The 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor will be easier to tow with thanks to a new feature.

    The Ranger Raptor now receives Ford’s Pro Trailer Backup Assist as standard. This feature debuted locally in the F-150 full-size pickup last year.

    It’ll appear as part of what Ford calls a MY24.5 update, with vehicles entering production in March and arriving at showrooms mid-year.

    UPDATE, 02/05/2024Ford Australia has increased prices of the Ranger Raptor from June 1, 2024 for MY24.5.

    “The price adjustments are consistent with the evaluation of market conditions we regularly undertake across our product portfolio, which take into consideration a number of different external factors such as currency and material cost considerations,” said a Ford Australia spokesperson.

    Beadlock-capable alloy wheels and special Raptor decals are no longer available.

    “The driver ‘steers’ the trailer via the outer ring of the drive mode controller on the centre console,” said Ford advanced driver assist systems engineer Zack McIntyre.

    “As the driver turns the dial, the steering wheel, which the driver doesn’t need to touch during the manoeuvre, turns to direct the trailer where it needs to go.”

    To activate the Pro Trailer Backup Assist, the driver needs to press the trailer icon on the drive mode selector dial, then use the outer ring to steer the trailer.

    There’s a “special sticker” placed on the draw bar of the trailer that helps the system track the trailer angle when reversing.
