Ford Reveals Ranger Raptor’s Price And Specs

The new Ford Ranger Raptor, the flagship model of the revised Ranger line-up, has been revealed at the 2019 Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham this week. Developed by Ford with the aim to deliver better off-road capability than the standard Ranger, the performance-focused Raptor will start deliveries in summer for £40,696 ($53,017.73).

Ford aims to improve the pickup truck’s on-road and off-road capabilities, fitting the Ranger Raptor with 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel engine that can make 210 horsepower and 500Nm of torque. This engine is paired with the same 10-speed automatic transmission that can be found in the US version of the F-150 Raptor. There are six different driving modes available: two for on-road use and four for off-road driving.

The F-150 Raptor enjoyed massive success in Britain’s store and if that’s not enough, the Ford offices in Britain lobbied to bring the smaller Ranger Raptor to its shores.

For that price, British buyers will get the Raptor’s aggressive visual transformation, as well as many standard equipment and driver and safety assistance tech that comes with this pickup truck—lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, rearview camera, and a collision mitigation system. The seats are all wrapped in leather and Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment can be controlled through the eight-inch touchscreen on the dash.

Outside, the Ranger Raptor has a new grille, extra ground clearance, and LED fog lamps. The wheels are larger, which pushed the bumper to flare out to accommodate them. The long-travel suspension is made for durability, stability, and better handling. Since the truck is made for the great outdoors, the front bumper uses composite materials to better withstand the expected dings and dents. Even the side steps are intended to drain mud, snow, and dirt since they are made of tough aluminum alloy with holes for proper cleanup.

The chassis has been upgraded to further handle the demands of off-road driving. The frame is tougher and stiffer. The brakes have been upgraded. And the race-bred suspension was set up to handle high speed in rough terrains.

Tesla Sets Model 3 Starting Price To £38,900 In UK

Tesla just released the pricing details for its Model 3 as the car goes on sale in the United Kingdom. Thanks to the government’s £3,500 ($4,564) plug-in car grant, the Model 3 with the Standard Range Plus rear-wheel-drive car will only cost £38,900 ($50,727).

If you want a faster Model 3 version, which is aptly named the Model 3 Performance, you need to shell out £56,900 ($74,249). The Performance version can bring the car from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds. But if longer mile range is more of your priority, you can get the Long Range AWD, a trim level that sits between the two versions. With a selling price of £47,900 ($62,524), the Long Range AWD can get you 348 miles as tested under the WLTP standards.

Although the entry-level Model 3 is more expensive than we have anticipated, it comes with a slew of special features that include an Autopilot system that can accelerate, brake, and steer the car in the right lane. It can also be set up to overtake maneuvers on motorways and dual-carriageways.

For an extra £4,900 ($6,394), Tesla can also equip the Model 3 with full self-driving capability. This will give the car the ability to drive automatically in the city and respond to traffic lights. It is worth taking note, however, that choosing the upgrade after the car has already been delivered will cost £6,800 ($8,867).

Inside, the Model 3 is fitted with the most basic of equipment—a steering wheel and a 15-inch touchscreen that faces the driver. The screen eliminates the need for physical display and control functions.

Buyers can choose from five colors. If you choose solid black, you won’t have to pay extra. Midnight Silver and Deep Blue will go for an extra £950 ($1,239) while the Multi-Coat Red and Pearl White will cost £1,900 ($2,478).
