2024 Ranger Raptor Coming to America

Posted at Wed, Jul 19, 2023 9:30 AM

Ready to embark on an adrenaline-fueled off-road adventure? Look no further than the Ford Ranger Raptor. This formidable beast combines the versatility of a pickup truck with the heart-pounding performance of a high-performance sports car. Whether you're conquering rugged terrain or cruising through city streets, the Ranger Raptor is the ultimate companion for thrill-seekers like you.

All-new for the 2024 model year, the Ford Ranger Raptor is the most powerful and capable off-road Ranger ever produced. The Ranger Raptor joins the ranks of the F-150 Raptor, F-150 Raptor R, and Bronco Raptor.

The Ford Ranger is a midsize pickup truck that has recently been reintroduced to the American market after being only available internationally for a number of years. The 2024 model eschews the conventional in favor of the bold. One such way Ford has done this is by moving away from having many different configurations. The Ford Ranger and Ranger Raptor are only available with a four-door crew cab and a five-foot bed. 

Every aspect of the Ranger Raptor's design serves a purpose. Its confident and modern styling begins with LED projector headlights illuminating the night, accompanied by distinctive C-clamp signature lighting. You'll find bold F-O-R-D lettering on the grille, while an all-steel bumper integrates front and rear tow hooks, ensuring durability. At the rear, LED taillights mirror the C-clamp design, creating visual cohesion throughout. The flared fenders not only enhance the Raptor's aggressive appearance but also feature functional fender vents. 

The Ranger Raptor is equipped with robust 33-inch BFGoodrich all-terrain KO3 tires mounted on 17-inch wheels. For those seeking even greater off-road capability, optional beadlock-capable wheels are available, allowing for lower tire pressures in challenging conditions like sand and rocky terrain. The Ranger Raptor is also supplied with comprehensive underbody protection, including a thick front bash plate made from high-strength steel and shields dedicated to safeguarding the engine, transfer case, and fuel tank.

Unmatched Performance

The Ford Ranger Raptor is built around a powerhouse of an engine. The specially tuned Ford Performance twin-turbo 3.0-liter EcoBoost V-6 generates an impressive 430 lb-ft of torque. It boasts a best-in-class maximum available 405 horsepower, making it the most powerful Ranger ever built. This formidable engine is designed to deliver exceptional performance on the most challenging of landscapes, including gravel, dirt, mud, and sand.

Built on a compacted graphite-iron cylinder block, the EcoBoost engine incorporates a cutting-edge anti-turbo-lag system inspired by racing technology. In Baja mode, this system ensures instant boost when needed, keeping the turbochargers active for up to three seconds even after the driver releases the throttle. This means that acceleration is readily available when exiting corners, providing an exhilarating driving experience.

Paired with the EcoBoost engine is a class-exclusive 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, which offers seamless gear shifts and enhances overall performance. This advanced transmission is connected to an innovative four-wheel-drive system featuring a newly introduced electronically controlled on-demand two-speed transfer case. This system, combined with front and rear locking differentials, allows the Ranger Raptor to conquer challenging environments with exceptional control and traction.

Next-Generation Suspension

The suspension is at the core of every Raptor, and the Ranger Raptor is no exception. Designed with off-road performance in mind, it features a purpose-built suspension system with lightweight aluminum upper and lower control arms, a long-travel rear suspension with a Watts linkage, and trailing arms to optimize off-road capability. This setup guarantees control and confidence no matter what type of landscape your truck encounters.

The Ranger Raptor incorporates next-generation FOX 2.5-inch Live Valve Internal Bypass shocks to take suspension performance to the next level. These advanced shocks are coil-overs at the front and piggyback reservoirs at the rear, effectively managing heat buildup to deliver uninterrupted performance throughout your adventures.

The beefy foundation of the Ranger Raptor is built upon the already robust, fully boxed frame of the standard Ranger, with notable enhancements. Reinforced front frame rails, front shock towers, rear shock brackets, suspension mounting points, and other critical areas ensure the Ranger Raptor can easily handle even the most demanding off-road conditions.

Safety and Technology

The Ranger Raptor is equipped with a 360-degree camera and front view camera to assist in off-roading. These cameras provide a comprehensive view of the surroundings and allow for precision navigation, whether the Raptor is tackling particularly rugged trails or maneuvering through tight spots.

When exploring remote locations, Zone Lighting becomes an invaluable feature. With the ability to illuminate the night, drivers can venture off the beaten path with enhanced visibility. Whether setting up camp or exploring unfamiliar territory, Zone Lighting ensures that every corner is well-lit, providing a sense of security and convenience.

The FOX Live Valve Internal Bypass system adapts damping performance according to the selected drive modes of the Ranger Raptor, including Normal, Tow/Haul, Sport, Slippery, Off-Road, Rock Crawl, and Baja. Each selectable drive mode not only adjusts the tuning of the engine, transmission, ABS calibration, traction control, steering, and throttle response but also customizes the instrument cluster and touch-screen display to provide relevant information. The active valve exhaust system also offers different modes, including Quiet, Normal, Sport, and Baja, allowing drivers to fine-tune the truck's exhaust sound.

The Ranger Raptor takes towing to the next level with its class-exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist. This innovative feature assists drivers in backing up boats and campers, even in remote locations.

For those seeking an enhanced audio experience, the Ranger Raptor comes with a Bang & Olufsen sound system. With this premium audio setup, drivers can immerse themselves in their favorite soundtracks, elevating their off-road journeys with exceptional sound quality.

The Ranger Raptor offers a high-resolution 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster and a 12-inch center touch screen. Running on the SYNC 4A system, this advanced technology provides seamless connectivity with wireless smartphone integration, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
