Toyota Preps Tacoma TRD For Ford Ranger Raptor!

By  | 

It is no secret that Ford is developing the next-gen Ranger and the vehicle is confirmed to come out in the US next year. The Ranger’s return in Ford’s home market will see the pickup truck competing against the Toyota Tacoma and it will also do one better by having the insane Raptor variant.

Seeing that the Ford F-150 Raptor is able to offer an unbeatable performance, we can’t help but to have high expectations for the Ranger Raptor.

Today, things got more interesting when Toyota publically acknowledged the threat that is with the Ranger Raptor and they revealed on their desire to compete. Toyota shared that they will start off by developing their most insane midsized pickup truck yet through the Hilux in the global market.

Dubbed as the Hilux TRD, the vehicle is teased to arrive with a supercharger that will boost the overall performance. The Hilux TRD will be tested against the Ranger Raptor in Australia and if all goes well, we can fully expect the Tacoma TRD to receive a similar upgrade.
