Ford Has Revealed The New Raptor & It Looks Mean & Powerful

And finally, Ford has revealed the new Raptor and it looks mean!


It raises the performance stakes, on and off road! Let's get to it.



The engine is an all-new twin-turbo 3.0-litre EcoBoost V6 petrol engine tuned by Ford Performance to produce a targeted 292kW and 491 Nm of torque. The car uses a 10-speed auto box.


The twin-turbo 3.0-litre EcoBoost V6 engine boasts a compacted graphite-iron cylinder block, which is around 75 per cent stronger and up to 75 per cent stiffer than the iron used in traditional castings. Ford Performance ensured the engine delivers immediate response to throttle inputs, and a race-bred anti-lag system similar to that first seen on the Ford GT road car and Focus ST enables rapid delivery of boost on demand.




The new anti-lag system, available in Baja mode, keeps the turbochargers spinning for up to three seconds after the driver backs off the throttle, allowing for faster resumption of acceleration out of corners or through the gears when the driver steps back on the accelerator.




The Next-Gen Ford Ranger Raptor also features Trail Control™, which is like cruise control for off roading. The driver simply selects a set speed below 32 km/h and the vehicle will manage its acceleration and braking while the driver concentrates on steering through difficult terrain.


It'll be available towards the last quarter of 2022
