Perfected with technological features for today’s lifestyle

Compatible with both Apple iOS and Android, it also comes with a 32GB memory card which will allow drivers to record their life’s adventures or as a safety feature.
An exclusive Raptor X decal and Special Edition carpet mat provides even more differentiation, while retaining the Ranger Raptor’s premium car-like interior.
Performance DNA through its veins
The Ranger Raptor which was introduced in Malaysia at the end of 2018 is Asia Pacific’s first and only factory-built high-speed off-road performance truck and is designed to thrill even the most hard-core extreme adventure enthusiast, straight off the line.
With the learnings from Ford’s F-150 Raptor, the Ranger Raptor’s unique chassis frame had been newly-developed and extensively modified for high speeds and endurance off-road. Its race-bred suspension has also been specifically crafted to tackle the toughest terrains, smoothing out jumps, bumps and ruts. No other production truck in Malaysia features the
legendary FOX Racing Shox and a huge ultra-strength bash plate as standard equipment.
Its cutting-edge Terrain Management System offers six pre-set driving modes to conquer virtually any terrain, at the turn of a dial. Inspired by the Baja 1000 Desert Race, the famed Baja Mode dials down traction, improves responsiveness and shifting speed, and optimises the Ranger Raptor for high-speed off-roading.
As for its performance, the Raptor delivers 213 PS of power and 500Nm of torque and has been carefully calibrated with Ford’s latest 10-speed automatic transmission with PaddleShift technology.
Confidence to go all in
The New Ford Ranger Raptor X Special Edition is also packed with the latest smart and safety technologies offering customers complete confidence as they go about their adventures.
First in-class Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Vehicle and Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning and Assist comes standard.
More value with five-year manufacturer’s warranty
With a five-star NCAP rating, the New Ford Ranger Raptor X Special Edition comes with the new 5-year manufacturer’s warranty or 160,000km (whichever comes first) for Year Make 2021 Ranger model onwards and is aimed at providing better value to new Ranger owners.
