2023 Ford Ranger Talking about the next-generation Ford Ranger, it is hoped that 2023 is still a big mystery. Speculation will occur whether the platform will share with the next Volkswagen Amarok. Ford has been making pickups for good and they’re pretty good at it.
Take the Ford F-150 as America’s best-selling vehicle for the last 43 years. It is reasonable, therefore, to think that Ford would take the risk of sharing something important with other carmakers. But fortunately, the Ford Ranger Amarok has a secret weapon to ensure it stays in front of it, although it is much shared.
And the secret weapon is actually someone: Andrew Birkin. He was recently promoted to ford Australia and New Zealand boss after becoming the global chief project manager for the current Ford Ranger, and his brother in the Everest SUV is not sold in America.
As we know the Ford Ranger was originally designed in Australia and has been on sale since 2011. Most of the next Ranger is also improving, so the helmet will give some focus to this important product which is a Birkin. In a recent interview with the Australian outlet CarSales, Birkic explained how the Ranger will have an edge over Amarok.
2023 Ford Ranger News
The main reason is that ford is spending more time with the new T7 architecture to be used by the 2023 Ranger. Birkin is working on the T7, and Ford has made some improvements to the Ranger while VW is involved. Birkin said this early start, along with Ford’s pickup expertise, would have been an advantage from the start.
The Ranger is also a core vehicle for Ford, especially in Australia. Not with VW, as their truck is not sold globally or close anywhere like Ford.
Birkin also said Amarok would have a different position from the next-generation Ford Ranger 2023, although he is not sure what will happen. On the other hand, the Ranger will have the same core positioning as it is today, only with every possible aspect of it being upgraded from the previous model.
Ford Ranger 2023 Model Review
Ford struck the truck segment on all fronts as they worked on the compact Maverick, electric F-150 Lightning, and redesigned Ranger. Speaking of the latter, the spy photographer has taken several Ranger prototypes that are undergoing testing in Michigan.
The most notable of the bunch is the prototype captured alongside the current Ranger Tremor. The two tracks have a similar appearance, but the camouflaged prototype appears to have more muscular bodywork. The redesigned model also appears slightly longer and the extra space will help keep the mid-size truck away from the upcoming Maverick.
While both trucks look equally sturdy, this prototype is fitted with less extreme Goodyear Wrangler Territory 255/65 R18 tires. The Tremor, on the other hand, has a 265/70 R17 General Grabber rubber.
Interestingly, the truck has a similar ‘sweeper-style’ rear suspension camouflage to the one the company used on the prototype F-150 Raptor. There’s no word on what the company is trying to hide, but the Ranger has a rear leaf spring instead of a Raptor roll.
As for the other prototypes, they are less disguised and this gives us a pretty good look on the front. As you can see, this model will follow in the footsteps of the F-150 and feature a prominent grille flanked by vertical headlights and LED daytime running lights.
Furthermore, the Super Cab prototype was spotted with a sports bar similar to the one found on the Ranger Wildtrak. This seems to suggest the Wildtrak trim could be added to the US lineup, once the redesigned model is launched.
Ford has been tight-lipped about the upcoming pickup but is expected to drive an upgraded version of the T6 platform like the Bronco. The two models could potentially share engine options and this means there could be a 2.3-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost with around 270 hp (201 kW / 274 PS) and 310 lb-ft (420 Nm) of torque and a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 developing the 310. hp (231 kW / 314 PS) and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque. Of course, previous reports suggest that the estimate is conservative.
Ford is also working on a new Ranger Raptor that could use the aforementioned V6 or the rumored EcoBoost V6 3.0-liter Bronco Warthog. The latter is said to produce up to 400 hp (298 kW / 406 PS) and 415 lb-ft (562 Nm) of torque.
Despite what’s under the hood, Ford has previously suggested the next-generation Ranger will debut early next year.
2023 Ford Ranger Specs
The next-generation Ford Ranger will get a bold new look and major power enhancements – including a selection of turbo diesel from its older brother, the F-150 V6 – and a long list of advanced technology to go on sale next year or early 2022.
