Ford's Ranger Raptor plays with our hearts in the dunes
It's real and it's amazing, but it's not for you or I just yet.
This is the new Ford Ranger Raptor.
It's the long-rumored, hotted-up version of the Ranger, which just made its US debut in Detroit.
Sadly, though, this one hasn't made any debut in the US... and indeed it's not destined for American shores just yet.
But we'll be shocked if it doesn't bring its Fox Shox to the domestic market soon.
Yep, the steering wheel is on the 'wrong' side -- that's because it's not for North American buyers at the moment.
The Ranger Raptor's 2.0-liter bi-turbo four-cylinder is rated at 210 horsepower and a thumping 369 pound-feet of torque.
The engine will be backed by a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Chief rivals for the Ranger Raptor ostensibly include the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and Chevrolet Colorado ZR2.
The new truck features 11.1 inches of ground clearance, and has a 32.5-degree approach angle.
