    There's a rumor the US version of the Ranger Raptor will get the TTV6 @ around 250kw and 600nm.

    That thing would jump a tabletop at the Supercross towing 2 jetski's.

    If that engine was here, then i would deal with the towing capacity and buy one.

    No, its suited for both on off road, most being a business purchase like having the top of the line, a vehicle that you have it all but only use a third of it, just like lacking gizmos on Sprint - its the driving ability and experience.
    Look forward feeling what that 500nm of torque delivers.
    Thats what you do with 4x4's Norm.
    Yes you got to remove your own picture regards Dual Cabs.
    The suspension changes are what has been the norm/option (pardon the pun) for yonks for those inclined but finally by an OE for our market and hiphip hooray its us/Ford now this is a 1st in this market.
    Aftermarket Fox matched coils overs.
    Great stuff good product.

    I like the interior by the pics, understated just my style.
    How many will try to retro fit those headlights to their PX11's.
    Overall yes could have should have been more as Perko quotes but getting near to $80k for a dual cab great ceasors ghost !
    I'd seriously have to consider spending that much for a work horse daily but......famous last words.
    You could jump into a Wildtrak deal, mod it on $70k but without Raptor badge.
    Overall a step forward in 4x4 package.
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.
    Sydney is Sky Blue HAL Premiers/Champions 2017 - the Double.

    Congrats to Ford on a great concept vehicle, I love the interior.

    The exterior does nothing for me. How to take a 460K Car and make it look like a $60K car with $10K worth of Bolt-ons for only $20K more. But i'm not their target market. I'm sure this will sell almost as fast as spare parts as people run around whacking into things. 2.2m wide will be a shock for a lot of people.

    But they have nailed the off road look. If I ever need to cross a desert, this monster will do it with ease.

    No I don't. If FoA want me to part with $80K plus ORC so probs $90K drive away in the early days, then they can build a car I want.

    I love the interior, The rear suspension upgrade, ten speed auto,

    I dislike the boy racer plastic bolt-ons but that is a simple matter of taste and I accept I will be in the minority.

    Now for the big thing. The 2.0 twin turbo diesel . A 2 tonne beast being motivated by boost and more boost. Good in theory. Let's see how they go long term. This is not an anti Ford thing, I would not buy an NoVara or an Amarok with it's 2.0 twin turbo. Your Performance and longevity is determined by the weakest link in a pressurised system. Add in diesels higher maintenance, EGR sysytems, DPF sysyetms and soon add blue. gimme a break.

    I'll wait for a 5.0 Petrol or simply not buy one.

    It looks and sounds friggin awesome. Shame about the power plant but at least it has more torque than the current model.

    Styling wise they’ve nailed it.
    With nothing else in the pic it looks like a f150 raptor. It’s been scaled very well.
