If you’re the sort of person who’s always keeping an eye out for the latest vehicles, here’s something that’s sure to grab your attention. In early 2019, Ford plans to launch its incredible Ranger Raptor on the European market – meaning that this slick, sophisticated vehicle will soon be making its way to the UK.
An off-road tuned pickup truck, the Ranger Raptor is capable of going from 0-62 mph in just 10.5 seconds, with a top speed of 106 mph. Powered by a 2.0-litre twin-turbocharged diesel engine, this impressive vehicle delivers a powerful 210bhp to each wheel, resulting in an amazing performance no matter what the terrain.
And that’s far from all. With Fox Racing shock absorbers on the front suspension and a rear setup complete with Watt’s linking system and coilovers, the vehicle also comes with optional BF Goodrich tyres, making it the perfect choice for off-road adventures. And with a modified chassis capable of handling high speeds in difficult conditions – not to mention default modes for tackling different terrain such as snow, mud and rock – it’s sure to become a favourite with those who like to add a little thrill to their ride.
Last year, the Ranger was Ford’s best-selling pickup truck in the UK, with some 13,000 vehicles sold across the country. And now, the popular brand must be hoping to repeat that success. But what about those of us who love the specs and look of the Ranger Raptor but lack the funds to purchase outright?
