The Ranger Raptor is finally making its way to North America.
Introduced all the way back in 2018 in Europe, the Ranger Raptor has dodged North America for quite some time. Now, years later, the 2023 Ford Raptor Ranger will be available in the USA and Canada, marking the first the new Raptor will be available in North America. This announcement comes from the Twitter account of Ford CEO Jim Farley.
In Farley’s tweet, he also linked to a YouTube video that gives us a bit more information on the new Ford Raptor Ranger. The most important tidbit is the fact that the new 2023 Ranger Raptor will be powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. In a press release for the European market from Ford, the exact details of this engine are provided.
The new 2023 Ranger Raptor’s engine will be detuned so that it provides the driver with 288 horsepower and 362 lb-ft of torque. Mated to this engine will be a ten-speed automatic transmission. Other notable details include the FOX 2.5-inch Live Valve shock absorbers and a new full-time four-wheel-drive system that includes locking front and rear differentials.
Expect the new 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor to be in the United States and Canada next year. There’s also no word on pricing just yet.
