Ford Ranger Raptor: Wild Upgrades by Carlex - Rugged Pack & Wild Interior

Carlex Design, a renowned aftermarket specialist, has unveiled an enticing new package for the all-new Ford Ranger, delivering striking exterior updates and a transformative interior makeover without altering the powertrain.

The CRX T-Rex package enhances the truck's already rugged appearance with a collection of fresh components. On the outside, the truck receives a toughened front end with a new bumper and radiator guard, both finished in the robust and durable Line-X material, which is also applied to other features like the mirror caps and side steps.

Additionally, Carlex adds a hood scoop, style bar, and roof cover for the auxiliary lights, all boasting the Line-X treatment, with the option for carbon versions. The package further includes distinctive T-Rex graphics, black 18-inch wheels, and painted brake calipers, giving the Ranger Raptor a more aggressive and striking presence on the road.

Bespoke Interior Makeover: Vibrant & Bold

Inside the cabin, Carlex exhibits its expertise, delivering a complete transformation featuring a prominent use of bright orange color accents. The Polish-based design house excels in crafting bespoke interiors for the automotive and aviation industries.

The interior makeover includes a leather-trimmed dashboard and steering wheel, premium natural leather upholstery, reshaped seats upholstered in a combination of leather and Alcantara, an Alcantara headliner, and painted air vents.

Special decorative elements with the CRX T-Rex name further distinguish the pickup's interior, completing the unique and bold design. The Ford Ranger Raptor destined for the US market comes equipped with Ford's powerful twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, boasting an impressive 405 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Meanwhile, the European version, introduced in 2022, offers 288 hp and 362 lb-ft of torque, along with the option of Ford's EcoBlue diesel engine, producing 210 hp and 391 lb-ft of torque. The Ranger Raptor comes with an array of off-road enhancements, including optional 17-inch wheels, 33-inch BFGoodrich all-terrain KO3 tires, eight drive modes, an enhanced suspension system, and an active valve exhaust for an exhilarating driving experience.

Priced starting from $56,960, including the $1,595 destination charge, the Ford Ranger Raptor will be available for purchase in the US market this summer. For those seeking an even more distinct and luxurious touch, the Carlex CRX T-Rex package is available at a cost of 99,900 euros (approximately $110,782), which includes a Certificate of Authenticity.

Carlex has established itself as a prominent name in upgrading various makes and models over the years, offering exclusive packages for renowned vehicles like the Ferrari Purosangue and Rolls-Royce Cullinan, among others.

This isn't the first time Carlex has shown love for the Ranger, as they had previously introduced a wild kit for the previous-generation Ranger off-roader. With the combination of Ford's rugged engineering and Carlex Design's bold aesthetics, the new Ford Ranger Raptor CRX T-Rex promises an unparalleled driving experience, both on and off the beaten path.
