Ford’s penultimate launch for Brazil in 2023 has finally been revealed: the North American automaker will launch the Ranger Raptor here. It will join the 2.0 and V6 versions already available in Brazil, and will replace the Toyota Hilux GR Sport.

Overseas, the Ford Ranger Raptor is offered with a 2.0 twin-turbo four-cylinder diesel engine, which is weaker than the 3.0 V6 of the more expensive versions in Brazil. Moreover, it also loses out in terms of numbers to the 2.8 turbo four-cylinder engine of the Toyota Hilux GR Sport.

In total, there are 210 hp and 51 kg of torque, down from the 250 hp and 61.2 kg of torque of the V6. It may use the Argentine-based 3.5 V6 twin-turbocharged engine with 397 hp and 59.4 kgf/m. The gearbox is a ten-speed automatic, like all Rangers, but the Raptor will be equipped with a Fox brand suspension system, which is responsible for intelligently adjusting the damper through sensors in the wheels.

The shock absorbers are formulated with Teflon oil to reduce friction by 50% and have the property of increasing resistance in the last 25% of their travel stroke. Furthermore, it is wider and has tires designed for heavy off-road use, ensuring greater all-wheel drive capability.

Visually, the model has a hollow front bumper with a large portion of the frame exposed, a new front grille with the Ford name printed in large letters, as well as enlarged body and decals. Inside, it is finished in leather and Alcantara, as well as orange details.

Ford will release new information about the launch, technical specifications and equipment soon. What remains now is the uncertainty about what the brand’s final launch in the country will be in 2023. Bets are on something new for the Bronco Sport.
