Next-Gen Ranger Product Details Revealed


March 25, 2022

Ford Australia has released feature and model range details for the upcoming Next-Gen Ranger – including power and torque outputs for all engines – but prices are not due to be announced until closer to launch.

As reported late last year, five Ranger variants will be available at launch – with the hardcore Raptor to follow towards the end of the year – offering the option of turbo-diesel V6 power on higher grades, and standard active safety technology.

Prices will not be confirmed until closer to launch, with Ford is understood to still be in negotiations with head office. Given the recent price movements – and price rises – a price hike for the new Ranger is on the cards.

A range of option packs are available, adding various tech, tyre, wheel and towing features. These are detailed in full below.
