Available now at Vospers Ford in Devon and Cornwall, the new Ford Ranger Raptor is no ordinary pickup, with exceptional off-road performance and versatile capability that ensures it can conquer any challenge. Taking everything that has made the standard Ford Ranger such a roaring success and adding a sense of all-terrain excitement, the Ranger Raptor is uncompromising and ready for action, redefining what it means to be a pickup truck.
While the new Ranger Raptor does, of course, take design cues from its Ranger sibling, one look at the thrilling new model is enough to realise that it has been developed from the ground up to be able to take on any challenge with confidence and capability. Whether it’s tackling mountain ascents, wading through rivers and streams, or taking on the dry, arid conditions of the desert, the Ranger Raptor will be the perfect partner.
There’s the durable and built-for-purpose front and rear bumpers, as well as a front skid plate. The distinctive front grille, meanwhile, is unlike any before seen on the Ranger, leaving a lasting impression whether on road or off. And, with alloy wheels paired with durable tyres, a bold statement is guaranteed wherever the vehicle takes you.
It’s not just muscle and determination that define the new Ranger Raptor, but intelligence too. A selection of advanced systems enhances the driving experience, in terms of driver assistance, entertainment, or information. The powerful new Terrain Management System, for example, enables you to simple push a button to select one of six different driving modes. These different options - Normal, Sport, Grass, Gravel and Snow, Mud and Sand, Rock, and Baja modes - optimise the driving style according to your surroundings, providing the most responsive performance possible.
In addition, the new Ranger Raptor comes with such innovative measures as the Ford SYNC 3 communications technology. Connecting to your smartphone and enabling you to control selected functions via touchscreen and voice commands, you will be able to access a host of infotainment measures safely and easily.
The appeal of the new Ford Ranger Raptor isn’t confined to its impressive looks and intelligent technology. With a powerful 2.0-litre producing 210bhp, this is a vehicle that packs more than enough punch to meet and demands you have of it. With a unique ladder-frame chassis forged from high-strength steel too, you can have the utmost confidence that the new Ranger Raptor has been crafted to withstand the demands of any off-road environment.
An important thing to note about this exciting new vehicle is that whilst it is homologated as a commercial vehicle, therefore it benefits from commercial vehicle VED, due to its payload of below 1 Tonne HMRC rules need to be taken into account, as such VAT is not recoverable on the All-New Ranger Raptor; the New Ranger price list gives Benefit in Kind details of the model.
