Ford Ranger Raptor

With more of these cool utes spotted in the U.S., how soon before the Ranger Raptor becomes available? 

Recently there has been an increase in sightings of the Ford Ranger Raptor, a sweet mid-sized truck currently only offered overseas. We recently reported about a Ford Ranger Raptor spied on video in Mesa, Arizona. Then this week, Truck Trend captured a sighting of a 2020 left-hand-drive Ranger Raptor. Now yet another Ranger Raptor has been spotted, this time in Dearborn, Michigan. Hm.

The images of this right-hand-drive Ranger Raptor were posted on Reddit by user Crazy Alice. Crazy Alice reported that she saw the ute, hopped out, and took the pictures before a Ford employee spotted her. “I got what I could and GTFO,” she wrote. But many props to her for getting such great images.

The Ranger Raptor currently is powered by a 3.2-liter turbo-diesel inline-five, making 211 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. However, the American version would likely use Ford’s 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6, with 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft.

We’re hoping that all these Ranger Raptor sightings mean that the fresh and clean truck will be headed to American markets in 2020.
