Ford Motor Company feels pressure in the mid-size truck market. General Motors’ redesigned Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, and the upcoming Tacoma are both excellent pickups. Ford Ranger will be facing stiff competition from the fourth generation Taco for 2024, the US market leader for mid-size cars.
2024 Ford Ranger Review
A rumor that circulates online claims that the order banks for the 2024 Ford Ranger will open on 26 May 2023. This is a fascinating rumor, given that Ford Motor Company did not disclose any information regarding the Ranger’s American version. The brand-new midsize Ford pickup truck will feature several updates, and it is expected to take inspiration from the global Ford Ranger that was revealed last year.
Ford has completely redesigned the mid-sized Ranger pickup truck for the 2024 model, giving it a more aggressive front-end style that was inspired by the larger F-150. Ford sells its Ranger truck in certain foreign markets using a turbo diesel engine. The American model, however, uses the same turbocharged four-cylinder 2.3-liter engine that is currently in the truck. This will be the case again in 2024. The lineup was expanded this year with a powerful twin-turbo V-6 gasoline engine. Both engines are available in rear- or 4-wheel drive.
Interior changes have been made, including a large infotainment screen that is vertically oriented. This is similar to what is available on the higher-end Edge SUVs. At this point, things become murky. The order bank is revealed through a Ford Fleet Distribution news bulletin, and also a Range 6G forum post. Originally, the post stated that order banks will open on April 17th, 2023. However, this has now been changed to May 23rd, 2023. The Ford Ranger 2023 consumer order bank will close on April 27, 2023. Commercial businesses have until March 24, 2023, to place orders.
2024 Ford Ranger Revealed
Several spy photos of the new Ford Ranger 2024 as well as its international model have been captured. The spy photos show the majority of the changes that will bring it up to par with other Fords. However, there are still some unknowns such as the engine, trims, and price. The 2024 Ford Ranger is expected to only come in one trim level, XL. Rumors suggest that a Ford Ranger Raptor model will be available, as well as a plug-in hybrid or electric truck.
