Ford Ranger Raptor, le pick-up roule des mécaniques

[ad_1]

NOUVEAUTÉ – Le Ford Ranger, pick-up le plus vendu en France, marche sur les traces de son grand frère américain F-150. Il se décline dorénavant en version vitaminée Raptor.

Le Ford Ranger, dans sa version Raptor, gagne en musculature. Son apparence plus agressive évoque tout de suite le F-150 Raptor, avec ses pare-chocs et extensions d’ailes noires, ainsi que ses pneus tout-terrain. Mais le Ranger Raptor ne se contente pas d’un nouveau kit carrosserie, puisque c’est le département Ford Performance qui s’est chargé de son développement.

Le Ranger Raptor affirme son tempérament de machine tout-terrain, en s’équipant d’un pare-chocs avant indépendant, de passages de roues élargis, d’un châssis ultra-renforcé et de suspensions indépendantes avec amortisseurs Fox Racing. Il ne faut toutefois pas s’attendre à trouver le V6 de 450 chevaux et 691 Nm de couple du monstrueux F-150 sous le capot du Ranger.

Pour l’Europe, le Ford Ranger Raptor se contentera d’un 2 litres biturbo de 213 ch. On pourra néanmoins se consoler avec les 500 Nm de couple et la consommation bien plus maîtrisée de ce petit moteur carburant au gazole, couplé à une boîte automatique comptant 10 rapports. Cela n’empêchera pourtant pas le Raptor d’être handicapé par le supermalus de 10.500 euros.

Le nouveau «Terrain Management System» propose six modes de conduite. Un mode «Normal» pour privilégier le confort, «Sport» pour une conduite plus dynamique, «Neige/Gravier/Herbe» pour les surfaces glissantes, «Sable/Boue» pour assurer une meilleure motricité, «Rocheux» pour les surfaces accidentées et «Baja» pour la conduite tout-terrain à grande vitesse.

Le Ford Ranger Raptor est disponible à la commande dès maintenant, au tarif de 56 550 euros. Les premiers véhicules arriveront dans les show-rooms dans le courant du second trimestre 2019.

Le Ford Ranger Raptor se contentera d'un 4-cylindres 2 litres diesel biturbo de 213 ch.

London Christmas tree curbside pickup returns for one day only – London

[ad_1]

Londoners are being warned that they only get one chance for curbside Christmas tree pickups this year and to get them to the curb as quickly as possible.

The city will be collecting Christmas trees curbside on Monday.

“We ask that Londoners have their trees placed at the curb by 7 a.m. Monday, no matter your regular garbage pickup day,” said City environment director Jay Stanford.

Stanford said crews will only collect from each neighbourhood once.

“Make sure to remove all decorations or tree stands are removed and if you put it out in a plastic bag, remove that as well,” he said.

Residents can also bring Christmas trees and other holiday greenery to one of the city’s EnviroDepots, which are open Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

If you miss tree collection Sunday and Monday, Stanford suggests placing your Christmas tree in your backyard to provide winter protection for birds, then putting it at the curb for the spring yard waste collection.

You can check the city’s online Zone Finder for spring yard waste collection schedules.
