The Ford Ranger Raptor gets a sportier Raptor X version
Still not available in America
For the Australians, this could sound like a little revenge. If they can't get the Ford Bronco, they will get a new version of the Ranger Raptor, the Ranger Raptor X. As a reminder, the Ranger Raptor is unavailable in many markets, including the United States, where it would have a good chance of selling.
Unfortunately, the changes won't make the Americans jealous. The Ranger Raptor X brings minor cosmetic changes to the already sporty Ranger Raptor. For example, the bodywork is painted white with various black stripes with orange accents on the bonnet, roof and bottom of the doors.
There are also two red tow hooks in the front skid plate. The vehicle is equipped with 17-inch wheels and BG Goodrich off-road tyres. The interior changes are minimalist, with special seats featuring red stitching.
Under the bonnet, the Ranger Raptor X keeps the Ranger Raptor's 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel with 213 PS and 500 Nm of torque. All this power is sent to all four wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission.
