2019 Ford Raptor – Earlier this year, Ford confirmed plans to bring the medium-sized Ranger back to the US alongside a new Bronco. At the moment, it should arrive as a model 2019 and be a real hinged truck. But while many details are still in the air, it seems that Ford is already working on an off-road version of Raptor’s next medium-sized lift.
The forehead of the 2019 ford Raptor is more aggressive, and the wings wider than what he saw on previous prototypes. You can also see clearly that it rolls on the 285/70 R17 BF Goodrich All-Terrain TA tires, which are very close to what you get on the Rubicon Wrangler.
In what could be the first, this prototype also had camouflage under the body to hide the suspension. So even if we were able to take a few shots under the truck, there is not really much to see. Again, the fact that the testers were going to this kind of problem suggests that it might hide Ford’s response to the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 suspension.
Under the hood 2019 ford Raptor will be an engine with mumbo. Our photographer said it seemed very similar to an EcoBoost V6 F-150 and this makes sense, given that Ford recently upgraded this engine to the Raptor F-150 to pump 336kW of power and 690Nm of torque. The large F-150 uses the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 coupled to a gearbox co-developed with GM, a 10-speed speed.
It was announced earlier this year that Ford Ranger, the US market, will be sitting on the T6 platform developed by Ford Asia Pacific. The platform will be modified to support the American Ranger, plus the Bronco.
