The over-the-top Ford Ranger Raptor could be receiving a new colour in Malaysia later this year, as seen in a recent spy shot.
These photos were sent in by our reader VT, indicating that Sime Darby Auto Connexion (SDAC) is gearing up to introduce True Red on the Malaysian-spec Ford Ranger Raptor.
True Red will join the Ranger Raptor’s other four body colours, namely Arctic White, Conquer Grey, Absolute Black, and Ford Performance Blue.
About a year ago, SDAC gave the Ranger Raptor a new ADAS suite, encompassing features such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Vehicle and Pedestrian, Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Departure Warning and Assist (LDW), and Lane Keep Assist (LKA).
To recap, the Ford Ranger Raptor is Ford’s first attempt at creating a go-fast, go-anywhere Ranger. It gets bespoke Fox Racing shocks at all four corners, thicker steel underbody guard, fender extensions, and chunkier tyres.
The Ford Ranger Raptor is currently priced from RM 208,888. The Ranger Raptor, alongside every other pick-up sold in Malaysia, are not entitled to the SST exemption as they are classified as commercial vehicles.
