Meet the Ford F-150 Raptor’s very capable younger brother — the Ford Ranger Raptor! Beefed up to handle much more extreme terrain than the regular Ranger, the performance-tuned pickup truck comes equipped with a torquey diesel engine as part of its arsenal of off-road features.
Revealed in Thailand at a media event for the Asia Pacific market, the little Raptor is much more rugged-looking and wider than the standard Ranger, borrowing many styling cues from the F-150 Raptor such as a larger grille with the large block FORD lettering. It boasts dent-resistant front bumpers, more than 11 inches of ground clearance, a 32.5-degree approach angle, 24-degree ramp-over angle, 24-degree departure angle, and bespoke all-terrain BF Goodrich 285/70 R17 tires.
The Ranger Raptor’s flared fenders are made from composite materials and can accommodate a long-travel suspension, while its modified rear bumper comes with an integrated tow bar and two recovery hooks.
Ford’s engineers also reinforced the frame, added Fox Racing Shox to better handle high-speed impacts, and gave the rear suspension coilovers and a solid axle with a Watt’s-link system.
In Asia, the Ford Ranger Raptor sources its power from a new 2.0-liter bi-turbo diesel engine that produces 211 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, mated to the same 10-speed automatic transmission found in the F-150 Raptor.
No word yet on whether it will be sold in North America and other world markets, so make sure to stay tuned to Seokijiservice for future updates.
2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty Can Tow Up To 37,000 Pounds (16,800 Kg)
The company is claiming the ‘king of towing’ title.
Ford has announced the towing and payload figures for the 2020 F-Series Super Duty lineup, and they are impressive.
Trucks equipped with the 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel engine have maximum gooseneck towing of up to 37,000 pounds (16,782 kg), maximum fifth-wheel towing of 32,500 pounds (14,741 kg), and maximum conventional towing of 24,200 pounds (10,976 kg), all of which are best in class.
The 6.7L diesel V8 produces 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful diesel engine that Ford has ever built.
For those who prefer a gasoline mill instead, there is also a 7.3-liter V8 that makes 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft. of torque, offering best-in-class power in the gasoline segment.
Finally, the base 6.2-liter engine puts out 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. It’s not the most powerful engine, but it nevertheless achieves a segment-leading payload rating of 7,850 pounds (3,560 kg).
“To put the capability of Super Duty into perspective, its maximum available towing figure means a properly configured F-450 could tow about as much weight as 31 American quarter horses at 1,200 pounds,” Ford stated. “That is one big trailer.”
2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Does 0-100-0 mph in 10.6 seconds
The new Shelby GT500 is a beast, but you probably already knew that.
Ford has released more 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 performance details, with the most impressive being that it can go from 0-100-0 mph in only 10.6 seconds.
In other words, this monster can accelerate from 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) and then brake to a complete stop in under 11 seconds without skipping a beat.
Power for the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 comes from a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine that produces 760 horsepower and 625 ft.-lb. of torque. A Tremec seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that can upshift as quick as 80 milliseconds sends all that power to the rear wheels, allowing for some serious acceleration. There are five drive modes that Ford says provides “ultra-smooth road shifts in normal mode to forceful powershifts in drag mode.”
The Mustang Shelby GT500 is also able to stop on a dime thanks to massive 16.5-inch front rotors, which Ford says are the largest placed on a domestic sports coupe.
Pricing for the ‘most powerful street-legal Ford ever made’ starts at $73,995 in the United States.
Watch The Electric Ford F-150 Pull Over 1 Million Pounds
The electric F-150 will be built “Ford tough” and shouldn’t have any problem with power.
Ford has posted a video highlighting the pulling power of its all-electric F-150 prototype.
The video shows the electric F-150 tow 10 double-decker rail cars and 42 2019 F-150s, with a combined weight of more than 1 million pounds (453,592 kg).
“Ford has confirmed it will bring an all-electric F-150 to market,” the company stated. “This will be in addition to the all-new F-150 Hybrid that goes on sale next year. Both electrified models will have the toughness, capability, and innovation that F-150 customers have come to expect.”
The F-150 Hybrid will go on sale sometime in 2020, but the precise timing for the electric F-150 remains unclear. Exact specs are also under wraps, but we do know Ford’s workhorse will be “built Ford tough.”
