As a global vehicle, Ford’s midsize pickup was well into its life cycle when it arrived in North America for the 2019 model year. That means instead of a makeover, there’s pretty much a full-on redesign coming in 2022 for the 2023 model year. The Ranger will get a modified chassis that’s also used for the Ford Bronco utility vehicle, which makes for a slightly larger footprint. This likely means the Ranger will offer the current turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine and the Bronco’s optional twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6. Also expected is an available plug-in hybrid model plus a Ranger Raptor off-roader with a 400-horsepower twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6. The Ranger’s bodywork will somewhat reflect the appearance of the larger F-150.
The redesigned Ranger pickup is slightly larger than the current model and is expected to use the same base 2.3-liter four-cylinder. It’s likely that there will be an optional twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6.