Base on model Ford Ranger XL and Ford Ranger XLT sales volume we recommend that our artists’ impressions – based on images without early design work – will adopt the next-generation Ford F-150 design guidelines.
The extremely wide, expanded grill bars and C-shaped daytime headlights for the Ford F-150 seem designed to create a visual connection.
Although the Ford F-150 – the best-selling pick-up in North America for the past 43 years – is not planned for the Australian showroom, the new Ford Ranger will continue to be sold with it in the US, so some family bears similarities.
Also, for most of the 180 countries where the Ford Ranger is sold – more regions, in fact, than a McDonald’s restaurant – the company will be called the insider vehicle “our F Series.”

While the next-generation Ford Ranger will be based on the ‘T6’ platform developed in Australia (also a version that supports all-wheel drive Everest and the US Ford Bronco), significant changes in suspension geometry aim to improve performance on the road. and off-road performance.
As a side note, the “line axle ratio” (the distance between the cab and the front wheels) extended the time the engine compartment will be replaced to meet a wider V6 engine option.
The track is said to be slightly wider and the axle distance is slightly longer, to give the new model a larger and more stable footprint.
Highway cleaning angles are said to have been improved, especially since the new crane bar design at the rear will be better than the current model.
The rear bumper corners have a handy foot wedge (pictured below) to make the ute easier to get into and into the body.
Although the cabin is similar in size, the current Ranger of shape and space is expected to come for a large makeover, with high-quality materials, new digital instrument displays, large, high-resolution infotainment display, and top premium sound. The latest model.
A smartphone app called Ford Pass, which allows owners to remotely locate, lock and unlock cars (pictured below), will be introduced in the current Ford Ranger later this year before being adopted on the next-generation model.
2023 Ford Ranger Tech
The current generation Ford Ranger has led the ute market in advanced safety – and was the first in its class globally to receive a five-star rating, in 2011 – although its competitors have closed the gap.
The Ford Ranger 2022 is said to be making another big technological leap, with available safety aids such as blind zone alerts (already available on current US models, pictured below), rear traffic alerts, and 360-degree cameras, all complementing autonomous emergency braking. , radar cruise control, and speed mark recognition on current models.
Ford Australia hasn’t confirmed the details or the estimated timeline for the new generation Ranger, but if history is any guide, it will be due in late 2021 or early 2022.
The current-generation Ford Ranger went on sale locally in September 2011, followed by a facelift in 2015 and 2018.
The average life cycle for a full model change on a body-on-frame pick-up is 10 years.
Though unconfirmed, the Ford Ranger will be required to adopt a center airbag (pictured below) in the center of the two front seats – a new requirement to meet the increasingly stringent five-star crash safety rating to prevent contact between front passengers in collisions – unless the company can find a way. others to achieve the same level of occupant protection without extra air pockets.
The 2021 Isuzu D-Max and 2021 Mazda BT-50 utes will both come with center airbags when they go on sale this year, to make them at least eligible for a five-star rating after a full round of crash tests.
The new Ford Ranger must be in showrooms by the end of 2021 to meet the current five-star rating criteria deadline. The goal post to reach the five-star rating will move again in 2022 to stricter safety standards.
2023 Ford Ranger Raptor Specs
Ford Authority reports the Raptor will use a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, the powertrain of which is also used in the associated Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator.
This engine is currently available in two conditions: one with 272 kW of power and 515 Nm of torque, used in the Explorer Platinum, and another with 300 kW and 563 Nm used in the Explorer ST and the Aviator.
The latter is in the twin-turbo 2.7-liter V6 used in the dreaded Bronco, linked to the Ranger, which produces 231 kW and 540 Nm.
While Ford Australia misses the Bronco, we expect the gasoline-powered Ranger Raptor to come here as it has already been tested in right-hand drive form.
The prototype is fitted with BF Goodrich All-Terrain T / A KO2 tires and sports a bold new front end.
This flared arc hides the next-generation Fox Racing suspension, including direct valve technology, which is essentially a marketing pitch for adaptive damping.
The shocks should work a little differently from conventional adaptive damping systems, with the ability to offer more travel for off-road and crawl.
