Can't wait for a Ford Ranger Raptor? How about a Roush-tuned Ford Ranger instead? Check it out!

With two years of development and testing under its belt, Roush Performance and Performance Centre has unveiled a Roush Ford Ranger for the South African market. The Roush Performance upgrade which is available in three stages and has been designed to be "within Ford's performance tolerances" ensuring that the engine won't be overly stressed.

The Roush upgrades are also fully supported by Ford Motor Company of South Africa, which bodes well.
