I'm curious what you all think will be tweaked on the exterior of the Gen-6 Ranger for us in North America. Here's my theory.

Its confusing to me how an after market steel bumper will go on.
This is one of just many reasons why the NA version will be slightly different in appearance. But I'm with you. The protrusions on the front seem to be a design feature. They could remove the feature, but then it looks very vanilla. They could also 2-piece it, but then it will ruin the feature. It'll be interesting to see what they do.

Considering the differences between the current PX3 and the N/A Ranger, it'll follow similar changes.

With that, here's the Aussie 5G XLT vs. the NA 5G XLT.

Yeah, the more I think about it, them more I'm sure the NA version of the 6G Ranger will get an altered grill design with the protrusions on either side of the grill either removed of less pronounced. Otherwise, a two piece front will look rather goofy. But maybe I just need to see the Raptor version to see what 6G looks like with a steel bumper.

It's also worth noting that up until very recently our XLT had a completely different grill to the NA Ranger. It was a chromed version of the Wildtrak grill.

I don't think the CHMSL will move up to the roof. The Gladiator gets away with having it on the tailgate, and adding a hole to the back of the cab is undesirable engineering cost. I'd expect trailer connectors to move above the bumper step.

Interesting take. I just think for will continue to do it because they still do and it double as the location of on of the bed lights. As for the trailer connectors, I'm struggling to see it.

If they leave the CHMSL on the tailgate, then it isn't blocked by a bed cap or soft top.
