New 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor Release Date, Colors, MPG – Just like the F-150 Raptor can soar through the air at breakneck speeds, the 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor can do the same, albeit on a smaller scale. Flared fenders, more rigid tires, increased ground clearance, and a distinctive grille are just some off-roading features coming to the Ranger. The Raptor version of the Ranger will share the same boxed ladder frame as the standard Ranger, but it will include a longer travel suspension for soaring over jumps and a more powerful engine for speedier desert runs. Ford will only provide one body design; a crew cab joined to a five-foot cargo box. The cabin needs some unique touches and a fully-featured media center.
Once the worldwide version of the Ranger Raptor was shown, Ford announced that it would be marketed in the United States. Even before the announcement was made, images of a prototype of the next-generation Ranger were taken while it was testing. Eventually, in 2019, you’ll be able to purchase the Raptor model from local dealers.
New 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor Redesign
The Ranger Raptor’s new, more aggressive appearance complements its improved performance. To accommodate its wider track, the Raptor sports hefty fender flares, a unique front fascia with massive, strong Ford branding, and a higher ride height. The standard Ranger’s C-shaped headlamp design is carried over here, with the clusters now sitting farther apart. Although the wheels are just 17 inches in diameter, the BFGoodrich KO2 all-terrain tires are enormous and Beadlock capable. Only a crew cab version of the Raptor will be sold, and it will come with a bevy of Raptor decals for individuals who want to draw attention to themselves despite the enormous 2.3 mm thick front bash plate. This car is easy to spot because of its unique design, which includes two tailpipes and a large Raptor logo.
We expect Ford’s Velocity Blue and Antimatter Blue paint colors to be distinctive colors for the Ranger Raptor, along with other striking Ford tones like Code Orange. A vehicle in what looks to be the model’s flagship color, Rapid Red, was included at the unveiling. The Ranger Raptor will be bigger than most other trucks in its size class while still being categorized as a midsize pickup. The outward proportions of the Ranger Raptor will go even farther from their existing basis on a wheelbase and track two inches longer and wider than the Ranger we know and love. While exact dimensions have not been released, we may assume that the wheelbase will remain at roughly 129 inches, but the body will grow by a few inches, perhaps around 80 inches, to allow a track to increase by even more inches. The largest difference will be in the ride height, with the long-travel shocks providing an extra two inches.
The inside of a rasterized Ranger will change slightly from a standard one. Although conventional fare includes plenty of hard plastics and some rubberized materials, Ford spruces up the interior with unique features. The international model’s front seats and door panels are padded and upholstered in leather and microsuede. The steering wheel should have a red band around the noon position to emphasize its performance focus and a set of aluminum paddle shifters. We expect it to include the same primary and extra options as the base vehicle, such as dual-zone automatic temperature control, heated front seats, remote start, and more. Only a crew cab model with a short bed (about 5 feet) will likely be offered for the Ranger Raptor.
Each Ranger Raptor should come standard with Ford’s newest Sync infotainment system, which runs on a touchscreen display eight inches in size. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot accessible through subscription would thus be considered factory-installed options. The widebody Ranger will likely have extras like satellite radio and a Bang & Olufsen sound system with 12 speakers and power outlets.
The 3.0-liter V-6 in the 2024 Ranger Raptor will be twin-turbocharged, producing 392 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. It’s possible, though, that those numbers change significantly from the American version. The Raptors will feature a firmer suspension and more robust off-road equipment than their street-legal counterparts. It includes wider front and rear tracks, larger 33-inch all-terrain tires, and a raised riding height. A 10-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive with locking front and rear differentials come standard, just like the Ford Bronco Raptor.
The 2024 Ranger Raptor’s EPA ratings are currently unavailable. We’ll revise this report whenever that occurs. Once we have the chance to put one through our comprehensive testing process on our 75 mph highway fuel-economy route, we will also disclose its real-world mpg. Check the EPA’s website for specifics on the Raptor’s gas mileage.
New 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor Release Date and Price
Ford CEO Jim Farley only confirmed the Ranger Raptor will arrive in the United States in 2024, despite the truck’s being teased with the global debut of the new Ranger pickup truck. In 2024, the Ford Ranger Raptor will cost more than any other Ranger model. It has been reported that the starting MSRP would be $52,500, but given the cost of the Bronco Raptor, we wouldn’t be shocked to see it increase above $60,000. Expect the 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor to go on sale in the summer in the United States.
