Do you think there is a good reason to secretly test the new 2022 Ranger Raptor pickup on American roads, Although this model is only sold in the European and Australian markets?
Before talking about this top-performance version of the 2022 Raptor 2022, would like to remind you, dear ArabGT followers, of the advantages and disadvantages of the updated 2020 Ford Ranger pickup, which was previously test-driven by our colleague Karim Deeb in one episode of Test Drive program.
As American pick-up enthusiasts know, we are waiting for the launch of the all-new 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor and its smaller sibling, the2020 Ranger Raptor.
Today, we will show you a video posted on TFLnow on YouTube showing what seems to be a prototype of the upcoming 2022 Ford Ranger Raptor model:
The Raptor version of the 2022 Ford Ranger pickup is likely to be powered by an engine borrowed from the 2020 Explorer ST, a twin-turbo 3.0L V6 generating 400-hp and 562 Nm of torque, and is connected to a 10-speed automatic gearbox. The current model of this pick-up is powered by a two-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine with a twin-turbo that produces 210 hp and 500 Newton meters of torque.
Since the attached video within this article was filmed in America, we would like to note that diesel engines are not very popular in the American market, unlike the European market and the Australian market, where Ranger Raptor trucks are currently being sold, which makes us think that the rumor of a gasoline engine in this model was spread be In order to market this model its homeland America, but there is no official information confirming these expectations.
As soon as our team at ArabGT gets official information about these new pick-up vehicles, we will provide them to you immediately, God willing.
