Dude we are on the butt of what looks like to be a ranger raptor unclad. Look at that dude. It says ranger. It says raptor and it's completely unclad. Look at that, so they sell the ranger raptor in australia and in europe, and i think that might be an australian european model because look at the tail lights, those are like yeah they're, eu tail lights. It looks like yeah. I can see that there's a spare tire under there, where you normally have one there's a hitch but let's see it. We don't want to pass them too much because once they see me filming them there it's right here drive. Oh, it is right hand drive. Look at that, so it could be an australian ranger raptor. You get a little farther ahead, so we can get uh the front of it. The question is, of course, why are they testing an australian ranger raptor in the united states of america and there's? A front of it it's really cool, looking all right, slow down, let them pass. Would you and the reason i suspect, they're testing, a ranger raptor in america is not because you know they're doing their australian testing here in america it's, because there's one coming right now in australia it has a diesel. Can you slow down or no, i won't, have them passed, just slow down it's a traffic building behind me, just let them pass and then get behind them, yeah, just pull behind them yeah.
I suspect the reason that they're doing it here is not because you know they're going to do their testing for australian america, but because it's coming so what else can we see i'll kind of zoom in on it? Let'S go, take a look at it. Well, it looks like it still is a solid axle in the back at least yeah it's kind of hard to see definitely tow hooks yeah, but i don't see an exhaust now here's, where things get interesting right, because the australian raptor ranger is diesel. It'S, a diesel and it's, apparently not that quick it's, not all that zippy so i'm curious, maybe they're testing a new engine here in the us using the australian ranger raptor body. Well, you know, media reports do suggest that there is a ranger raptor coming right and we know uh that uh. This would be a perfect test bed perfect platform to pull out that diesel and put in something like what maybe the two seven yeah. You know that's what i would put in there right, because the two seven out of the uh, the two seven liter twin, turbo ecoboost out of the f 150, is a little rocket of a power plant and imagine it uh in that truck. You know that that would be way cool. It definitely looks a little bit wider than the standard ranger, but you know i don't know dad. I don't know if the design is finalized for america, because if they were gon na do a finalized design, it would be clad and they wouldn't have badging on it.
That'S got full badging on it. It says ranger raptor on the side. You know that they're not trying to disguise that at all, so i think it's, probably a powertrain, mule uh or some kind of development, mule yeah and we don't even know if they're gon na you know call it that, because you know with the bronco, we thought That there was gon na be uh at least initially a bronco raptor and now we're, seeing that it's a sasquatch right, uh they're using different branding for it i'm, not saying there's, not a bronco raptor coming uh, but at least initially uh. The top end is gon na, be a sasquatch. Well there you have it guys uh. What looks like a very promising uh development, at least for all you uh off road truck fans. Uh i'd, certainly love. Oh, there was a bronco. Did you miss this, and that was a sasquatch? If we stopped the video uh, maybe you could see it very quickly uh. So we know that they're up here, uh testing in colorado, uh and uh the things that they're testing i couldn't be more excited about. You want to close this out, hang on let's, see if we can use this camera. Oh use the camera. Oh there you go nice work tommy! We just uh are doing our first uh dirt review of the new defender that we just purchased and uh, because we got the tech package, it has a camera in the rearview mirror, and so you can get a really good look at it through that camera.
Well, actually, dad we have the camera, because we got the third third seat here. Yes, of course, yeah yeah, so uh there it is uh yeah anyway, i was gon na finish this off by saying uh. You know there's some very exciting products coming uh and i can't wait for 2020 to be over so that we can actually get behind the wheel of some of these. As always, this is roman yep and tommy, saying check out tfl truck tfl car tfl off road for the newest and greatest developments in off road stuff, and of course this is going to be in tfl. Now, where we do all of our prototype hunting uh.
