2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Canada
2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Canada Today, Ford officially revealed Ranger Raptor, an extreme off-road version of its popular medium-sized pickup truck. Although it is smaller than the venerable F-150 Raptor, the new Raptor Ranger looks so sturdy and off the road ready. In fact, because it is not so wide, the Raptor Ranger will probably be able to handle the trails that the F-150 raptor cannot. If that has aroused your interest, here are five facts about the new Ford Ranger Raptor you need to know.
Based on the official photos, it is clear that the Raptor treatment turned the Ranger into a taller and wider truck. But looking at the official Ford specs, it’s almost amazing how much the Ranger has grown. Compared to a double-cabin ranger, the Raptor is more than a wider foot, with a front and rear track that has grown almost 6 inches. It also sits about 2 inches taller, giving the Raptor Ranger more than 11 inches of free space. This means that it now offers an approximation angle of 32.5 degrees, an exit angle of 24 degrees and a breakover angle of 24 degrees.
The new Raptor Ranger has not been simply widened and lifted. It has also been equipped with more of its fair share of the new components to make sure it is off the road-ready. This means new Fox Racing Shox pads, new Coilovers rear, thick BF Goodrich all-terrain tires, up-to-date brakes, underbody protection and dirt-resistant mud. In case you get stuck or need to rescue another vehicle, the Raptor also comes with a tow bar and integrated tow hooks.

For all intents and purposes, Raptor Ranger looks like version F-150. It’s smaller, of course, and this version has the driving position on the wrong side, but the rest is remarkably similar.
It has similar lights to the new Mustang that fit perfectly alongside the black grille and flared wheel arches. There is a lot of detail panel ahead which is provided in the profile towards the rear. The hood is a complex form that includes a curve in two planes and a bulge in the center.
Black edging in everything seems far superior to the usual Chrome and there is a lot of it. A polished aluminum protector under the front sill is the only metal splash to be seen and the Raptor looks better for him. Black alloy wheels, black side passes and black trim everywhere look gorgeous.
2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Engine
Yes, you read it well. Raptor Ranger has a diesel. Specifically, it has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel that makes 210 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. But while many trucks have diesel engines, the Raptor Ranger is actually a twin-Turbodiesel. As in petrol engines, matching a smaller turbo with a larger one works to minimize lag and improve performance. That energy is then sent to the wheels via an automatic 10-speed transmission.
Like the F-150 raptor, Raptor Ranger receives the Ford terrain management system. TMS comes with six different drive modes, two for road use and four for ATV. The default truck to normal, but in sport mode, the transmission moves faster, stays on the longer gears, and cuts more aggressively. On slippery surfaces, there is a grass/tomb/snow mode that begins on the second gear and smoothes the changes to avoid turning tires. Meanwhile, the rock mode corrects the accelerator for a better low-speed drag, while the mud / sand mode hooks up to lower the gears to maximize torque. Finally, there is low mode, high speed OFF-Road setting that minimizes traction and stability control while gears are shifted as in Sport mode.

At the Detroit Auto Show earlier this month, Ford finally revealed the North American market Ranger. Production will begin at the end of this year, with sales starting at the beginning of 2019. However, although the Raptor Ranger is finally a good chance to take part in the American series, today’s truck will be sold exclusively on the Asia Pacific market. For this reason, any Ford version that decides to sell in the US will likely offer different propellers, interior features, package options and coating combinations.
