Did you post the right link or just not read it, because it clearly stated that Raptor Ranger would be a great fit for US, although stopping short of confirming it.

It will also get the 2.7L engine. That much I know for sure.

Re: Ranger Raptor Spy Pics

I'm not sure how @Assimilator got that they will NOT bring it to the US!? If you read the article, it **** near says the complete opposite. I just hope they announce it ASAP. I want a Ranger Raptor.

Re: Ranger Raptor Spy Pics

He is clearly just speculating that the Ranger Raptor would do good in the US and what he thinks it would need to do good in the US, but here is the quote...

Quote:
All these clues point to a strong possibility of the Ranger Raptor heading to the U.S. But it’s still an uncertain prospect, and if it does come to the U.S., it could be quite some time before we see it. “We haven’t said anything about availability in the U.S., our first priority is to get a Raptor available to everyone on the planet earth. So Americans already have an F-150 Raptor, we’ve got to spread Raptors to the rest of the planet.”
Again, it may come but it's not coming anytime soon and his speculative tone indicates they haven't done the work yet to make it US suitable. This is the exact tone Ford always uses for products that never come to the US or come years later.

And sorry wings, your info is never accurate and I'm pretty sure you just make it up on speculation. Not to mention you get SO much basic knowledge wrong. So I've learned long ago to ignore your rumor baiting.

Another stupid Ford decision. Ford management didnt learn from the mistake of stopping producing the Ranger in USA... now they will regret (within 4 or 5 years) of not having produced the Ranger Raptor.

Re: Ranger Raptor Spy Pics

I must be missing something. Ford exec says:

“Raptors are a slam dunk for the U.S.,” he said. “I think it [the Ranger Raptor] would do really well in the States.”

and somehow that's being interpreted as confirmation that the Ranger Raptor isn't coming here?

Gah, can you reread everything I just said. Why is this so hard?

Yes, you said there are no current plans. He did not. His words:

“We haven’t said anything about availability in the U.S., our first priority is to get a Raptor available to everyone on the planet earth. So Americans already have an F-150 Raptor, we’ve got to spread Raptors to the rest of the planet.”

In all the years you and I have been on this site, Borg, I could maybe only count on 2 hands the number of nice or otherwise positive things you've said to anyone about anything. Why are you so continually rude and contrary?
