This Is The Only Way America Can Drive The Ford Ranger Raptor

Video Game

All you need is a PC or an Xbox One.

Forza Horizon 4 was released on PC and Xbox One last September, and since then the sublime open-world racer has expanded considerably with a wealth of new content, including new cars and even a Lego-themed expansion pack. Pickup truck fans will be delighted with the latest addition to Forza Horizon 4’s comprehensive vehicle roster because the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor has been added to the game.

From July 2, you’ll be able to take the Ranger Raptor for a virtual test drive and tear up dirt tracks in Forza Horizon 4’s idyllic recreation of the United Kingdom. Best of all, the Ranger Raptor has been added to the game free of charge.

Suffice to say, this will be the only way to experience the Ford Ranger Raptor if you live in the US because it isn't sold in America, despite the country's love for pickup trucks. Rumors have claimed the Ranger Raptor will come to the US eventually, but Ford has been adamant that it was specifically designed for markets where the full-fat F-150 Raptor isn’t available. There’s still hope, however, as a report earlier this year suggested that the next-generation Ranger Raptor will be sold Stateside in the early 2020s. We're keeping our fingers firmly crossed.

As for the current Ranger Raptor, power is sourced from a 2.0-liter twin-turbo diesel engine that sends 210 hp and 369 lb ft of torque to all four wheels through a 10-speed automatic gearbox. 0-62 mph takes 10.5 seconds before the truck tops out at 106 mph. For comparison, the more powerful F-150 Raptor utilizes the Ford GT’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that packs a 450-horsepower punch, enabling the hardcore pickup to do the 0-62 mph sprint in 6.1 seconds.
