The stories about Ford Bronco and Ranger to come will not stop. And they should not! We want to know more and more. If we could get everything on the next 2019 Ford Ranger or Bronco again, that would be an amazing thing. Knowing all this at this stage is not realistic, but today we have something new, both for you and for us. The new Ranger was spied here in the United States completely camouflaged.
Being fully covered test mule of the new Ranger hides one of two things. The first thing would be a brand new design for this mid-sized pickup that would be contrary to earlier claims that it will most likely resemble the European model. The option that is closer to the truth is that the camo hides the body completely different, something that will make US Ranger more distinguishable from the global version. American customers are tough so by doing that Ford could make them happy. The solution between the two is that 2019 Ranger gets a bit of Euro style and a bit of the US one, with a later borrowed from the current Ford F-150. Anyway, it’s too early to claim anything, so we’ll just wait for him to throw away more camo.
Under the skin, you should not expect anything stronger than a V-6 mill. Across the Ranger Ocean is available with a variety of diesel powertrains, but there are only two options that could enter the US market. The first is a 3.0-liter Lion unit with 254 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque that will be available on 2018 F-150 (making it the first F-150 diesel ever). You might notice that it has too much power for a mid-size pickup, but the output number could be decreased to facilitate the new Ranger and also, Ford has to keep their model F-150 headlight on top in terms of Power figures.
The two option would be a 3.2-liter five-line diesel that is doing well on Ford Transit van in America. It produces 185 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. These numbers fit in well with the Ranger, and we know because it is already used by this truck throughout the world. With regard to transmission, we can not say much at this time, but GM’s ten-speed automatic could be one of the options.
Ford Ranger 2018/2019: Serious speculation about Ford Ranger coming back to the US market began in October 2016. Now in early 2017 Ford NAIAS has officially confirmed what has been rumored for so long. Ford Ranger 2019 is real! It will be modeled on the European version of the medium-sized Ford truck. Not only will this Ranger be back on the American shores, it will also be built in the United States. The exact location is the assembly of the Michigan of Ford. The return of this medium-sized truck does not come as a real surprise because it has been rumored for several months.
Another thing is that Ford did not have a medium sized pickup in its range and because of this Ranger was in high demand. Asked about the possibility of internal competition between Ford Ranger 2019 and 2018 Ford F-150 Ford (many believe that the introduction of a new medium-sized truck will decrease F-150 sales) Ford officials said they Feel better at the competition themselves than having Rival drop sales to them. Despite the fact that the base for the Ranger built in the US will be European truck models will differ with regards to the front style, engine options offered and general features. With Ranger Ford plans to bring back, as long rumore, Bronco. The news suggests that the latter will use the same T6 platform as Ranger. These two models are the first two of five utility vehicles that Ford claims to release by 2020.
In North America, the Ford Ranger (Wiki) was last manufactured in 2011 when the truck was abandoned. The main factors that drive Ford to do this were the problems with finances and the fear that the truck would steal too many F-150 customers. Over five years since he was interrupted and after seeing how well the Colorado and Canyon sell, Ford finally realized that the Ranger is needed in the US market too. While they have nothing published official, rumors suggest that the truck could be released as the 2018 Ford Ranger. This would be right to compete with the Chevy Colorado update. We are already talking about the rumors of Ford Ranger 2017!
NEW SPECS FORD RANGER
So far we are pretty sure that the American model of the 2018 Ranger will be based on the same platform as the current international truck. This means that its chassis will not be made entirely of high strength steel, but it will still be stiff enough compared to Colorado. On top of that, the chassis would be roughly the same size as that of the F-150 base which was a problem before. However, after seeing that Colorado does not matter on Silverado sales, Ford is now confident about the release of their medium-sized truck.
2018 FORD RANGER DIFFUSION DATE & PRICE
It is expected to reach retail stores by the end of 2018 or early 2019. The base price is expected to be less than $ 25,000 and just as with competition, a cabin crew should be the Only choice for beginners.
WHAT IS ON THE DESIGN? NEW @ FORD RANGER 2018?
Even though the rumor 2018 Ford Ranger should share essentially the same platform as the international version, the two are going to be nothing like it. The American model will certainly receive a different racing equipment. This should carry a more flexible suspension system with more travel that will make it more comfortable. On top of that, the design will be brand new. In fact, the rumors say that the US Ranger will look much more like the Edge or Explorer rather than the F-150. The front panel will be more aggressive and aerodynamic while the cabin will be similar to that of the European model. The bed should also be the same, but some special editions could be released at a later date.
Just as with the Transit which received a revised interior when it hit the US shores, the new Ranger should be brand new as well. The dashboard, the level of equipment and even the materials will all be different. We hope that Ford will change them for the better and the looks of it, this could just be true.
CHOICE OF RUMOR ENGINE. RANGER DIESEL? IN US?
As the rumors suggest, the future Ford Ranger 2018 should be equipped with several new engines. The basic model should be equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 gasoline engine. This EcoBoost unit should offer approximately 250 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque, better than virtually any of its direct competitors. For those looking more, it seems that Ford could also install a larger suctioned naturally 3.7 V6. This should easily be able to provide more than 330 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque, even more than any of its rivals. Even if only a rumor at this point, the most interesting engine will certainly be the 3.2L I-5 turbo diesel. This has already proven its reliability and with over 200 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, it should be more than capable of towing up to 7000 pounds or more.
Unlike the European model, this version of the truck should be launched with an automatic transmission. Currently, Ford’s 10-speed transmission seems to be the most likely unit to install.
