This is definitely the most powerful pick-up truck I have ever driven, with a 3.0 liter twin turbo gasoline engine that develops 397 PS of awesome power and 583Nm of torque.
Power is to the rear wheels through a 10-speed auto in default 2WD High mode, easily switchable on the fly to 4WD High. There is the usual 4WD Low ratio for you to go off-road. In addition there is a 4a mode, which makes engages 4WD as and when necessary. This mode makes the Raptor a little bit easier to handle.
Built on the Ford Ranger platform, the 2022 Raptor moves away from the conventional 2.0 liter twin turbo diesel, opting for a V6 3.0 liter twin turbo instead, and this opens up a totally new world for Malaysian Pickup trucks.
If I recall correctly there used to be a Mitsubishi 3.0 Gasoline model about 20 years ago, but it didn’t gain any traction at that time.
If performance is anything to go by, the Raptor could very well be the ultimate truck insofar as pick-up trucks are concerned. With so much power on tap, despite its 2.4 tons kerb weight, the Raptor will certainly awe!
We actually went up twice – the first time, it was really wet and wild, so today’s run was more of a ‘revenge’ run. Stay tuned for the wet run too.
