Ford Ranger Raptor Overview
Ford is leveraging its highly successful Ranger Ute with a new model Raptor. Aimed at the premium sector of the Ute market, the Raptor will compete against HSV’s SportsCat, HiLux Rugged X, and even the entry level RAM 1500 Express.
Raptor allows buyers to have many of the extras that they often add on aftermarket, but with the integrated design and warranty of the original manufacturer. These include long travel suspension, better approach and departure angles, 4 wheel disc brakes and some All Terrain tyres on some fairly stylish alloy rims.
Raptor also features an all-new 2.0L Bi-Turbo engine that delivers power of 157kW and a handy 500 Nm of torque as well as an innovative 10 speed automatic transmission to extract the best from the engine
The Raptor has been highly anticipated, and at around $75,000 MLP* plus the on road costs, I reckon Ford will sell everyone they have.
*Includes GST and LCT but excluding statutory charges, dealer costs and dealer delivery. See your dealer for RDAP. Does not include price of options.
