I see the Bronco in the background. 👀

I like the new body style.

Gauge cluster like the Bronco Raptor looks cool.

Not a fan of the overall center console/shifter design compared to Bronco/F-150. Definitely prefer the horizontal 12" screen with more physical buttons. At least it's not tablet on dashboard style.

Stop/start button location makes me think the base model Ranger will still have a physical key.

That front grille looks horrendous. I just don't understand the draw to large bulky letters on the front. Its like Ford saying we got the cure for glaucoma or something.

I didn't see the front or rear locker buttons anywhere. Strange. Weird that it was stated that it feels sluggish since it should be lighter than a BRaptor, but engine calibration is not final yet I'm sure.

I love the truck it looks great, would totally drive one.....but I can't see the price. The Ranger Tremor is already at 50k. Seeing this at 60-65k plus dealer mark up? Nope. I see most peasant people weighing the Ranger Raptor against having an F-150 loaded Tremor (with a 5.0 rumble of course). Its more than most people need off road and its a tad cheaper than the Raptor, especially with mark-up. Its a killer little truck though.

I would wager there's no dedicated locker buttons. Likely configured via steering wheel buttons in the gauge cluster display. We already know it has both front and rear lockers.

Looks like 35's wouldn't take much work to fit. They got the parking brake location right.

Not that I'm in the market or even the demographic for a Raptor anything but that would be nice to actually do a sleeper switch with a normal Ranger and get rid of that god-awful grille and interior and keep the mechanical parts. Is there such thing as a Raptor delete package?

All Raptors get that grill.

When this appeared on the F150 Raptor way back in 2010, the same criticism was levied. And today, you see lots of F150s (non raptors) with that grill ... I guess the FORD grill has fans

it is interesting that the review says it felt sluggish when this will be the 1st raptor without 35s.

Americans are into 35s and bigger when the rest of the world is not. The Ranger Raptor was always meant for everyone else except the U.S.

Was it? I remember the original SVT F-150 Raptor being pretty much universally acclaimed, it felt like the grill was the defining feature. The Ranger Raptor grill doesn't look bad but the 'FORD' sticks out like two inches from the surface of the grill, it does look a little bit strange if you're looking at it from a 3/4 view and not straight on from the front.

I've got the page still pulled up right now, I can repost everything in a bit unless that's a no-go from the admins.
