The Ranger Raptor has already been announced for the Australian market. But, Ford has not yet announced it for the US market. This Ranger Raptor patent design filing appearing on the Australian IP office's website provides strong evidence that it is indeed destined for the US. In fact, the patent images seen here may very well be actual patent images of a US model. We draw this conclusion based on the fact that 1) the Ranger Raptor depicted here features a sport bar (the model shown on the Ranger Raptor Australian website does not) 2) the images depict a sliding rear window, which is distinct to U.S. spec Rangers and 3) the patent filing references a corresponding US Design Patent Application (Number: 29/634999) filed on January 26, 2018 in The United States. Our search for this design patent application on the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) website did not yield the US design patent application, but the USPTO allows patent applications to be kept private by the applicant until the patent is approved/issued. Considering Ford has not yet announced the Ranger Raptor for the US market, it would make sense for the company to keep the design patent application private. Of course this isn't the first strong evidence that the Ranger Raptor is destined for the US market as a LHD prototype has already been spotted testing in the US (Michigan). See our spy video below.
