In one of its desert endurance tests, the Ford Ranger Raptor ran 1,600 km at full race speed on tracks where Ford engineers had deliberately sought out whoops, jumps, and chatter bumps to push the then-secret super truck to its limits. It was at this moment everybody realized that Ford had created a whole new class of an off-road vehicle.
It’s the combination of technology and high-performance off-road design that allows the Ranger Raptor to deliver unmatched driving dynamics. And, if the biturbo diesel engine and 10-speed transmission are Ranger Raptor’s heart, the all-new chassis and suspension are its soul.
To start, there is an extra 150 mm of track that allows loads more stability on high-speed corners. Front suspension is independent SLAs with aluminum arms, featuring Fox 2.5-inch internal bypass shock absorbers with position-sensitive damping. At the rear, there is a multi-link solid rear axle with Watt’s linkage, also featuring the position-sensitive damping Fox shocks.
With huge ventilated disk brakes and a red center marker on the steering wheel to ensure the driver knows which way the tires are pointing, the Ranger Raptor is primed to deliver the driving experience of a lifetime.
Experience Baja Mode
The Ranger Raptor’s Terrain Management System’s (TMS) Baja Mode is the pinnacle of the Ranger Raptor driving experience. Baja Mode is unique to the Raptor name and its Ford Performance DNA, which was inspired by the trucks used as course pre-runners in the Baja 1000 race.
Equipping a performance truck with this much cutting-edge suspension and technology offers benefits across drastically different uses. When driving around town, the Ranger Raptor’s suspension absorbs everything, making for a delightfully surprising comfortable and relaxing experience for everyday driving. On the other hand, its suspension can take on high-speeds over unforgiving terrains if need be.
The Ranger Raptor’s thrilling ride offers a one-of-a-kind experience, underpinned by a host of innovations in its chassis, Watt’s Link rear end, Fox shocks and damper settings, and the integration of the Terrain Management System and Baja Mode.
