KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, 25 May 2023 – Due to popular demand from Raptor fans across the country, the Next-Generation Ranger Raptor will soon be available with the 2.0-litre Bi-Turbo Diesel engine.

Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC), the sole distributor for Ford in Malaysia, today announced that the Next-Generation Ranger Raptor 2.0L Bi-Turbo Diesel will be available starting 8 June 2023.

Built on the success of the previous-generation 2.0L Ranger Raptor with a power output of up to 210 PS and 500 Nm of torque from 1,750 rpm, the Next-Generation Ranger Raptor 2.0L Bi-Turbo Diesel offers an additional engine of choice that Malaysian customers and consumers are looking for.

As with its 3.0-litre twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 counterpart that was launched last year, the Next-Gen Ranger Raptor 2.0L Bi-Turbo Diesel comes with the same bold and high-energy exterior and interior styling, integrated technologies, and advanced safety features, in addition to the enhanced capabilities and upgraded components of Ford’s next-level innovations.

In conjunction with its launch, the first 300 bookings of the Next-Gen Ranger Raptor Bi-Turbo 2.0L Diesel will come specially fitted with the Kenwood DRV-A700W dashcam system, which features a Wide-Quad HD (WQHD, 3.7MP) front camera and Full HD (FHD, 1080p) rear camera for dual-channel recording. It is equipped with a three-axis G-Sensor designed to detect a collision. The system also comes with a built-in wireless smartphone link for easy management of recorded videos and dashcam settings. The built-in GPS receiver automatically records driving information and location tracking, while the polarised filter allows for more vivid and clearer images.

Designed and engineered as the ultimate Ranger model with Ford’s Performance DNA at its core, the Ranger Raptor has exceeded expectations, setting new benchmarks as the only factory-built performance truck for high-speed off-roading.

The latest milestone is the Next-Gen Ranger Raptor’s successful completion of last year’s gruelling SCORE International Baja 1000 in Mexico – one of the toughest off-road endurance races in the world. The Raptor used in the race was from the production line of the same factory in Thailand that builds all the Next-Gen Ford Rangers and Raptors seen on the road.

Completing the course in 26 hours and 21 minutes, the Baja-race-prepared Next-Gen Ranger Raptor was the only entrant in the stock mid-class category, which is designed to showcase the capability of stock road-legal trucks. This means the only modifications made were to meet race safety regulations. All other engineering and design aspects are the same as every Next-Gen Raptor coming straight off the production floor, including the engine, transmission, suspension and driveline.

“Since we launched with the V6 engine last year, the Next-Generation Ranger Raptor has been much sought after. Many Malaysians have been asking for different drive trains. We are responding by adding the formidable, tried and tested 2.0L Bi-Turbo Diesel engine variant to offer another ownership option for Raptor lovers and other high-speed off-roading enthusiasts,” said Turse Zuhair, Managing Director of Sime Darby Auto ConneXion-Ford.

Those interested in getting a closer look at the Next-Gen Ranger Raptor 2.0L Bi-Turbo Diesel, are welcome to attend its official launch event, which will be held from 9 to 11 June 2023 at MRANTI Open Space, West Entrance (formerly known as Technology Park Malaysia), opposite Pavilion Bukit Jalil.

The location was selected to provide a test-drive experience covering different terrains – tarmac, dirt, and rocky surfaces.

The diesel-engine Next-Gen Ranger Raptor will also be going on tour with the Ford Experience Hub to the northern and southern regions of Peninsular Malaysia, in addition to Sabah and Sarawak.
