 2019 Raptor Ranger price will start at around $ 42,000.
By launching Ranger Raptor 2019, the automakers have capitalized on the off-road segment. It seems that this pickup truck can be the most reliable offer in this segment. However, 2019 Ford Raptor Ranger will face stiff competition from the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, the Jeep Wrangler Pickup, the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro.
