This article is about a/an series entry (the 20th) in the Super Sentai series.

Gekisou Sentai Carranger (激走戦隊カーレンジャー Gekisō Sentai Kārenjā, translated into English as Racing Squadron Carranger) was Toei's 20th production of the Super Sentai television series. Its footage was used in the American Power Rangers Turbo. Carranger was unique in its nature, due to being a Sentai series that is portrayed as a parody of the Sentai genre itself.

On January 6, 2017, Amazon listed pre-orders for the US DVD release of Carranger by Shout! Factory for an April 25, 2017 release.[1][2] This makes Carranger the fifth official US release of a Super Sentai Series.


Dappu, a young alien from the planet Hazard, is forced to leave his home after it is destroyed by the Universal Reckless Driving Tribe Bowzock, a gang of wild thugs who run rampant throughout the universe by causing chaos on planets before ultimately blowing them up. Dappu has knowledge of "Carmagic", a special magic connected to five "car constellations" that give great power. When the Bowzock decide their next target of destruction as Earth, Dappu discovers the power of the five constellations within five beings on the planet, who possess Carmagic within them and the ability to harness the power into becoming the Gekisou Sentai Carranger which can stand up to the space thugs. The five turn out to be five workers at the Pegasus Garage who unknowingly had chosen these constellations as their "dream cars" they ultimately wish to build. When Dappu enters into their lives, they are forced to become the Carranger and stand up to the Bowzock...whether they want to or not!

As battle with the Bowzock escalates, the Carranger's problems become aggravated as many unknown, unexpected factors enter into the conflict, including an alien officer with an obsession with traffic safety greater than the team, a malicious instructor, a troublemaking alien fangirl and even a villain falling for a member of the team! Yet with all the crazy factors and problems they face, everything eventually comes to be tied together towards one force: an interstellar mastermind with a twisted plot regarding the Earth's destruction!

Stage Shows


  • The commercial sequence for Carranger, or "Eyecatch", showing a Ranger Vehicle racing forward was kept for Power Rangers Turbo
  • Though without a traditional Sixth Ranger, this season possessed a wannabe Sixth in Radietta Fanbelt, a fangirl who claimed to be the "White Racer" of the season. An official Sentai fan becoming a Sixth would actually occur in Gokaiger.
  • This is the first of two series to change the opening theme song: from episode 14 to the end, the "Full Accel" version of the "Gekisou Sentai Carranger" is used as the theme song, with the original version only being used again in the closing credits of the final episode. The only other season to do this completely changed the entire opening.
  • This season possesses the first time that a mecha has interchangable parts, as shown with the bizarre formation of the Scramble Intersection Robo. While used for comedy at this time, this would foreshadow the multi-combination mechs that would become standard in Sentai starting with Gaoranger.
  • This is the second season with a "vs. movie" but the first to treat it as an event instead of merely an extra episode as Ohranger had.
    • Though Carranger was not treated as an anniversary season due to Ohranger, it would be the only one within a 5-year sequence which would have a traditional "vs movie", due to the first "vs. Super Sentai" movie appearing 5 years later with the anniversary being counted by season instead of by years since Gorenger.
  • While many Western fans call Carranger "The Season that saved Super Sentai", this statement has no basis in fact. An interview with cast member Yuji Kishi ,[3], [4], [5] showed that no-one who worked on the show knew about this.
    • Much of such from a western fan’s perspective is rooted in a belief that because Chouriki Sentai Ohranger's ratings were worse than Carrangers (by only .3%), that the series was under the threat of cancellation because of such low viewership, and thus was saved by the money made by toy sales from Carranger. The reality is actually the opposite, with Ohranger’s sales far in excess making up for such, with Carranger in comparison not doing as well, although still stronger than prior years. [6] Even comparing ratings versus ratings, Ohranger’s decline was overall stable and it’s cause accounted for (see Notes under Chouriki Sentai Ohranger), while Carranger’s viewership had a consistent decline until its later episodes. The ratings would only show proper recovery with Denji Sentai Megaranger [7], which was ironically the first of several series to suffer from slashed budgets.
    • The reality is that it was Choujin Sentai Jetman that save Super Sentai from Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman's performance.
