Official: Ford Ranger And Ranger Raptor Coming To America In 2023

Trucks / 1 Comment

Ford CEO Jim Farley has spoken.

On the eve of the global premiere of the all-new 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor, Ford CEO Jim Farley took to Twitter to confirm what a countless amount of American off-road enthusiasts have been waiting for. Both the redesigned midsize Ranger and Ranger Raptor will arrive in the US next year. His single sentence declaration could not be clearer: "Ranger & Ranger Raptor are both coming to the U.S. next year."

He even added an American flag. The Ranger Raptor's arrival will round out the triumphant consisting of the F-150 Raptor, the also recently revealed Bronco Raptor, and now the Ranger Raptor. The new truck will ride on the Blue Oval's T6 global platform and will continue to fill the size slot between the Maverick and F-150.

The Ranger Raptor will be the most powerful midsize truck Ford has ever built, sources say. The outgoing overseas-only Ranger Raptor produces only 269 horsepower, a figure that certainly won't satisfy US buyers. Chances are, the new Ranger Raptor will pack an EcoBoost V6 engine with somewhere around 300 hp on tap.

Ford released a teaser video earlier this month showing the new off-road playing in the dirt. Developed by Ford Performance, those folks are promising a truck with "smarter technology controlling tougher, next-generation hardware to create the most advanced Ranger Raptor yet."

This could be the ideal hardcore off-road truck for those who've deemed the F-150 Raptor as too big, too expensive, too extreme, or all three. Farley did not provide a precise US market launch date for either truck, but there's a very good possibility one or both will be in dealerships by next fall. In the past, the standard vehicle, whether it being the F-150 or Bronco, arrived first followed by the Raptor variant. We wouldn't be surprised to see this pattern continue.

So, everyone brace yourselves for what's definitely going to be another wild ride.
