Hold onto your hats ladies and gentlemen because it’s finally official—the Ford Ranger Raptor is coming in 2018. Aside from the fact we know the Ranger Raptor will be available across Asia Pacific in 2018, Ford is keeping other official details close to the chest, but they did release a testing video that teases the capabilities of the truck. It slides. It jumps. It tackles the dust, the dirt and the grass. It’s fast as hell and it looks great even if it’s still completely decked out in automotive camouflage. The Ranger Raptor in the video was tested by Ford Performance and Ford Australia in the Outback, but there’s still no word yet on whether or not this model will ever make it stateside. In a conversation with Ford Truck Enthusiasts an official spokesperson had this to say: “We are talking about the new Ranger Raptor for Asia Pacific. We do not have any information to share about a Ranger Raptor for North American customers.” That’s definitely not a no from the brand, and we do know the Ranger is coming back, so here’s hoping we have the chance to jump behind the wheel of one of these bad boys in the US.
