Ford Ranger pickup, technical characteristics
Under the new bodywork the new Ford Ranger features an updated chassis. The step, compared to the previous generation, is longer than 50 mm while the roadway is wider than 50 mm compared to the previous Ranger.
The front structure is more spacious to accommodate the new 3.0-liter V6 engine. It also allows for more airflow to the radiator, which helps keep operating temperatures low when towing or carrying heavy loads.
The next generation Ranger is powered by diesel engines four-cylinder in-line Single-Turbo (in two power steps) And Bi-Turbo from 2.0 liters. The thrusters are associated with gearboxes manuals or automatic, with by-wire control.
The engineers moved the front wheels forward by 50 mm, for a better angle of attack and outboard, for better off-road performance. They also moved the rear suspension shock absorbers out of the frame rails.
New Ford Ranger infotainment SYNC4
In the cockpit of the new Ford Ranger comes the SYNC4 infotainment system, which debuted on the electric Mustang Mach-E. The SYNC4 features a 10.1 in or 12 inches in the center console.

At the push of a single button, drivers can access Ranger’s dedicated screen for all off-road and driving modes, where they can monitor the transmission, steering angle, lean and roll angles of the vehicle and other controls.
The screen is also connected to a 360 degree camera, very useful in parking maneuvers. The design team also created smart storage and useful features for owners.
There aren’t just places to store your phone or charge it in wireless mode (if compatible), 8 but there is also a large center console basket for storing things.
Ford Ranger body load capacity
The new Ford Ranger is characterized by a large load capacity. For example the door pockets are designed to carry more, the large dashboard hides a glove compartment top and there are storage compartments under and behind the rear seats.
For intelligent load management in the pick-up bed, the new Ranger features a load management system designed with dividers, to hold items of various sizes, such as lumber or toolboxes.
They can also be created smaller compartments for storing items, which would otherwise have to go into the cabin, using a system of ultra-resistant spring-loaded cleats that clip onto bolted tracks on each side of the body.
The tailgate can also act as a mobile workbench with integrated ruler and clamp pockets for measuring, grasping and cutting building materials.
