2023 Ford Ranger Spy Shots, Release Date, Engine – Recent testing of the new 2023 Ford Ranger was done alongside the Tremor model. Ford is targeting the mid-truck segment from all angles. Spy photographers captured a Ford Ranger prototype in Michigan while it was being tested. The new model is fresh-looking, and unfortunately, it’s wearing heavy camo. Also, we noticed some changes to the front fascia. Nevertheless, the Ranger is still the toughest truck and will ride on the T6 platform upgraded like the Bronco.
2023 Ford Ranger Redesign
Exterior And Interior Design
The 2023 Ford Ranger spy is now less obscured than ever before. It gives us a good view of the front end. The new Ranger will follow in the footsteps of the F-150 first. The grille is almost identical and flanked by LED daytime running lights and vertical headlights.
The spy shots also reveal that the truck will feature a similar sweeper-style rear suspension to the one used by the company on the F-150 Raptor. As a result, we expect the Ranger’s next generation to be more off-road. The prototype has a similarly rugged design and is fitted with new 255/65 R18 Goodyear Wrangler Territories tires.
The cabin section of the 2023 Ford Ranger will likely not change. The 5-seater Ranger SuperCrew is the best choice. This model has more rear legroom and rear doors that allow for easy entry and exit.
New midsize pickup trucks are available in XL, XLT, and Lariat trims. We recommend upgrading from the base LX trim level to an optional STX package which adds nicer materials to the cabin. In addition, the model comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment screen and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone connectivity.
2023 Ford Ranger Engine
Ford did not reveal details about the engine for the 2023 Ford Ranger. However, we expect that both models will share some engine options, given the fact that the new model will be riding on the T6 platform, like the Bronco.
Many believe the EcoBoost four-cylinder will power the next Ranger, producing around 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. We also expect a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 to produce 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. Ranger Raptor, a variant of the Warthog’s 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6 that produces up to 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque, is also developing.
2023 Ford Ranger Release Date And Price
Ford previously stated that the new-generation 2023 Ranger would debut in early next year. However, the upcoming model has been spotted being tested alongside the Ranger Tremor. The models look similar side-by-side, but the camouflaged prototype has more muscular bodywork.
We assume that the cost of the new truck will be slightly more than it was before. The entry-level model is priced at $26,015, but Ranger Lariat 4x4s can cost more than $46,000.
