Ford Ranger Raptor coming to the UK priced from £40,000

Home / Automotive News / Ford Ranger Raptor coming to the UK priced from £40,000

Ford will bring the crazy-looking Ranger Raptor performance pick-to to the UK in February, Auto Express have exclusively revealed. The performance pick-up will be arriving here early in 2019, priced at around £40,000.

Within the UK, it has been said that the Ford Ranger is already one of the best-selling pick-ups, so seemingly a performance version would be a natural fit within the pick-up line. Built in Thailand, the Raptor has undergone a significant makeover by Ford Performance, the company that is responsible for the F-150 Raptor and GT Supercar and Focus RS.

But what’s new about the Ford Ranger:

  • New Grille
  • Extra ground clearance
  • LED fog lamps in the front bumper, which has been made out of composite materials to better withstand any dents and bumps
  • Flared wheel arches to accommodate for larger wheels
  • Long-travel suspension
  • Aluminium side steps, with puncture holes to release any sand, snow or mud
  • More supportive seats to support high speed off-roading
  • Tougher chassis frame
  • Upgraded breaks
  • ‘Bash plate’ underneath

I’m sure what you really would like to know is, how fast? What litre is the Raptor?

Well, the Raptor comes with a 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel engine, with 210bhp and 500Nm torque. As well as this, the Raptor will drive through a ten-speed automatic gearbox, similar to the F-150 Raptor, to ensure optimum performance in any weather conditions. There are also six different driving modes to choose from. Two for on-road use, and four for off-roading.

Once more, even the standard sat-nav will come with an off-road feature, which will allow the driver to leave a ‘breadcrumb’ trail to retrace their steps in unfamiliar environments. This is all part of the Sync3 infotainment system, which also offers Electronic Stability Control, Driver-Assist technology, Trailer Sway Control and a Rear View Camera.
