Ford Ranger Raptor 2018 Review

Cheap 2018 Ford F-150

 

The Ford Ranger Raptor dual-cab ute’s spec sheet reads like an off-road racer’s dream: wider track, more ground clearance and suspension travel, specialist suspension and a drivetrain that includes a high-tech twin-turbo diesel and 10-speed(!) auto. But there is a price to pay for these (country) boy-racer credentials, beyond the $74,990 sticker. The Ford Ranger range-topper arrives without the same safety suite as the Ranger Wildtrak, or XLT, can carry less and only tow the same as a mid-size SUV. Does that mean we’re lukewarm on the hottest Ranger ever? What do you reckon!

Most anticipated

The Ford Ranger Raptor – the wildest, most powerful and most expensive factory-built Ranger double cab pickup ever produced – has been in the planning since 2010 and making waves in the media since 2015.

The new performance flagship for Australia’s top-selling 4×4 dual-cab range was first spied in mid-2017. Then the Ford Ranger Raptor was first officially teased in September 2017, before we sampled it from the passenger seat in late 2017.

The production Ford Ranger Raptor was formally revealed in February this year and the Australian-designed and engineered super ute’s near-$75,000 price tag was announced in April.
Since then, Ford Ranger Raptor has attracted about 1000 orders, so all that’s left to do was to drive it

 

Vital specs

Developed primarily in Australia by Australians for Asia-Pacific markets including Thailand where it’s built, the first Ford Ranger Raptor is billed as the first factory-built performance truck designed for the true off-road enthusiast. It’s far from a tricked up XLT.

Like both generations of its original namesake, the Ford F-150 Raptor, the smaller Raptor is based on a humble 4×4 double cab pick-up but its off-road capability and visual ‘volume’ have both been turned up to 11.

In this case, the Ford Ranger Raptor starts life as the top-spec 2019 Ranger Wildtrak and adds a solid dose of body, chassis and powertrain upgrades, but there are two notable omissions that are standard on 2019 Wildtrak models: autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and radar cruise control.

Ford says it’s working to add these two important safety features to the Raptor spec sheet some time next year.

 

Weight up, payload and towing down

There are other negatives – apart from the $14,400 price premium over the Wildtrak manual (there is no Raptor manual), the $12,200 price hike over the Wildtrak auto, and the $11,000 extra over the Wildtrak BiTurbo with the exact same powertrain.

Headlining the Australian specs is a kerb weight of 2404kg (GVM: 3090kg). This is up a substantial 154kg over the standard Wildtrak due to the extensive chassis modifications and the Ranger Raptor’s unique 285/70 R17 BF Goodrich All Terrain KO2 tyres on black 17×8.5-inch alloys.

 

More details

Together with the bigger rubber.

This increases the Ford Ranger Raptor’s track width by 150mm (10 per cent!) to a broad 1710mm and ground clearance by 50mm to leggy 283mm. Cheap 2018 Ford F-150

Improving lateral stability and ramp-over angle (24 degrees).

Thanks to a redesigned rear cross-member, which wraps around the full-size under-tub spare wheel and houses two 3800kg recovery hooks, the rear departure angle also increases, also to 24 degrees.

Up front, a chunky new front bumper with bold black FORD grille, LED fog lights, aero-cheating air curtains and a reinforced 2.3mm steel bash plate (with twin 4500kg recovery hooks) delivers a steep 32.5-degree approach angle.

These figures are up from 21, 25 and 29 respectively for regular 4×4 dual-cab Rangers, helping make the Ranger Raptor a ‘whitespace’ model with no direct competitor, says Ford.

 

Bulging muscles

The Ford Ranger Raptor’s taller, wheel-at-each-corner.

But the tub’s interior dimensions are identical (1560x1743mm) and there are no fancy anchor points, nor rail system.

Wrapped around the wheel-houses are beefy wheel-arch.

Compared to the Wildtrak overall. The Ford Ranger Raptor is 28mm shorter (5398mm), 320mm wider including mirrors (2028mm excluding mirrors) and 52mm taller (1873mm).

There are five exterior paint colours, including the cool new Conquer Grey

hero colour (as seen on everything from Audis to Hyundais these days) plus Frozen White. Lightning Blue, Race Red and Shadow Black. There’s also a lairy (but thankfully optional) tub decal pack.  Like we said — very different from your average XLT. Cheap 2018 Ford F-150

 

Bolstering the interior

Inside, the Ford Ranger Raptor adds heavily bolstered performance

Front seats with Conquer Grey leather and suede trim and Lightning Blue thread. There’s power adjustment of the driver’s seat, matching blue dash-top stitching and matching grey air-vent surrounds.

Other additions include red Raptor instruments, Raptor floor mats.

Ford Performance scuff plates and a multifunction leather steering wheel with red centre marker and.

For the first time in a Ranger, paddle shifters.

There is still no reach adjustment.

Along with switchable 2H/4H/4L drive modes. The off-road-ready ute’s party trick is a six-mode.

Terrain Management System comprising two on-road modes (Normal and Sport) and four off-road modes: Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Sand. Rock and the Raptor-exclusive Baja mode.

The new ‘party mode’ increases the stability traction control threshold and holds gears for longer.

 

Heart of the matter

Carry-over tech includes Ford’s 8.0-inch SYNC3 touch-screen infotainment with reversing camera, voice control.

Bluetooth and sat-nav, plus lane departure warning, lane-keep assist, traffic sign recognition,

hill-descent and hill-start control. Trailer sway control, roll-over mitigation and roll stability control are also part of the safety suite.

The Ford Ranger Raptor gets HID headlights and rear parking sensors and comes

with Ford Australia’s now-standard five-year, unlimited-km warranty and the same 12-month, 15,000km service intervals as all other Rangers.

The bad news is first Australian deliveries won’t take place until October 2018.

So with about 1000 customers already in the queue and.

Demand exceeding supply across the Asia Pacific region, order now and

you’ll inevitably have to wait until next year to drive one away.
