You’ve heard of Ford’s high performance off-road ready pickup, the Ranger Raptor. You’ve heard how it can tackle tough terrain and even take on stuff like the harsh Baja Desert. But what exactly makes it a tough truck? And what’s al the fusss surrounding this Built Ford Tough offering?
One crucial part of the equation is is the vaunted powertrain that throbs under the tough exterior—the 2.0-liter Bi-turbo diesel motor and 10-speed automatic gearbox. Putting out a rousing 210hp and 500Nm of torque, it powers the Ranger Raptor and its lesser yet still very capable Ranger Wildtrak 4x4 sibling thru any situation thrown their way.
With all that power and twisting force, sent to the drive wheels by a tranny with a wide gear spread, one can have loads of grunt when they want to play. Or simply maximize fuel economy when cruising. It’s the best of both worlds. And with a towing capacity of 3.5 tons and an 800mm wading depth, you can practically take this truck anywhere without worry.
Moreover, this powertrain combo has been tested in various parts of the world, in extreme temperatures even, to ensure that it can take even the toughest, harshest punishment. The gearbox itself has been used in the bigger F-150 sold in the US market, which says a lot about its durability.
