We reckon that no big changes will be applied on the 2018 Ford Ranger. That means it could actually use 2.5-l 5-cylinder drivetrain. Other possibility is some from the EcoBoost units, maybe 3.5-l utilised by F-150. Then, new Ranger are able to use diesel engine, a 2.2-l turbo four-cylinder. With slightly less power and torque above 250 lb-ft, or maybe 300. Some experts predict 3.2-l 5-cylinder in turbo-diesel form with massive torque level and excellent off-road and towing skills. New model should use 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox, while new 10-speed transmission isn’t mentioned of these rumors. Rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive system will likely be offered in other performance packages.
2018 Ford Ranger redesign
Styling on the possible 2018 Ford Ranger may very well be predictable. This vehicle uses most design solutions from the predecessor, while adding some modern features from existing Ford trucks. Fog lights and headlamps will probably be new, therefore we are sure that new grille will be designed, though similar lines. Inside, dashboard may very well be borrowed from siblings, with 8-inch display dominating it on higher trims. Upholstery is changed, specifically for premium trucks. Infotainment system along with other technology features will likely be upgraded, since there was a while even as we didn’t have this vehicle available in the market. As for other vehicles from same company, safety will probably be at highest level.
