Ford Ranger is one of the most popular mid-size pickup trucks globally. However, this model is not available in the United States for years. However, the 2021 Ford Ranger could make a huge comeback at the North American markets. It is one of the most anticipated models in the pickup truck segment.
We can expect a new design and also numerous changes in every department. U.S. model will depart from the global Ranger and that includes the engine lineup. On the other hand, both models will ride on the same platform. The same architecture underpins the Amarok model. Also, Ranger will arrive in ST and Raptor variants.
No doubt that the new 2021 Ford Ranger will look very unique and stylish. Ranger will arrive with the same shape and dimensions as the global T6 model. It will also ride on the same platform. However, the design language will be changed significantly. That means we can expect a lot of new styling cues and features.
The iconic rectangular grille will be in the offer and it will hold plenty of chrome accents. Grille bars are similar to the bars on the F-150 model. To the sides, Ranger won’t introduce so many innovations. The rear end will also look unique and will offer narrow taillights. Also, expect numerous trim levels.
Interior details are not available at the moment. We are convinced that the interior will be completely new. The 2021 Ford Ranger will introduce a premium cabin with a great level of comfort. Also, we can expect plenty of modern features and systems. Whatsoever, the new model will offer a long list of standard amenities.
New SYNC3 infotainment system will come with the new 8-inch touchscreen. Super Crew cab model comes with a room for five passengers. Front bucket seats are very supportive and comfy. Leather upholstery remains optional, along with the premium B&O audio system. Seating layout will remain, but the layout of the buttons and controls will be brand-new.
Possible Engine Options
It isn’t surprising that the upcoming 2021 Ford Ranger will arrive with a 2.3-liter DOHC engine. Turbocharged unit is delivering 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission is in the offer, along with the optional all-wheel-drive configuration. That means the rear-wheel-drive setup will be standard.
Everything is expected because of the same platform that underpins the Amarok model. The diesel engine will be available as well, probably a 2.0-liter EcoBlue that produces 210 hp and 370 lb-ft of torque. Also, Ford will most likely deliver new engines to the global Ranger T6 model.
2021 Ford Ranger Price and Release Date
The brand-new 2021 Ford Ranger will cost around $27,500. Pricing is not available yet, but higher trim levels will surely cost up to $55,000. New Ranger will make a huge comeback in the United States. According to the latest reports, the mid-size pickup truck will most likely arrive later in 2020. Probably in the fall. Also, Raptor and ST variants will hit the dealerships too.
