Kathmandu, Nov 13. Designed and engineered by Ford Performance, the second-generation Ranger Raptor has been developed with smarter technology controlling tougher, next-generation hardware to raise the off-road performance bar as a pickup built for true enthusiasts.
Packed with new features to tackle off-road terrain, the next-gen Ranger Raptor introduces the new twin-turbo 3.0-liter Eco Boost V6 petrol producing up to 397PS at 5,650rpm and 583Nm of torque at 3,500rpm tuned by Ford Performance, enabling phenomenal performance on and off-road. Paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission tuned to meet Ford Performance standards, the next-gen Ranger Raptor’s new engine delivers effortless acceleration on gravel, dirt, mud, and sand.
A class-exclusive electronically controlled active exhaust system allows drivers to alter the sound of their Raptor with four selectable exhaust modes: Quiet, Normal, Sport, and Baja.
To give desert-running power, the next-gen Ranger Raptor’s anti-lag system, available in Baja mode, has been designed to keep the turbo spinning for up to three seconds when you get off the throttle so that you’ve got instant power out of corners or between gears.
The Ford Performance team collaborated with FOX™ using a mixture of computer-aided engineering (CAE) and real-world testing to tune the spring rates, setting the ride height, tuning the valves and honing the ride zones to create the perfect balance between comfort, control, stability and traction on- and off-road. The next-gen Ranger Raptor features next-generation FOX 2.5-inch Live Valve Internal Bypass shock absorbers which are the most sophisticated ever on Ranger Raptor and can adapt in real-time, with sensors placed around the vehicle enabling the shocks to adjust damping rates at each corner 500 times a second.
The next-gen Ranger Raptor features up to seven selectable drive modes: Normal; Sport and Slippery are for on-road use, and Rock Crawl; Sand; Mud and Ruts and Baja are for off-road use.
The new interior has been designed for hardcore off-road racers. The Ford Performance ‘Code Orange’ accents on the instrument panel, trim and seats are enhanced by Raptor’s ambient lighting, which bathes the interior in an amber glow. All-new performance seats for the front and rear, inspired by the seats in an F-22 Raptor jet fighter, keep passengers firmly placed whether on- or off-road.
The next-gen Ranger Raptor comes with a fully digital cabin, with high resolution 12.4-inch digital cluster and 12-inch center touchscreen boasting Ford’s new-generation SYNC 4A®. Other features include up fitter Switches and Off-Road Screen.
Available in four exciting colors, including Absolute Black, Arctic White, Code Orange and Conquer Grey. Pricing for the Next-Gen Ranger Raptor 3.0L V6 Petrol, 10 speed automatic is RS. 2.15 core.
