Ford recently released a video of the all-new 2024 Ford Ranger and 2024 Ranger Raptor and confirmed that both pickups will be unveiled on May 10th.
The new Ranger is built on an updated version of the frame platform of the current T6 truck. The updated platform, which debuted in the Bronco, has a slightly larger footprint and increased track width and wheelbase.
Given the close ties to the Bronco, it is expected that the American Ranger will be equipped with the same powertrains as this SUV. The Bronco is offered with a 2.3-liter turbocharged V4, a 2.7-liter turbocharged V6, and a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6.
The power of the top version will be about 400 hp. The new Raptor should get improved off-road suspension, matching wheels and tires, and a full-time all-wheel drive system with a two-speed transfer case and differential locks front and rear. The sole transmission for the 2024 Ranger lineup is expected to be a 10-speed automatic.
Production of the new Ranger for North America will take place at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan. The current Ranger and Bronco are produced at this enterprise.
Previously reported that Ford is losing nearly $60,000 on every electric car it sells, with the company releasing one ICE car every 30 seconds.
