Next-Gen Ford Ranger Raptor Spotted Up Close On Thai Roads

The smaller Raptor pickup’s global reveal is scheduled for February.

The next-generation Ford Ranger Raptor is set to debut in the first half of this year, but a prototype has been sighted in Thailand. The Ranger Raptor observed testing on public roads was still wrapped in its camo covers, complete with Raptor insignia and a slogan that says “Pushing the Limit.”

The spy photographs were shared on a Thai Facebook page called Next Gen Ranger 2022 Society and picked up by a number of outlets, including the social media post we’ve linked below.

Despite the Blue Oval’s best efforts at camouflage, the up-close images exposed a few things. Because the Ranger Raptor is based on the next-generation Ford Ranger, which was unveiled globally last year, it will share design aspects such as fender cladding and styled tail lamps. The flares appear to be larger than expected, though it’s worth noting that the Ranger Raptor prototype lacks the step “ladder” on the rear bumper.

The C-shaped daytime running lights, which can be seen in the other photographs on the embedded page above, give us a hint as to what stylistic aspects we can expect up front. The massive Ford wordmark will, of course, be visible on the grille.

Meanwhile, Ford has remained tight-lipped about the Ranger Raptor’s powerplant. However, a teaser hidden deep within the Ranger’s live feed showed that the hotter Ranger would be powered by a V6 gasoline engine with two turbos. It’s planned to premiere in February 2022, so we’re just a few weeks away.

The base Ranger comes with three diesel powertrain options: single- and bi-turbo 2.0-liter four-banger diesels, as well as a V6 turbodiesel at the top of the line. The 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 from the Bronco or the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 from the Explorer ST might be used in the Ranger Raptor. A Ranger Raptor R with a V8 engine is also rumoured to be in the works.