They should also feature a jump mode that boosts the suspension for heavy impact, softening the blow for the passengers. We’ve put together computer-generated footage from last year of what we expected from the Raptor, without camouflage.
The front will feature a honeycomb grille with heavy use of LED lighting and possibly Matrix LED headlights. The sliding rear window, which is currently available on North American Rangers, is also expected to be available.
Diesel dominates the Ranger segment, so Ford will still offer the oil burner in the Ranger, although it’s not clear if it will be offered in the Raptor.
CarExpert understands that the next-generation car could launch with the same 2.0-liter twin-turbo diesel four-cylinder as the current model and the option of a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 borrowed from the larger F-150 pickup with 190kW and 600Nm.
The latter will be available with permanent all-wheel drive (similar to the Volkswagen Amarok) with selectable low-range modes. The current 3.2-liter five-cylinder turbo-diesel engine is expected to be downgraded.
The big news for the ‘regular’ Ranger lineup is the introduction of a plug-in hybrid to the line. Expected to launch after other powertrains, the plug-in hybrid will use a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine.
It is expected to produce 270kW of power and 680Nm of torque, with a combined fuel economy of 3.0L/100km. The new Ranger lineup is also expected to offer the SYNC4 infotainment system with a portrait-oriented 12.8-inch infotainment screen.
Co-developed with the next-generation Volkswagen Amarok, the 2023 Ford Ranger is expected to launch in late 2022.
There is still extensive involvement from the Australian engineers, who are leading the development of the current Ranger. The new truck should also use the latest version of the current T6 platform.
Ford’s North American arm was late getting the T6 Ranger this time. It was introduced in the US in 2019, powered exclusively by a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine.
While there are now diesel-powered F-150, Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra, and Ram 1500 pickup trucks, the only other diesel in the Ranger segment are under the twin hoods of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon.
The plan to eventually introduce the Ranger Raptor to the US market is likely the impetus for Ford’s decision to use a powerful twin-turbocharged petrol engine in the Raptor, given the dearth of high-performance diesel engines in that market.
It also brings the Ranger Raptor closer to the original Raptor, the F-150 Raptor, which uses a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine.
2023 Ford Ranger Redesign
New 2023 ford ranger, off-road gearheads with Blue Oval tattoos were left crying in their axle oil in recent years when it was revealed the Raptor variant of the mid-sized Ranger pickup truck would not be offered in the North American market.
Now, a spy photographer has captured what looks like a Detroit road test engine – but you’ll forgive us if we remain more than a little skeptical.
You know, Ford has teased us with hints of the upcoming Ranger Raptor in the past. We’ve already reported on the variant seen in 2018, with more rumors in 2019, culminating in a lukewarm tremor that emerged in 2020 as a tidal wave. At least someone in Texas has the common sense to build on what Ford has (so far) refused to offer in this country.
But, with a redesigned Ranger on the horizon, there may be something to these new images. Shown here in prototype form, the truck sports a rugged BFGoodrich All-Terrains and a ride height that appears to exceed anything in the current Ranger catalog.
The six-lug wheels are track equivalent, but those dual exhaust pipes definitely aren’t—even if they’re slightly misaligned. Also, note that there is no provision for an integrated trailer towing kit (this may simply be due to the rocky nature of the test mule).
Those taillights also look different from those found on the current model, seeming to boomerang towards the center rather than widening outward like the current design. And did the third brake light move to the tailgate or was it the annoying reflective tape?
However, there’s also some camouflage on the underside of the truck in the form of poly fleece, a sign the manufacturer is hiding some of the new suspension pieces.
Ranger’s current Raptor-lite (Tremor) trim spreads Fox shocks, so there’s a good chance the upcoming Ranger Raptor will continue that relationship albeit with more powerful components.
2023 Ford Ranger Interior
In the past few weeks, we’ve spied on several Ford Ranger 2023 prototypes hanging around, including the left-hand-drive Ranger Raptor and rear coil spring suspension, as well as the Tremor prototype.
Now, we’re getting our first look at the interior of the 2023 Ford Ranger, though The Blue Oval does a great job of covering it up. Regardless, there are some important details here that are worth looking into.
