Here's a first look at a pre-production next generation 2023 Ford Ranger XLT equipped with a series of ARB accessories. We can see a new and larger front bumper/brush guard with attached offroad lights, winch and a snorkel attached along the front quarter panel.

Eeek...:confused:
That bumper looks way to chunky... but different strokes for different folks :)
curious of the increased capabilities or fording the snorkel will give the Ranger.

That's no bumper, its a roo bar. It's there for when you inevitably strike a kangaroo on rural roads in Australia.

ARB aren't known for their styling when it comes to bars, they've been the same for a very long time.

Right,. I understand the purpose and I don’t mind them actually. I was just referring to the bumper and brushguard.

To each their own… personally I’m not a fan of the bumper and especially don’t like the bar from the bumper down to and along the rocker. It reminds me of the rigging of a camera vehicle used in making movies. It just looks clumsy to me.

I like it. The approach angle looks really good and I think other 3rd party will have a field day designing bumpers for the new Ranger.

The snorkel won't increase the wading depth, the intake often isn't the limiting factor. Breathers, electrical components etc are all part of the wading depth limit.
