Custom Tailoring a Mid-Size Off-Roader
It’s been about a year since Ford announced that the Ranger would be returning to US roads. In that time we’ve seen a few prototypes running around, and had a recent introduction at the 2017 North American International Auto Show. Two days ago we saw the reveal of the Raptor Ranger for foreign markets, but it’s still debatable whether we’ll be seeing that particular Hi-Po Ford on our shores. However, until we know something more concrete about whether or not we’ll be getting a Ranger Raptor here think it would be a good idea to delve into what we would expect from such a Ford. This is our TOP 9 (Ain’t nobody got time for 10) List of features we want to see in a US-Spec Ford Ranger Raptor.

The Christmas season brings my favorite show of the year, the annual Performance Racing Industry trade show. For those unfamiliar, PRI is an industry-only show that is not open to the public. Instead of being a ‘car show’, PRI is a Car-Parts-Show. Every year in Decemeber, the best manufacturers in the performance automotive aftermarket industry gather to show off their latest wares.
