Ford ranger raptor to be powered by a four-banger?


Not to be confused with the F150-based Raptor as is sold in the US, the Ranger Raptor due to hit our market next year will be a performance version of Ford’s existing mid-size offering, the Ranger.

Though we don’t have confirmation yet, reliable sources suggest that the new Ranger Raptor will be powered by a high output, twin-turbo 2.0-litre diesel engine – which comes as a big disappointment to many Ford fans hoping to see the 2.7-litre Ecoboost V6 petrol introduced, or at least the 2.3-litre four-cylinder currently found under Mustang bonnets.

However, Ford insists the twin-turbo 2.-litre diesel mill is set to at least match the outputs of the current 3.2-litre 5-cylinder diesel units, yet be much lighter and more responsive when mated to an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission.

The Ranger’s rear end will also be modified by using the very effective Watt’s Link/live axle and coil-sprung suspension set-up borrowed from the Everest SUV, plus disc brakes all round. An aggressive body kit, off-road suspension and raised ride height will finish off the look.
