2021 Ford Ranger Engine
2021 Ford Ranger Engine Ford’s all-important 2021 Ranger update is likely to respond to the prayers of many enthusiasts, both petrol and diesel to be used with turbo V6 engines. A source inside Ford’s You Yangs proving ground confirmed that combined with significantly updated tiles, the Ranger engine line-up will be getting a comprehensive rework for the next update.
While the future of the 2.0-liter four-liter pot currently mounted on the Ranger remains uncertain, the 2021 Ford Ranger Engine range will add a pair of V6 turbo engines. Both the wheels are a 3.0-liter single-turbo Power Stroke diesel and a 2.7-liter twin-turbo ‘Nano’ Ecoboost petrol is currently being tested in Australia.
The second generation of ‘Nano’ Ecoboost debuted in 2018 and has a series of changes from the 3.5-liter Ecoboost attached to the F-150 Raptor. When the normal F-150 is installed, the dual-turbo V6 produces a maximum power of 242kW at 5000rpm, while 542Nm of torque is delivered at just 2750rpm. If Ford sells a petrol V6 Ranger in Australia, this will be the strongest traditional double cabin you can buy, by a significant margin.

However, this engine mind is likely to be being developed with the front of the North American market. That doesn’t mean Australians will miss it, but the high-power petrol dual cabin will yet be offered by any local manufacturer.
The 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine is much more likely to be offered in Australia. The Power Stroke motor family, which was first produced in 1994, is not exactly in its youth. The 3.0-liter single-turbo V6 Power Stroke diesel was first introduced last year in the Ford F-150, producing 186kW and 597Nm. When plugged into the F-150, the engine has a towing capacity of 5189 kg.
The 3.0 Power Stroke with graphite iron engine block and aluminum alloy cylinder heads is designed to save weight. Remember the Ford Ranger Raptor mule seen earlier this week? One of the readers of our sister magazine, 4×4 Australia, claims to have seen the same vehicle full of fuel. The problem is, the Ford Engineer 98 was pumping gasoline from the octane.
Initially, Ford was believed to be evaluating a set version of the 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder Ecoboost engine as an option for the U.S. Ranger Raptors. However, the Blue Oval backburner seems to have put this on, opting for more cylinders to get the power levels he wants instead.
The wheels scooped the 2021 Ford Ranger earlier this year, photographed during a design model transit, giving us a clear indication of the dual cabin look. When the 2021 Ford Ranger Engine contacted the Australian Wheels, he declined to confirm the news, saying instead the company always wanted to improve its vehicles. Matt Moran, Ford Australia Communications Director, said: “We are really proud of how much Australians embrace Ranger.”
“We are always looking to continuously improve the product – such as the heavy suspension option and the addition of FX4 to the MY2020 lineup. We don’t have anything to share yet.”
