Midsize truck fans have never had as powerful an option as the 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor. For the first time ever, the Ranger has gone truly wild. It’s finally here, so buckle up and discover more about the first-ever Ford Ranger Raptor at Bell Ford.

Twin-Turbo Insanity: The 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor Specs

The 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor is the most powerful Ford Ranger of all time, courtesy of a 3.0-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6 engine with 405 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. A twin-turbo V-6 is a time-tested formula for vicious power without vicious inefficiency. An EPA-estimated 17 MPG combined1 certainly fits that definition in a 405-horsepower off-road-kitted truck.

Four-wheel drive, of course, is standard. The 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor maximizes its four-wheel grip with front and rear locking differentials and then adds just about every off-road upgrade you’d expect. So, let’s see them.

Conquer Any Terrain: The 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor Off-Road Upgrades

Conquer Any Terrain: The 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor Off-Road Upgrades

The 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor, like other Raptor models, has in-depth off-road enhancements as the name of its game. Suspension upgrades lead the way. Performance suspension with FOX™ Live Valve Shocks turns terrain-blasting brutality into capable comfort and creates a commanding, capable stance.

The Ford Ranger Raptor grille mirrors its full-size counterpart (the F-150 Raptor) while surrounding exterior accents add ruggedness. Skid plates are a must-have for rough-terrain rides. We think it goes without saying, but just in case, the Ranger Raptor has them; a steel front bumper connects with one of them, and a steel rear bumper makes the 26.4-degree departure angle even more powerful.

However, monstrous power, cutting-edge suspension, and solid-metal armor mean very little if the truck can’t make it to where the power and protection are needed. So, the 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor combines its 4×4 power with meaty 33-inch all-terrain tires to get you there without breaking a sweat. Extra-large fender flares help catch the rocks, debris, and dirt they kick up.

The aforementioned locking differentials get better still, as the Ranger Raptor uses Ford Trail Control, off-road digital-gauge-cluster readouts, and an electronic two-speed transfer to rise above the rest of our already capable Ford Ranger inventory and pull through the worst conditions.
