After months of waiting, yesterday we met the new generation of the Ranger. In their design, the new vertical C-shaped headlights with optional Matrix LED technology. No less interesting is the single-bar grille with the prominent Ford logo, the sculpted hood, and the muscular, aerodynamic bodywork.
The new Ranger avoids the smooth curves of its predecessor. As we move behind, the design is more evolutionary than revolutionary. The Ranger retains a pronounced shoulder line and familiar cabin, while boasting redesigned LED taillights, new wheels and a rear bumper with steps for easy access to the box.
Also noteworthy are 50 mm wider track and wheelbase widths. Ford has not detailed the trim levels available, but we can see the single and double cab models, as well as various finishes. The most complete and eye-catching Wildtrack stands out especially. The brand has also announced that they will be offered close to 600 accessories of fabric.
More technology and robustness inside
The 2022 Ford Ranger presents a high-tech interior. It features digital instrumentation and a SYNC4 infotainment system with vertical screen displays. 10.1 or 12 inch. They do not lack a specific off-road screen for «monitor transmission, steering angle, vehicle pitch and roll angles«.
The pick up also includes a built-in modem to ensure a extensive connectivity. As with other models, many functions can be carried out through the FordPass app. Of course, the whole design of the dashboard and the center console are new, finding higher quality materials, contrasting stitching and a new steering wheel.
Ford has not given many details of equipment, but the wireless charger of the smartphone and smart, expanded storage solutions. The box, for its part, enjoys larger dimensions and a new coating. We also see additional tie down points and a new cargo management system with movable dividers.
