That's not the US market vehicle. No amber markers in the fenders, and I expect the US spec to get the three amber lights in the grill too.

Are you sure?
The reason I question the lighting is the US just changed some of their vehicle rules and i think it starts sometime in 2023. We get those fanicer adaptive headlights (forgot the name they use) and some other changes that out us more in like with the ROW. So I thought if they were marketing this as 2024 then perhaps this was the one.

The 3 amber lights in the grill are an actual legal requirement for vehicles wider than 2032mm (80in). And I have heard stories of people getting "a talking to" (not sure if there's an actual legal statement against it) for having them on vehicles narrower than that, since it can cause confusion to the very few who actually know and understand their purpose.
A quick search shows that the Ranger Raptor is "only" 79.8in wide, just under the requirement. So I'm not sure if Ford will push the limits of the law to add them to the Ranger Raptor just in order to keep that Raptor look or not. I guess we'll see. Or if they'll just make it wide enough to require them like they did with the Bronco Raptor.

Yeah I agree. Not sure this is full US spec truck. Required or not, those amber leds have become popular mods. I just wanna see the regular US Ranger already…

As someone pointed out before. The requirement is actually for vehicles over a certain width. Having them on and not meeting that width requirement may be illegal. I am not 100% sure on that, but thats what the previous poster suggested.
Anywho, i agree i just want to see the damn thing already. i have a 2018 F150 so i can wait, but i really don't want to. I have been cross shopping over vehicles, but nothing meets that "goldilocks" level for me. Not too big, not too small, good performance.... hard to find.

The three amber maker lights in the front of the vehicle were not what I was referring to. In the US you must have an amber marker/reflector on the forward side of the vehicle, your outgoing Rangers have it in the wheel arch, the Bronco Raptor has it just behind the headlights, the new Ranger will have it in the wheel arch also. There is clearly a moulding where that light will go on the Ranger Raptor, and the pictured vehicle doesn't have them.
Edit, added the image. Circled is what I'm talking about.

It looks way better than the Bronco Raptor. Thank God they didn't use those ugly kiddie pool flares and it has normal looking moulded ones.

looks of the Ranger Raptor is a win. Although I’m kind of fond of my 22 XLT Ranger with a Rocky Ridge pkg. I’ve ditched the front license plate bracket and added a hard tonneau cover and window tint since the photo.

The Bronco Raptors clearance lights are in the mirrors. You circled the amber reflector/side marker.

The Ranger Raptor you see here is just a buck meaning it’s barely a functioning shell. It’s basically just a concept hand made tophat on the basically finished 2.7/10r60 chassis.
