EXTERIOR

The Ford Ranger has been redesigned from the ground up on this all-new generation model, most notably on the bold front-end styling, characterised by the signature “C-Clamp” headlights design and massive hexagonal grille, both of which taking inspiration from the F-150.

The sides of the pick-up get a mild redesign with new character lines and reworked wheel arches, while at the back, the tailgate also sees a new debossed ‘Ranger’ word mark, alongside the new vertical taillights with intricately-designed LED light signatures.

In terms of equipment, the all-new Ford Ranger comes with the following:

  • XL
    • Halogen headlamps
    • 16-inch wheels, 255/70 R16
    • Two 240V, 400 watt power sockets in truck bed
  • XLT
    • LED reflector headlamps
    • LED daytime-running lights
    • 17-inch wheels, 255/70 R17
  • XLT Plus (adds)
    • Plastic-moulded bed liner
  • WildTrak (adds)
    • Matrix LED projector headlights
    • Integrated side steps behind rear wheels
    • 18-inch wheels, 255/65 R18

PERFORMANCE

The all-new Ford Ranger will be offered in two different powertrain options, both powered by the same 2.0-litre inline-four diesel engines, but in single- or bi-turbo configurations.

  • Ford Ranger XL, XLT
    • Engine: 2.0-litre single-turbocharged inline-four, diesel
    • Transmission: New six-speed manual, or six-speed automatic gearbox
    • Max horsepower: 170 hp @ 3,500 rpm
    • Max torque: 405 Nm @ 1,750 – 2,500 rpm
  • Ford Ranger XLT Plus, WildTrak
    • Engine: 2.0-litre bi-turbocharged inline-four, diesel
    • Transmission: 10-speed automatic gearbox, with e-Locking Rear Differential
    • Max horsepower: 210 hp @ 3,750 rpm
    • Max torque: 500 Nm @ 1,750 – 2,000 rpm

Ford says that both engines, alongside their gearboxes, have been put through extensive tests to ensure their reliability. The new six-speed manual transmission on the single-turbo variants is also said to have been in development for four years across four continents, featuring a new gear set for smoother gearshifts.

Other improvements come in the form of a strengthened chassis, alongside a 50 mm increase in both the wheelbase and track width to enhance the truck’s comfort and stability, both on-road and off-road. The dampers for the rear suspensions have also been moved outboard of the frame rails and springs to offer a more controlled ride, whether the vehicle is laden or not.

The drive mode selector, which was previously exclusive to the Raptor, has also now moved down the product line-up to offer up to six drive modes (depending on variant) across the board. These modes adjust various settings ranging from gearshift to throttle response, traction and stability control, as well as ABS and more.

INTERIOR

The big changes continue inside, featuring a new “coast-to-coast” dashboard architecture headlined by the massive vertically-oriented central display in the centre. Ford says that the user interface of the dashboard has now been simplified, with many of the features being moved into touchscreen operation.

Aside from the massive central screen, the seven-inch digital instrument cluster is also standard across all variants, significantly lifting the overall modern feel of the cabin. Equipment varies according to variants, with the highlights being:

  • 8-inch digital instrument cluster
  • Electronic dual-zone climate control
  • Fabric seats (leather upholstery on WildTrak)
  • Power adjustable front seats (WildTrak)
  • 12-inch vertical central infotainment display with Sync 4A operating system (WildTrak, 10.1-inch on other variants)
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Electronic parking brake (WildTrak)
  • Qi wireless charging pad (XLT and higher variants)
  • 360-degree surround view monitor (WildTrak)
