A more powerful and focused on the conquest of more fierce off-road version of the American compact pickup will be available for a test drive in the game Forza Horizon 4 on the Xbox game console.

Ford has repeatedly stated that the hardcore off-road version of their compact Ranger pickup will not be sold in some automotive markets (particularly the United States), presumably because the Blue Oval would prefer to sell its full-size F-150 Raptor truck to Americans. At the moment, everyone who wants to try out the car will have to agree to the use of digital technology – a powerful version of the pickup is available for playing Forza Horizon 4 on the Microsoft Xbox gaming console.

The good news is that the wait is not long … Ford Performance Division has published the news that the car will be available in the game starting July 2 of this year, that is, very soon. There is no mention in the message of how exactly the brand fans can get this truck, whether it be a free download or something that requires money to buy.

According to rumors, it will still be a free addition to the game, which can be downloaded via the Autoshow function. There is also information and that this car can be provided as a reward for passing certain races. In other words, with the exception of something more official from Ford or Microsoft, we just need to wait for the downloads to start and test the car in action.

There are some suggestions that this move may be a harbinger of Ford launching real sales of the Ford Ranger Raptor in the US market, but this is actually unlikely.

The European version of the high-performance compact pickup truck received a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel with a capacity of 210 horsepower. This is far from the powerful two-turbine EcoBoost engine installed on the full-size F-150 Raptor, but both trucks use off-road suspension.
