Ford Ranger Raptor: Sharpened Advantages
Ford says the next-generation Ford Raptor will have a sharp edge over the VW Amarok, although they are based on the same platform.. The car makers of Ford and Volkswagen have reach an agreement and established business ties. As part of a product and technology agreement, the new Ranger and Amarok will share the same T7 architecture and technology. Ford will build and engineer both Ford and Volkswagen, but despite of it, I think personally that the Ranger that will have an advantage over Volkswagen , at least according to Ford Australia president Andrew Turkic. In a recent interview of Car Sales with Andrew Turkic, Ford Australia president, he exuded confidence and following project. Ford has a luxury and an advantage in terms of time and fame. So it stands reason to say that Ford has a head start over Volkswagen. He added that Ford boasts its really strong history and its status as forerunner in the vehicle industry. In addition, Ford Ranger Raptor has a really strong global influence. So the focus of Ford now is on how to keep improving and raising our brand reach, whereas for Volkswagen it is a different story. Ford and Volkswagen are already in different stages. While Ford still doesn’t reveal details about the new Ranger, Turkic added that Ford has adopted a brand new concept for developing its products, especially for its pickup truck. So buyers are able to witness philosophy around continuous improvement. Andrew Turkic also shared the corporate culture of Ford, Ford is always committed to the philosophy around continuous improvement. As a car maker, if you want to be a successful player in 180 countries, and also get to the core DNA of Ranger, you have to push and go ahead. Because the bar is set high and the expectations are set high. In June, Volkswagen admitted that without the partnership with Ford, the Amarok would not have survived to a second generation. According to Thomas Sedan, chairman of the board of management of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, it is on earth our customers that get the benefits. There is no denying that without the cooperation we would not have developed a new Amarok. The cooperation between Ford and Volkswagen not just involves the new Ranger and Amarok. They are just small portion of this business cooperation. As part of the partnership between the companies, VW will also develop a new van for Ford based on the Volkswagen Caddy, while Ford will make a electric vehicle based on MEB platform. It is said to be highly differentiated. Beyond the two available engines, the 2022 Ranger Raptor will be provided with custom Fox shocks, off-road tires, enlarged brakes and a wider track to enhance its off-loading abilities. It will also absorb the advantages from other upgrades across the rest of the updated Ranger family. This merits may include new safety features and a more upmarket interior with larger digital displays. With this sharpened merit in hands, Ford Ranger Raptor, I believe, will create another legend.
