Ford just pulled the sheets on the all-new 2024 Ford Ranger, set to rival the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon in the midsize pickup truck segment. The next-gen Ford Ranger features revised styling, new tech features, and the new Ford Ranger Raptor, a high-performance off-road variant.
The new styling starts with unique front-end treatments depending on the trim level selected, as well Ford’s C-clamp signature headlights.
In terms of practicality, there is an available Integrated Box Side Step, fold-flat rear seats, and expanded width between the wheel wells to accommodate items up to 4-feet wide. The wheelbase and track were both extended by 2 inches for added bed space and stability. Ground clearance, approach angles, and departure angles are all improved compared to the preceding model.
Under the hood, you’ll find a standard 2.3L EcoBoost engine, with output rated at 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. The 2024 Ford Ranger is also offered with the 2.7L EcoBoost V6, the same engine found under the hood of the Ford F-150 and Ford Bronco, with output rated at 315 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. All models are equipped as standard with a 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.
New driver assist technologies for both on-road and off-road are onboard as well, with advanced towing tech including Pro Trailer Backup assist and integrated trailer brake controller with 360-degree camera. The infotainment spec includes a standard 8-inch instrument cluster and available 12.4-inch instrument cluster, as well as a standard 10.1-inch central screen and available 12-inch screen.
Meanwhile, performance enthusiasts can step up to the 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor, which features 2.5-inch Live Valve Internal Bypass shocks, a reinforced frame, 33-inch all-terrain tires mounted on 17-inch wheels, extensive underbody protection, and a twin-turbo 3.0L V6 producing 405 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque.
Orders for the 2024 Ford Ranger open up later this month, with availability late in the summer, and late in the fall for model’s equipped with the 2.7L engine. Pricing starts at $34,160, while the 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor will start at $56,960, including $1,595 for destination and delivery.
