The platform is tried and true, Ford has just been a bit too aggressive with how they've chosen to price the RR. At least sales overseas will allow them to determine what adjustments need to be made...

I have come across some third party raptor style grilles up on eBay, though I have no idea what their quality is like. Most of them seem to be for the F150, but I'll keep an eye out for Ranger...

Cost is going to be somewhat of a barrier though, because the RR is set much higher than the lower spec models. The Australian outback does seem like the perfect environment for it to stretch its...

Australia is really stringent with their censorship laws, and this is the same reasons why its one of the first countries to ban ads, movies, games etc. You can even see the fine print in the freeze...

Ranger Raptor Ad banned in Australia

A new Ranger Raptor advertisement has just been banned in Australia, for showcasing reckless and unsafe driving behavior. As I'm sure all of these scenes were filmed on private land with a...

The ZR2 doesn't have nearly the same off road prowess, but Chevy is starting to close the gap. And the base Colorado has a plethora of powertrain configurations to choose from, while Ford's just gone...

I think its a safe bet that anything that's being unveiled with a diesel will be Euro exclusive. Alike what we've seen with the T6 however, there will probably be some similar aftermarket grilles...

We are years away from seeing proper hybrid/ electric variants of pickups. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense for Ford to release one now, as their Ecoboost engines are still matching the fuel...

There is no point in bringing the RR to North America with anything less than 300hp. Even the new Edge ST is past that threshold.

I'll bet that Ford was also worried that the Ranger Raptor would cannibalize sales of the F150 model. Seems like the price could have been a huge barrier as well, with prices as high as $65k in some...

Diesels may be getting a lifeline if the Trump administration is able to freeze current fuel economy standards. I do feel like this will slow innovation and make new products less competitive though.

The vast majority of Wrangler owners never take their vehicle off road, but that doesn't stop FCA from updating its off road capability. Pricing is getting a little carried away on those models imo...

Similar to the F150 Raptor, I doubt that most owners are going to take it off the pavement, but its good to see that they've done proper upfitting. Let's just hope that they can deliver this kit at...

Smart move by Ford for them to use this as an opportunity for free advertising. Would also love to see Ford give this thing a green light for Australia's SuperUtes Series.

The F150 Raptor is just too large for European roads, so there is far more practicality offered in the Ranger variant. There is no way Ford could sell it at that kind of price in North America, but...

Do we think they'll offer both a turbo diesel and a petrol engine for NA? I think they will be limiting consumer interest by only offering it in one spec again.
