To Ford Ranger Raptor has 288 horsepower in Europe but in some markets will have many more horses.
New Ford Ranger Raptor is coming to be the new chapter in the history of a very special model that made a lot of sense around the world, upgrading the capabilities of a classic pick-up.
Only this time it exists will be a “distinction” between cars going to other parts of the world and those coming to Europe.
For example Ranger Raptor to be sold in Australia or South Africa will have 400 hp and 583 Nm of torque. But in Europe we will see a weaker version, with power reaching 288 hp and 491 Nm of torque.
The reason the V6 Ecoboost is less powerful in Europe is due to stricter emissions regulations. In fact, tThings get even tougher with the implementation of Euro 7 so cars like the Ranger Raptor will probably start to disappear from Europe.
In selected markets, and obviously in Greece, there will be the well-known two-liter diesel for which it has not been announced whether it will have gained more power.
Remember that the new Ford Ranger Raptor has a renewed look which refers directly to the F-150 Raptor with which some elements are shared.
In the lounge there are new seats with a design inspired by the respective fighter aircraft. On the dashboard, the large rectangular screen mounted “vertically” with a 12.0-inch diagonal is similar to that of the Mach E and gives access to all the functions of the car. Respectively, the instrument panel with a diagonal of 12.4 inches is completely digital.
The post that has received the “blessings” of Ford Performance that for the occasion chose a set of shock absorbers by Fox with a larger diameter than that of the existing Ranger Raptor which ensure 25% greater efficiency than those of the existing Raptor.
Simultaneously lock the differentials front and rear in combination with the large tires on 17-inch wheels, which have a total diameter of 88 cm due to the tires with the clear off road orientation, they ensure the top Ranger even more off road capabilities compared to the existing model.
Prices for the new Ford Ranger Raptor have not yet been announced and this is expected to be done by the end of the summer, at the same time as the launch of the model in the local markets of Europe. However, even with less power (since when are the 292 horses few?), The Ranger Raptor with the twin turbo V6 will remain the top pick-up on European soil and a car that writes its own history in the modern car.
