A new Raptor designed for the Asia-Pacific market made its debut in February 2018 in Thailand. Recent spy photos have however revealed what is believed to be an updated version of this truck being tested near the Ford headquarters in Michigan. This is a left-hand-drive truck known as the 2020 Ford Ranger Raptor that is likely meant for other global markets including the US.

The exterior of this truck looks quite similar to that of the right-hand-drive model that was released in February. It features flashy fenders, thick tires, sufficient ground clearance, and a unique grille of the F-150 Raptor–style. The truck is expected to ride on six-spoke wheels just like its F-150 counterpart. A new graphics package that stretches from the tailgate to the rear door is among its key highlights. There is a brand new Raptor logo that has some grey, black, and white graphics.

A Sync 3 infotainment system with compatibility features for Android Auto and Apple Carplay is expected. The truck will also have an 8-inch center screen and a host of safety suite features.
The spied truck seems to adorn the same engine specifications of the 2019 model. This is a 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine whose horsepower capabilities is 210 hp while its torque capacity is 369 lb-ft.
