“The Ranger Raptor X leverages on the immense success of the Ranger Raptor in the market as we continue to boost our 4×4 truck lineup and reach a new group of performance pickup enthusiasts who are into aesthetic modifications,” shares Michael Breen, Managing Director, Ford Philippines.
The Ranger Raptor was launched in the Philippines in 2018, building on the success of the tough, versatile, and capable Ranger pickup. A key member of the Ford Performance family, the Ranger Raptor has since become one of the biggest-selling pickup trucks in the country and has created a legion of proud owners and fans.
The Raptor X is a limited-edition Raptor that is expected to turn heads with its unique design elements and exterior upgrades that give it a rugged, aggressive, and sporty look. It features striking over-the-top (OTT) body stripes covering the bonnet, roof, and tailgate with a ‘Carbon Twill Texture in Matte Black’ framed with a Searing Red Keyline Graphic and side body stripe decal covering side doors and rear quarter panel. The grille, door handles, bumper cover, tailgate handle, fender vent, and fog light bezel have been given a matte black finish.
Conveying a tougher stance on the road and capable to tackle the harshest driving environments, the Raptor X is equipped with an extended leg sports bar, red front tow hooks, and matte black wheels with 33-inch BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires.
Taking Ranger Raptor’s iconic Ford Performance interior further are body-contoured sport seats that now comes standard in the Raptor X with red stitching throughout the interior plus chrome accents on the AC vents for a more premium and adventure-ready look behind the wheel. Hydrographic and Black Alley accents across the dashboard round out the interior enhancements.
Beyond its cosmetic upgrades, the Raptor X remains powered by the 2.0L Bi-Turbo diesel engine capable of generating 213PS of power and 500NM of torque, and 10-speed transmission that has proven durability and on-road and off-road capability.
It also comes with the cutting-edge Terrain Management System (TMS) offering six modes for various driving experiences including the Baja mode, as well as 2.5-inch FOX Racing shocks capable of delivering 30% more wheel travel compared to the standard Ranger.
The Raptor X comes in three (3) striking colors that include Arctic White, Conquer Gray, and Performance Blue. It is available in Ford dealerships starting July at ₱2,038,0001, with 200 units to be sold throughout the year.
Wildtrak 4×4 now offers greater protection and functionality with power roller shutter
Ford Philippines is also announcing the official availability of the new Ford Ranger Wildtrak 4×4 with power roller shutter. A new feature available on the Wildtrak 4×4, the power roller shutter is segment-first original equipment manufactured product from Ford that offers greater security and functionality when transporting cargo.
“At Ford, we remain committed to designing products and services that are attuned to customer’s needs and lifestyles. With the power roller shutter, our customers can enjoy added protection, convenience, and safety with a feature bearing the Ford quality DNA,” adds Breen.
Boasting a sleeker and cleaner profile than most aftermarket offerings, the power roller shutter can be activated from inside the cabin through a switch on the dashboard, via a button in the tray, or by using the key fob. It has also been designed with an anti-pinch feature to prevent injury or damage when contact is made with an object.
The Ranger Wildtrak 4×4 with power roller shutter is available at an introductory price of ₱1,728,0002 starting June 22 in Ford dealerships nationwide.
