Render Vs. Reality: How the Real Ranger Raptor Matches Our Guess

Ford is ready to slay all expectations with the 2019 Ranger Raptor image

IT'S time for Ford fans to get their Raptor on.

Today, Ford officially revealed the Ranger Raptor, an extreme off-road version of its popular midsize pickup truck. For that, stay with us on more news regarding the Ranger Raptor as it's released.

Ground clearance is increased to 283mm, giving the new Ranger Raptor an approach angle of 32.5°, ramp over angle of 24°, and departure angle of 24°.

Under the skin is a chassis frame tailored to high-speed use off-road, new coilover rear suspension using a Watt's link setup and solid rear axle, and stiffened side rails.

That power equates to 157kW, with torque dropping in at 500Nm. Like "lesser" Rangers, the Ranger Raptor's engine is hooked up to a 10-speed automatic transmission. There had been whispers of a petrol version (based on the US F-150 Raptor's 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol: 336kW/690Nm) and that may still be possibility, but not at this stage - or so Ford officials say.

Like the F-150, the Ranger Raptor gets six electronically-controlled driving modes-Normal, Sport, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Sand, Rock, and Baja-to help you drive through virtually any terrain. The result is the menacing vehicle by Ford Performance that's laid before you. The steel front bumper adds LED lighting and new aerodynamic air curtains.

A limited range of paint colours are available including lightning blue, racing red, shadow black, frozen white and unique conquer grey hero colour with contrasting grey ascents.

The vehicle is bigger than a garden variety Ranger, measuring 1873mm tall, 2180mm wide and 5398mm long, with wider front and rear tracks at 1710mm.

At the rear, a modified rear bumper comes with an integrated tow bar and two recovery hooks rated at 3800kg, the front hooks are rated to 4500kg. Updated styling to the rear includes flush sensor bezels and specially packaged and styled tow connectors. Towing capacity is limited to 2500 kilograms, down 1000kg on the Wildtrak.

Inside, Ranger Raptor offers a tailored Ford Performance DNA interior design with a high level of craftsmanship, harmonious colours and durable materials suitable for both off-road driving and everyday use.

The gold standard for high-speed off-road truck suspension has been the Raptor since it debuted in 2009.

Beyond the blue stitching and leather accents, there's a new steering wheel with magnesium shift paddles. The F-150 Raptor is in a whole other class with its EcoBoost V6 producing 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque, but it's a full-size truck, so it doesn't really count here, considering how much more mass it has to schlep around. Not too long before we predicted that Ford's new CEO, Jim Hackett, would make a bunch of stupid assumptions about millenials, double down on truck-buying bubbas, and let the company get left behind, tech-wise, so that he could pull off a cynical and short-sighted cash grab before leaping into retirement under a golden parachute woven together with UAW pension money ... but only most of that has already happened, so I'll hold off on another "I told you so", for now. Just look at the extra sheet metal on the edges of the headlights.

The Satellite Navigation System comes into its own when off-roading in remote areas, even offering a "breadcrumb" feature to leave a trail when entering un-chartered areas - ideal for the serious off-roader.
