Video shows grueling abuse in the lab, Arizona, Australia Outback

Watch Ford torture its pickups. Testing starts in the lab then progresses to the proving grounds and finally goes through intense real-world challenges.

Hopefully this means the United States will get some version of the truck

The Ford Ranger Raptor debuted two months ago, just a short while after the U.S. debut of the 2019 Ford Ranger. As the name implies, the Ranger Raptor takes the formula from the Ford F-150 Raptor and distills it down into a mid-size package. While a U.S. version hasn't been announced, these new spy shots give us hope that the Chevy Colorado ZR2 and Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro will have some flashy new company.
