Last week, the new Ford Ranger Raptor Special Edition was teased ahead of its appearance during the second episode of Team Fordzilla‘s new Twitch show called “TFZ: TV,” which launched earlier this year, in a Spaghetti Western dubbed “The Good, the Bad, and the Bad-RSE.” Now, Ford has officially revealed the new limited edition version of its Ranger Raptor pickup ahead of its launch in Europe this coming fall.
“The new Ranger Raptor Special Edition adds even more dramatic style to our ‘bad-ass’ truck, with unique exterior touches and cabin enhancements that make our off-road performance pickup even more distinctive and desirable,” said Stefan Muenzinger, manager, Ford Performance, Ford of Europe. “Starring in its own Spaghetti Western movie is the perfect way to demonstrate Ranger Raptor Special Edition’s style and off-road capability.”
The Ford Ranger Raptor Special Edition is essentially just an appearance package, but it’s a rather good one. The limited-edition model is available in three exterior colors – Performance Blue, Conquer Gray, and Frozen White – and features dual matte black racing stripes with red pinstripes that span the hood, roof, and tailgate.
Additional exterior updates include red tow hooks and a matte black front grille, front and rear bumpers, fender flares, and door handles. Inside the cab, the Ranger Raptor Special Edition is adorned with high-grain leather seats, an exclusive Raceway Grey instrument panel, and red stitching on the steering wheel, door panels, and instrument panel.
Otherwise, the Ford Ranger Raptor Special Edition is identical to the regular Ranger Raptor, which means that it’s powered by FoMoCo’s 2.0L EcoBlue bi-turbo diesel engine that produces 210 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, which flows to either the rear or all four wheels via Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission. Other notable features include Fox shocks, double wishbones up front, a multi-link rear suspension, and General Grabber AT3 all-terrain tires.
