Although the Ford Ranger talking about 2019 model, has been quite new in the market of pickup trucks and the fans are still looking forward to its return, a rumor has it that the year 2022 might bring us some news when it comes to this popular off-roader. Its arrival hasn’t been confirmed yet, but the speculations about the new 2022 Ford Ranger have been really loud lately.

Exterior

When it comes to exterior of the 2022 Ford Ranger, the fans probably shouldn’t expect any revolutionary changes here. Instead, this model is going to appear as a mid-size pickup truck of smaller dimensions, but this shouldn’t cause any space issues inside its cabin. Although it belongs to smaller pickups, the Ranger has a great towing capacity and provides some excellent off-road performance. The 2022 Ranger and its exterior design will probably keep being inspired by its larger popular cousin F-150. This would probably be mostly noticed in the front fascia. The truck is also expected to enhance its suspension system and the off-road enthusiasts will be ready to experience a real adventure with this model. A rumor has it that Ford might not offer a regular cab, but its super and crew cab will be available for sure. Also, the new Ranger should be available in three trim levels – XL, XLT and Lariat.

Interior

Little has been known of the interior that the 2022 Ford Ranger will provide, but some changes and improvements will probably be noticed. The base XL trim will probably combine some cloth and vinyl while the higher trim levels would show leather, wood and other high-quality materials. Besides its overall comfort, the company will upgrade its high-tech area as well. The driver will probably get a smaller information display in the instrument cluster and an 8.0-inch touch-screen in the center console. The latest SYNC3 infotainment system will provide features such as USB ports, Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple Car Play and Android Auto. Also, some of the standard and optional advanced safety systems include adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning and pedestrian detection.

Engine

The most possible engine choice found under the hood of the 2022 Ford Ranger includes the 2.3-liter Eco Boost inline-four that delivers the output of 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque in the Ford Mustang. It will be paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission. The other possibility involves a 2.7-liter Eco Boost V6 found in the F-150 truck, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet.
