I have no doubt it will come here, in left hand drive and the 2.7 gasser as the engine. The question is when? I would guess in the 2nd model year for the US Ranger in somewhat limited numbers. We know there is a market for these types of trucks and Ford now cred to expand the Raptor offerings, as these are no poser trucks.

Just noticed the center stack on the dash-it looks kinda cheap IMO the button surround would look better in black.

I can tell you that the initial reception of the trucks n Aussie Forums is all negative.

Great concerns about long term durability of such a highly stressed engine (2.0 I-4 Diesel + 10AT)

 

85% of Rangers sold into the Australian market are the 3.2 I-5 diesel and if that goes so to will a lot of sales,

this market and buyers cannot and will not get their heads parts a 2.0 diesel being unacceptable in an near $80K truck.

While the truck looks great, the engne is going to be a huge issue for that market.

Hah! I can understand their negativity about "smaller is better".  When I look at the Aussie road trains, they make our US "Turnpike Doubles" look like Tonka toys!

As to the "negativity" is it just over the smaller motor???  If so that is easily corrected.

We know there is a market for these types of trucks and Ford now cred to expand the Raptor offerings, as these are no poser trucks.

That's what I'm thinking. The higher performance trimline, additional engines/transmissions, etc. are usually introduced in the second model year. Like with S197 Mustang where the Shelby GT500 came out in 2007 after the Mustang was out in 2005. I'm wondering about the timing here with the announcement in Thailand few hours ago and then the Chicago Auto Show press day just tomorrow. Announcement of American Ranger Raptor tomorrow? I doubt it but still tho... I will definitely be up past midnight to see what articles are published after embargo passes. I know that Edge Titanium Elite will be shown.


Hi! I used to have a red 1997 Ford Aspire 2-door hatchback but had to sell it due to my bad vision. As my vision got bad (I'm legally blind) I decided to stop driving altogether in 2000. I am still a Ford enthusiast and just love cars in general. :)

IMOit will come here....powertrain 2.7 eco boost. Good call, a HALO will draw attention to the lineup as a whole....curious though....how would the Aussies have reacted if the engine was the 2.7 eco-boost rather than the 2.0 diesee...JPD80?

It's a bit odd that Ford did not try to fit the 2.7 or 3.0 TDCI V6 in the Ranger. But I think the I5 is nearing the end of the road on emissions so it was going to be replaced anyway. And all things equal, I rather have a powerful I4 than a I5 if V6 is out of the question.

I bet were getting that new 2.0 twin turbo diesel here in America too, as in a past Mustang GT500 post there was a list of all 2020 FMC engines and it listed a 2.0 Diesel....I wondered if it was for front wheel drive vehicles but now it appears its for the Ranger!

Trust me, fhe expected $80,000 price tag in Australia is going to be a hard sell, especially with an I-4 diesel.

Do you guys normally pay twice as much for a vehicle then we do.  I realize there is some currency adjustments, currently US $1.00 =A$1.28 , but that is literally highway robbery.  Are there other taxes such as VAT that account for the differences. In general is cost of living really that high.  Next time I  pay $20.00 for 4 pack of Treehouse or Trillium, I will count my blessing

The AUS$80k number jdp80 mentioned would be inclusive of 10% VAT. So it is about AUS$73k before VAT or about US$56k. But I expect that to be fully loaded (Ford Australia doesn't do options packages like in the US). That is about what I expect US spec Raptor with all the options to cost. US price will likely start lower around $45k without options given that F-150 Raptor starts at $50k and goes past $60k real quick once fully loaded.

 

Personally, I don't expect the price to be AUS$80k. I'm guessing about 10% premium over the existing top of the line Ranger there (Wildtrak 4WD 3.2 automatic AUS$67k). So about AUS$73k (~US$52k which seems about right.)

 

Here is another example... Escape Titanium 2.0 Ecoboost AWD is AUS$49,308 (fully loaded no option packs available). So it is $45k before VAT or about US$35k. Basically the same as US - US spec Escape Titanium 2.0 Ecoboost AWD with tech package and sunroof is $34,800.

MSRP for a base Raptor is 50,000 give or take, what do estimate the us ranger raptor base to start, the same as an f150 raptor?

The US spec Ranger Raptor, if there is one, will probably start around $45k, and fully loaded around $55k. This is based on what Chevy Colorado ZR2 crew cab V6 costs (~$42k) but factor in Raptor-grade suspension upgrades and more standard equipment since ZR2 is more like FX4 than Raptor.

 

Also the US spec Ranger Raptor will most likely be a more powerful and faster truck than the rest of the world version (assuming 2.7 Ecoboost V6).

Looks like the tailgate lost the RANGER on the bottom. Wish that would carry over to the regular one. Also seems strange that the dash lost the little storage compartment on the top. I guess they dont want you putting things on the dash while your jumping sand dunes or what not. The IP looks like its also the one from the escape instead of the edge. Maybe they did this for the tach? Some of the switch gear is slightly different but it looks in line with what the ROW ranger already had. The center console arm rest is also different.
