The Ranger Raptor is the only Off-Road Performance pick-up for sale in Europe and has been uniquely engineered as a Ford Performance off-road racer. Something of a one-off in the European market
It's off-road performance capabilities are courtesy of:
The Fox Performance Suspension: The Raptor’s suspension has been specifically crafted to tackle rough terrain at high-speed while remaining in complete control and comfort. FOX Pro shock absorbers allow 30% greater travel than standard Ranger dampers.
The All-terrain BF Goodrich 285/70 R17 tyres: These have been specially developed for the Ranger Raptor and measure 838 mm in diameter and 285 mm in width. The design offers a tough sidewall to take on the most formidable environments with confidence, and an aggressive off-road tread pattern which provides an iron grip in wet, mud, sand and snow conditions.
The specially developed driving modes: Select from six Terrain Management System modes to tackle a wide range of terrain and driving scenarios, including Road, Sport, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Sand, Rock and Baja (Desert).
But it's the "Baja" driving mode that is particularly unique on the Raptor - it is this that provides the full Rally driving experience. It gets its name from the Baja 1000; a gruelling endurance rally through Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula and one of the most prestigious off-road events in the world. Baja driving mode opens up the traction control to allow more wheel slip rather than throttling power on loose ground - the driver is therefore in greater control. It also uses a more aggressive engine map with higher revs in each gear.
The Ranger Raptor is uniquely styled throughout with blue stitching and leather accents, premium leather and suede bolstered off-road seats specifically designed to provide grip, comfort and support and the steering wheel equipped with paddle shifters for crisp, easy gear changes.
There are a whole host of other features and technical specifications that set the All-New Ranger Raptor apart from other vehicles.
