2024 Ford Raptor: Next-Generation Ford Raptor Truck Review

Posted on

2024 Ford Raptor was previously revealed with twin-turbo V6 petrol As widely speculated, the new model is powered by the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 petrol engine as the Ford Explorer ST performance SUV in the US.

This version of the engine has been developed uniquely for the Ford Ranger Raptor and is equipped with anti-lag technology. This technology keeps the turbo running for up to three seconds even after the throttle is lifted for instant response in performance mode.

Ford has finally answered the call for more power with an output of 292kW/583Nm, which was criticized for underpowering the 2.0-liter twin-turbo four-cylinder (157kW/500Nm) diesel in the 2018 Ford Ranger.

These numbers will make the Ford Ranger Raptor once again the fastest and most powerful vehicle in its class. Performance figures are expected to hit 0 to 100 km/h in under 7.5 seconds thanks to epic power and a 10-speed automatic. It might even fit into a six-second bracket even though it weighs an estimated 2.4 tons.

The Volkswagen Amarok turbo diesel V6 with an eight-speed automatic does 0 to 100km/h in 7.8 seconds in comparison to one of them.

For now, it seems that Ford has no plans to introduce a new generation of Ranger Raptor diesel, but it is also possible that there will be a new version.

The claimed maximum output is rated using premium unleaded 98 octanes; The Ford Ranger Raptor’s new twin-turbo V6 petrol takes a premium of at least 95 octane unleaded.

2024 Ford Raptor U.S-Spec Review

It seems that tfltruck has some good information this time take a look at what appears to be the specs of the next-generation US 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor with no camouflage at all. Thanks to Bobby @bobbyvel_ on Instagram for providing these pictures from Surprise, Arizona.

Check out the large grille and separate bumper at the front. You can also compare it to the Bronco Raptor parked right next to it. Here’s our first look at the next-generation Ford Ranger making its official overseas debut.

Ford Raptor 2024 Features

Like the rest of the Ford Ranger lineup, the Raptor gets a number of safety and technology upgrades – such as blind spot warning and rear traffic warning. And the new Raptor will also get radar cruise control, a feature that the previous model didn’t have.

Other Good News Ford Ranger raptor is also expected to have a sophisticated 4-wheel drive system and can also switch to two-wheel drive to all wheels in order to provide stability in the journey of good grip, especially during wet weather.

The outgoing Ford Ranger Raptor can only be operated with two-wheel drive on closed roads, making it uncertain on wet roads thanks to the rugged off-road rubber.

The highly regarded BF Goodrich KO2 tires are carried over from before but have been adjusted to fit the new “adaptive” Fox shock absorbers.

2024 Ford Raptor Specs

As a good specification using familiar suspension geometries such as:

  • Rear Wattage
  • Fox 2.5 inch (64mm) shock absorbers
  • 33-inch (838mm) BF Goodrich KO2 all-terrain tires
  • along with coil springs and disc brakes (carryover) all around

The Ford Ranger Raptor is very promising to be a more powerful four-wheel drive vehicle.

The upcoming 17-inch wheels are off-road friendly and Ford is introducing optional Beadlock-capable wheels for hardcore enthusiasts who want to run ultra-low tire pressure off-road. Using this wheel and the Ford Performance lock ring the outer bead can be locked mechanically to the wheel.

However, wheels can only be used off-road in this disguise, as such arrangement of wheels and tires is illegal – with the outer bead mechanically locked to the wheel – on public roads in Australia.

Purchased optional wheels also come in Beadlock-capable for use on long highways using standard and geared wheels.

While the new Fox shock absorbers have the same 2.5-inch external diameter and internal bypass as the Ranger Raptor, Fox’s Live Valve technology is now used. These adaptive shock absorbers are present in high-performance luxury cars to further enhance off-road capabilities.

As we know the Ford Raptor also has a towing capacity of 2500 kg which is very similar to the current state of the vehicle 1 ton less than the regular Ford Ranger and more than most of the other twin cabins in its class. Indeed so far we can’t be sure of knowing the exact payload but we highly expect it to be similar to 750 kg for the current model.

The new generation Ranger Raptor will apparently get two tow hooks on each end for off-road use. Having two points means users can share the load at each point, using an equalizer strap.

2024 Ford Raptor Dimension

Speaking of dimensions the Ford Ranger Raptor is able to take the same 50 mm axle distance extension as the rest of the Ranger family which can be achieved by shifting the front wheels forward.

The wheel track is the same at 1710mm although the normal track is increased by 50 mm for the new generation. It can be concluded that in the Latest generation the Ford Ranger is very aggressive and the width of the current generation model car due to the difference between the two cars is about 50 mm to 100 mm.

The length, width, and overall height of the Ford Ranger Raptor seem to be the same as the previous version.

On the inside, special upgrades to the Ford Ranger raptor include a 12-inch touchscreen with 12.4-inch instruments featuring a special raptor-style look and unique fighter-inspired seats with orange code accents.

Ford Raptor Engine 2024

While we now know for sure what’s under the hood of the new Ford Ranger Raptor, its consumption remains predictable until Ford releases official lab test figures.

It’s safe to assume that the new model will use more fuel than the current-generation diesel-powered Ranger Raptor.

The twin-turbo petrol V6 peak power and torque figures are achieved when running on 98RON fuel, but the V6 Ranger Raptor has the minimum recommended octane rating for 95RON petrol.

It can run at 95 premium unleaded because, for now, examples sold in Australia will not be equipped with a gasoline particulate (PPF) filter.

The Petrol V6 Ranger Raptor will be equipped with a gasoline particulate filter (PPF) in other countries. At the same time, some regions will offer the new Ranger Raptor with a smaller, less powerful 2.0-liter twin-turbo diesel engine from 2023 onwards.

2024 Ford Raptor Price

Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but the new model is expected to cost a bit more than today’s version which is priced at $79,390 plus on-road costs, or about $85,000 drive.

2024 Ford Raptor Release Date

The next-generation Ford Ranger Raptor is expected to arrive in Australia at the end of next year.