While the dashboard is completely covered, we can still see the outer edges of the new 2023 Ranger infotainment screen dominating the center stack.
The new screen is definitely much bigger than the one in the current generation Ford Ranger, which measures up to a maximum of eight inches. In addition to its larger size, the new screen also looks much more modern than the previous unit.
This image of the interior of the Ford Ranger 2023 also reveals a new steering wheel design, which uses some lighter colored stitching for contrast.
There is also a start button integrated into the steering column, which is a bit unique. Overall, the design looks very clean and tidy, and overall much more modern than the current Ranger cabin.
As far as drivetrains go, recent rumors suggest that the 2023 Ford Ranger will be available as a plug-in hybrid which will be powered by an electric motor paired with Ford’s 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 petrol engine to produce a combined 270 kW (362 horsepower) and 680 Nm of torque ( 501 pound-feet). The 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor, on the other hand, is rumored to be powered by the Ford 2.7L EcoBoost V6. Either way, Ford’s 10-speed automatic is expected to remain the gearbox of choice.
The next-generation Ranger is expected to launch in 2022 for the 2023 model year, and will reportedly continue to use the Ford T6 platform, like the current model and the 2021 Ford Bronco, albeit with some modifications.
We’ll have more next-gen Rangers soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Ranger news and all-time Ford news coverage.
2023 Ford Ranger Australia
2023 Ford Ranger Raptor Australia, It’s no secret Ford is busy working on the fourth-generation Ranger ute, but it’s reportedly got a big surprise up its sleeve for the performance-focused Raptor flagship: a twin-turbo V6 petrol engine that’s bigger and therefore more powerful than expected.
According to Ford Authority, the next Ranger Raptor will be available with the EcoBoost 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 petrol engine, which is currently available at 272kW/515Nm (Ford Explorer) and 298kW/563Nm (Ford Explorer ST and Lincoln Aviator) track.
Of course, the Raptor is expected to be offered with the Ford Bronco’s 231kW/542Nm twin-turbo V6 EcoBoost petrol engine 231kW/542Nm from the Ford Bronco, which could still be available in other variants of the Ranger ‘T6.2’ that will rival Toyota’s. HiLux and a twin of the Volkswagen Amarok.
Either way, a 10-speed torque-converter automatic transmission will supposedly be behind it alongside the all-wheel-drive system and all the other usual Ranger Raptor goodies, including Fox shocks.
Why switch to a twin-turbo V6 petrol engine? Well, with the next-generation model, the Raptor is set to be part of the Ranger lineup in the US market for the first time, and there is no demand for a high-performance diesel unit there.
In contrast, the current Raptor comes with a 157kW/500Nm 2.0 liter EcoBlue twin-turbo four-cylinder diesel engine in Australia, with this unit expected to be one of the new Ranger’s entry-level options.
Of course, it’s possible the twin-turbo V6 petrol engine won’t be offered here at all, in which case the 186kW/597Nm 3.0-liter Power Stroke single-turbo diesel unit that the Ranger T6.2 anticipates will fill the gap, including in the Raptor.
As reported, other powertrain options for the next Ranger will include a 130kW/420Nm single-turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine and a plug-in hybrid incorporating a 2.3-liter EcoBoost single-turbo four-cylinder petrol unit. with at least one electric motor.
2023 Ford Ranger Splash
With the F-150 getting an all-electric Lightning version alongside an ICE-powered version this month, the full-size Blue Oval truck is getting all the attention. That said, the rendering we have here brings Ranger’s mid-sized offering under the spotlight by bringing the Splash derivative back to life.
These days, we might take the fourth-generation Raptor for granted, but we have to remember that the new nameplate returned to the North American market in 2018 (for the 2019 model year), after an eight-year gap.
However, the Splash badge comes from the second-generation Ranger who reigned about three decades ago. Introduced for the 1993 model year, it is a sporty trim that comes with a Flareside bed.
You know, that involves a pumped rear fender rather than the flush approach that defines the Styleside design typically used on trucks.
