Its been very quite with any new info on the 6G Ranger. I guess Ford is occupied with the roll out of the Bronco in the Summer of 2021. Hopefully.

Yup, the Ford F series has been affected the most by the Chip Shortage, of the Big 3.

This I found as a positive sign that the PHEV Ranger will cover all models. Not just offered in the top trims. Hopefully also on the Super cab.

Ford F 150 Lightning. 70 K orders as of June 1.

Those seeking to reserve one of the F 150 electric trucks have the base truck, XLT, Lariat and Limited trims to choose from. The base, commercial-minded Lightning Pro model wears the attractive circa-$40,000 price tag. The Limited trim truck pictured above costs a whopping $90,000. The midrange XLT trim will set buyers back around $53,000 before destination charge.

I've searched all the googles and it seems that current hybrid trucks, upcoming Ranger included, only offer the hybrid option in crew cab configuration. Any thought as to why this is? Is the extra space in the crew area needed to house the battery? Why wouldn't the ext cab be enough space?

I really don't want nor need a crew cab, and would prefer the extra bed space, therefore very interested in a hybrid pickup with ext cab. Am I outside the norm here?

There has not been a lot of info released, so we do not know if the PHEV will be offered in the lower trims or on the Super Cab.
I am hoping to build a capable off road truck before I hit 60 years young , while I am still able. If Ford does not offer the PHEV in the Super Cab they will not be getting my money.
