Upcoming 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor is fast approaching production and we can’t wait. Details on the tiny Raptor are slim at the moment, but a recent spy video from TFLnow shows several styles of the coming desert storm. So what can we learn from this disguised Ranger Raptor caught in high altitude trials? Let’s find out.
To begin with, it is very clear that Ford is not messing with the current F-150 Raptor a formula that has served them for decades. The Ranger Raptor will be a scaled-down version of the familiar F-150 Raptor and is aimed at customers who don’t have room for such a large truck.
The Ranger Raptor adopts the wide-body look of the F-150 Raptor sports fenders, which are used to fit larger, more aggressive wheels and tires. The side steps used on the prototype are taken straight from the current F-150 Raptor and hint at a scaled-down version of the proven formula. From there, the camouflage used by Ford obscures the rest of the truck body, save for a set of LED headlights that are barely visible.
One thing Ford’s camouflage can’t hide is the overall size of the next generation Ranger. The best part of the spy is the parking setup that puts the new F-150 Raptor next to the 2023 Ford Rangers. The size difference is shocking to say the least and hints that the new Ranger won’t be much larger than the current generation truck.
We expect the new Ford Ranger and Ranger Raptor to hit showrooms in late 2022 as a 2023 model. This gives us plenty of time to follow the truck’s development process and be even more excited about the second model in the wildly popular Ford Raptor series.
