For the North American region, the new 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor is set to meet the needs of that segment of the population. Needs are seen in the design and technical character. The new model will be based on the existing T6 platform. Ford has been preparing a return to the market for some time, this time the Ranger will see the brightness of the market in 2019. By some, that name will be named Bronco, but it remains to wait for us and see for ourselves this truth.
Although still photos are not available to confirm our story, spyware camcorders are always targeted by certain photographers. That’s how Ranger Raptor got into the target, and certain images were made that can serve to describe the design. CarAdvice from Australia has made an effort to get us a day on the photo issue. Information of a picturesque character is important to that extent, because the photograph says more than a thousand words. One of the models, such as the The Ranger FX4, is in production and gives way to the new 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor. Ford plans to launch the Ranger model for 2019, but not the Raptor model, which it will have to wait.
Unfortunately, the Americans will have to wait for the completion of another model and its debut. Maybe it’s not so bad, what is a long wait is sweet. For a long time, the F-150 Raptor was the design Ford relied on. The model under the 2015 F-150 has experienced the final changes and has shown that it can go forward with changes, but that old spirit of the vehicle remains. Ford Ranger Raptor 2019 expects and gives hope for something new.
Generally speaking, Ford takes care of the design, in a way that improves design as well as preserving the old design. The F-150 Raptor is a good example of Ford’s success. The Ranger Raptor will, after all, judge to follow his great cousin and try to walk his tracks on the outside design. The features and style of the F-150 will in all likelihood follow the model that is expected. If you take a closer look at the photographs that CarsAdvice has prepared, we can see what’s happening. The best assumption of the future looks is the combination of spy pictures and the 2017 F-150 Raptor.
The 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor, its front, the right bumper, the thick plate, and the hook for a tow, represent a part that relates to what was downloaded from the F-150 Raptor. These parts, which we have listed, are primarily functional and in this way they sing Raptor. If you plan to move out of the field, you will not have a problem because the bumper is designed to fit outside the field hinges and is additionally made of steel that gives it resistance. The front panel that has a plate and which is mounted on the bumper enables the protection of technical parts. The hooks owned by the new 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor are available as with the F-150 Raptor.
The front side also has grids that are also copied from the F-150 model. Raptor denounced Ford’s name in terms of signature. This is also present in other vehicle brands.
The design that the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor should have, will have esthetic and functional purpose. If we look at the side, it is easy to see cellular items that have a multiple purposes. The first purpose refers to the protection of switches and is intended as a slider, as well as only reducing the input of the vehicle. If we compare it with the predecessor, the new model should be a cheer dimension. The width of the tire is also higher and therefore the mudguards and tire protection must be significantly higher. BFGoodrich’s new (ish) All-Terrain T / A KO2 is a label for tires that have been used earlier, saying good tires on F-150 tires.
Of course, the difference between a truck in the size of a tire will exist. The Ford F-150 will have a 35-inch size, while the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor will have some 33 inches. It will cost some 17 inches in the dial. The wheels will come standard with aluminum material. Beadlock will be used to use outdoors. The luggage compartment will be comfortable and carry the Raptor tag. Spy photos point to mounting hooks, which confirms that they will find and up-production.
As always, so is the case now that there is no relevant information regarding the new Ford raptor model. We can only guess and suppose. Based on certain assumptions, we can see what are possible updates to the F-150. The F-150 Raptor should receive seats that are unique, with leather material. Thick supporters are another feature of new seats. And here the seats will have a special fabric that will give esthetic appearance. Regardless of the start of the wheels, the F1-style will be built here. These are some of the possible modifications. Of course, as the day of realization is closer, we will get more precise information about the vehicle and its design, from the outside and from the inside.
We also reached the driving force. In all likelihood, the F-150 Raptor will get a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 second generation, and one such engine right 450 horsepower with 510 pound-feet of torque. If we compare it to 3.5-liter EcoBoost we will see that it is for even 75 horsepower and more than 40 torques. But if we take into account that the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor is smaller and lighter, then why should this version be enough? During 2016, the F-150 will have its 375 horsepower available with 470 pound-feet of torque. Ranger Raptor will definitely have one engine that will be at a satisfactory level and customers will be more than satisfied.
In this case, the Ranger would have the driving power at an enviable level with 3.5-liter EcoBoost. There are certain doubts that the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 will be ideal i8 that everything will be according to plan. On the other hand, we have a 3.2-liter five-cylinder turbodiesel that will be a much more expensive option for the reason. The Global Ranger is known for the use of oil burners that Ford uses, which are relevant to US regulations as well as specifications. EPA is a standard with which Ford will not have problems.
Power transfer could be done thanks to an automatic gearbox with ten speeds. Yes, you’ve read well, ten speeds. The F-150 Raptor already has something in use like the F-150s with the standard 3.5-liter EcoBoost output. The offer will also find an automatic gearbox with six speeds. The choice will be more than sufficient. If we look at the 4WD system, there could be changes to the high-tech components. This means that the Ranger Raptor will have an electronic locking of the differential, as well as a limited slip differential. Controlling the F-150 Raptor when it comes to the T system, it can be done in two ways, manually thanks to a particular keypad placed on the instrument panel, and automatically having six modes of operation. Rock Crawl can activate 4WD Low, including a 4WD additional traction.
It is important to point out that there are certain deviations from the established way that Ranger Raptor has. This involves linking the last relay with Watt’s and springs that are more elastic and replacing the previous leaf springs. If we make a comparison with a RAM car, it is similar to the configuration with its cousins 1500 and 2500HD.

If you were expecting a price list, we do not currently have it. However, we can compare it with the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 whose price spins around $ 40,995. You have Extended Cab Colorado with 3.6-liter V-6 and still some accessories. You can also count on the 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel from other options. If we want to make a comparison, Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, which is an MSRP of $ 40,960, is among the more expensive.
If you want an automatic option, the exchange price is $ 42,960. 2017 F-150 Raptor and SuperCab price is $ 49,265. And it’s not possible to make a small difference between the Ford Raptor and the Ford F-150, because it would make no sense.
Our estimate is that the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor could start with $ 42,000.
