Ford Ranger Raptor spotted testing in Dearborn, Michigan
No official word on its Stateside availability, though
Ford has neither confirmed nor denied the US market availability of the new Ranger Raptor, but a fresh set of shots suggest the Blue Oval will be bringing it Stateside after all.
Our spies recently snapped up a right-hand drive prototype driving around the streets of Dearborn, Michigan and even though it has its steering wheel on the wrong side for America, the simple fact of it being spotted there suggests they want to bring it to the States.
The Ranger Raptor’s main power plant is a new 2.0-liter twin-turbo diesel engine which puts out 210 hp, but if it does make it to the States, it may use a different power plant. The diesel could be kept too, but either a the 2.3- or 2.7-liter EcoBoost may be used as well.
Worth noting is the fact that the truck snapped in this batch of photos wears a graphic pack that is not available in other markets. This further strengthens the US availability possiblity.
