Adventure comes standard in Ranger Raptor
Maxed-out offroad ability makes this Ford the bakkie for serious 4x4 enthusiasts
Ford’s new Ranger Raptor is squarely aimed at harcore offroad warriors, or at least those who want to look the part. Rather than getting involved in a muscle tussle with the more powerful VW Amarok V6 and Mercedes X350d, the blue oval’s flagship bakkie defines its own niche as an extreme turf-tackling machine that boasts race-bred suspension, the best ground clearance in its category, and the bundu-bashing looks to pull it off. To better take on undulating terrain at higher speeds, the chassis has been completely reworked compared to a regular Ranger’s with the fitment of more robust shock absorbers from suspension specialist Fox, and increased suspension travel (by an extra 32% at the front and 22% at the rear).
