Is there actually such a thing? Or did somebody steal a badge?

Did it have big shocks and control arms sort of like the F150 Raptors have?

Looks like it has the Fox racing coil overs and 17" wheels. Here's an article with close up pics.....click on the pic of the shock and it will bring up some other closer ones...

Here's what I got. All the pics of it I took.

This truck had a Diesel in it. The driver came out and we were talking about it. Then he started it. I was like this got a diesel? He said yeah. But very slow for being a "Raptor".
Enjoy

That's a cool little rig, but I like the full size better.

I find the number of Raptors that have NEVER seen dirt hilarious. The ones in town are always freshly waxed and shiney. That's like buying a kenworth for a grocery getter

Hell my econoline has been on tougher terrain than probably 50% of Raptors.

Of course jeeps are the same way...

The front end looks like a Tacoma and the rear like a Chevy Colorado. No go for me.

It looks bigger than the FSB next to it.

I thought it was supposed to be a midsize..

The FSB is a compact utility vehicle by today's standards

Reports saying The Ford Ranger Raptor starting at $50k + I'm sorry but i'd rather get a 2019 F150 King Ranch for that price. I don't know of many in the US that are going to spend that kind of money on a midsized truck. That's nuts!

I saw a nice new FX4 Ranger at the dealership the other day and the tag in the window said it was only $40k with discounts so I believe a Raptor version would be at least $50k. $40k is nearly what I paid for my '17 Lariat with 11k miles on it. I guarantee you my F150 is way dirtier every weekend than any Raptor I have ever seen around here.

Do you think the guy parked next to you on purpose?

You know, because the new Bronco is based on the new Ranger platform and he just wanted to do something neat?
