2022 Ford Ranger Overview – Details, Specs, Trims

The 2022 Ford Ranger will hit the market as the most advanced Ranger to date. Boasting new engine units with more power and a truckload (pun intended) of tech features, Ford’s pickup aims to gather as large of a market share as possible with its new iterations.

Here’s what’s known so far about the upcoming 2022 Ford Ranger.

Design-wise, it’s expected that the new Ford Ranger will bring along hints from its bigger brother, the F-150. Leaked images of early design stages reveal an extended grille and C-shaped headlights plus integrated daytime running lights.

There seems to be an extended dash to axle ratio, meaning that there’s more space between the front of the cabin and the front of the wheels. This is likely done to accommodate bigger engines, such as the F-150 borrowed V6 unit. In the same manner, a wider track and a slightly longer wheelbase will make the 2022 Ford Ranger more stable and generate more storage room.

The new tow bar design suggest an improvement in terms of clearance angles, allowing the new Ranger to challenge bigger obstacles of rougher terrain. The rear bumper also presents a foot wedge which will make life easier when trying to reach something in the ute tub.

Considerable power boost

In terms of power, Ford will not continue to provide the decade-old 3.2-liter 5-cylinder turbocharged diesel. Instead, the 4-cylinder, 2-liter biturbo diesel unit introduced in 2018 will power the wheels of the 2022 Ford Ranger. The engine is good for 210hp and 368 lb-ft of torque. To deliver the power to the wheels, a 10-speed automatic gearbox will be integrated, allowing for constant optimum power band at all speeds. A 6-speed manual should be also available.

However, the big news state a 3-liter turbocharged diesel V6 engine borrowed from the F-150, which supposedly will deliver 248hp and 443lb-ft of torque.

A petrol V6 is likely to be sold solely on Australian markets. The EcoBoost Nano 2.7-liter twin turbocharged would provide a staggering 309hp to all four wheels, making it the most powerful Ford Ranger to date.

Interior upgrades

While little is known so far regarding how the 2022 Ford Ranger will look and feel on the inside, expectations show the addition of a central airbag. Since the pick-up is Ford’s leading model in terms of safety, reaching 5-star safety rating would require the addition of the central airbag.

Other technology additions may include blind zone monitoring, a 360-degree camera and cross-traffic alert, all complimenting the existing auto emergency braking and radar cruise control systems.

It’s expected that Ford will unveil the 2022 Ranger by mid-2021 with a release to showrooms not too far away from reveal.