And while 2WD and 4WD versions are offered, they all come with an all-paw derivative front grille. The dynamic image is amplified through color-coded bumpers and a special “Splash” sticker that adorns the sides and tailgate.
As far as road connections are concerned, a lowered suspension that improves Ford’s road behavior is paired with steel wheels for the RWD model and an aluminum unit for the 4WD example.
Now, the pixel-fast effort we have here sees the current North American Ranger receive the nostalgic road-biased Splash treatment.
And while most of the distinguishing pieces from the original ’90s have been translated to the new truck, the Flareside approach got lost somewhere along the way. Graphic designer Jim (aka jlord8), who handles this rendering in his spare time, demonstrates the aspect in the description of the Instagram post below.
Meanwhile, in the real world, truck enthusiasts are waiting for the launch of the next-generation Ranger, which will go on sale next year as the 2023 model.
The newcomer is expected to address one of the most important gripes about the iteration it replaces: the fact that the terrain-taming Raptor derivative isn’t offered in North America. In fact, here’s the latest spy video for the 2023 Ford Ranger Raptor.
2023 Ford Ranger Lariat
2022 may be the last year the T6-based Ranger started in 2011. Ford is testing its successor as we speak in Australia and the US. On this occasion, carparazzi has captured three prototypes at the VEV Vehicle Integration & Systems Engineering Lab in Dearborn, MI.
VEV is a shortened version of vehicle evaluation and verification, which is why this prototype features an emergency exhaust system. All three mules are fitted with Goodyear Wrangler Territory rubber boots, and two of them are standard in addition to the new Bronco and the crew cabin Ranger Tremor.
Disguised as a whole, the mid-sized pickup truck is believed to have leaf springs in the rear. Only the Raptor has been spied on with a coil-sprung rear axle, and the Raptor rocks BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires measuring 285/75 by 17 inches that are 34 inches in diameter.
Based on the styling of the front grille, bumper, and fog lamps, this black-and-white camouflaged cabin crew pickup is the highest trim level on the Lariat. The extended-cab pickup mirrors the rear-hinged rear doors of the 2021 model and based on the length of the rear door, the legroom is narrow.
All three mules have roof rails, but only the black-clad prototype features the Wildtrak sailing aircraft for Australia and Europe. Unfortunately, the Ranger Wildtrak is not currently available in the United States or Canada.
Expected to launch next year for the 2023 model year, the new Ranger is a twin to the all-new Volkswagen Amarok. As far as North America is concerned, it’s safe to assume that customers will be offered the 2.3-liter EcoBoost as a base powerplant.
Higher up, Blue Oval can offer US customers a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 from the new Bronco and F-150.
There’s also talk of a plug-in hybrid with 362 horsepower and 502 pound-feet (680 Nm) of torque, according to rumors, and those rumors may be true as the Bronco will also go with a plug-in hybrid.
The Raptor could level up to the 3.0-liter EcoBoost from the Explorer ST, and elsewhere in the world, the EcoBlue and bi-turbo diesel engines ready to go have remained largely unchanged.
2023 Ford Ranger PHEV
Its PHEV system includes a four-cylinder petrol engine and an electric motor. Ford Europe announced its plans to produce environmentally friendly vehicles for its entire commercial vehicle portfolio.
The plan will bring plug-in hybrid vehicles and/or pure electric vehicles by 2024. In other words, the next-generation Ranger has been confirmed to have some form of electrification.
It was revealed by a Car Expert, as stated by a Ford spokesperson that the manufacturer will adopt PHEV regulations for its midsize trucks. The plug-in hybrid system has never been used before on this production model.
It looks like the model will combine a 2.3-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with an electric motor. It is not yet clear how much power the electric motor will use.
Reports are circulating that the engine will deliver maximum power of 362 horsepower (270 kilowatts) and maximum torque of 680 Newton-meters (502 lb-ft).
If these figures are valid, it means that the Ford Ranger PHEV 2023 will be much more powerful than the Raptor version currently in circulation. The current Raptor is powered by a 2.0-liter twin-turbo diesel engine that produces 210 hp (157 kW) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft).
