2023 FORD RANGER 3.0L DIESEL – The new Ford Ranger has a lot of things to be excited about. The Ford Ranger Raptor is now available in North America. Depending on where you live, there will be two powertrain options. Ford has been very secretive about the powertrains that will be available for their diesel engines, at least until now. The most powerful diesel engine will be able to produce 247 horsepower (184 kilowatts) as well as 442 lbft (600 Newton-meters) of torque. Some V8 gas engines have less twisting power.

The new Ford turbodiesel is equipped with a start/stop system. This feature is also available for Ranger Raptors’ twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 gasoline engines. It’s part of the Bronco Raptor.

You can fit a smaller 2.0-liter diesel engine into the new Ranger. This will vary depending on where you live. It produces 168 horsepower (125kW) and 300 lbft (405Nm) of torque. The engine can be further enhanced by adding a turbo to increase its power output to 207 horsepower (157 kW) or 370 lbft (500 Nm). The next-generation Ranger can carry a maximum payload of 2,925 pounds (1.327 kg) depending on which engine it uses. The maximum towing capacity of the next-gen Ranger could reach 7,716 lbs (3.500 kg), which can easily transport bulky items.
