The list continues with a set of wheel arch extensions, LINE-X protective coating on a multitude of elements – including the Pickup Design StyleBar Extreme sport bar – and Pickup Design Terrain side steps. Both of the bumpers, as well as the Pickup Design roof cover for the driving lights, are also protected with LINE-X.
Even the hood scoop is coated in LINE-X. The beefier front bumper and radiator guard are complemented by T-REX lettering in red. This color is also present around the headlights and under the upper grille. The taillights and tailgate received a similar treatment. Carlex Design also removed the bedside Raptor decals in favor of T-RX decals in… wait for it… the very same red.
A Tessera4x4 roller lid roller shutter is also included, as are Lazer driving lights. These lights feature 4,500-lumen LEDs. Unfortunately, the good folks at Carlex Design haven't done anything to the rather disappointing V6 engine.
The 3.0-liter EcoBoost is perfectly fine in Australia and the United States, but over in Europe, it runs a vanilla tune and gasoline particulate filters due to emission regulations. In other words, you're getting 288 horsepower and 362 pound-feet (491 Nm) as opposed to 392 in Australia and 405 in America. The peak torque rating for the Aussie and US versions of the Ranger Raptor is 430 lb-ft (583 Nm) for both.
Over in Poland, the Ranger Raptor is listed with a recommended starting price of 262,850 zloty, which is $65,400 at current exchange rates. The Euro-spec Ranger Raptor is manufactured in South Africa, whereas the American sibling is assembled in Michigan at the factory where FoMoCo also makes the Bronco since MY21.
Including the $1,595 destination and delivery, the 405-horsepower Ranger Raptor for the US market is $56,960 at the moment of reporting. Deliveries will kick off in late summer, concomitantly with the 2.3-liter Ranger. The 2.7-liter Ranger is expected to hit dealers nationwide in the fall.
The redesigned Ranger won't have it easy, though, because Toyota also redesigned the segment's best-selling truck. What's more, you can specify a six-speed manual in the Tacoma. Worse still for the Ford Motor Company, the Japanese rival can also be had with a hybrid-assisted powertrain built around the automaker's 2.4-liter turbo I4 mill.
