Next-Generation Ford Ranger is revealed
The Next-Generation Ranger has been redesigned from the ground up to help you do more, work smarter and go further than you ever have before. Here’s just a few of the things that make the Next-Generation Ranger the perfect partner for work and adventure.
WHAT’S NEW ON THE OUTSIDE?
The Next-Gen Ford Ranger takes its design cues from Ford’s global truck portfolio with a bold new design, a wider stance, more prominent grille and signature ‘C-clamp’ daytime running lamps with powerful halogen or LED technology. The Ranger’s athletic and powerful exterior design also incorporate a new tailgate with RANGER stamped on it and a choice of halogen or LED taillights that add to the truck’s tougher personality.
BUILT FORD TOUGH
The Next-Generation Ford Ranger has undergone unrelenting global testing from sub-zero to +50° Celsius temperatures to ensure it’s robust, rugged and capable. Its high-strength steel frame and steel body ensure the Ranger’s Built Ford Tough reputation for quality, durability and strength.
ENHANCED OFF-ROAD CAPABILITY
A wider stance and a choice of two different four-wheel-drive systems and selectable drive modes make off-road exploration effortless. The rear dampers are moved outboard, which means customers experience a more consistently comfortable ride no matter if they’re carrying a full pallet, towing a caravan or just taking the family out for a drive.
With a choice of two fuel-efficient 2.0-litre turbo diesels in Single and Bi-Turbo configurations, and a new powerful 3.0-litre turbo diesel V6, there’s an engine to suit your needs.
DUAL RECOVERY HOOKS
Twin attachment points provide flexible recovery options while driving off-road, and the ability to use balance straps during snatch recoveries in deep sand and muddy areas.
CARGO MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Ranger’s cargo management system takes the hassle out of stowing items safely and securely. It gives customers organisation and storage solutions to secure cargo.
TAILGATE WORK SURFACE
Depending on the variant, an available tailgate work surface provides a built-in ruler and cupholders.
LOAD BOX ACCESS STEP
Getting into the tray to load or unload cargo just got easier, thanks to the new, integrated sidestep. Now you don’t have to stand on the rear wheel to reach items in the tray.
Keep going even after the sun sets with zone lighting that allows you to control individual exterior lights on your truck either through the SYNC® 4 screen or from the FordPass™ app on your smartphone.
New clamp pockets are built into the tailgate of every Ranger so you can hold materials down for clean cuts and precision work. Spring-loaded caps cover the pockets when not in use.
BOX TOP AND TAILGATE PROTECTIVE CAPPING
Durable caps protect the tray edges and tailgate’s upper edge from damage from gear and cargo. Need to fit a canopy or crossbars? Simply remove the access caps to reveal Ranger’s structural attachment points.
BEDLINER WITH FUNCTIONAL DIVIDER LOCATORS
Moulded slots in the bedliner allow you to fit dividers to customise the load box, allowing you to store gear and stop it from sliding around.
With accessories to choose from at launch, many of them in collaboration with ARB, personalising your Ranger has never been easier or more comprehensive.
DUAL BATTERY CAPABILITY
With space to install a second battery under the bonnet, you can keep your powered camping and work appliances running for longer.
WHAT’S NEW ON THE INSIDE?
The cabin is completely redesigned with more comfort, technology and functionality along with more premium materials and more storage. The coast-to-coast instrument panel creates a spacious and premium feel to the cabin.
LARGE DIGITAL GAUGE CLUSTER
A new customisable digital instrument panel is available, featuring impressive graphics and animations. It responds to the truck’s selectable drive modes and displays truck data and off-roading information as well as turn-by-turn navigation.
HIGH-RESOLUTION TOUCHSCREEN DISPLAY WITH SYNC® 4
Designed for real-world truck customers, the standard 10.1 or available 12-inch high-resolution portrait-oriented display allows for split screen app or feature viewing.
E-SHIFTER & ELECTRONIC PARKING BRAKE
Elegantly designed and robustly engineered, the short-throw e-shifter and electronic parking brake elevate Ranger’s high-tech interior.
Ranger is built to take on any terrain with up to six available drive modes on 4x4 models – a feature that was previously only offered on Ranger Raptor.
FORD POWER-UP SOFTWARE UPDATES
In the future, seamless over-the-air updates will help ensure your truck stays at the forefront of technology, get preventative maintenance, or improve performance.
REAR SEAT FLEXIBILITY
Double cab fold-flat rear seats give you more functional space in the rear, while under-seat storage and a storage space behind the rear seats helps keep the interior in order.
360-DEGREE CAMERA WITH SPLIT-VIEW DISPLAY
A 360-degree camera gives you a view of what’s in front and what’s behind the vehicle, while a top-down view helps you to park and avoid obstacles near the vehicle.
Large enough to take plus-sized phones, the wireless charging pad not only does away with cables, but it also allows you to use Bluetooth SYNC® phone features while charging.
