Ford Ranger can get engine from Mustang GT

The current Ford Ranger pickup truck has been produced in Michigan since October 2018 and is equipped with a turbocharged “four” EcoBoost with a capacity of 270 hp. However, he clearly does not like many people (if only because his four-cylinder engine does not sound “thoroughbred”), but soon everything can change.

According to the Wheels portal, soon the Ranger can get a Raptor modification, in which it will be equipped with a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated Coyote engine with a capacity of 455 hp, but first the model tries on a 210-horsepower 2.0-liter diesel engine.

Demand for the powerful Ford Ranger Raptor is in Australia, where pickups are very popular.

The head of the local Ford division, Matt Moran, commented on this news as follows: “There have always been speculations around the Ranger Raptor, and although we do not have concrete plans for the future, we are excited about the passion and how much people love this great truck designed and designed right here , in Australia”.

Obviously, Ford is interested in developing the Raptor line, and although the brand has been focusing on EcoBoost turbocharged engines for many years (for example, the F-150 Raptor pickup is equipped with a 3.5-liter turbo engine), it is obvious that in some markets there is a demand for classic “aspirated” in the configuration of V8.
