It’s well known Ford is developing a midsize pickup for the North American market based on the current T6 platform used on the global Ranger truck. In fact, Ford has officially announced the Ranger will return to America in 2019, along with the iconic Bronco name fitted to a Ranger-based, body-on-frame SUV. Yet hidden deep in the Outback of Australia roams a suspicious Ranger test mule with taller ground clearance, wider fenders, a stubby front bumper, and beefy tires. Could Ford be preparing a Raptor version of the Ranger? We certainly believe so.
The Australia-based CarAdvice managed to snag spy shots of this Ranger Raptor testing in full camouflage and with the steering wheel on the left-hand side – something not found on Australian vehicles. The photos are just the latest morsel of information. Adding to the argument was Ford’s trademarking of the Ranger Raptor and Ranger FX4 names with the Australian government back in 2015.The Ranger FX4 is already in production, leaving the Ranger Raptor name ready for its limelight. Sadly, U.S. consumers have some waiting to do. Ford is launching the Ranger for the 2019 model year, but the Raptor version might not debut at the same time. After all, Ford didn’t release the second-generation F-150 Raptor until two years after the completely redesigned, 2015 F-150 hit showrooms. Then again, Ford would be smart to launch the Ranger Raptor alongside the standard Ranger, giving the pickup a definitive halo model. But timelines aside, let’s look at what we believe to be the upcoming 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor.
