Exploring the New Ford Ranger

Classic pickup gets a serious redesign

The 2024 model year sees a complete redesign of Ford’s mid-size Ranger pickup, drawing inspiration from the larger F-150 for its more assertive front-end styling. While the Ranger is available with a turbodiesel V-6 in certain international markets, the American version maintains the reliable turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine from the current model, with the addition of a more potent twin-turbo gasoline-fired V-6 option. Both engine variants offer rear- or four-wheel drive configurations.

In contrast to last year’s Ranger, which came in two body styles, the 2024 model is exclusively offered as a crew cab with four full-size doors. The interior has undergone significant changes, featuring a large, vertically oriented infotainment system akin to higher-end Edge SUV models.

Upon its release, the 2024 Ranger faces competition from the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Toyota Tacoma, all of which have undergone recent redesigns. Pricing ranges from $34,265 to $45,225 depending on trim and optional features.

The mid-range XLT trim is recommended for its enhanced appearance and desirable amenities, including LED exterior lighting, 17-inch aluminum wheels, and Ford’s Co-Pilot360 suite. Optional packages such as the Technology Package add advanced features like adaptive cruise control and a 360-degree camera system.

Performance-wise, the Ranger maintains its capability with the turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine producing 270 horsepower, while higher trims offer a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6 with 315 horsepower. Both engines are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and can be equipped with rear- or four-wheel drive.

The Ranger’s towing capacity is rated at up to 7,500 pounds, although the truck’s maximum payload rating drops slightly with the four-wheel drive system. Fuel economy varies depending on the engine and drive configuration.

Inside, the cabin boasts a modern aesthetic, with available digital gauge displays and advanced infotainment options. Ford has incorporated numerous interior storage solutions, including hidden compartments and larger door pocket cubbies.

Standard safety features include forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking, with optional upgrades such as blind-spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control.

Ford offers competitive warranty coverage for the Ranger, with a limited warranty covering three years or 36,000 miles and a powertrain warranty covering five years or 60,000 miles. Complimentary scheduled maintenance is not included.
