Does the F150 Raptor not start at $51k? I really think that Ford should have set the base price much lower. It's going to be a hard sell, getting people to spend more money on the Ranger variant when its half the power of its big brother.

Well that price is just based upon a currency conversion, and it may be priced differently for the U.S. Hopefully Ford hasn't squashed the new Ranger Raptors chances of success, by coming to market with such an inflated price.

Heard the Ranger Raptor could go for $84,440 plus ORCs in Australia, which is a lot better than what you'd have to pay in the states. That's a lot more than the other two, which are the Wildtrak. The long list of features may make that extra cost worth it, but I'd probably go with the two other trims that should make up the bulk of Ranger sales.

If that's true and its going for $84k Australian, that roughly translates to $64k U.S. That would make it more expensive that the F150 variant..and I hope that's not the case. Definitely see people leaning towards the other trims if these rumoured price points are correct.

The Raptor variant wont do well in the U.S if they try to price it above $50k. Anything more than that and people will start to look at the full sized offerings. I don't know why there would be such a discrepancy between regions though. I saw that the Raptor is supposed to cost less in the Philippines than what its been priced at in Thailand.

You can't directly convert prices from Australia with how steep their vehicle import taxes are, same for other countries that are getting the Ranger Raptor. I think Ford will take into account each countries' import taxes and price it accordingly to sell in large quantities, even if they make less profit in certain markets.

Based upon conversion and different taxes, it looks like the listed price in Thailand works out close to $40K US. I think that starting on the low end of 40K will definitely help the Raptor in moving units here in the U.S..once its officially confirmed for the NA market.

Is there actually a chance that the Ranger Raptor may launch exclusively in foreign markets as a way for Ford to gain insight on consumer interest and acceptable price points? Perhaps the turbo diesel powertrain is the only set up that they've made thus far for the new platform.

Ford Australia has officially price the Ranger Raptor at $74,990 before on road costs. This makes its $13k more than the Wildtrak and $6500 more then the VW Amaraok V6 Ultimate.
