What Would the 2023 Ford Ranger Look like?

What Would the 2023 Ford Ranger Look like? – When the long-serving Ford Ranger for the North American market went out of production in 2011, it was possible to look longingly toward Australia, where the Aussies launched a new, modernized Ranger that would be marketed in several countries across the world.

Fast forward to 2019, and Ford was finally feeling the pain of the old Ranger’s demise in America—the midsize class was booming, Chevrolet and GMC were resurrecting the Colorado and Canyon, Nissan was selling old Frontiers without doing anything to keep them fresh, & Toyota’s venerable Tacoma was mop the floor the sales floor with them all.

Ford finally presented us with a “new” midsize Ranger pickup vehicle for 2019.
The problem was that what America got was essentially an eight-year-old Australian farm vehicle adapted for the American market.

2023 Ford Ranger

The new global 2023 Ford Ranger—the 5th generation of the midsize pickup—is designed with the American market in mind from the start, with fresh styling, a more refined ride, and an enhanced interior.

Redesign

The new 2023 Ranger, designed and engineered in Australia, is a significant change from the previous-generation truck. The last Ranger’s curved, almost carlike lines are no longer present.

Instead, the midsize pickup adopts a blockier design that, from particular perspectives, resembles a plus-size Ford Maverick and, from others, a baby Ford F-150. In other words, it’s back to looking like a truck.

Like the Ranger it succeeds, the new midsize truck looks to come in two body styles: an extended-cab/long-bed combination and a four-door crew-cab/short-bed configuration. We say “appears” because Ford hasn’t revealed any details about the North American market.

Ford isn’t saying anything at all, excluding details like bed length, payload and towing capacities, and even power outputs. Expect a long, arduous information rollout—a 6-foot bed for extended-cab vehicles and a 5-foot bed for crew-cab cars is also a likely prediction.

Price

The price of the 2023 Ranger is yet to be announced by Ford. The 2023 Ranger will, however, cost significantly more than the 2022 Ranger due to the makeover and enhancements. The 2022 Ranger has a initial price of $25,285 MSRP for Super Cab variants and $27,685 MSRP for SuperCrew models.

Engine

While Ford could change its mind, we believe the new Ranger will have the same turbocharged 2.3-liter 4-cylinder engine as the current type. This engine has always provided enough power to move the midsize truck around in our experience, and we don’t expect it to change with the new vehicle.
Ford says a turbodiesel V-6 will be available in other areas.

Still, we don’t believe it will be available in North America.
Other transmission options include a six-speed manual and a 10-speed automatic. Still, we believe Ford will stay with the 10-speed automatic standard on Rangers in the United States.

Interior

The Ranger’s cabin gets a modern makeover with an available digital meter display, embossed dashboard trim, and honey-comb-shaped air vents. The infotainment system now includes most of the truck’s different controls and buttons, which have been digitized.

The new Ranger’s interior design has many internal storage solutions, including a hidden higher glovebox in the dashboard, more extensive door pocket cubbies, plus storage under the truck’s rear seat.

Exterior

The revised Ford Ranger 2023 appears to be a larger version of Ford’s tiny pickup truck, the Maverick. It has the Maverick’s robust wheel arches and C-shaped LED headlamps but adds a side step behind the wheel arches.

In addition, the revamped 2023 Ranger is slightly larger than the 2022 Ranger, with a 2-inch increase in both the wheelbase & track width.
The Ranger’s ride quality should improve due to this size increase.

Capacity of Towing

The current model can tow up to 7500 pounds, putting it towards the top of its class among midsize pickup trucks. We anticipate that the next model will be capable in the same way.

Release Date

The 2023 Ford Ranger most likely be released in the summertime of 2022. The 2023 Ford Ranger will be sold at dealerships around the United States.

Ford will ship the next-generation Ranger earlier in international markets as a 2022 Ranger. Ford’s manufacturing factories in South Africa and Thailand will begin producing the new Ranger soon.
