Pickup Ford Ranger Raptor first go to Australia

Pickup Ford Ranger Raptor first go to Australia

About potential appearance in the Ranger gamut of the "charged" version of Raptor the rumors went for a long time.

This option we expected from the American Ranger. However, it seems that the first-born will be the Ranger of the Thai assembly, intended for the Australian market.

A new radiator grille with large letters Ford and protection under the bumper are tuned to combat mode. By the way, under the bottom there are additional protective elements, so that the appearance of the beginner fully corresponds to the possibilities. Compared to conventional brethren, Raptor has more suspension, which received more hardy Fox dampers.

The first information about the car came from the publication of Motoring. So the confirmation of the figures will have to wait until Raptor is officially presented. So, the junior Raptor engineers dispatched diesel 2.0 with two turbochargers. The return here is 214 h.p. and 500 Nm. Thrust is transmitted to both axles through a ten-step "automatic".

In the salon you can see the seats with advanced lateral support, blue stitching on the steering wheel, seats, front panel and armrests, and a red zero mark on the steering wheel. The entertainment system Sync 3 with an eight-inch touch screen, a rear-view camera, keyless access is standard equipment of the Raptor.
