Due to go on sale imminently, the Ranger Raptor is priced at £48,775, inclusive of VAT. Autocar has yet to received full equipment details of the UK-bound model.
The truck made its European public debut at Gamescom, a video gaming trade fair in Cologne, Germany last year, because it appears in the Forza Horizon 4 video game.
As with other markets, the off-road-tuned pick-up is powered by a 2.0-litre twin-turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine that makes 210bhp and 369lb ft, sent to all four wheels through a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
It's capable of 0-62mph in 10.5sec and tops out at 106mph. The larger, 450bhp V6-engined F-150 Raptor achieves the sprint in 6.1sec, while the standard 3.2-litre TDCi-engined Ranger M-Sport Double Cab takes 10.6sec.
Official fuel economy and CO2 emissions figures for the Ranger Raptor are yet to be released.
The model doesn't just focus on straight-line performance; its front suspension is upgraded to feature Fox Racing shock absorbers, while the rear gains a new Watt's linkage system with coilovers. Off-road speed is a priority for the Ford Performance-developed model, so a set of knobbly BF Goodrich tyres have been specially developed for it.
Ford has also lifted the Ranger to give the Raptor a ground clearance of 283mm, while its front and rear tracks have been widened to 1710mm. The chassis has been modified to handle high-speed off-roading, while the brakes now measure 332mm, up from 323mm. The callipers are larger than the standard model's, too, at 54mm.
