Re: Ranger Raptor Spy Pics
Petrol engine likely for US Ranger Raptor
Drive.com.AU - Alex Rae - 09 Feb 2018
...Development of the Ranger Raptor began three years ago with a substantial amount of work performed in Australia, where the Broadmeadows-based design team penned some of its lines, influenced from the F-150 version, and the engineering team performed extensive development at Ford’s You Yangs testing grounds.
Final vehicle testing also took place around Alice Springs as well as Borrego Springs in California.
Introducing the smaller Raptor to the States shouldn’t be a challenge with the Ranger line-up already available there, but it could be sometime until it joins the stable.
“We haven’t said anything about availability in the US, 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.”
Ford is unveiling several 2018 models in my country, the first confirmed to appear at the Manila International Auto Show is the aluminum Expedition. Hope they'd also include the Ranger Raptor and 2018 Mustang, want to see those in the metal too (other models to be launched in the first half of 2018 here are the refreshed EcoSport, refreshed Ranger, and refreshed Everest).
I know Ford always gets the largest Auto Show floor space (do they do this everywhere?)
