Another teaser for the Ford Ranger Raptor has been released on the carmaker’s Australian and Thailand Facebook pages, focusing on the vigorous testing involved during the performance pick-up truck’s development.

As the video shows, the Ranger Raptor has been tested in dust, through water, on sand, for climbs and in mud to make sure it is built tough. The test mule is still covered up as before, but if the new US-market Ranger is any indication, we could be looking at something similar – albeit with more aggressive Raptor parts.

On the mention of the United States, the Ranger Raptor was tested in the toughest of environments, including the Borrego Desert as well as the Australian Outback. Even though we’ve only spotted right-hand drive mules in the past, it has been reported a left-hand drive model will be introduced to the US market as well.

Thailand will be the first recipient of the Ranger Raptor, as caption accompanying their Facebook post tell us to “prepare to meet the Ranger Raptor” soon. For now, specifications of the model are still a mystery, but it is likely a turbodiesel engine will be employed – a higher-tuned version of the 3.2 litre Duratorq, perhaps?
