Three Ford off-roading vehicles available for sale in the Middle East
In a first for the automotive industry, three of Ford's most recognizable off-roading juggernauts are all currently on sale in the same area. The Ford F-150 Raptor, Bronco Raptor, and Ranger Raptor will all be available at once in the Middle East for the first time.
According to Pedro Simes, Marketing Director for Ford Middle East, "Raptor represents the pinnacle of Ford off-roading performance, and its unique DNA unites the three distinctive nameplates."" A tough, aggressive design language that emphasizes an all-conquering personality matches their leading off-road capability, power, and performance.
"As the first region to be home to all three Ford Raptors, we're proud to call it Raptor Land," says Ford of the Middle East. "With its diverse offering of challenging terrain, the Middle East offers an ideal environment for the raptor to roam."
The untamed and extreme Ford Bronco Raptor
The Bronco Raptor, the newest of the three, is the ideal marriage of legendary off-road heritage and is capable of navigating any terrain, from rocks to sand dunes. Built The Bronco Raptor, the first Ultra4 Racing-inspired SUV in the world, was created by Ford Performance to be untamed and outfitted with cutting-edge hardware and technology.
The Bronco Raptor's 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine can produce 418 horsepower and 596 Nm of torque, and it can race through the desert at highway speeds. A Raptor HOSS 4.0 race-ready suspension system, a fully boxed, high-strength steel frame, and standard 37-inch all-terrain tires round out the SUV's off-road arsenal. The distinct Raptor family signature look draws attention to all of these features.
The compacted graphite iron-block engine, which saves weight while supplying strength for improved longevity, is combined with a 10-speed SelectShiftTM automatic transmission designed to meet Ford Performance requirements for higher-speed desert capability or crawling over boulders. Using nearly equal-length pipes, a real dual-exhaust system with first-for-the-Bronco active-valve technology produces a better exhaust note. With four customizable exhaust modes, including Normal, Sport, Quiet, and Baja, the system enables drivers to change the sound of their Bronco Raptor.
The Bronco Raptor expands on the company's own G.O.A.T. ModesTM (Goes Over Any Type of Terrain) Terrain Management SystemTM, designed to aid off-road driving. A specially designed Baja Mode that engages a turbo anti-lag calibration to improve performance over fast desert trips is one of seven driver-selectable modes. Tow/Haul mode, which is new to the Bronco, enables a tow rating of 2,041 kg, an increase of 1,000 pounds over the standard model. Additionally incorporated are trail control, trail turn assist, and trail one-pedal driving.
Ranger Raptor: An Unparalleled Ride
With a powerful 3.0-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine that can produce up to 292 kW (392 hp) and 583 Nm of torque and an adjustable FOX suspension system, the next-generation Ranger Raptor performs superbly both on and off the road.
The Ranger Raptor, which is currently in its second generation, has a new suspension, FOX 2.5-inch Live Valve internal bypass shock absorbers, and seven adjustable drive modes. It allows drivers to conquer any type of challenging terrain.
The new engine in the Raptor provides effortless acceleration over gravel, dirt, mud, and sand when coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission, each of which has been set with its own boost profile. The Raptor's sonic tone spans from mild to wild thanks to an electronically regulated active exhaust system that intensifies the engine note in four selectable drive modes (quiet, normal, sport, and baja).
Drivers can modify acceleration, traction control, steering sensitivity, and gear shift behavior in six preset modes with the Ranger Raptor's Terrain Management System to optimize performance under all circumstances. These include Baja mode for unmatched off-road performance, Normal mode, Sport mode, Grass, Gravel, and Snow mode, Mud and Sand mode, and Rock mode.
The Ultimate Pick-Up Power, the F-150 Raptor
The brand-new Ford F-150 Raptor transforms the most popular pickup truck in the world with unmatched power, toughness, and style. Trophy trucks that compete at Johnson Valley and Baja inspired a new five-link rear suspension design with cutting-edge FOX shocks with Live ValveTM technology. This third-generation Raptor is a harder and more capable off-road performer thanks to its aggressive design and fresh styling from the ground up.
This pick-up is more maneuverable than ever thanks to a high-output 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine, a 10-speed automatic transmission, and aluminum paddle shifters located on the steering wheel.
A two-speed 4x4 system with an automated torque-on-demand transfer case, a 4.10 final drive ratio, a trailer tow rating of 3,700kg, and a payload rating of 635kg are just a few of the significant improvements Ford has made to the most recent F-150 Raptor.
The F-150 Raptor can take you anywhere you need to go with ease thanks to its 136-liter extended-range fuel tank and Terrain Management System with seven selectable drive modes: slippery, tow/haul, sport, normal, off-road, baja, and rock crawl.
Drivers have more control over even the most difficult terrain thanks to the standard electronic-locking rear differential, the optional TORSEN® front differential, the new Trail 1-Pedal Drive, and Trail Control.
Inside and out, the F-150 Raptor's design elements are rough and aggressive, with a distinctive appearance that matches the truck's status as the pinnacle of performance. These cues include a blacked-out grille with integrated marker LEDs and black headlamp surrounds.
SYNC4 Enhanced Voice Recognition and a sizable digital instrument cluster are standard on all three Raptors, while Ford Co-Pilot360 technology delivers a variety of driver assistance and safety features that are both standard and optional.
Simes continued, "Raptor is the pinnacle of our off-road collection, giving a special blend of performance, technology, and design that you can only receive from us.
