New trailer for Ranger Raptor from Gamescom

For the second year in a row Ford has been present at Gamescom. They used this opportunity to debut the Ranger Raptor and a dropped a brand new trailer for the hardcore off roader. There was also a 4d simulator which would give participants the chance to drive the new truck in Forza Horizon 4. Really well done advertisement in my opinion.

That's a great commercial. If only it alluded to the RR coming to the U.S. Still really impressive what they have managed to deliver with a little 2.0l diesel.

If Ford keeps pace with this current marketing scheme, the Ranger Raptor is going to be highly sought after. Though waiting to announce it last for the market most interested in performance models is an odd choice.

I have a feeling that shortly after launch the Ranger Raptor will be as difficult to source as its larger brother. I am expecting that availability will be quite low across most dealerships, as I'm sure Ford will be producing it in limited quantities.

The inflated pricing we've seen in foreign markets, wouldn't fly here. It would make more sense just to step up to the F150 variant for nearly double the power.

I'm not sure that the full size Raptor will appeal to everyone, because its a much larger vehicle. It's a growing trend in the NA market to purchase a pickup, without actually needing the utility that it offers. Once more hybrid systems are put in place we'll probably see even more of them used as commuters.

Well the upcoming Scrambler looks to be a proper midsize option, and Hyundai also has the Santa Cruz in the works. I think eventually we'll see a shift back towards smaller pickups, especially with how capable smaller engine options are becoming.

Chevy has even announced that they will be bringing a 4 cylinder engine to the Silverado, and it actually has better power numbers than their current V6. Paired with hybrid systems, there probably wont be much need for V8's in the coming years.

The tuning possibilities it brings will help owners overcome any concerns about adequate torque and towing capacity. We'll just have to be patient for aftermarket to respond.

If the 4 cylinder has higher hp and torque figures then there is no reason why it wouldn't have better towing capacity than the current powerplant. Hopefully fuel economy also sees an decent increase.
