Regarding the larger screens, they look much better than what I originally imagined. I thought they would just slap the 15.5 screen on the dash to keep it minimalistic, but I'm glad that there is still physical buttons with the vertical display. The new Ranger looks very aggressive, and I sure...
I am super, super excited to see what this new Ranger will look like!!! Hopefully, the US-spec Ranger will be similar to what has been teased so far. I'm hoping we see the 2.7L EcoBoost available on the standard Ranger and the 3.0L EcoBoost for the Raptor.
Two more questions:
1- I'm a little...
I am really starting to like how this new Ranger is turning out in terms of design. Seems to be a nice blend of F-150 and Maverick cues, but at least that means it will look more cohesive with the rest of Ford's truck lineup and it won't look out of place.
I noticed that about 0.22 minutes into the video we get a glimpse of the Ranger's interior and a bit of the center touchscreen. From what I'm seeing, it doesn't seem to have that floating design that many other cars nowadays are using. Starting to look great and can't wait to see more!
Ford Authority has an article showcasing another 2023 Ranger prototype, this time with the peculiar vinyl camo wrapping. Judging by the exhaust routing, this is likely an emissions-testing prototype. Keen eyes will also notice that it will adopt the same antenna design as the F-150. FA has a...
No, I'm talking about the screen being positioned on top of everything else like how most other SUVs and crossovers do. If the screen is positioned like how you suggest, maybe I won't mind it. It just depends on how they position it is all.
Some of the more recent reports suggest that the Ranger Raptor will use a 2.7 L EcoBoost V-6 instead, but I hope that Ford will do a 3.0 instead like you suggest. I mean, it's going to be the same platform as the Bronco, so it should work.
Regards to you too, Phil. If I'm seeing the same thing that you are, then I'm guessing that that's probably not a leaf spring. It's likely what is holding together that weird bristle-like camouflage that's covering up the suspension.
I agree with you partially on this. It just depends on the type of car that you put the tablet-style screen in and how well you do it. The Escape's screen setup isn't bad, but the ones on the Explorer just look tacky (that and the weird fake exhaust pipes). This tablet screen design trend should...
