Ford Ranger Raptor heading for SA

7 September 2017

The popular Ranger bakkie will be available in an off-road performance variant for the first time and Ford SA has confirmed that it will be coming to South Africa.

‘The purpose-built, desert-racing inspired bakkie’ is known as the Ford Raptor – after the larger Ford F-150 Raptor available in the USA – and joins the Ford Performance family.

“Combining the Raptor’s advanced off-road capabilities with the versatility of the Ranger is a significant accomplishment for Ford’s world-class engineering and design teams,” said Jamal Hameedi, chief engineer, Ford Performance.

Ford SA described the Ranger Raptor as having a ‘bold appearance and extreme, off-road performance features’, but no other details about the capable-looking machine have been released yet.
