I think Ford are trying to lever off the F150 Raptor in countries where it’s just too big. A few of the big American trucks make it here, with an expensive RHD conversion but not many. The Ranger Raptor is a halo product; it’s never going to sell in big numbers because it’s too expensive and that lower payload precludes it being a commercial vehicle.
The “little” diesel develops more power and more torque than the 3.2 V6. It’s torque is an impressive 500Nm.
I reckon an Everest Raptor would fly out of the showrooms. Same spec, just the SUV body instead of the truck.
