Ford will soon unveil the next-generation Ranger mid-size pickup in Europe on November 24, revealing what the new version will offer when it is introduced to the U.S. soon. While Ford spent a lot of time preparing the global Ranger for its 2019 U.S. debut with the previous generation, we expect fewer delays this time around. The new Ranger will slot in between the new Maverick and F-150 pickups in Ford’s truck lineup — and we may finally be getting a high-performance Ranger Raptor as well.
From spy photos and teasers, we can tell that the new Ranger will have similar proportions to the current model with a grille that appears to be a cross between the Maverick and the F-150. As before, it will be available in both extended and crew cab configurations. Versions seen in various teasers show a safety rack in the back of the truck for mounting accessories such as lights.
We expect the US version of the new Ranger to use the same 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine as the current model. It produces 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. That engine is rated to tow up to 7,500 pounds in the current model and is EPA rated at 23 mpg combined. The Ranger Raptor can use a more powerful turbocharged V-6.
Look for more information on the 2023 Ford Ranger soon, and we’ll have all the details right here when the new model debuts at the end of the month. We’ve reached out to Ford to find out when the US version will debut and will update this story when we learn more.
