Ford Ranger Raptor is FINALLY Coming to the United States – This Thing is NUTS!
For those who didn’t know, yes, Ford has taken the characteristics of the F-150 Raptor and applied them to its smaller Ford Ranger model. This seems to be something that fans of the Raptor have been clamoring about for years and years. Unbeknownst to many Americans, the idea has actually been in production since 2019 abroad and for those who have been aware of its existence, they couldn’t help but wonder why Ford has never brought this thing to the states.
Later this year, we will see the 2024 model year Ranger Raptor finally touch American soil. It’s been a long time coming and fans of the midsize truck segment are excited to say the least.
It seems as if this versatile group of off-road-oriented pickup trucks has been led for quite some time by the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro in terms of capability. However, in 2024 and beyond, the Ranger Raptor promises to be hot on Toyota’s heels, offering up a package that’s going to be hard to not get excited about.
In fact, we might even argue that the entire segment has been getting a lot of attention recently. Aside from Ford introducing this midsize monster to the American market, we have seen the Chevrolet Colorado come a long way with its ZR2 package. In addition, Jeep has thrown its hat in the ring with the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. As the brand that hosts the king of off-roading with its Wrangler model, we wouldn’t count Jeep out as a potential class favorite just yet.
Below, the crew over at TFLoffroad got their hands on the 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor and they gave us the complete rundown of what to expect with this truck versus the rest of the class. While we won’t officially see the model until later this year but this tour and others like it are certainly going to draw a lot of attention because it seems like this small but mighty pick up has a lot to offer.
