Last week we reported that the first confirmed pricing of Ford's new Ranger Raptor had been revealed at the Bangkok Motor Show. At 1.699 million Thai bhat, the Australian price conversion at the time of writing was $70,800. And while we assumed that there would be an import mark up, we didn't know how much it would be. Now we do.
Early speculation put the Australian Ranger Raptor pricing at around $70,000. Today it was confirmed that the prices will start at $74,990 and it will be definitely be hitting our shores in 2018. It looks like we were pretty close!
"Aussies have a passion for performance cars, and an appetite for pick-ups, and the Ranger is a direct response to that,” said Ford Australia President and CEO, Graeme Whickman. “Our local design and engineering team has worked incredibly hard with Ford Performance on this truly unique program to deliver a product that brings Raptor DNA and meets the needs of Australians who’ve called for such a vehicle."
Sadly for some, they still are definitely not releasing a petrol-engine in Australia. Sorry!
