2021 Ford Ranger prepares for the market but still not finished and finalized for the next season. For us, the most important will be how the manufacturer will change the engine and what to expect when the suspension is about.
- The model will have new engines in offer.
- There should be changes in design and platform.
- The design of the model has not been changed for a long time.
- The price is not known yet.
As manufacturer’s engineers say, 2021 Ford Ranger will surely come upgraded and changed for the next year. It is for sure that they will change the suspension and shape of the front and rear bumper. The reason is apparent. The models from this range have become the same in design.
So the manufacturer must do as much he can to make an expected distinction. They have already tested a new platform and suspension, so it is for sure that we could see changes. When it comes to design, we were not able to see the final version since they have not shown it, but let say that they will make significant changes in design as well.
It is hard to say how the cabin in 2021 Ford Ranger will look like when the first model we were able to see was under camouflage. The cottage is not finished yet, so we cannot say much about changes inside. Most likely, they will upgrade the technology and include new devices in their production. The design could not be significantly changed this time.
2021 Ford Ranger Engine
The most crucial change in 2021 Ford Ranger will be the engine that the manufacturer could use. Since the current model uses two powerful and robust engines, 3.2-liter five-cylinder and 2.0-liter four-cylinder that have been proven and loved by the buyers, it is hard to say if they will retain the same models in a new car.
However, it is for sure that the manufacturer has planned to offer entirely new V6 engines in the next generation, so maybe those two will not have a place in the new model again.
When it comes to the new engines, the manufacturer has invested a lot in the new “Nano” EcoBoost engine and tested it a couple of times in Australia. It should be both 3.0-liter turbo Power Stroke diesel and 2.7-liter twin-turbo mentioned “Nano” EcoBoost one.
The EcoBoost model, however, is not entirely new for this manufacturer. They have already tested in 2018 and included in F-150 Raptor in its 3.5-liter model. Knowing that current Ford F-150 uses a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with approximately 230 horsepower, we expect the same technology in new models, including Ranger, too.
However, we hope that for Australia market will be offered something similar (if not the same) 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine, closer to the model released in 1994. This model is not entirely new since According to some predictions, the new model could increase the speed of 60 mph for only 5 seconds.
As if those predictions do not confuse enough, newspapers have said that testing mule they have spotted had a petrol engine under the hood, according to the fuel they tanked on the gas station. In that case, maybe we should expect a petrol model, too.
It could be a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost model that Raptor currently uses. Time will say if they have made two versions of the model, or just teased the newspapers and fans with confusing information.
2021 Ford Ranger Release Date and Price
It is hard to predict the price of 2021 Ford Ranger but is it expected that it would be in the same price range. The final releasing date is later next year.
