Ford Ranger RTR is a 'budget Raptor'

Ford Ranger Rtr Tuning 2019 Sema 5

The SEMA show is full of wild and wacky customised cars and the bakkie segment has seen some interesting creations. Check out the Ford Ranger RTR.

The United States is one of the few countries which doesn't get the Ford Ranger Raptor, but there are many companies who will build you something similar. Enter RTR, famous for their stellar work on the Ford Mustang, who will build you the Ranger RTR.

It boasts great upgrades, both visual and mechanical, so it looks good, but it's the off-road capabilities which have us most interested. The Ford Ranger RTR receives Fox Performance coilovers, 265/70 Nitto Ridge Grappler offroad tyres and a performance exhaust system. There are fender flares, front fender vents as well as RTR's LED grille. There are also some stylish graphics adorning the flanks.

“The Ranger RTR has the capability to traverse all terrains and looks great doing it”, said RTR President Vaughn Gittin Jr. “I especially love the RTR Graphics Package featuring our take on a topographic map. The goal with the Ranger RTR is to inspire our customers to step out of the boundaries, get off the road, enjoy the outdoors and do some exploring.”

Do you think there's room for South African tuners to work their magic on non-Raptor Ford Rangers?
