When Ford announced a Raptor version of its new medium-sized Ranger hot truck, the Internet began to look collectively as the Rave scene from the giant Cave of the second “Matrix ” movie, and that’s not exactly a surprise. I mean, what could be cooler than a medium-sized BI-turbodiesel with Fox’s suspension and twisted terrain management? How about one we’d like to get in the states? Because from now on, Ford has no immediate plans to get the baby Raptor into our little hot hands anytime soon.
However, as Tim Stevens pointed out, it is still super-early days for the ranger, and Ford would be foolish in the end not to bring the Raptor Ranger here. In the spirit of wild speculation, we will match it with your most likely competition we see as the Chevy Colorado ZR2, the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and of course the Raptor Ranger’s Big Brother, the F-150 raptor.
2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Specifications
This is where things get interesting. The manufacturers of these trucks are launching some serious development money into the suspension system to outdo each other in the category of desert stupidity.
The gold standard for off-road high-speed truck suspension has been the Raptor since it debuted in 2009. Its high-Perf Fox Racing Shox allow you to absorb laundry and jumps that would paralyze most other trucks. Ford knew that if he was going to slap the Raptor’s name in the ranger, people would treat him as atrociously as his older brother, so he put on another call to Fox. The blue Oval has not given us many specs on the smaller truck configuration, but we are betting that they did not skimp here, as the ranger Raptor cited 11.1 inches of ground clearance and an approximation angle of 32.5 degrees. For reference, the F-150 Raptor has 11.5 inches of clearance and an approximation angle of about 30 degrees.
2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Engine
Ford tells us that Raptor Ranger will come with a 2.0-liter twin-Turbo diesel engine when it arrives at showrooms abroad. That is tiny, even in comparison with the diesel in the ZR2, which comes in 2.8 litres. The second Turbo is worth its weight in gold, however, as the Ford Mill exceeds Chevy’s unit in terms of horsepower (210 vs. 181) and matches it for the torque (369 lb-ft). The TRD Pro makes 278 hp of its naturally aspirated gasoline-powered 3.5-liter V6 and only 265 lb-ft of torque. The F-150 Raptor is in another class with its EcoBoost V6 producing 450 HP and 510 lb-ft of torque, but it is a full-sized truck, so it doesn’t really count here, considering the amount of dough it has to be dragged around.
One of the things that makes the perfect Ranger as a potential street performance truck is under the hood. All American-Market Ranger get a four-cylinder turbocharged of 2.3 litres. It is a variant of the same engine found in the Ford Mustang EcoBoost and Ford Focus RS. The versions on both of these cars share impressive stats, with the Mustang making 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet pair, and the RS meets the power up to 350. Honestly, as much fun as the full 350 horsepower would be in a Ranger, only the 310 with 350 pounds-feet would be a lot entertaining as it is already in the Mustang.

The global Raptor Ranger is offered with a 2.0-liter twin Turbo diesel engine that makes 210 HP and 368 lb-ft of torque. The Ranger Fx4 for North America, however, will receive the Ford engine of 2.3 liters EcoBoost. We’re hoping that the four-cylinder gas to take the place of diesel in the Raptor Ranger in North America, and because it will have more power in the faucet than the oil burner, American truck enthusiasts should be fine with that. Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission must also be on the cards.
2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Price
This is what you mean, eventually. Let’s start at the top with the F-150 Raptor, which begins with only a hair under $50,000 and can jump quickly in the mid 60 with options. The Colorado ZR2 is cheaper, starting from about $42,000, but again, the list of options is deep, and you’re going to pay extra for the diesel. The Tacoma TRD Pro starts around $41K with a manual transmission (the only truck available with one in this group), and there are no packages to add. You would be able to push in the mid-40 with accessories, but overall this is the bargain outside the group considering that they have no prices yet for the Raptor Ranger, although we expected to start somewhere in the low $40,000 range.
Keep your eye on Roadshow for more details on Raptor Ranger as they are available, because we are at least as excited about this truck as you are and we can’t wait to get Emme Hall behind one’s wheel, if it comes in America.
