blksn8k2........you dont think Aussies will export the US version back to Aussie given its most lkely going to have a higher horsepower engine?....


" Sizzler "...and 412hp is all you'll ever see from this engine.I'd rather have potential. The 5.0 is the very definition of being at death's door with no place to go. "Mettech"....Privately owned dealerships is so 19th Century.....Richard So, Dean, you gonna pull my words from your sig?. Sully (reg new Escape) Clearly, the Escape/Kuga/Vertrek/Fail will not sell in the same volume as the Escape does currently

jpd80....will be funny when you start  to see American Raptor Rangers hit Aussie shores with their drivetrain....wait...its GOING to happen....

Hey, I’d be happy with the 2.3 EB with a tune but really, global will
well a ton of 2.0 diesel Raptors around the globe, a gas engine would give some markets more choice

Ford can just put the 2.3 EB in the global Ranger in Thailand where Aussies get theirs

 

I don't think Ford will bother with RHD Ranger production in the US.

If its somehow more cost effective to do it here they will, especially if

A. The Bronco does end up being RHD

B. They do end up bringing the Everest to MAP.

What? What happened?

converting LHD to RHD is a pretty thriving business in Aussie/ New Zealand....

The price of a RHD  converted F150 Raptor is around AUS $185K - AUS$195K

A converted F250 XLT crew 6.7 4x4 is around $130K

You won't beat $9/day labor in Thailand plus they are already set up for both RHD and LHD production.

Dean, just wanted clarification of what you were saying.  ;)

 

BTW, I wouldn't be so sure there will be a North American version.

 

 

 

“To me, the most important thing now is that every human being in the world has access to a Raptor," Hameedi told us. "So, if it’s North America, you get an F-150 Raptor; the rest of the world, you get a Ranger Raptor."

My current rides:
07 Sport Trac Limited 4x4 V8
99 Mustang Cobra (Roush Body Kit)
75 Bronco (393 Windsor, NV3550 5-speed)
70 Mustang Mach 1 (428 CJ, 4-speed)
68 Cougar (390 GT, C6)
67 Ranchero (460, C6, Pro Street)

Except the ROW doesn't get F-150, period.  So therefore you're "stuck" with the Ranger Raptor.  Here we'll get both vehicles, so both Raptors are possible.

The rest of the automotive world that doesn't wear blue shaded glasses might disagree. And we may just be stuck with the F-150 as the only Raptor choice since nobody needs both, based on how you choose to interpret Hameedi's response. 

 

Me thinks One Ford, if there ever was such a thing, went out the door right behind Mulally.

You can't One Ford regional specific products, especially a cash cow like F truck

but providing certain versions to other regions can be quite lucrative...
