The world premiere of the new Ranger Raptor is expected to take place in a few weeks.
A new Ford Ranger Raptor is upon us, and the Blue Oval made sure we all knew it with an encrypted QR code teaser during the standard Ranger reveal last year.
While waiting for the launch of the real one, our friends at Kolesa imagine what the next Ranger Raptor could look like through these two rendered. These unofficial images were based on recent spy shots of a gnarled pickup, which may or may not be accurate. For what it’s worth, we think they’re close.
The renderings here follow the next Ford Ranger design ethics. C-shaped DRLs, squared-off corners and non-plain taillight graphics all align with the new Ranger. The only deviations, which are expected based on the outgoing model, are the design of the front bumper and the FORD wordmark on the grille. The proportions of the bumper and the fog lamp housing bode well for this unofficial rendering.
On the back, a similar wordmark is also present, sitting on a blacked out part. Interestingly, the rear bumper lacks the running board found on the regular Ranger – a feature that is also missing on the prototype spotted on Thai roads.
The next-generation Ranger is also approaching its market launch:
The most important detail to know about the next Ranger Raptor would be its powertrain setup. A twin-turbo V6 petrol engine could make an appearance according to last year’s teaser. The V6 turbodiesel is also a likely candidate for other markets.
In case you want something even hotter, Ford is working on a V8-powered Ranger Raptor R. However, we’re not holding our breath for that one as it’s unconfirmed at this point.
Perhaps the biggest question is: will the Ranger Raptor ever be available for the US market? We have to wait and see.
