Ford Reveals Its 2 Litre Turbo Diesel Ranger Raptor For Australia

Ford is ready to slay all expectations with the 2019 Ranger Raptor

(In the interest of full disclosure you should know the author is a moderator at the Facebook ZR2 owner's club). Power runs through a Ford-designed-and-built 10-speed transmission that is shared with the F-150 Raptor.

Ford has surprised the motoring world by ripping the sheet off the Ranger Raptor.

The Ranger Raptor is powered by a 2.0-liter Bi-Turbo diesel engine that provides 210 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. While undoubtedly high-strung, the team thermo-tested the sequential turbo setup for reliability at glowing red-hot temperatures for 200 hours continuously.

Shifting gears is the company's new 10-speed automatic transmission, shared with the F-150 Raptor and soon to be offered in the face-lifted Mustang sports auto.

Billed as being a "factory-built performance truck" catering the off-road enthusiast crowd, the Ranger Raptor is motivated by an entirely new four-cylinder, 2.0-liter diesel engine fitted with a pair of turbos. It will go sale in the Asia Pacific market ahead of the Ranger's return to Ford had previously announced plans to launch the performance Ranger Raptor in 2019 in South Africa. "Just like the F-150 Raptor, the Ranger Raptor builds upon the core capability of the range of vehicles it comes from and carries the unmistakable Ford Performance DNA appearance", said Ford Performance chief engineer Jamal Hameedi. The new bumpers and 11.1-inches of ground clearance give the truck an approach angle of 32.5 degrees, ramp over angle of 24 degrees and a departure angle of 24 degrees.

A modified rear bumper houses an integrated tow bar, and recovery hooks rated at 3.8 tonnes. Continuing on with exterior features, the step boards were designed specifically to prevent rock spray from hitting the rear of the truck and the holes have been created to drain sand, mud and snow.

Snapchat just did something insane . It beat expectations
Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $158.9 million, compared to the adjusted EBITDA loss of $152.3 million in the year-ago quarter. Revenue per user rose 46 percent from a year earlier to $1.53, while cost of revenue per user rose 5 percent to $1.02.

"Raptor's race-bred suspension has been specifically crafted to tackle undulating terrain at high-speed while remaining in complete control and comfort". The solid rear axle will use a combination of coilovers and a Watt's linkage, allowing for vertical movement without lateral play, for improved ride and handling.

The Ranger Raptor borrows many styling cues from its big brother, the F-150 Raptor, including its grille with the large block FORD lettering.

The Ranger Raptor could build on demand for the performance truck there.

Helping the new Ranger Raptor put the power down is a set of BFGoodrich tires, measuring 285/70R17 in size, that have been specially developed for this truck. Like those on the F-150 Raptor, the dampers are by Fox Racing Shox with 46.6mm piston for front and rear.

Sport and normal are the only on-road settings while off-road gets modes for rock; grass, gravel and snow; mud and sand; and a unique "Baja" mode that's tuned for high-speed off-road performance that Ford says is "just like drivers in the famous Baja Desert Rally need".

"It is awesome to enable this level of performance and create a vehicle that can provide off-road enthusiasts such an adrenaline rush", he added. "It really is like a motocross bike, snowmobile and an ATV rolled up into a pickup truck - it's an incredible, awesome experience!" In August, a rendering used the best info available at the time to imagine the smaller Raptor's possible design, but Ford made the machine look even tougher than the team's artist could have ever expected. The steering wheel is distinctively different and includes new Raptor lightweight magnesium paddle shifters for crisp gear changing.
