The Ford Ranger Raptor has been on sale in South Africa for years. Well, that's not true, but if you looked at the average Ranger on our roads, you might be fooled into thinking so.
South African bakkie enthusiasts wanted the Raptor nameplate on their cars so desperately than many were willing to sacrifice good taste and fitted fake Raptor kits to their bog-standard Rangers.
Thankfully, Ford SA has finally introduced the real Ranger Raptor to our market. They're having a hard time convincing the South African public that this really is a special car, and not just a Ranger with some stickers and large tyres.
In this video, we set out on a two-day adventure with the Raptor, and we were left in no doubt that this is one special vehicle.
As Ciro says, there is just nothing else like it.
