nach many teasers other spy photos, the next generation Ford ranger truck has finally been revealed. the truck It’s making its world debut, so the truck we’ll see in the US could have some minor appearance changes, and not all engine options will be available here. But overall, this is the new rangerand it should look pretty much the same.
We’ve already seen a lot of the Ranger from the outside, thanks to the aforementioned. spy photos and teasers. It is much more square than the previous model, and the front fascia is a mix of Dissident other F-150 signs. Those headlights will be available with matrix LEDs so parts can be dimmed for oncoming traffic, although we doubt the functionality will be available in the US The sides have some character lines that extend all the way to the rear fenders. Those fenders also feature new integrated steps for easy access to the bed, a bit like the bumper steps seen on GM Trucks and the Hyundai santa cruz. The tailgate will also have a workbench available, as in the F-150.
The interior is a major improvement over the previous model, with the most obvious change being the introduction of a huge vertical touchscreen. It is available in two sizes, 10.1 or 12 inches. It’s nicely integrated into the dash, flanked by slatted vertical air vents with fun accents. It looks like a digital instrument cluster will also be available. In the center console there is an electronic gear stick, which replaces the more mechanical unit of the outgoing Ranger.
The full dimensions of the Ranger have not been provided, but it should be similar to the outgoing model. The wheelbase has been increased a little less 2 Inches and the track has been increased by the same amount. The chassis has also been significantly overhauled. ford He claims it will work better too, because the rear shocks are set off the frame rails.
The engine compartment has been made more spacious with chassis updates, making room for the new available 3.0-liter engine. diesel V6, which we assume is similar to the F-150’s 250-horsepower unit. Single or twin turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engines will also be available. The only gasoline engine announced is the 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with which we are familiar. Of these engines, the four-cylinder gas is a shoe for the US market. The four-cylinder diesel will certainly not be offered here, and the V6 diesel seems unlikely, but not impossible, when it comes to the F-150 engine. Most likely it would be a turbocharged gas V6 as in the Ford bronco. The transmissions offered will be a 10-speed automatic and a six-speed manual. We are not holding our breath for the manual in the US, but again it is not impossible, as the Cerril foal it is available with a manual.
To be on the safe side, we’ll have to wait for the official US specs – hopefully we’ll get these at the same time as production and availability details. The foreign Rangers will begin production at factories in Thailand and South Africa next year. The American Rangers will likely continue to be built at the Michigan factory where they are currently located.
