I was pretty excited to see that it has front and rear lockers.

Not that I'm the intended audience, but I feel like this is the perfect vehicle for people who want a bad ass midsize truck and know themselves well enough to know that they have zero interest in modding. If the Gladiator Rubicon didn't exist, I think this would be the perfect truck.

If only you could get it with a manual, then I could be interested. I like that you can use the rear locker in 2H / 4H / 4L

I wanted one of these til I saw it in person at KOH. It would be FULL with a 35, assuming it could fit. I'm surprised they didn't open up the wheel wells even a little.

I am pleasantly surprised. I was very disappointed in the last generation of the Ranger. Everyone has an opinion with likes and dislikes but I thought the last truck was ugly.

I like it, but the goofy graphics would have to go.
The graphics shown are part of a $750 graphics package,.

The "Raptor" on the bed sides is standard, but there is supposedly an option for a decal-delete.

Why do people keep paying these prices? $80k! I keep hearing how dealers are suffering on sales. Guess they are the exception? What a joke.
Yeah, the dealer markups in some areas are insane. Luckily, my local dealer sells them at MSRP.

I do like the power plant it has. I am hoping the 2025 Gladiator gets something similar.

Or anything better than the 3.6 , hurricane would be nice.

My original plan was to get a 2024 Ranger Raptor in Oxford White with decal delete. I was going to order early, but I think I've decided to wait until next spring.

Some of the things about the current new US-spec Ranger Raptor that don't thrill me right now:
1) No a-pillar grab handles. I use the ones on my JTM every time I get it.
2) No upper AC vents for rear passengers.
3) No hard buttons for some frequently used items like heated seats & steering wheel.
4) Defaults to 4Auto at start-up.
5) Requires installation of bed reinforcement brackets for anything over 88lbs on the bed rails.

With all that said, if a white one showed up at a local dealer for MSRP, I'd have a tough time not buying it.

Agreed, but I feel like people complain about the prices being high until some combination of:

Getting money on the hood to reduce the pre-inflated price and feel like they got a steal

Financing way out to make the payment lower and seem not as bad

Raptor is really nice, the regular ranger doesnt look like they tried that hard imo. Still kind of ugly, and the interior is just super ford cost cutting as usual.