Ranger’s equivalent SUV version, the Ford Everest, is also expected to sport the same PHEV powertrain. With this powertrain, both models have an average consumption of 1 liter and can travel a distance of 33.3 km.
As part of Ford’s partnership with VW, the upcoming Ford Ranger will also be based on the VW Amarok. So it makes sense that Volkswagen is also adopting a plug-in hybrid system.
Regarding the new Ranger Raptor, the Australian magazine suspects that it will use a 2.7-liter EcoBoost turbo V6 engine taken from the Bronco that produces 310 hp (231 kW) and 540 Nm of torque.
The new Ranger and Everest aren’t the only Fords to get an electric version of the model. Rumors are circulating that the Ford Bronco is also present in an electric vehicle version.
There was even a video circulating that showed off a Ford Bronco digital instrument cluster that has a special EV Coaching display, demonstrating its zero-emissions capabilities. But the video has been deleted, Ford.
As is known, the Ford Bronco is currently in the production stage and is ready to be delivered to consumers shortly.
2023 Ford Ranger Raptor
The Ford Ranger Raptor 2023 is essentially a small version of the high-flying, speed-challenging F-150 Raptor. Like its big brother, the off-road-ready Ranger will also feature flared fenders, sturdy tires, extra ground clearance, and a transparent grille.
Although mounted on the same scale frame as the regular Ranger, the Raptor variant will receive a long-travel suspension for jumps and a more powerful motor for faster races in the wilderness.
The Ford will likely only be offered in a single crew-style cabin attached to a five-foot cargo box. The interior is expected to have a separate development and a feature-laden infotainment system. While many details on the upcoming Ranger Raptor are still pending, here’s what we know so far.
It’s anything but official that Ford will finally bring the Raptor Ranger to the United States. We don’t know when this will actually happen or when the company will make an official announcement, but now we’ve seen a photo of the spy test.
Combine that with the photos we’ve seen of the next-gen Ranger disguised prototype, and we believe the Raptor variant will hit showrooms on our shores by the end of 2022.
What Is A Ford Ranger Tremor Package
2021 Ford Ranger Tremor Brings New Off-Road Technology to Old Trucks. … On the Ranger, the crew cab Tremor package includes all-terrain tires, upgraded suspension, electronically locked rear differential, skid plates, fixed metal side steps, Tremor graphics, and six additional power switches for accessories.
What is Ford Ranger Wildtrak
In certain global markets, including Australia, Ford is releasing the Ford Ranger Wildtrak as a Ranger special edition. Based on a four-wheel-drive cabin crew, the Wildtrak is equipped with a 3.2 liter Duratorq diesel engine with manual or automatic transmission.
2023 Ford Ranger Engine
As much has been speculated, CarAdvice understands that the 3.2-liter five-cylinder (147kW / 470Nm) turbo diesel engine – which has served the current Ford Ranger for a decade – will step back by switching to a new model.
The 3.2-liter, five-cylinder turbo diesel engine is meant to end in 2018 when the 2.0-liter bi-turbo four-cylinder diesel arrives with the Ford Ranger Raptor (pictured above) and as an option on the XLT and Wildtrak.
However, Ford is keeping the 3.2-liter, five-cylinder turbo-diesel for longer than planned amid fears of buyer reaction to the switch to the smaller 2.0-liter engine.
Tests by CarAdvice and other media outlets have found that a 2.0 liter (157kW / 500Nm) bi-turbo four-cylinder diesel that matches a 10-speed car is faster and more powerful than a 3.2 liter (147kW / 470Nm) five-cylinder turbo-diesel fits a six-speed – whether empty, pulling or carrying a load.
The 10-speed auto means the 2.0-liter bi-turbo is always in the optimal power band and less stressed.
The big news – there has been widespread speculation – is that the expected arrival to borrow a 3.0-liter turbo diesel V6 Ford F-150 (pictured above) outputs are approaching 185kW and 600Nm.
Apparently, this V6 turbo diesel, which helps seal a partnership agreement with Volkswagen for the next generation Amarok, will be made by Ford but has a unique look (see a separate story here).
Currently, the VW Amarok TDV6 is suitable for peak output and an eight-speed automatic of 190kW and 580Nm in its strongest ass.
