Well those are definitely a step up from the current Ranger. My son had the 2.7 in his F-150 and it was pretty quick so I can only imaging how it performs in the Ranger…

…and the Raptor! That will be quick!
Jeep will announce a 392 Gladiator by the end of the Summer to get on top of the heap again (just my speculation).

Retired for now!
Interesting and looks like Ford has made some nice improvements with the new Ranger. I may of missed it somehow, however I did not see the Tremor upgrade offered. Anyway, it will just keep Jeep and the other midsized truck manufactures making improvements to compete! The Ranger Raptor looks really sweet!

Not ugly but does not move the needle for me much. Think the 2024 Colorado and Tacoma have better styling.

I see Ford has also abandoned the one engine choice for all models they have with the current Ranger.

Anti-Lag is a nice touch for the engine though.

Agreed on the new Tacoma. They did a great job with it (If the pics hold true).

Wheel openings look healthy enough to enjoy some 35's

The 4WD 24/7 crew in Australia have had their version of the Ranger Raptor on a few episodes running 35's, it does really well for a 'stock' pickup truck.

Hurricane Engine is more likely, to keep the 392 price in line with the Wrangler its would need to be 86k

I like it a lot but I'm surprised that the rear seat passengers will still be sweating their nuts off in the summer due to lack of rear passenger AC vents. Its 2023 and $50k+ vehicles lack basic AC features??

Crazy considering my '96 Ford Exploder XLT had rear AC and floor vents to heat passengers' feet.

Tack on another $20k to the raptor price and you'll be driving one and possibly a two year wait if your lucky
Typical Ford, that's why I walked away from the Bronco.

It should come pretty well equipped at 56k if they can hold at that price and be a great deal.
