Ford has invested big in its South American lineup in recent months, adding a host of new models including the all-new Ford Territory to its offerings in countries such as Argentina while also investing heavily in the Pacheco Assembly plant to boost Ford Ranger production. Soon, it will be joined by the all-new, next-generation Ford Ranger Raptor, as Ford Authority previously reported, as the high-performance off-roader is set to launch there in May. Now, customers in Argentina that are interested in purchasing a new Ford Ranger Raptor can participate in a special pre-sale, which has already begun.
A grand total of 100 Ford Ranger Raptor pickups are available in this pre-sale for existing owners of current-gen models, though interested customers must visit their dealer to participate. All 100 units will be built in the May as the first batch off the assembly line, with an MSRP of $22,200,000 Argentine pesos ( $105,093 USD) and will be available in four colors – Metallic Orange, Performance Blue, Arctic White, and Stone Gray.
In Argentina, the Ford Ranger Raptor churns out 397 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque from its twin-turbocharged Ford 3.0L V6 EcoBoost, which is interesting because it produces 392 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque in every other 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.
Otherwise, there aren’t really any notable differences between the Ranger Raptor destined for Argentina and the rest of the world, as it still sports the same rugged exterior styling and fortified suspension, which includes aluminum upper and lower control arms, a long‑travel front and rear suspension, a refined Watt’s link rear end, and Fox 2.5-inch Live Valve internal bypass shocks.
We’ll have more on the Ranger Raptor soon, so be sure to subscribe to Ford Authority for the latest Ford Ranger news, Ford Ranger Raptor news, and continuous Ford news coverage.
