2019 Ford Ranger Raptor Unconvinced By Diesel Extinction!

By  | 

The past couple of years or so have witnessed a sharp decline in the production of diesel-powered vehicles and this is due to the emission scandal which the powertrain-type has been involved in.

Even so, Ford cannot be bothered by the poor prospects of diesels as they still believe that the upcoming Ranger Raptor will sell well with a diesel mill resting in its engine bay.

The midsized pickup truck scene does not have a powerful diesel-powered model and this can hand the Ranger Raptor and advantage in the market. Furthermore, the use of a diesel unit can also ensure that the Ranger Raptor can achieve unbeatable mileage.

Ford will need to be careful though because any emission slip-ups with the diesel-powered Ranger will only create trouble. The next-gen Ranger Raptor will be making its debut in the US at the LA Auto Show this year and we can expect to learn more about the diesel mill then.

    Ford your not selling engines….Your selling Ranger pickups.The solution is pretty simple to me………GIVE THE CUSTOMER WHAT THEY WANT!!! Offer three engines , the 4 gas , the 4 diesel and the V/6. You make all these engines already……Before I spend $40,000.00 plus….I want a choice !!!
