Ford responded to an web troll with a sturdy assertion in opposition to homophobia, developing a rainbow and glittery gold-wrapped truck that paraded the streets of Cologne, Germany to rejoice Delight Day.
“Really homosexual” is how 1 net denizen explained the new Ranger Raptor Specific Version pickup in a comment on a Ford Europe social media put up. The corporation seen and, in response, took the concept of a pretty gay Ranger Raptor and ran with it. In accordance to Ford, the commenter wrote in reaction to the reveal, “Very well… that is a neat car or truck! -But that blue shade is extremely Homosexual!! Hey Ford! Paint in BlackNGold or camo!”
The commenter sparked a comeback from Ford. On June 25, the firm tweeted an animation of the Raptor in its rainbow livery in help of the LGBTQ+ community.

But then Ford went 1 move additional and in fact constructed a Ranger Raptor in mentioned livery. Ford took the “black and gold” suggestion pretty much, wrapping the truck in the glitziest gold 1 can visualize. In excess of the gold, a rainbow swirls around the truck, ending with a pink coronary heart on the tailgate.
What Ford has dubbed the Pretty Homosexual Raptor designed its debut at the Christopher Street Day parade, a LGBTQ+ celebration in Cologne. Incidentally, this isn’t the first time Ford has participated at the party with a rainbow-themed auto. In 1997 Ford produced a Ka Pickup prototype out of the Ka compact hatch. The strategy in no way designed it to generation, but it was afterwards repainted in rainbow shades by Ford’s inner World (Gay, Lesbian Or Bi-Sexual Workforce) team for use in Christopher Avenue Working day celebrations for lots of yrs.
