Chassis

The unique Ranger Raptor ladder frame chassis was reengineered and strengthened with High Strength Low Alloy (HSLA) steel to meet the tough demands that off road performance driving commands. Tested extensively in the harshest desert environments in both Australia and the USA, the Ranger Raptor chassis delivers maximum toughness and high-spec performance.

Engine

Much like a Motorcross bike, Ranger Raptor’s powertrain was chosen to deliver ultimate responsiveness with minimum weight. Ford’s latest technology 2.0L BiTurbo diesel engine generates 157kW of power and 500Nm of torque across a wide rev range by utilising a team of high and low-pressure turbos, the turbines of which can reliably spin at 240,000rpm by utilising high-tech Inconel, an alloy used in rocket engines.

Transmission

Shared with the world-renowned 2018 F-150 Raptor and Mustang GT, Ford Ranger Raptor’s 10-speed automatic is crafted from high-strength steel, aluminium alloys and composites to optimise durability and weight. Specially designed for responsiveness and efficiency, this state-of-the-art transmission features a “Live in Drive” function, meaning the Ranger Raptor’s magnesium paddle shifters are always ready for instant manual gear changes.
