Ford Ranger Raptor Pickup First Review, India launch
Ford Ranger Raptor India Launch Expected in 2021
Pickup trucks have not been very popular in India and while a few car-makers did try, most did not do well other than the Isuzu V-Cross which has done well for the lifestyle segment. Now Ford is looking to make its image more premium and launch a line of new imported cars under the 2500 homologation rule. One of the exciting imported products that Ford would bring is the Ranger Raptor pickup which is due to be launched next year. Here is an overview.
What is the Ranger Raptor?
It is not the regular pickup but a more performance and lifestyle based pickup which explains the Raptor part of the name. It is built for performance and gets off-road upgrades too. It is a lifestyle performance car that can go anywhere. It has a 283mm ground clearance and a massive 850mm water wading depth. The Range Raptor is basically a performance pickup version of the Endeavour SUV. The Raptor though will look different from the Endeavour thanks to a huge grille and different LED headlamps plus huge wheels and massive ground clearance.
What engine does the Ranger Raptor have?
The Ranger Raptor will come with a different engine from the Endeavour SUV being an import as it will have a 2.0L bi-turbo engine along with a 10-speed auto transmission plus it will have paddle-shifts. Power would be 210 bhp and 500Nm. It will also have a Terrain Management System which offers six pre-set driving modes. It will have all terrain tyres and proper race suspension along with more tech. The interior would be sportier with an all black cabin too.
Being a full import the Ranger Raptor would be more expensive and double than that of a Ford Endeavour hence expect a price of Rs 70-80 lakh which is expensive but the Ranger Raptor would be a limited edition import which is not built for big numbers.
