The limited-run model has made a slightly unusual debut as Ford has revealed it in a new film called ‘The Good, the Bad and the Bad-RSE’, which is a Western-style trailer showcasing the Raptor’s off-road ability. It also appears alongside three other recently-revealed versions of the Ranger – the MS-RT, Stormtrak and Wolftrak.
This is the first special edition version of the Raptor, with the model coming with twin matte black stripes on the bonnet, roof, lower body sides and tailgate. The same matte black finish also appears on the flared wheel arches, front and rear bumpers, bold grille and door handles – replacing the usual grey finish.
Other changes for the Special Edition include red tow hooks on the front, while a choice of Performance Blue, Conquer Grey and Frozen White colours are available.
Inside, the Special Edition features a leather interior, along with red stitching throughout and a new Raceway Grey instrument panel.
The mechanicals of this new version remain the same as the standard Raptor, with the model getting a bespoke off-road suspension and chassis setup for maximum ability, including a wider track, Fox shock absorbers and extreme all-terrain tyres. A 210bhp bi-turbo 2.0-litre diesel engine continues to underpin the Raptor, too.
Though prices have yet to be announced, expect a slight increase on the standard Raptor’s £50,665 starting price when models arrive in showrooms from October.
