The all-new 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor was unveiled, a smaller version of the full-size tough F-150 Raptor. It does, however, share the same ladder platform as a standard Ford Ranger. However, it has a longer suspension journey and a more powerful engine, making it a more versatile vehicle. Like the F150, the new Ranger Raptor has increased ground clearance, all-terrain tires, flared fenders, and an eye-catching grill. The Ranger has a cargo bed that is 5 feet long and only comes in one style. Inside, modern technology and high-quality materials create a sporty and comfortable environment.
On the outside, the Ranger Raptor is comparable to its bigger brother, the Ford F-150. It has a large FORD branding grill as well as a C-shaped grill on the front end. Its appearance, on the other hand, emphasizes the ranger. Its 17-inch alloy wheels with Raptor all-terrain performance are protected by wide wheel arches. There are also matrix LED headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights. There is predictive curve lighting, auto dynamic levelling, and free high beams.
Moving on to the back end, there are LED lights that match the front-end design, massive raptor badging, and dual exhaust pipes. A grey rear bumper with an integrated pad and tow bar is also included.
Ford Ranger Raptor Interior
The cabin of the 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor is outfitted with high-quality leather and microsuede upholstery, as well as comfortable seats. Not only that, but orange accents can be found on the instrument panel, steering wheel trim, and seats.
The Ford Ranger Raptor also has ambient lighting. The heated leather steering wheel with paddle shifters adds a sporty touch to the vehicle. The front and rear seats are also well-made, providing a sporty feel and support while driving at high speeds.
Engine, Power, Transmission
The new 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor is powered by a powerful 3.0-litre Eco-boost V6 engine. The v6 produces 392 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. However, because this is the Australian version of the Ford Ranger Raptor, the figures may differ slightly from the US model. The engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and includes four-wheel drive as standard. Because the new Ford Ranger Raptor shares the same powertrain configuration as the Ford Bronco, front and rear locking differentials are available.
The engine is also said to be powerful due to its compacted graphic iron cylinder block, which makes it even stiffer. Furthermore, it is programmed with individual turbocharging boost profiles for each of the ten gears for improved performance.
Infotainment and connectivity features
In terms of modern digital technology, the Ford Ranger Raptor is unrivalled. The ranger raptor’s cabin includes a 12.4-inch digital cluster display and a 12-inch infotainment touchscreen. The system includes Ford’s new SYNC 4A connectivity and entertainment system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, and a B&O sound system with 10 speakers is also available.
Ford Ranger Raptor Price
The 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor’s price starts from $85,490 to $86,790 plus on-road costs, a $1300 increase from early next year. Metallic paint will also be raised from $675 to $700 in response to increased demand for Ford’s high-performance pickup.
