    According to themotorreport, a new generation 2.0-litre four-cylinder twin-turbo diesel engine will be used to power the Ford Ranger Raptor.

    Looks like Ford's trying to position the Ranger Raptor directly against the Chevy Colorado ZR2 and its 4 cyl turbo diesel option! I hope though that like the ZR2 we also get a V6 version of the Ranger Raptor.

    We better see a V6 option because if the Ranger Raptor is only going to get a turbo diesel 4 cyl engine then less chance we'll get it in the U.S.

    If it's supposed to compete directly again the Colorado ZR2 then we should see two engine options. But I was hoping that for the diesel engine we would have gotten the 3.2L 5-cyl turbodiesel "Puma" engine rather than the 4 cyl turbodiesel like this article is reporting.

    If a small diesel engine is your only option and the 2.7 eco-boost or similar V6 is not offered ....I will be buying my FIRST new Chevrolet. I never thought I'd ever do that.

    Keep in mind that this is an Asia Pacific spec vehicle. Diesel is getting hammered hard in the US and EU right now. Based on that and a Ford Exec saying that US customers expect a gas engine, I wouldn't expect a diesel in the US. A high output 2.3 or a 2.7 are the most likely options.

    Dying for the 3.2-litre five-cylinder diesel engine. My '17 Rover Sprt HSE has V6 turbo diesel and I am sold.
