2022 Ford Ranger Raptor Concept Revealed
With the coming 2022 Ford Ranger preparing to bounce over into the market, bits of gossip have been twirling for quite a while about if Ford would use its F-150 Raptor styling and capacity into the littler 4×4 pickup truck field, particularly now that Chevrolet just brought back its own exceptionally fit Colorado ZR2. Our covert agent shooters are speculating this new, vigorously disguised Ford moderate size pickup is something other than another FX4 bundle.
This is evidence that the Ford Ranger Raptor is bound to wind up reality and isn’t simply Nessie-like legends. Found testing on Ford’s Dearborn test track in Michigan, these photographs give us our first take a gander at what we accept to be the Ranger Raptor.
The Ranger will come back to the U.S. following a 10-year nonattendance in 2022 as a fair size pickup to rival any semblance of the Chevy Colorado ZR2 and the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro. To match those trucks’ rough terrain prepared variations, a toughened-up adaptation of the new Ranger may receive the Raptor nameplate from the F-150.
This model highlights a forceful front end contrasted with other 2022 Ranger models we’ve seen, with regards to the F-150 Raptor’s changed bumper styling. Different changes are probably going to spin around stuns, tires, an expanded ride tallness and an all the more effective motor. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 might be detuned for the Ranger, or it might utilize an adaptation of the littler 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 additionally found in the F-150. The Ranger Raptor is probably going to be mated to the new 10-speed programmed co-created with GM.
“Hope to see a Ranger Raptor at some point well after the standard models show up for the 2022 model year.”
We adore the fullsize Ford Raptor. It’s one of our most loved pickup trucks, and all things considered. It depends on the guts of the F-150, which implies it’s agreeable, sturdy, and fit for pulling pretty much anything an American family could ever need to move. Thing is, it’s needless excess. Greater, badder, speedier, more grounded… every single good thing, however here and there the best things are best experienced with some restraint.
Enter the Ranger Raptor. We know it’s coming, we simply don’t know precisely when, or what sort of changes it will brag over the current worldwide Ranger that we flew the distance to Australia to take for an expanded turn around the Outback. Regardless, however, we anticipate that it will flabbergast, and its one-estimate littler impression will make it an appealing alternative for any individual who doesn’t need or need a fullsize pickup.
2022 Ford Ranger Engine Specs
Power will without a doubt originate from sort kind of EcoBoost motor. A turbocharged four-chamber is conceivable, yet we think the brilliant cash is on in any event the accessibility of a bigger six like the 2.7-liter EcoBoost that is now accessible in the bigger F-150 arrangement. A programmed transmission driving every one of the four wheels is a certain thing, and however we don’t know without a doubt, a 10-speed programmed is a strong probability since we know it’ll rush up to Ford’s present scope of motors and should fit in the Ranger skeleton.
Be that as it may, the powertrain is just piece of the Raptor determination. An augmented suspension framework with an arrangement of bespoke stuns with something close to a foot of travel is likewise a vital part of the rough terrain pickup section. A major arrangement of substantial tires is additionally a beyond any doubt thing. The greater part of that will make for a more extensive position than road one-sided Ranger trucks, however despite everything it’ll be a considerably tidier bundle than the F-150 Raptor.
2022 Ford Ranger Interior
Nobody outside of Ford has caught a look at the 2022 Ford Ranger Raptor‘s inside, so it’s difficult to precisely think about what Ford is arranging. In any case, we can guess on Raptor-particular updates by contrasting the standard F-150 with its Raptor rendition.
Here, the F-150 Raptor gets one of a kind seats with thicker reinforces and cowhide emphasize boards. Fabric seats come standard, yet have a one of a kind example that separate it from lesser F-150 models. The guiding wheel is likewise Raptor-particular on account of a red on-focus marker at 12 O’clock, red difference sewing, and thicker holds at 10 and 2 O’clock. In the driver’s seat are gigantic F1-style paddle shifters mounted to the segment, which protects their area paying little respect to wheel development.
As stated, these are the sort of updates we can hope to discover on a Raptorized adaptation of the Ranger pickup. What’s more, by 2022, or with an end goal to oblige U.S. purchasers, the Ranger’s inside could see monstrous enhancements with redesigned in-dash innovation and bigger screens, better materials, and styling prompts imparted to the F-150.

It’s almost difficult to nail down valuing now, yet anticipate that Ford will straightforwardly rival the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, which conveys a base cost of $40,995. That gets you the Extended Cab Colorado with the 3.6-liter V-6 motor and all the rough terrain treats. Choices incorporate the Crew Cab and 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel.

At present, the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro is the most costly pickup in the superior, rough terrain fair size classification with a base MSRP of $40,960 for the manual transmission and $42,960 for the programmed transmission.
Actually, Ford can’t charge excessively for the Ranger Raptor, as it would limit the hole amongst itself and the F-150 Raptor. Passage charges $49,265 for the 2018 F-150 Raptor in SuperCab frame. Our wager figure has the 2019 Ranger Raptor beginning around $42,000.
