New tech helps Ford Ranger Raptor drivers find their way back after venturing off-road

The new Ford Ranger Raptor features a clever way of enabling drivers to find their way back after venturing off-road.

The new pickup drops a virtual pin every second via satnav so that drivers can more easily return to their original starting point.

Leo Roeks, director of Ford Performance said: “Breadcrumb navigation is a simple but effective way to help drivers know exactly how to retrace their route no matter where they are.”

The Ford Ranger Raptor is designed to overcome the most challenging off-road terrains in the world.

Powered by a Bi-turbo version of Ford’s 2L EcoBlue diesel engine and with a race-bred suspension featuring FOX shock absorbers, the Ranger Raptor is now on sale across Europe.
