Extracts from Australian review for the new model that seems to also be going to America

The new Ford Ranger Raptor ups its performance capabilities dramatically.
An off-road super-ute? You betcha!


The second-generation 2022 Ford Ranger Raptor is only weeks from first deliveries arriving in the hands of eager drivers.

Priced from $85,490 plus on-road costs, the off-road dual-cab super-ute goes up in price more than $6000 compared with its highly respected and popular predecessor.

With that price hike comes a whole new level of performance led by a 292kW/583Nm 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol engine that replaces the first-gen’s 2.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder.

When it comes to the 2022 Ford Ranger Raptor, there’s no doubt the decision to drop the old four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine and replace it with the twin-turbo V6 created the biggest headlines.

Ford says it’s a change driven by customer demand for more performance. But it also reflects the fact this model – unlike its predecessor – will be sold in the US where there’s no interest in high-performance diesel. True??

The big negative result is fuel consumption climbs – officially from 8.2 to 11.5L/100km – and with the tank staying at 80 litres the ability to make long off-road trips is potentially truncated.

No doubt it will go like a scalded cat

:LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL: woman's truck

What I was really interested in was the diesel comment and lack of interest in high performance diesels
My understanding is that the tdi touareg is quite a desirable car based on the prices I see they are being sold for ?
