2018 Ford Ranger: US model will offer great engines and sleek design

Some earlier reports suggested that there is the big possibility of returning Ford’s smallest pickup home. Well, these rumors are correct because we got the confirmation from our insider from Blue Oval Company. This is still unofficial, but the compact pickup truck should be ready for introduction in the last quarter of 2017, so we would definitely see the all-new 2018 Ford Ranger.

2018 Ford Ranger: Design and Specs

The overseas model came totally redesigned last year, so the US-spec Ranger pickup isn’t overly hard to imagine. However, the North American model will likely receive a few more details which would provide better characteristics of the model. We expect to see a little bit redesigned exterior bodywork of the 2018 Ranger. According to our source, the compact pickup truck could look more like the new-generation Raptor. The American car manufacturer may also tweak the chassis and suspension, so the vehicle’s body could involve plenty of aluminum parts. This will definitely cut fuel consumption and make the 2018 Ford Ranger very rigid. Inside, the truck would feature sleek styling and plenty of equipment. There should be a wide, deep center console and F-150’s infotainment functions with button access to most features. There will several trim levels, so the range-topping model might sport MyFord Touch screen interface, as well as real wood and fine leather treatments.

2018 Ford Ranger: Engine Options

The US 2018 Ford Ranger will offer several quite interesting engines. The compact truck will have both gasoline and diesel options, so you will be able to choose whatever you want. As for the oil-burner, the carmaker could offer a 3.2-liter I5 Power Stroke turbo diesel engine that will deliver around 200 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque. The unit will be paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. There is also a possibility of seeing the US Ranger with Jaguar Land Rover’s 3.0-liter Lion V6 diesel. This engine delivers 254 hp and 443 lb-ft of twist, and could be matted to Ford’s 10-speed auto gearbox. The gasoline model should have a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that currently produces 310 horsepower.

The manufacturer plans to build the American version of Ranger pickup at Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne. The starting price of the interesting model should be around $20K.

  1. Please send the v6 to Thailand as well.

    • I suggested this some time ago when I heard Land Rover is planning to make there own in line six. It will be great to have the v6tdi in the Ranger and Everest. However traction control will definitely be upgraded to counter wheel spin before it happens and not like on my Wildtrak auto after it looses traction. A bigger fuel tank say 140 l (ARB long ranger)witch fits with no mods will be welcome.

  2. When will the new Cayenne be available to purchase?
