You Can Now Race the Ford Ranger Raptor in Forza Horizon 4
If you’re one of the many, many folks who was disheartened to hear that the Ford Ranger Raptor won’t be making the leap to the United States (at least not for this generation, that is), then you may be able to take some comfort the next time you pick up your sticks and turn on your Xbox One. Starting this month, you can find the Ford Ranger Raptor in Forza Horizon 4, as was originally announced when it became the first vehicle to make its debut at Gamescom last year.

“There’s a genuine fun-factor about this unique vehicle, a rally-style pick-up that will bring smiles to drivers and gamers across the world,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales, and Service. “It’s also a stunning addition to the virtual Ford garage that already includes some of the most driven vehicles on Forza, and we know gamers everywhere will enjoy all the on- and off-road thrills Ranger Raptor has to offer.”
Forza Horizon 4 launched in 2018 and emphasizes open-world racing with its Route Creator, which allows players to design and share a custom route anywhere in the game world. The ever-expanding roster includes over 450 vehicles of varying rarity and available through in-game shops and downloadable content.
Ford is one of the best-represented automakers in the game, with a roster that includes the No. 2 Ford GT Mk II that won Le Mans in 1966, a classic 1975 Ford Bronco, the 1971 Mustang Mach 1, a 1946 Ford Super Deluxe Station Wagon, and, now, the Epic-rarity Ranger Raptor.
Forza Horizon 4 is available through the Microsoft Store or wherever games are sold.
