Although much details have not been shared the spy shots have given bit details how the new 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor will look, now we got the latest photos from Ford. It is expected to be built on the T6 platform which is famous for reducing overall weight, improvised handling, and smooth riding experience. However, there is no news that just like it’s sibling 2019 Ranger, this new Raptor is going to be released in the United States or not?
2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Interior/Exterior
The new mid-sized truck Ford Ranger Raptor is expected to be a combination of power and styling. It is anticipated to have convenient features and classy interior trims. Something unusual found from the spy shots is the assembling of steering on the left-hand side, but the newest photos have steering on the right side (model for the Australian market). As it is based on F-150 Raptor, we can expect it to have specially designed thick bolstered seats along with big infotainment screen and new dashboard design.

Ford Ranger Raptor 2019 Engine
The new Ford Ranger Raptor 2018 will probably get a 2.0L Bi-Turbo diesel engine under its hood. The engine is expected to boost a power of 215 horsepower and torque around 367 pounds-feet or 500Nm of torque. Expect the engine to be paired up with the well known ten-speed automatic transmission. However, the six-speed automatic can be a cheaper option too. With such massive engine and tough exterior, it is anticipated to provide high mileage and great towing capacity.
Others possible engines could be, 2.0-Liter with 245 ponies, the smaller but powerful powertrain options. Furthermore, it should get the 2.3-liter engine with a lot of power, whole 350 ponies. The last petrol engine should be 2.7-liter V6 Ecoboost engine with the same amount of ponies.
Finally, there is a lot of rumors about the second diesel engine, that could be 3.2L turbocharged I-5 (five cylinders) with possible 197 hp and 346 lb-ft. We will soon find out what is the truth. The new Raptor will be available with the four-wheel drive system. The upcoming model is supposed to have a tweaked suspension for smooth handling on rough roads and off road’s traveling.
Price and Release date
The new 2019 Ranger Raptor will be available in the Australian market by the mid of 2018.
