Welcome to Inquirer Mobility


The Ford Ranger Raptor is one of Ford’s most exciting vehicles. It combines power and rough-terrain capability with the practicality of a four-door pick up that’s comfortable in the city as well. Ranger Raptor is powered by a 2.0-liter twin turbo engine, the Raptor channels 213ps and 500Nm of torque through a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The Raptor has an unmistakable presence thanks to its 150mm wider body and added 50mm ride height versus the standard Ranger. The chassis has been modified with high-strength steel for added rigidity and durability, particularly when going off-road.

The off-road capabilities of the Raptor are enhanced by its 33-inch all-terrain tires developed especially for this model. 2.3-mm steel bash plate protects the Raptor’s underbody from off-road objects  and debris. Ranger Raptor boasts of 283mm of ground clearance, 32.5 degrees approach angle, 24 degrees departure angle and 24 degrees break-over angle to clear obstacles and gradients. 800-mm capability makes the Raptor best in class for water wading.

The showcase of the Raptor is one that you won’t see unless you peer under it. A Fox shock absorber system with 2.5-inch shocks allow 30 percent more wheel travel. What’s more, the system delivers an utterly composed and predictable response when going at high speed on rough roads. The cabin is uncannily serene. When crawling off-road, it instills confidence in extreme conditions. Ride around town is also excellent, with none of the harshness usually felt in pickup trucks.

Ford Philippines is sweetening the deal for those availing of a Raptor this July, with an extensive ownership package valued at P100,000.

With the Ranger Raptor Premium Care program, customers who will get a Ranger Raptor until July 31, 2020 will get free 5-year scheduled service maintenance package (SSP), a 5-year vehicle warranty (additional 2-year extended warranty to the standard 3-year warranty), and 5-year emergency roadside assistance (ERA).

“Ranger Raptor Premium Care is the first-of-its-kind program available in the market today. With this innovation, we continue to enhance the Ford ownership experience by giving customers a worry-free package with their Ranger Raptor pickup truck for the next five years,” shares PK Umashankar, managing director, Ford Philippines.

Under the free 5-year SSP, the maintenance service for the Ranger Raptor is free for up to five years or 50,000 kilometers, whichever comes first, and is inclusive of parts and labor costs for the periodic maintenance service (PMS) of the vehicle. Customer need not pay for parts and labor when they bring their Ranger Raptor to a Ford dealership for the specified PMS intervals.

On the other hand, the free 2-year extended warranty (EW) applies after the vehicle’s standard 3-year manufacturer’s warranty expires, extending the vehicle’s total warranty to 5 years or 150,000 kilometers. Extended warranty covers the parts and labor for the repair of various vehicle components such as engine, transmission, steering, brakes, suspension, and more.

Finally, a more premium coverage of the standard 3-year roadside assistance is provided to customers buying a Ranger Raptor this month with the 5-year ERA. ERA is a 24/7 roadside assistance program that provides quick and reliable help on the road for Ford vehicle owners.

The 5-year premium ERA coverage also includes additional privileges such as unlimited mileage for towing service (up to the nearest dealership), up to PHP5,000 worth of coverage for misfueling, additional free 5 liters of free fuel in the event of emergency fuel delivery, up to PHP10,000 coverage for continuation of journey (transportation to home or any destination, or accommodation) and up to PHP20,000 medical coverage.
