In a promotional campaign for the Ranger Raptor, Ford shows the machine pulling 20 caravans in a short video. The pickup tows a 44,092-pound and 328-feet convoy of trailers in the UK in order to demonstrate the range-topping 2.0-liter EcoBlue twin-turbo diesel truck’s abilities. The vehicle won't be on sale until the second half of this year and only in Europe, but rumor has it that the company is considering releasing it in the United States but hasn’t decided yet. Check out the stunt below:
In the meantime, you can get your hands on a 2019 Ranger XLT. Under the hood rests a powerful turbocharged 2.3L four-cylinder engine which cranks out 270 hp at 5,500 revs per minute and 310 ft.-lb. of torque at 3,000 rpm. It’s equipped with the brand’s famous ten-speed shiftable automatic transmission and 4WD that makes off-roading an attainable dream. It also has a lot of strength as it can tow up to 7,500 lbs, yet it still gets an impressive fuel economy of 21 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
