It goes without saying that the Ford Ranger Raptor is one hell of a truck—2.0-liter bi-turbo engine with 210hp and 500Nm of torque, 10-speed automatic transmission, performance-oriented suspension setup, and FOX-manufactured shock absorbers? That’s a pretty nice package if you’re looking for a truck that can do a few jumps every now and then.
That said, it comes at a price. The Ford Ranger Raptor carried a P1,898,000 introductory price tag when it was launched in the Philippines back in 2018. Its asking price, though, has since climbed up to P1,998,000.
Pricey? Well, it depends on how much you value what the Ranger Raptor brings to the table. Another thing to consider is how much the vehicle actually costs in other markets, and when you see the kind of figures this thing is selling for outside our country, you might be forced to reconsider if you think Ford Philippines is asking too much for the performance truck.
In neighboring Thailand and Vietnam, the Ranger Raptor goes for around 1,699,000 Thai Baht and 1,198,000,000 Vietnamese Dong, respectively. That’s around P2.6 million.
Head on over to Australia and New Zealand, meanwhile, and you’re looking at AUD85,579 AUD (P2.7 million) and NZD84,990 NZD (P2.6 million). And, finally, if you head to a dealership as far out as the United Kingdom, you can grab a unit for £40,445 (P2.54 million)—the most affordable of all the markets mentioned here.
It makes you think, doesn’t it? So, did you figure the Ranger Raptor would be more expensive in outside markets or were you surprised to find out the price differences? Let us know in the comments.
