The current-generation of the Ford Ranger originally made its first global appearance back in 2011. Since then the Blue Oval has been steadily giving its popular pickup truck minor updates through the years. With the model being 9-years old in 2020, the American brand has opted to give it another facelift yet again instead of an all-new model.
Hints of the new facelift come from Ford Thailand, which has released a 16-second long teaser video showcasing the front of the revised front of the Ford Ranger. While the video itself does not reveal too much, what is evident is that it has a new set of bumpers along with a new grille design that is similar to its US-spec model. The video showcases four different Rangers, the first probably being a middle variant XLT model, the second being a new sportier single cab model, the third being a new sporty 4-door model, and finally the last being an updated Ford Ranger Wildtrak. While the new sporty 4-door has yet to be given an official variant name it could be a special edition version of the pickup truck that could slot under the Ford Ranger Raptor.
Engine specifications could still remain the same for the entire lineup of the popular pickup truck. It could still be released with its powerful 2.0-liter Biturbo diesel motor along with its more conservative 2.2-liter turbo-diesel engine for the lower variants. While there have been transmission issues in the past for the 10-speed automatic, it will likely still be utilized for the facelifted model along with the 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmissions for the lower variants.
Other possibilities for the refreshed Ranger could come in the form of new features that will be lifted from the US-spec model. Other possibilities include slight tweaks to the suspension of the pickup truck along with new off-roading related goodies as well. For now, we will just have to wait for the official reveal of the refreshed Ford Ranger.
