To be honest, we disagree somewhat if the Ford F-150 VelociRaptor is named VelociRaptor. Considering how big the size of the car engine and the car itself, we think it is more appropriate to say the Ford F-150 Tyrannosaurus Rex aka T-Rex.
This is not just any Ford Ranger, but this is the Ranger monster. This is Ford Ranger Raptor 2019, officially the sister of the famous VelociRaptor F-150. “The Ford Performance team was very enthusiastic to expand the Raptor name from the F-150 which became our flagship high-performance off-road car to the Ranger,” said Jamal Hameedi, Ford Performance’s chief engineer. Okay, after the Ford Ranger Raptor was present, the WildTrak Ranger looked tame.
“Just like the F-150 Raptor, the Raptor Ranger is built based on its roaming capabilities and displays Ford DNA’s distinctive characteristics clearly,” he said. In order to stick to the performance of his brother, the Ford Ranger Raptor uses a 2,000 cc 4 cylinder diesel engine with twin turbo with 213 PS and 500 Nm of torque.
To increase its cruising to all terrain, it is equipped with a long travel suspension made by Fox with a rear Coilover, an extra protector for the underside of the car, a 17-inch rim wrapped in BF Goodrich tires which are of the All Terrain type. To tame 500 Nm of torque, there are 4 discs with a diameter of 332 mm in front and rear 332mm. We like the big “FORD” posts on the grille, really exactly the F-150 Raptor.
The front bumper is mounted on a mounting that is installed in order to offer longer durability, and there is a new LED fog light with functional air ventilation because it can reduce air resistance from the body. He was even taller than the standard Ranger with ground clearance reaching 283 mm. That’s more than enough to split floods in the capital, especially this high-performance 4WD car.
The Raptor Ford Ranger has a 32.5 ° angle approach, 24 ° ramp over angle, and a 24 ° departure angle. This car has a height of 1,873 mm, a width of 2,180 mm and a length of 5,398 mm, aka bigger than a regular Ranger. The front and rear track of this car reach 1,710 mm. The Raptor Ford Ranger is mostly developed in Australia, with the help of the United States Raptor team, but all Raptor Ranger will be assembled at Ford plants in Thailand.
“The outstanding experience of the Raptor Ranger, is how far you can push it off the paved road compared to other production road vehicles available in our market, and keep driving like people on the highway,” said Damien Ross, Chief Engineer of the Ford Ranger Raptor Program.
In addition, the new Ford Ranger Raptor adopted the driving mode of Steel (read: Baha) from the F-150 Raptor. This Steel Mode optimizes the gas response, changes the gear and controls the turbo boost, and immediately activates the 4 × 4 modes in the 4H position, ensuring that the vehicle can overcome almost all the terrain that must be consumed in front of it.
We are very interested in this car. Yes, we know Ford is not here, Yes, we know having a double cabin here is a hassle and yes, we know the double cabin market is not big here in my country, but that did not dampen our interest in this Little Raptor. Especially because the size of the Ranger is friendlier than the F-150, it won’t be too difficult when we take it to split the streets of a city like a city cowboy. What do you think?
