THEY SAY: “Designed and engineered to dominate in the desert, master the mountains and rule everywhere in between, the second-generation Ranger Raptor raises the off-road performance bar as a pick-up built for true enthusiasts.”

WE SAY: The last Ranger Raptor looked the part but was hamstrung by a limp engine. The new 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor is many things but 'limp' isn't one of them. Raised on a diet of peptides and red meat, the Raptor is stronger, harder, and much, much faster. Job well done.
