2021 Ford Ranger Redesign, V6, Colors, and Specs. Ranger came back to the U.S. market recently, everyone is aware that we are not talking about a completely new model here. The current Ranger is one of the oldest models in the segment, as it was introduced in 2011.
At this point, we know that the new model will come with new engines, both gasoline and oil-burners. We expect that the Australian department will take care of the new model once again.
2021 Ford Ranger Will Get New Engines
Some of the biggest novelties of this redesign are those in terms of engines. The current model comes with just one engine in North America, a 2.3-liter turbo-four, which is good for about 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Given the potential this model has, it definitely deserves something more powerful under the hood.
The first thing that comes to mind is a V6 unit. We are pretty sure it will be a familiar 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6, which is good for about 325 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. With such numbers, we can expect significant improvements in terms of performances, though we have to say that the current model already stands pretty good in this aspect.
The latest reports suggest it would be a new 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6, which can be found in the new F-150. The engine is good for about 250 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, though 2021 Ford Ranger specs could be a little bit different. The current model with a turbo-four gasoline engine is already pretty strong in this aspect, as it can tow 7.500 pounds.
2021 Ford Ranger Platform
Another thing about the 2021 Ford Ranger redesign is the platform. It looks like the current T6 architecture will remain.
Exterior and Interior Design
The current model is quite old, so we presume that the new styling will come heavily inspired by the full-size F-150. When it comes to dimensions, the new model could gain a couple of inches in wheelbase in overall length, but we don’t expect anything significant to be changed.
On the other side, we expect finer materials on the inside. The current model looks okay, but there are rivals that look more opulent and more modern from the inside. That’s why Ford is going to introduce something more attractive, a dashboard with new shapes and higher-quality materials.
Ford Ranger Raptor
Simply, the current model doesn’t make spectacular sales numbers in the U.S. market. It is a pretty good truck, with decent performances, it is still far away from the most popular models in the class.
Expect a lot of inspiration from the F-150 Raptor, particularly in terms of styling. Count on all those off-road upgrades, including locking differentials, skid plates, hill start assist upgraded suspension with new dampers higher ground clearance etc.
2021 Ford Ranger Redesign Release Date and Price
The new model is about to hit the market sometime in the next year, most likely in the second half. When it comes to the 2021 Ford Ranger Raptor price, we expect something like 40-45.000 dollars.
