While the Ranger name has persisted on Fordtrucks in other countries, the last time Ford sold a Ranger in the United States was during the 2011 model year. The all-new Ranger is designed for todays midsize truck buyer, delivering even more utility, capability and technology for those who blend city living with more off-the-grid adventures on weekends..
To give customers a great all-terrain driving experience, Rangers FX4 Off-Road Package features an innovative Terrain Management System similar to the F-150 Raptors.
Stephanie Brinley, a senior analyst with IHS, says as long as consumer confidence remains strong - and it was at a 17-year high in November - there will be a niche market for rugged trucks like the Ranger. Besides a fuel-saving 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine, Ranger will also offer a 10-speed automatic transmission.
There will be two cab configurations, a SuperCab extended cab and a SuperCrew crew cab, and three trim levels, XL, XLT, and Lariat.
Midsize truck fans can now start their dance of joy.
The frame is mostly made out of high-strength steels, and the front and rear bumpers are also steel, so no F-150 advanced aluminum construction, but under the hood resides a version of the Ford turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-four engine, mated to a high-end 10-speed automatic gearbox.
Ford said it expects the Ranger to have best-in-class payload capacity but wouldn't divulge any details on power, fuel economy, dimensions or weight. It includes four distinct drive modes normal; grass, gravel and snow; mud and ruts; and sand. Targeted at the outdoor enthusiast, this new midsize truck displays an athletic look, flawless for off-roading, camping, and cycling. It will also have both 2 and 4 door models.
Running gear will include shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive, a locking electronic differential and Dana axles.
The OEM noted that the Ranger will incorporate a range of driver-assist, passenger convenience, and connectivity technologies.
The infotainment system will feature Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and AmazonAlexa. An available FordPass Connect 4G LTE modem provides Wi-Fi access for up to 10 devices, while the OEM said available AC power outlets on the Ranger will allow for charging of laptops and USB outlets provide more options for passengers to connect. The Trail Control feature can also be purchased and it will act as cruise control system. "And that's before we introduce it in the biggest truck market in the world, which is the U.S.".
