Ford Wont Bring the Ranger Raptor to the U.S., So This Texas Tuner Made One

Ford Wont Bring the Ranger Raptor to the U.S., So This Texas Tuner Made One
<a href=>ford</a> won't bring the ranger raptor to the u.s., so this texas tuner made one
  • ford doesn't sell the ranger raptor in the u.s., so houston-based tuner paxpower built one.
  • paxpower's ranger raptor build uses ford-sourced body panels and keeps the ranger's 2.3-liter inline-four, bumped up to produce 350 horsepower.
  • pricing is around $65,000, which includes a 2020 ford ranger fx4.

    we're still getting over the fact that we can't get our hands on the ford ranger raptor—the fun-size version of the high-flying, way-too-fast f-150 raptor. but now we can get something pretty darn close to the mid-size truck we crave. texas truck tuner paxpower is building a pretty-much-raptor ranger from ford ranger fx4s and selling them to u.s. customers.

    in global markets outside the u.s., the ranger raptor is powered by a 210-hp twin-turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel inline-four. paxpower, however, didn't want to use what it called the "puny" diesel, so for the ranger raptor it's using a beefed-up version of the ranger's turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-four. the houston-based tuner hasn't told us what else it has done to the four-cylinder, only that it will produce around 350 horsepower thanks to an sct performance tune.

    the exterior looks very raptor-like, and that's because paxpower used actual ranger raptor parts straight from ford. included is a raptor grille with a light bar and raptor front fascia, fender flares, bedsides, tailgate, and taillights. it even has raptor-like decals on the rear fenders. the example pictured is painted in f-150 blue jean metallic and is fitted with add offroad stealth fighter bumpers, icon wheels, and toyo r/t tires.

    raptor trucks are meant to be off-road monsters, so this build wouldn't be complete without a badass suspension upgrade to support it. every paxpower ranger raptor comes installed with a bajakits prerunner long-travel suspension system and king 2.5 front coil-overs and rear shocks.

    pricing for paxpower's ranger raptor build is around $65,000, which includes a 2020 ford ranger fx4. that's about $10,000 more than the starting price of an f-150 raptor.
