2019 Ford Ranger Raptor 13-Speed Transmission Engine & Specs – With a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine, the new Ford Ranger Raptor pumping systems out a reputable 210 horsepower (156 kilowatts) and 369 pound-feet (500 Newton-yards) of torque. That positions it effectively in competition with some other midsize pickups geared towards off-road efficiency. All that power is directed by means of a 10-speed transmission – but it really was not constantly the first selection.
In a conversation with John Fallu, Transmission and Driveline Architectural Director for Ford Asia Pacific, technicians allegedly analyzed multiple versions of the gearbox, from 8- and 9-speed transmissions, even all the way up to 12 and 13 speeds. The 10-speed gearbox chiseled from the Raptor, however, demonstrated to be the best option, simply being each highly processed and capable.
The selection to use the 10-speed transmission was apparently mainly because it achieved “the two our refinement and performance benchmarks,” continuing Fallu. “The torque converter is picked especially for striving to meet up with – and increase – the launch performance of the engine, so as to fulfill consumer anticipations.”
As of but, Ford has not declared the Ranger Raptor in the U.S., but we expect to see the performance pickup stateside in just several months. The American-market Ranger will supposedly use a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and twenty-speed automatic. That identical engine generates 310 horsepower (231 kilowatts) and 350 pound-feet (475 Newton-yards) in the 2018 Mustang.
