Based of these photos, and the fact that the Ranger will go on sale in late 2018 - is it possible that it will launch with a Raptor option rather than waiting an extra year for it - a la - F150 Raptor?

That's what I think will happen with Ford coming late to the midsize pickup market in the US.

Not really liking the Raptor name. Raptor already exists and it does not work as a sub brand imo. But then again, Ranger used to be a trim level in F-150. Oh, why not then.

Should be a great Detroit autoshow this year.
Can we get a Raptor Expedition too then? :-(

MY BODY IS READY

If they make a Bronco Raptor or next gen Escape Raptor, I would cry and mourn the loss of all of my money.

Bronco Raptor....dear god...life would be good. However, a hard decision between the Ranger Raptor and the Bronco Raptor.

Global Ranger Raptor debut is Feb 7th in Thailand. Does this mean tonight at midnight EST the US embargo will be lifted?

This is it! Overseas version of the Ranger Raptor. Will USA get the same truck? It looks fantastic! But i doubt that turbodiesel engine will go to America... Maybe an EcoBoost 2.0

I don’t think the US will get this, and if they do they won’t go backwards from the 2.7 to a 2.0.

There’s quite a backlash on social media due to it only having a 2 litre diesel, and I think that criticism is warranted. For the life of me I can’t understand how Ford missed the opportunity to use the V6 Powerstroke. VW Amarok has a 600Nm diesel that easily outdoes this top of the line’s milk bottle.

As a total package though it won’t have many competitors. They would have hit a home run had they used the V6.
