The powerful heart and equally one of the highlights of the Ranger Raptor is the all-new EcoBoost V6 engine with twin-turbo charging. The three-liter petrol engine, optimized by Ford Performance, converts its output of 212 kW (288 hp) and maximum torque of 491 Newton meters into remarkable propulsion. Power is sent to the wheels via a standard 10-speed automatic transmission. Each individual gear also has an individual boost pressure characteristic. The result: the EcoBoost V6 engine of the new Ranger Raptor impresses in every situation with dynamic power delivery. The 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6 engine with twin turbo is made of high-density cast iron and combines low weight with enormous robustness and reliability. The engine block is 75 percent stiffer than an engine block made from conventional gray cast iron. Thanks to fine tuning by Ford Performance experts, the engine responds spontaneously to accelerator pedal commands. Compared to the 2.0 liter EcoBlue diesel engine with four cylinders and bi-turbo charging in the current Ranger Raptor (157 kW / 213 hp), the new power plant offers a significant increase in output. This proven 157 kW diesel remains in the range for other versions of the new Ranger generation, which will be available from spring 2023. Ford will announce details of other engines in good time before the other Ranger versions are launched.
