2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Prospects Raised With Diesel Offering!

By  | 

There have been a lot of talks claiming that the US-bound Ford Ranger Raptor will rely on a turbocharged diesel powertrain. Even Ford has refused to deny this possibility and this has left many excited to see what the diesel-powered pickup truck will have to offer.

Well, we can get a better idea of it today because the global Ford Ranger Raptor had just made its debut and it runs on a turbocharged diesel mill. The engine is a 2L twin-turbo 4-cylinder diesel unit that is tuned to offer 156kW and 500Nm of torque.

With so much torque to offer, the Ranger Raptor can offer some serious off-road performance and it can also impress on high-speed driving at normal roads.

Power is managed by the new 10-speed automatic gearbox and the outcome of it all certainly looks like a midsized pickup truck that is ready to set the US market ablaze. Will this be the outcome for the Ranger Raptor in the local scene?

    Ford you keep us in suspense regarding the “new” Ranger and then introduce a “new” Ranger you have been building for 3 years in other countries. You then produce the Ranger Raptor and sell it oversea’s and tell us it “may” come to the USA. I don’t know who Ford’s public relations director is but I think I’d “introduce” him oversea’s and keep him there. Can you imagine Henry Ford treating the American car buyer this way ? I think not. Your better than this Ford….I hope.
