Here’s a first look at the ’24 Ford Ranger Raptor completely undisguised.
Ford officially debuted the next-gen Ranger last February, but only showed the E.U. and Global trims. It was crickets when it came to the U.S. market other than a guarantee from Jim Farley that the Ranger Raptor would be on sale sometime in 2023.
Looking at these shots, the U.S. Ranger Raptor will be nearly identical to the Global Ranger Raptor. The only exterior differences we can see are a sliding rear window, a high-mount brake light, a backup camera and reflectors on the front fender flares. Inside, the U.S. Ranger Raptor looks identical to the global model, with not a single change in plain sight.
Powertrain options are expected to remain the same with a twin-turbo 3.0L V6 that’s said to make 392 hp and 430 lb.-ft. of torque, although those numbers may be brought in line with the Bronco Raptor (418 hp and 440 lb.-ft.).
Expect an official debut for the U.S. Ranger Raptor in the coming months.
