The Ford Ranger Raptor X
Now, we’ve previously talked about this special edition Raptor. It was first released in Australia, then in Europe. As for the version we’re receiving in the local market, it will definitely appear identical with the said versions.
On the outside, it will bear some visual upgrades including body stripes over the hood, as well as a Matte Black Carbon Twill texture, which is framed by Searing Red Keyline graphics on the doors and rear quarter panel. Apart from that, the truck’s grille, bumper cover, tailgate, fender vents, fog light bezels, and door handles are given a matte black finish.
The Ranger Raptor X in Conquer Gray
There are also multiple colors to choose from for the Ford Ranger Raptor X. It will come available in Arctic White, Conquer Gray, and Performance Blue.
Apart from the exterior styling upgrades, the Ranger Raptor X also gets additional accessories. These include a set of matte black wheels wrapped with BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires, and an extended leg sports bar. The front-end will also come with red-colored front tow hooks to complete the look of the Ranger Raptor X.
Inside the Ranger Raptor X
Inside, Ford also gave the Ranger Raptor X body-contoured sport seats, which will help keep you planted during spirited driving. Most of its interior also has red stitching, and the air-conditioning vents are given chrome accents.
As for mechanical bits, the Ford Ranger Raptor X uses the same 2.0-liter Biturbo diesel engine that the regular Raptor uses. At most, this mill can make up to 210 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque. It is then paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to a 4x4 drivetrain. And of course, it also comes with the 2.5-inch FOX Racing shocks, as well as Ford’s Terrain Management System.
The upcoming Wildtrak variant with the electronic roller
Apart from the Ranger Raptor X, Ford Philippine also announced the availability of the new Ranger Wildtrak 4x4 with a power roller shutter. With this accessory, you can say goodbye to getting your cargo wet under the rain during this rainy season. Of note, this Wildtrak variant will have a price tag of Php 1,728,000.
