Ranger Raptor at Baja

Recommended Posts

https://www.fordmuscle.com/news/ford-performance-sends-ranger-raptor-into-baja-1000-battle/

 

I'm assuming this was a left-hand drive version which begs the question which plant would this have come from? South Africa or does Thailand build both RH and LH?

So is MAP actually building 2024 prototypes yet?

Outside North America, it eould be South Africa, Thailand, Vietnam (CKD)  and Argentina that build LHD Rangers. 

 

South Africa and Thailand build Ranger Raptors. The modified RHD unit that raced in Baja is Australian spec, so that one is made in Thailand.

Doesn't Mexico get the International Ranger and not the US built one? 

 

Baja Ranger Raptor is a RHD Australian unit, so it's ftom Thailand.

Are you saying MAP builds Rangers for Mexico or that Map built the one raced at Baja or both?  😉😁 Just kidding on that second part. Read on....

As proof here's a quote from the Ford Performance website:

 

 “The truck was built by Kelly Racing in Australia, arrived on a plane in California and we  headed straight to Johnson Valley for testing with final prep support from our good friends at  Huseman Engineering. All the guys who drove it were impressed with it but being right-hand drive we all needed a little reprogramming for what it’s like to be driving on the other side of  the truck and not smoke the opposite side against the rocks."

Isn't that the Rest-of-the-world Ranger shown in the Ford Mexico website?

I see, so you're referring to the next gen Ranger that hasn't been launched in Mexico.

Fuzzy, that photo of the current gen does look like it has the ROW front facia. I.E. plastic bumper cover. Does MAP build anything like that?
