If you love the concept of the Ford F-150 Raptor but find it too big and expensive, you're in luck: The 2024 Ranger Raptor is now here to rightsize the Raptor pickup, both dimensionally and financially.

The new Ranger Raptor is a tidier and more maneuverable alternative to its F-150-based big brother, as it is 6.8 inches narrower, 21.7 inches shorter from nose to tail, and stands 3.9 inches lower.

Its 5.3-second 60-mph time is only a tenth of a second off the F-150 Raptor, but its 50-to-70-mph passing time is better by the same amount.

The Ranger Raptor's 128.7-inch wheelbase is 16.7 inches stubbier than the bigger Raptor's, so it will turn tighter and be less likely to drag its belly when cresting hills.

At 5372 pounds, the Ranger Raptor weighs 392 pounds less than a Bronco Raptor, which explains why its slightly detuned 405-hp version of the twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 they share can move it both to 60 mph and through the quarter-mile 0.3 second quicker.

Most of the controls are physical switches and knobs, but a few important ones have been pushed onto the vertically oriented 12.4-inch touchscreen.

Inside, Ranger Raptor occupants benefit from the same interesting interior design and attractive material choices as introduced on the regular Ranger—if they can live with the mostly black interior.

The wider rear suspension allows for a wider bed, and Ford was able to increase the inner fender spacing to 48.2 inches so four-foot plywood and drywall panels can lay flat on a surface that's up to seven feet long with the tailgate open.

The Ranger Raptor rolls on 33-inch-tall BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO3 rubber whose formal size is LT285/70R-17. Beadlock-capable wheels are a $1495 option that our test truck didn't have.

The rear suspension does without an anti-roll bar and serves up 10 inches of travel.
