A few Ranger Raptor owners reporting issues

According to some reports out of Thailand, some new Ranger Raptor owners have already experience issues shortly after taking delivery. The first case is an owner who reported his new truck overheated, and Ford agreed to simply replace it, if he took his post down. The Second is an owner who said his truck reported a loss a power and then failed to start. Ford provided him with a refund. Lets hope these are two isolated incidents. https://news.thaivisa.com/article/26...their-vehicles

Not surprised that Ford is trying to quash these reports quickly and quietly. Its for this reason that its to our benefit that the RR launches in foreign markets before making its way here. We'll get an idea of what possible issues need to be addressed early on.

A bit worrisome that both of these issues have rendered the truck undrivable. I find it hard to believe with all the testing that Ford has likely done with the Ranger Raptor that these issues didn't present themselves then.

We don't know how many deliveries there have been yet, so 2 models out of however many is probably still a very low percentage. This is also with the diesel powertrain, and we aren't likely to get that in North America.

I still have some hope for diesel powertrains to find its way into this segment because the segment right above it does. It speaks to a greater need that can be better targeted in a lighter platform.

No real need for diesel tech with the base Ranger having class leading towing. Ford hasn't yet mentioned what fuel economy is expected to be like however, but I'm sure their Ecoboost technology will deliver.

if that's really the case especially as we move towards hybrids then I would like to see a hybrid powertrain in the Ranger by time the mid-refresh model hits the market.

The only hybrid that Ford currently has in their lineup is the Fusion, and I don't think that the 7.6kWh battery from that model will cut it here. Since Ford is so far behind with their electric tech, we really have nothing to draw from.

one small company has been able to fit an 80 kwh battery in a pick-up similar to what this segment requires. On a more mainstream OEM level i can see at least 1/3 of that being possible here.

I think you'd be surprised at how many pickup owners still prefer diesel. I know interest in these engines has dwindled over the past few months as a result of all these emissions scandals, but they still do provide better economy and towing capacity than petrol.