CarAdvice understands that both the 2.0-liter bi-turbo four-cylinder diesel and the 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel (pictured below) will be powered by a 10-speed automatic transmission and heavy all-wheel-drive system in the Ford Ranger 2022. It is unclear whether the manuals will be developed as an option for both machines due to relatively low demand.
Given the expected power, the Ford Ranger expects at least some derivatives to come with all-wheel disc brakes from the 2022 series.
Read next: 2023 Ford Super Duty: Next-Gen Super Duty F-250 Preview
The current Us market version of the Ford Ranger – and the current Ford Ranger Raptor – is already getting all-wheel drive brakes, hopefully, things without the 2022 artist for other models of the Ford Ranger.
Ford Ranger’s more affordable models are expected to transition the 2022 artist – including a single-cab tradie – to a stronger and more efficient next-generation of single-turbo 2.2-liter four-cylinder (118kW/385Nm) diesel. Transit Custom 2.0 liter four-cylinder single turbo diesel.
However, it is unclear which of the two outputs of the single-turbo 2.0-liter diesel will be used; Transit Special (pictured below) machine is available in 125kW/390Nm or 136kW/405Nm formats and is compatible with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic.
The Ford Ranger cuff is expected in addition to the diesel engine in 2022 (with 3.0 TDV6 XLT and wild track are likely to have an option on top-end models) there may also be gasoline power options on certain models.
CarAdvice read the high-powered twin-turbo V6 petrol – currently used in the Ford Explorer ST in the US (pictured below) – available under the hood of the next-generation Ranger Raptor (see a separate story here).
Hybrid petrol options are also reportedly being developed for the next-generation Ranger, but it is unclear whether one or both of these petrol engines will be available globally in some markets (including Australia) or only in North America.
The hybrid option will be introduced if the Ranger ute is available, sometimes after its initial launch.
The CarAdvice Ford Ranger 2022 understands that the current model class will be built on the road- leader features and technology, and engineers have been tasked with making the vehicle more in terms of comfort, such as the SUV, the dynamics of silence, and driving.
The good news is we won’t have to wait long before we see the next generation of Ford Ranger.
The moment’s car advice Ford Ranger 2022 will launch in the first half of next year will be a clearer picture of the local showroom arrival date.
For now, the windows are still wide open – late 2021 or early 2022 – as four Ford Ranger plants worldwide (Thailand, South Africa, Argentina, and the US) need to increase the production of new models.
2023 Ford Ranger Manual Transmission
Likely a first look at the SuperCab Ranger’s body style that bridges the gap between the Regular Cab and SuperCrew, the prototype “sounds like a turbo diesel mated to a manual transmission.”
The publication is quoted as believing that we are dealing with a 2.2-liter four-cylinder Duratorq engine that serves as the standard powerplant of the outgoing Ranger Hi-Rider. However, Ford Motor Company has switched to a 2.0-liter EcoBlue single-turbo diesel engine in the European Union.
which means that Ford may be evaluating European and North American variants. Unfortunately, Blue Oval did not want to comment on the sighting. A spokesperson said that “a 2,500-strong design and engineering team has been central to the development of the new Ranger.”
Going forward, this mid-sized pickup will get a fourth body style under the guise of a single cab chassis. This variant may look casual from the factory, but the aftermarket can customize it for a seemingly endless variety of tasks.
Paired with the second-generation Volkswagen Amarok, the new Ranger is expected to come with a 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6 turbo diesel instead of the 3.2-liter, plug-in hybrid Duratorq five-cylinder engine. With 362 horsepower and 502 pound-feet (680 Nm) of torque, the EcoBoost 2, 3 liters, and something a little more powerful for the Raptor.
Similar to its Bronco Warthog sibling, the Ranger Raptor will get a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 or a more powerful 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6 from the Explorer ST.
Expected to be revealed next year for the 2023 model year, the workhorse shares many of its parts with the 2021 Ford Bronco. By the way, the midsize utility vehicle with two and four-door options will enter series production at the Michigan assembly plant in Wayne on May 3.
