2023 Ford Ranger Raptor Twin-Turbo V6 Petrol Review

This engine was created specifically for Ford Ranger Raptor. It features anti-lag technology that keeps turbos spinning for as long as three seconds after the throttle is lifted. Ford finally responded to the demand for more power after the Ford Ranger Raptor, which was launched in 2018, was criticized for not being able to deliver enough power with its 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel twin-turbo (157kW/500Nm) engine. These numbers will make the 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor one of the most powerful and fastest utes in its class. Although performance numbers have not yet been published, the 10-speed auto and epic power are expected to make it do the 0-100km/h sprint in under 7.5 seconds. It could even make it to the six-second bracket, despite its estimated weight of 2.4 tonnes.

The current Volkswagen Amarok turbo-diesel V6 and eight-speed auto do 0 to 100 km/h in 7.8 seconds, according to our tests. Ford does not plan to launch a diesel version for the Ranger Raptor at this time, so customers will probably pay more. The claimed maximum outputs were rated using 98-octane Premium Unleaded. The Ford Ranger Raptor’s twin-turbo V6 petrol engine takes at least 95-octane Premium Unleaded.
