The images we're about to show you will tell you that it isn't just the Ranger Raptor you should be excited about. This is because Ford Thailand is testing what seemed to be a facelift for the Ranger pickup truck.
The Ranger has been spotted driving around Pluakdaeng, Rayong by a Thai Ford Ranger Club member and was posted on Headlightmag website. Although the changes on the pickup's fascia are minor, this version features a simpler chrome grille that doesn't drop all the way down on the front bumper. The grille was also redesigned, as there are now 2 split bars holding the emblem.
Another thing noticeable on the facelifted Ranger's bare test unit is the 'Limited' badge found on the lower front door panel. This could be a higher variant than the XLT, apart from the Wildtrak and FX4 that are sold here as well.
There are currently 2 engines that power the Ranger in the local market: a 2.2L and a larger 3.2L option for the Wildtrack 4x4. As to what Headlightmag said in their blog, there will be no changes on the power plant so we don't need to expect any changes in its power ratings.
Meanwhile, the Thai motoring blog site said that the Ranger Raptor is foreseen to bear a new 2.0L EcoBlue twin turbodiesel engine. This, we'll have to wait for further announcement by Ford. As for now, feel free to examine the spy shots above.
Quite a sad exhibit but hey, at least now we know.
This is a good a time as any to get your hands on a Honda.
Details are still vague at this point, but we’re already excited.
