The baddest pick-up truck in the country is now even better. Sime Darby Auto Connexion (SDAC) has given the Ford Ranger Raptor a mild update for the 2020 model year, and with it comes some additional safety kit.

The 2020 Ford Ranger Raptor now comes fitted with forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking system with vehicle and pedestrian detection, as well as lane departure warning and assist system.

The system seems to be identical to that of its younger brother – the Ranger Wildtrak 4×4, although missing out on the semi-automatic parallel parking assistant.

Other updates to the baby Raptor include new LED projector headlamps (HID projector on the outgoing model), as well as an additional USB charging port on the rear-view mirror – perfect to power-up your dashcams.

Otherwise, the Ford Ranger Raptor is pretty much identical under the metal. Motivation is provided by a 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel engine, delivering 213 hp and 500 Nm, mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The standard-equipment Fox Racing Shox and Baja mode on the Terrain Management System (TMS) will still let you do massive air-time on sand dunes that are truly worthy of the Raptor name.

The 2020 Ford Ranger Raptor also remains the same appearance-wise too, featuring the menacing ‘FORD’ grille and Raptor-specific bumpers and bash plates up front, widened wheel arches, and a taller ride height.

A new ‘Ford Performance Blue’ shade replaces the stunning Lightning Blue from the outgoing model, while the other three exterior colours – Conquer Grey, Absolute Black, Arctic White – remain available.

With the newly added kit, the 2020 Ford Ranger Raptor comes with a slight increase in price too. The updated Ranger Raptor now costs RM208,888 (OTR w/o Insurance), which is a RM9,000 jump from before.
