Ford Ranger Raptor X pick-up truck revealed features.
While the standard Ford Ranger Raptor is expected to launch in India sometime this year, Ford has introduced a more aggressive styling derivative of the 4×4 pickup in the Australian market. Called the Ford Ranger Raptor X, this version comes with a host of additions that make the Ranger Raptor stand out even more. The Ranger Raptor X is finished with matte black and red border decals that run across the hood, roof, and tailgate. There is another stripe on the sides.

Plus, the matte black covers most of the additional exterior trim that the Raptor already has with the grille, bumper, fenders, door handles, mirrors, and wheel caps, all finished in this material. The transferred wheel design also receives a similar treatment. To top it off are the red tow hooks and an extended sports bar on the loading dock.
The interiors also get a sportier makeover. The original blue stitching in the all-black cockpit has been replaced by red on the steering wheel and dash, while there are more black accents on the doors and dash.
The Ford Ranger Raptor X remains mechanically unchanged from the standard Raptor. Specific to the Raptor is a reinforced chassis and a unique chassis setup geared towards high-speed off-road driving. The rear suspension has been replaced by a new coil arrangement with an integrated Watt linkage for better lateral stability. The shocks are supplied by Fox, now 63.5mm wide, and offer variable damping while supported by aluminum control arms. Other highlights are improved brakes, a 60 percent thicker skid plate, and specially developed BF Goodrich 285/70 R17 tires.
These additions allow the Ranger Raptor a ground clearance of 283mm and a wading depth of 850mm. The 4×4 truck has an approach angle of 32.5 degrees, with ramp and departure angles of 24 degrees. The Ranger Raptor is powered by the 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel engine in its twin-turbo version, which generates 213 hp and 500 Nm while paired with the 10-speed automatic torque converter. Aside from the usual drive modes on the Endeavor and Ranger, the Raptor adds a Baja mode that enables high-speed off-road use.
The Ford Ranger Raptor X is unlikely to hit the Indian market and Ford is expected to start selling with the standard version, at least to begin with. The Ford Ranger Raptor is expected to be significantly more expensive than the related Ford Endeavor, possibly around Rs 70 lakh (ex-showroom). Originally expected to launch in the first quarter of 2021, the current surge in COVID-19 cases will invariably delay this launch schedule.
