2023 Ford Ranger Buyer’s Guide

2023 Ford Ranger – Ford’s mid-sized Ranger pickup truck is set to be updated be redesigned for the 2023 model year. It will sport a more striking front design which is inspired by the bigger F-150. Although Ford has stated that it will launch its new Ranger with turbodiesel V-6 engines in certain markets, we’re expecting that the American version to be driven by the identical Turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine like the one in the current model equipped with rear-wheel drive. The four-wheel-drive option is available and we may consider a hybrid powertrain option to will also be available, but we’re most thrilled about the possibility of a high-performance Raptor version. Two distinct styles of the body are planned available: A four-door crew cab, and an extended cab version with two half-doors in the rear. The cabin gets a similar redesign, with a huge and vertically-oriented infotainment system that is similar to that used inside Edge.

Without further information about the Ranger’s price or its standard or optional features, we’re unable to provide a recommendation as to which one offers the greatest value. However, we’d recommend the larger crew cab version for those who are planning to use the rear seat to carry passengers. If more details become available we’ll update this post with additional details.

Engine Specs

Although Ford might be able to pull a switcheroo, however, we believe that it’s likely that the new Ranger will have an identical turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder that was in the old model. We’ve found that this engine has enough power to propel the mid-sized truck, and we wouldn’t expect that to be altered by this new version. Ford claims it will provide a turbodiesel V-6 engine in other markets, but we don’t think it will find it across to North America. A range of transmissions are offered, including a six-speed manual and a 10-speed automated however we believe Ford will stick to the 10-speed transmission as standard in Rangers within the U.S.

Towing and Payload Capacity

The current model has the capability of towing 7500 pounds, placing it at the top of the range for mid-sized pickups. We anticipate that the new model to have the same capabilities.

Interior

Inside, the cabin has a contemporary look featuring a digital gauge display as well as a trim on the dashboard that is textured, and honey-comb-patterned air vents. A majority of the vehicle’s buttons and controls are digitally digitized and now integrated into the information system. Ford has integrated a variety of storage options inside the interior of the new Ranger that include a hidden glovebox that is located in the dashboard. large door pocket cubbies as well as storage under the rear seat.

Infotainment and Connectivity

A huge 10.1-inch infotainment screen is common across the Ranger lineup through 2023. Those who have an eye on technology can upgrade to a bigger horizontally-oriented 12.1-inch screen. Ford’s most recent Sync 4 interface runs on both platforms and allows access to the ranger’s many options, including activating the new zone-lighting function that will turn on lights that are located on the exterior of the truck to help light an area for work or to provide lighting to help set up camp in the darkness. Apple CarPlay along with Android Auto will likely be included, and we’re expecting additional features like in-dash navigation and the B&O Play stereo system, and SiriusXM satellite radio to be included.
