The next Ford Ranger line-up could spawn a Ford Ranger Raptor variant
Rumours are circulating that the next Ford Ranger line-up, which is due in 2019, could feature a grunty Ranger Raptor version to help give Ford another hero car down under.
CarAdvice spied a prototype testing locally, and witnesses say that it sounded like that one of Ford’s V6 turbocharged EcoBoost engines, much like the one in the haloed F-150 Raptor.
Further weight is given to the Ranger Raptor argument as Ford Australia registered the “Ranger Raptor” and “Ranger FX4” names back in 2015, the Ranger FX4 is already on sale, so that leaves the other nameplate. Interesting.
