The Ford Ranger Raptor is a performance truck that’s equipped with a 2.0-liter bi-turbo diesel engine that puts out 210 hp and 500 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. It also comes with Fox shock absorbers that give the Ranger Raptor the ability to drive through rough terrain at high speeds.

Moreover, Ford’s performance pickup truck is integrated with a Terrain Management System that offers six preset driving modes at the turn of a dial. It includes driving modes such as Sport, Weather, Mud/Sand, Rock Crawl, Normal, and Baja. The Baja driving mode is probably the most notable among the six pre-set options as it allows the Ranger Raptor for high-speed desert running.
