The next-generation Ford Ranger will enter the North American market as a 2024 model. Its production will roughly begin next May.
The new-generation Ford Ranger made its global debut in November 2021. Its launch in the U.S. market is a resolved issue, but potential buyers are interested in when this will happen.
The 2023 Ranger is the final year for the current generation: Ford will produce it till April 2023. Afterward, starting from May, the next-gen 2024 vehicle should begin rolling off the assembly line at Ford’s plant in Michigan, according to Ford Authority.
The new-gen model will supposedly remain in manufacture for 8 years. The all-new 2024 Ford Ranger also introduces its hotter variant – the Ranger Raptor.
The North American Ranger will differ from the global model. In particular, a SuperCab variant offered for other markets will be unlikely available in America, but a SuperCrew cab with 4 full-size doors will be.
U.S.-Spec Ford Ranger Expected Highlights
- A digital instrument cluster with a fully customizable 8.0-inch display
- A standard 10.1-inch or an optional 12-inch infotainment screen
- turbocharged EcoBoost engines – a 2.3L I-4 with 270 hp and 310 lb-ft, and a 3.0L V6 with around 400 hp and 400 lb-ft
- A 10-speed automatic gearbox
- A wider bed with plenty of storage and organizational solutions, like a built-in ruler, clamp pockets, or 360-degree load and zone lighting
Due to the strong competition in the segment, the Ford Ranger is a harder sell, despite the fact it is a nice mix of everyday comfort and workhorse capability.
The Ford pickup is always a fine choice, but not a top one. The Honda Ridgeline is more upscale, the Ford Maverick is a cheaper, more fuel-efficient pick. The all-new Chevy Colorado has just debuted to challenge the Ranger.
Let’s see how North America will meet the 2024 Ranger. We do not expect its history in that market to be easy.
