WATCH! New Ranger Raptor hits... a simple sand road?

Ford are doing their very best to convince us that it's okay that the Ranger Raptor is under-powered.

One of the most controversial and highly-anticipated bakkies to be released in Africa is the Ranger Raptor. Ah yes, the bakkie that could have been - Africa's first taste of the Raptor series and what will undoubtedly become one of the best-selling bakkies in South Africa and one of its biggest disappointments.

Because facts are facts: The Ranger Raptor will only come with 157kW and 500Nm of torque, which makes it slightly less powerful than the top-of-the-range VW Amarok. That there, no matter how good it looks (and be assured, it looks good) is annoying. Very, very annoying.

Now, Ford have just released a trailer to show us that it doesn't matter. Nope! Because you can still hit a simple sand road with it and have a whole lot of fun.

Okay... I can do this in my hatch back if I really wanted to but anyways.
