1. Ford Ranger Raptor 2019 Philippines Review: Introduction

When Ford first announced that the Ranger would be getting a Raptor variant, many thought this was fake news. After all, Filipinos have been familiar with Raptor badge largely because it’s been attributed to the worst model of the iconic Ford F-150.

The Ranger Raptor is one good-looking monster

We, at Philkotse.com, already had reviewed the Australian-spec Ford Raptor 2019 review to predict what to expect in the upcoming 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Philippines.

Then the leaks came out. Yes, the Ford Raptor 2019 was real - and it was coming to the Philippines wearing the venerable badge previously seen exclusively on the F-150.

The imposing presence says it all

The current T6-designation Ranger has been a pioneer in the world of modern mid-size pickup trucks. Prior to this Ranger, these cars were looked upon as useful but otherwise bland beasts of burden. What advantage does a pickup truck have over, say, an SUV? 

Sure, it can haul five people, have basic amenities such as air-conditioning - but that was it. The Ranger proved that you can help your dad out with the family business by hauling stuff and still be cool in school.
