Will the Ranger Raptor Challenge the 2018 F-150 Raptor's Throne?

The 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor has enjoyed certain privileges atop the Ford lineup's throne. From high-speed off-road racing performance, to swanky interiors, to lavish reviews by truck websites, it must feel pretty good to be a Raptor.

But what's this? A new rival has been sighted Down Under—Ford Australia is developing a Ranger Raptor.

Will this mid-size off-roading truck usurp the F-150 Raptor's glory? It certainly looks good kicking up clouds of dust in the dunes of the Aussie outback. For the time being, however, the answer is an ambiguous, "Maybe? But most likely not."

It's clear from the camo that the 2018 Ranger Raptor is still only a prototype, so we don't have any specs on it yet. However, since it's the smaller of the two Raptor pickups, chances are it will have less muscle, and will lack the wide stance to pull off the truly death-defying power-slides the F-150 Raptor is famous for.

We're also not certain when, or even if, the Ranger Raptor will be launched in America. So for now, the crown is safe.
