Two weeks ago, Ford announced that the Ford Ranger Raptor 2018 would hit Asia-Pacific next year. However, no official announcement yet on whether or not the Philippines will be among the next destinations for the all-new Ford pick-up truck.
Guys, we’ve been waiting this moment all year long. Well, brace yourself, the highly-tuned pickup will make its debut in the Philippines in late 2018.
According to newly-appointed Managing Director of Ford Philippines Bertrand Lessard, their brand-new high-performance pickup will be seeing daylight in the Philippines’ roads sometime in the near future, likely late 2018 or early 2019. The Blue Oval brand added that Filipino Ranger Raptor fans should wait for an official announcement with regard to the Ford Ranger Raptor 2018’s inner workings. However, rumor has it that the new and distinctive truck will be a mix of Ranger versatility and Raptor ability and come with a beefed-up suspension system and engine.
Ford Ranger Raptor 2018 confirmed for the Philippines
Initial pictures found through social media show off an increased ride height, thicker all-terrain tires, and probably Fox dampers. Accurate information about its powertrains remains a mystery though it may well likely be powered by an EcoBoost engine paired with the advanced 10-speed automatic transmission.
If this is indeed our upcoming Ford Ranger Raptor 2018, then this truck won’t be just a normal pick-up that gets design inspiration to make the owner’s off-road beast look. Watch the video below and get to know more about the highly-tuned pick-up.
