The 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor is US Bound

What a time to be alive! On a global scale, Ford revealed the exhilarating Ranger Raptor. However, the automaker kicked the spicy pepper up a notch with confirmation that the off-road pickup will blow up the American market by next year (2023). Like everything this grand and great American brand stands for, the Raptor will receive a few alterations to its appearance to truly embody that American dream. 

Even cousins look alike, and the Ranger Raptor proves that with its resemblance to the Bronco Raptor regarding its powertrain. At the time of writing, the Raptor remixes feature the same twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine that renders 392 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, there’s a 10-speed automatic transmission plus four-wheel-drive premiers standard. The two-speed transfer case and front and rear locking differentials are also standard.

Mary J.Blige has nothing on this family affair as the Bronco Raptor and its older cousin, the F-150 Raptor, share the Fox Racing adaptive shocks. The only difference is the Bronco sports 2.5-inch diameter shocks while the F-150 fosters 3.1-inch diameter Fox shocks. 

The Ranger Raptor is a boastful thief stealing another remarkable feature from the Bronco, an anti-lag system. The anti-lag feature ensures the turbo remains reeled in once the driver lifts off the throttle for brief periods. Furthermore, the Ranger Raptor features several different driving modes that impact the projection of the exhaust, the tuning of the shocks, and so much more. 

The Raptor model reads “FORD” across the entire front grille in true Blue Oval fashion. Although the Ranger Raptor’s body appears wider than the next-generation Ranger, its extravagant fender flares play a vital role in that transcendence. Additionally, the Ranger (pictured above) premiers 33-inch BF Goodrich K02 all-terrain tires and optional 17-inch bead-lock-capable wheels. 

Inside, the Ranger Raptor’s interior presents a more modernized appeal than the current Ranger. The Ranger Raptor features the massive 12-inch vertically oriented touchscreen plus a digital gauge cluster. The touchscreen operates on Ford’s Sync 4A software. Allegedly, the Ranger Raptor will likely premier as a crew cab similar to the F-150 Raptor. Expect more solidified information about the US’s 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor in the coming months.
