The Ford Raptor is one of the most creative and successful vehicles in recent memory, a joyous interpretation of what a performance car is. But as second generation Raptors now prowl our nation’s highways and byways one shortcoming (lol) has become clear: The Raptor is too big.
It would appear that while the Ford Motor Company gave the new diesel Raptor Ranger a 10-speed automatic gearbox, it also examined some more extreme options. Like 13 gears! Can you imagine? Let me be clear here that I believe 13 gears is too many gears.
The 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor has finally been revealed in its final form, and even though we don’t have a full spec sheet yet we can compare quite a few metrics between this and its big American brother the F-150 Raptor.
Imagine taking an off-road truck, lowering it, and fattening it with a wild widebody kit that looks like it’s supposed to go on a drift car. Actually, it might be kind of awesome. Maybe this many wrongs make a right.
I’d wager that these two men, by the names of Chris Harris and Mike Spinelli, are among the only people ever to get a Ford Raptor stuck on a teeny little glacier such as this one in Iceland.
I think the Ford Raptor, with its own name scribbled all over it in screaming font and its massiveness and its 450 horsepower and its long-travel shocks, is profoundly silly. I mean, I get its appeal in, like, an off-road sense. But I couldn’t imagine that anyone would need more than that—let alone for over $100,000.…
The Ford Motor Company would have you believe that you need a $60,000 twin-turbo V6 off-roading pickup truck with an aggro name and more cheats than a 12-year-old playing Grand Theft Auto V. Bah, we say! You need this only if you are a tool of the landed gentry. We’re here to prove them wrong with a true car of the…
Ancient velociraptors probably couldn’t swim very well, and the modern Ford F-150 that shares the name is apparently no different—a hypothesis tested by a Raptor driver in San Diego Friday afternoon.
We’ve known since the beginning of the year that there’s going to, finally, be a new Ford Ranger coming to the U.S. market by 2019. The Ranger has been alive and well overseas, but that’s not the one that will be coming here. We’ll be getting an all-new Ranger, and, based on what we can tell from these spy photos,…
Okay, so the 2017 Ford Raptor showed its compromises when I used it as a long-distance towing vehicle. But the compromises all seem worth it when your lazy butt only has 30 minutes to get down a rocky, dirty trail that Google Maps says should take an entire hour.
That’ll show ‘em!
Soon: the Raptor/Yugo showdown the world has been demanding for years.
As of the past few days, the 2017 Ford Raptor is the first Ford F-Series truck to be officially exported to and sold in China. Aside from the price, which has not been announced yet, there’s really only one distinctive difference between American and Chinese-spec models: the headlights. The other unique features for…
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor isn’t exactly the first choice for drag racing, but what better way is there to illustrate how the new turbo Raptor stacks up against the old-school V8 Raptor? The result is that there is, indeed, a replacement for displacement.
Early this morning, WikiLeaks tweeted and then deleted a strange message that appeared to be a mistake. But the bizarre tweet wasn’t about secret government documents or even a link to hardcore porn. It was something much weirder: A link to an ad for the Ford Raptor pickup truck.
