Ford Ranger Raptor 2020 - 2021 Overview
For quite some time, the Ford Ranger Raptor was being teased in the Philippine market. Ford Philippines promised that the Ranger would have a more powerful option – and that is the Raptor. Ford Raptor was built because Ford thought the Range is too plain for the local market. The Blue Oval decided to improve the model's power figures and volume and provide beefier bodywork and tires. The finished product is the Ford Ranger Raptor.
