    The hardcore FordRanger Raptor pickup truck – which shares a lot of its running gear with the Ford Endeavour–has gained a new limited-run trim with exterior styling differences.

    • Ford Ranger Raptor Special Edition gets black decals and bodywork
    • Interiors get cosmetic updates too
    • Powered by a 213hp, 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine

    Ford Ranger Raptor Special Edition: what’s new?

    Chief among the bespoke features for the Ranger Raptor Special Edition is a bespoke styling package, comprising racing-stripe decals, matt-black bodywork elements and red interior highlights.

    Leather seats are standard, and red stitching has been added to the steering wheel, the door cards and the bespoke Raceway Grey instrument panel.

    Racing stripes extend from the hood to the roof, along the lower body sides and across the rear wings and tailgate, while the front towhooks are coloured red. The wheel arches, door handles, rear bumpers and front grille are finished in matt black.

    Ford Ranger Raptor Special Edition: engine

    The special edition Ranger Raptor is powered by the same 2.0-litre, four-cylinder twin-turbocharged Ecoblue diesel engine found in the standard Ranger Raptor, producing 213hp and 500Nm of torque. The engine comes paired to a 10-speed automatic gearbox. It also retains the same aluminium double-wishbone suspension and performance chassis setup.

    The Ranger Raptor features a 150mm wider track and 51mm taller ride height than the standard Ranger XLT for greater off-road capability.

    Ford Ranger: India plans

    As we have previously reported, Ford is set to bring the outgoing Ranger Raptor to India as a CBU. The performance-oriented pickup truck has already been spotted undergoing tests in India. 

    Besides this, Ford is also working on a new C-SUV that is expected to be based on its Territory SUV, instead of the Mahindra XUV700 as originally planned, as the joint venture with Mahindra has been called off completely.
