The pickup Ranger Raptor can be considered as the younger brother of Ford F-150 Raptor model. Both Ford models are extreme pickups with reinforced suspension, powerful motors, sports brakes, BF Goodrich off-road tires, all-wheel drive and impressive ground clearance. The Ford Ranger Raptor is different from the simple Ford Ranger. There is not only a more brutal appearance and grille, decorated with a large FORD inscription, more compact bumpers and a powerful plastic body kit, but a lot of original technical details.

Firstly, the frame of the extreme pick-up is seriously strengthened that allowed to increase tow cargo capacity. Secondly, the carmakers installed amplitude-dependent shock absorbers from Fox Racing Shox that provide excellent smoothness. Thirdly, the rear suspension is spring-loaded, and the rear axle bridge is supplemented by the Watt mechanism, which provides a smaller lateral displacement of the rear beam. Fourth, the ground clearance is increased by 60 mm to 283 mm.
