North American 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor Spotted At MAP

The all-new, next-generation Ford Ranger launched in a number of international markets last year ahead of its arrival in the U.S. later this year for the 2024 model year. In the months since then, Ford Authority has spotted a handful of prototypes out and about, including a possible Tremor SuperCab, an extended wheelbase model, and a North American spec pickup that’s wearing absolutely zero camouflage. Now, nearly one year after its debut, the high-performance 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor has been spied by Ranger6G coming off the assembly line at the Michigan Assembly plant.

This particular early build doesn’t look much different from its international counterpart, which is already on sale in various other parts of the world, as expected. Finished in what appears to be Cactus Gray exterior paint, this 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor is otherwise equipped with familiar styling cues such as flared wheel arches, a front grille with ‘Ford” lettering, C-clamp headlights, matrix LED headlights with LED daytime running lights, functional air vents, cast-aluminum side steps, LED taillights, and unique 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires.

What’s particularly interesting about these new photos is that they aren’t limited to the outside, either – we also have a couple of shots of the interior, which shows off the Ranger Raptor’s front sports seats, Code Orange accents, 12.4‑inch all-digital cluster, and a 12-inch vertically-oriented center touchscreen running Sync 4A.

As far as powertrains go, the new Ranger Raptor features the twin-turbocharged Ford 3.0L V6 EcoBoost, which produces 392 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque in every market except for Europe, where it generates 284 horsepower and 362 pound-feet. In all markets, the mid-size off-roader utilizes Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission.

Barring any unforeseen changes, the North American-spec 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor seems to be essentially identical to its international brethren in many ways. FoMoCo has already ramped up production of the new model in those markets, and given the fact that this will mark the very first time American buyers can get their hands on a Ranger Raptor, it should prove to be quite popular in that part of the world, too.

    Man that would be a great truck with a Coyote under the hood.

      I own a 3.5 TT and have driven the 3.0 TT. They are both great engines. The coyote is a great engine as well, and while it does sound far better, it doesn’t drive any better….or worse…

      Ford Australia actually commissioned some to be built but in the end the factory versions were canned as it’s got more than enough grunt to easily see off any other similar sized truck. There’s a lot of the old model, your current model with the coyotes strapped in and no doubt there’s a few rodders out there fitting V8s in this new generation. Personally I’d love to see Ford build a Ranger in the mould of the old lightening f truck, AWD, a low rider in the super cab, not sure what you call them in the US but the one with the full size front doors and suicide rear half doors. In Australia they’d be snapped up by those still driving the 5-15 year old Commodore V8 and turbo i6/V8 Falcon “utes”.

      I doubt that will happen especially considering that the basic cab structure appears to be pretty much a carry-over from the current model.

    I was hoping for amber marker lights and a bed camera…. Let’s hope it has cooled seats at least…

      Not sure what you’ll get in the US but the rest of the world gets (cold air) ventilated seats not liquid cooled seats.

      If Ford doesn’t offer the lights and camera I’m sure the aftermarket will.

    Beautiful truck, but at $60K+, I will probably “settle” for an XLT Tremor.

      In Canada it will probably top $90 to $100 k. Out of reach for many.

    Why would you run the exhaust pipes all the way to the rear bumper on an intended off-roader? SMH.

    Reply
    1. David Pickford

      Most countries require exhausts to only exit to the rear and to extend beyond the bumper. I’m assuming this would be the same in the US to pass EPA drive by noise levels.

    Looks pretty good outside and it should be a screamer! Not a big fan of the dashboard design, especially the prominent strip of warning lights on the top of the dashboard which is a very odd thing to emphasize.

    Correct…..this vehicle is way over priced for what you are getting for your money. A Chevy truck offers more for your money and has less recalls from design and quality products standards.

    Kinda shocking that Ford would allow this much detail to be shown of a vehicle that has not been officially announced for the North American market. I get it that this is essentially the same truck that is already on sale in other markets so there is nothing earth shattering about it but this is not how Ford normally operates. Cool none the less. Just hope I can afford the dealer “adjustments”.

    When can we expect an explorer raptor with more Horsepower than the current St explorer?

    Over priced and ultimately not sustainable from a business point of view. GM said it has no plans to build their version of a Raptor…. not for good reason. It is not going to carry Ford’s fortunes into the future. It does seem to reflect Ford’s niche marketing strategy. Question is how long will the F150, Maverick and Bronco carry the company fortunes? When the music stops, the party will be over and Ford will have a real mess to clean up. To few products in a very narrowly focused portfolio.

    Are they selling this? It looks like not for average consumer because of the price. Bad timing for this year and next year due to layoff which more and more. Maybe some other brand have better offer and price.
