Ranger Raptor Getting 210 hp Diesel

This doesn't sound all that impressive, though it could be just the Asia spec model because the Ranger Raptor revealed on Wednesday at a showing in Bangkok, Thailand. It had a 2.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-4 diesel engine and cranks out 210 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. That's paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and 4-wheel-drive system.

I'd have to agree that these specs are pretty underwhelming. While its impressive that they've been able to pump out 200+hp out of a 2.0 liter diesel, its power offering is half of what's seen in its big brother F150. I know with trucks, its typically more important to look at the torque, but imo this truck just isn't going to provide the high performance driving that's associated with the Raptor name. I'm sure it'll only be a matter of time before Ford announces the 2.3L Ecoboost engine for North America, but I think for the most part potential buyers are disappointed.

After seeing a video breakdown of this engine, i'm a bit concerned about its long-term reliability....
Not something I plan on owning out-of-warranty

If Ford plans to sell the Ranger Raptor in North America, it's going to need a better engine because the main complaint I'm seeing is just how under-powered the 2.0-liter twin-turbo is compared to the NA F-150 Raptor. I'd like to see the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 from the F-150 or even a tuned 3.2-liter five-cylinder. Either one would be a better option IMO.

So far I think the only vehicle that Ford has showcased to utilize that new Ecoblue engine is the new Ford Edge. Don't think we'll be seeing it in the Ranger Raptor, at least not for its initial release. There is no arguing that the powertrain in the Raptor is severely lacking, and I really want to see some off road performance tests. Ford will have to expand upon the Ranger Raptor if they have any hopes of selling it in large volumes.

As long as these make decent lower range power then there won't be an issue for the initial launch years, what will matter more is how capable it is off road. Part of being a Baja type vehicle is holding its own on challenging terrain.

Since its adopting make of the off road technologies that are found in the F150 variant, I expect it to be more than capable off road. I think the Terrain Management System from should help it stand above its rivals in the segment.

Seems like the 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel really will be the only option for the Raptor Ranger because that's what Australia is getting as well and paired with the same 10-speed automatic drivetrain. Unless Ford tunes it differently, the engine should produce 210 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Was hoping for something more and the 3500kg towing capacity remains the same as well.

Oddly enough it looks like Ford Australia will be offering the same engine from the Raptor on the lower end variants off the Ranger as well. Not sure why they would do that, as now your basically paying for a fancier shell with some performance tuning. You could probably even find some aftermarket kits for the base Ranger to give it the Raptors look.

The same could be said for a lot of cars. Its not all about power but more about how the entire vehicle is configured. The Ford GT is a good example of that, runs the F-150 Raptor engine, but like what's happening here, the engine is not all that important.
