And full stop/go adaptive cruise at a minimum but more likely some sort of autonomous driving system. I personally think it’s quite likely this truck will be designed for an electric Powertrain too at some point. Will have to see what Rivian, Tesla, Bollinger, Atlas etc demonstrate over the next few years but the future is certainly going to have an electric option. Perhaps with electric motors in each wheel. Perhaps with a hybridized system like Rams E-torque but even that will be antiquated by 2022.And a all aluminum body
It’s coming. Engineers are already working on it.I think it will depend on how the Ranger sells whether a new generation comes that early.
The current Ranger is a nice truck and a great alternative to midsize competitors that are currently out. Some folks will be happy to purchase a platform that other than the power train has been proven globally. The Ranger is due for a redesign and will roll out after the Bronco. There was no real reason to hold off bringing the global Ranger here. Looks like ford will sell 500k before the new platform rolls out and Who knows production could be delayed another year if the Bronco has issues.So what Ford is saying, is that we should hold out for 2021 since the current platform will be abandoned in 2 years, right?
We all should have anticipated this in some way. The current Ranger we have is dated as it is, and I expected the next gen to come within just a few years.So what Ford is saying, is that we should hold out for 2021 since the current platform will be abandoned in 2 years, right?
I'm glad somebody made this graphic. Another thing to mention is the logo behind the cover on the grille is totally an oval. It's rounded just like one. Zoom in closely!The Ford styling is pretty apparent in the render/concept... with the grill protruding into the headlights, and the fender vent/badge. treatment similar to the Super Duty.
