Well-known TV presenter Richard Hammond believes that the American compact pickup Ford Ranger in the high-performance version of the Raptor is the perfect car for those who have the notorious middle-aged crisis.

The days when open-top cars were considered ideal for those who have a midlife crisis seem to have passed, at least according to TV presenter Richard Hammond. As part of the next Ford Ranger Raptor pickup truck advertising campaign, the Grand Tour host praises the capabilities of the diesel truck, demonstrating its off-road capabilities.

 According to Mr. Hammond, in a compact truck he also likes the fact that he is a versatile vehicle. With four doors, plenty of room for up to five people, this car is the true answer to all of its adult needs.

The Ranger Raptor is a versatile truck offered exclusively in a double cab body. It is sold in Europe, Australia and other parts of the world. Under its hood is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine equipped with a pair of turbochargers. The maximum power is 210 horsepower, and a torque of 500 Nm, which are sent to both axles through an automatic transmission with ten speeds.

It is noteworthy that the Ranger Raptor is not for sale at home – in North America, although there were rumors that it might appear in the United States. In this case, the diesel engine will be replaced with a gasoline V6 EcoBoost with a working volume of 2.7 liters and a power of 325 hp. (542 Nm).
