U.S. Market 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor In White: Photos

Roughly one year after its debut, the Ford Ranger Raptor is already on sale in a number of international markets, but won’t arrive in the U.S. until later this year for the 2024 model year. Regardless, Ford Authority spotted an international variant of the new Ranger Raptor driving around last year wearing Code Orange paint, and earlier this month, a very dirty, salt-covered U.S. market 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor. Now, Ford Authority has spotted another U.S. market 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor, this time finished in white.

A few weeks after the 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor was spotted coming off the assembly line at the Michigan Assembly plant, Ford Authority has come across this high-performance, off-road-focused pickup driving around with a couple of interesting features. First, we have our first sighting of the new Ranger Raptor’s American-style front license plate bracket, while the tailgate is finished in black – likely because this is a prototype.

Otherwise, this Ranger Raptor looks pretty much exactly like the U.S.-spec variants we’ve seen previously. That includes 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.

Unlike the Ranger Raptor spotted a few weeks ago, this one is not equipped with the “Raptor” graphic on the rear portion of its bedsides, however. Inside, the next-gen pickup features front sports seats, Code Orange accents, a 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, and Argentina, where the pickup generates 397 horsepower. 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 – which slots in the lineup above the Tremor – 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.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Oh there has been comments but they were censored

    Pretty disappointing honestly. The new ranger was supposed to be larger and roomier and yet it’s the exact same cab. And with the rumored price going up in line with all of Ford’s other prices, the new ZR2 Colorado looks more and more interesting…

    1. Dane

      Enjoy the 1/5 Star reliability on GMC / Chevy products.

    2. Andy

      I have one in Australia and having owned 4 new Rangers in a row this version is 10 times the car in every way! There is Zero disappointment I assure you.

      1. RWFA

        Cool to hear some feedback from down under.

        I bet Mr Pickford is happy not to be alone here!

    3. Tom

      Genuine question here: a larger Ford truck already exists, in the F150. Why not just get that instead of pushing the Ranger into the F150’s space?

  3. Whom

    Yeah, white ain’t it. Paint it a fun color with some graphics and it’ll probably look better. I’m really just disappointed in the 6g Ranger design overall. The Raptor model does look the better tho.

    1. RWFA

      Yes, because you can have it in any color as long as it’s Good Humor truck white.

  4. Angel

    El ranger raptor es una mierda la colorado zr2 es mucho mejor sobre todo el desert boss

  5. Dan

    Go ahead and buy that Colorado be ready to rent a ranger while Chevy replaces your lifters a few times before you realize that GM stands for China made garbage, I know because I have one of those cheap GM products.

    Ordered this fantastic new Ranger Raptor in Belgium in black with the sportsbar and electrical shutter. This white one looks to ‘normal’. Downside here in Belgium are the environmental regulations… only 288hp… Love USA style cars. Next one will probably the Ranger Lightning 😉

    1. RWFA

      It’s highly likely given BEV will make homologation a snap.

    The 2024 Ranger should come out just in time to compete with the 2024 Tacoma. I don’t know if Toyota will have a match for the Raptor though. The current TRD Pro is more comparable to the Tremor in capability, in my opinion. This Raptor will likely move right to the top of the mid-size truck segment in terms of off-road capability – past the Gladiator.

      I saw (on YouTube) yesterday that a Dealer in MI said the order banks for the new Rangers will open in August/September of this year. I was hoping it would be a few months earlier.

    It’s still bland/dated beyond the Raptor treatment, but this is a good looking midsize truck, with the notable exception of the interior. I’m okay with the big screen, but it’s that dash-top with the prominent nanny-light binnacle that really spoils the view.

  9. Bowen

    This was raced vs Ram TRX and was only beaten by a split second. So it should be as fast as the new F150 Raptor R. Even though down on power, its much lighter.
