2022 Ford Ranchero News

2022 Ford Ranchero News

The Ford marque is well known for producing powerful pickup trucks. Many of them are large and in charge except just a few. One of these is the Ford Courier that is found on Brazilian roads. Despite proving successful in this market, the Courier is a little tiny by American pickup truck standards. As such, it is being replaced by a new model known as the 2022 Ford Ranchero. Here’s what we know about it.

Larger dimensions

Based on the information that we currently have, the Ford Ranchero is expected to be built upon the Ford Focus platform. Hence, it will be much longer in size. This will provide room for it to be transformed from a single cab to a double cab vehicle. The 2022 Ford Ranchero also has a higher ground clearance and a large, usable bed in the back. It is inspired by a Ranchero model that was produced between 1957 and 1979. Upon release, it will compete with large pickup trucks from competing companies.

Exterior design

There are various renderings on the Internet of this new pickup truck. Despite painting this anticipated model from Ford in various ways, they all have some common features. For example, artists and the motoring fraternity around the world are fairly positive that the 2022 Ford Ranchero will have an updated front fascia.

All reports point to larger front air intake vents, pronounced fog lights and a chrome grille. The Ford nameprint will also be most likely embossed on the grille’s bars instead of having the singular blue oval logo. Its front headlights are definitely going to be built using LED technology according to modern trends. This will grant the driver better visibility. Daytime running lights may come as standard in this new pickup truck.

Seeing as it is being built to offer more performance in rugged working conditions as well as off-road, this new pickup will most likely be fitted with some wheel well covers. Other features that will improve its performance as a work horse and off-road truck include a hardened steel skidplate, electronically extendable side step and dual tailpipes.

From our projections, the new Ranchero will be a double cabin truck with 4 doors. Its bed will be longer due to the change in chassis foundation. This will help drivers bring along more passengers and haul larger loads. This new pickup truck will ride a little higher thanks to extended shocks and larger wheels. Judging from the dimensions of its competitor trucks, the 2022 Ford Ranchero could ride on 21 inch wheels straight from the factory. Its taillights are also most likely to have LED technology.

Interior design

Traditionally, Ford pickup trucks have had boxy, functional interiors. Over the last few years, pickup truck manufacturers have began to make the cabin more passenger-friendly. This has warranted the introduction of infotainment system, aesthetically pleasing surfaces and more connectivity.

We hope that the 2022 Ford Ranchero will go along with this trend and have a digital instrument panel, a multi-functional steering wheel and a touch-screen infotainment system. To experience a combination of function and technology, we estimate that drivers will only have to tap on digital buttons on these panels to adjust traction, power distribution and other factors that are essential when driving pickup trucks.

This new pickup truck will seat 5 people on 2 rows. Thanks to the extended wheelbase, the passengers in the second row can enjoy more legroom. As such, the back seats in this pickup truck are unlikely to be cramped. Upholstery materials that are available include leather and fabric in colors such as black, grey, brown and tan.

Engine and specs

Online reports indicate that there could be a variety of different engines available to power the 2022 Ford Ranchero. It could have a 1.5 or a 2.0 liter EcoBoost turbo engine. If Ford decides to release this pickup truck with a Raptor model, it could have a 2.3 liter turbo engine sourced from the Mustang. These engines are most likely going to be fueled with petrol. However, a diesel engine could also be utilized. Unfortunately, Ford does not seem to be eager about releasing a Hybrid or electric version any time soon.

Release date, price and availability

From all accounts, the new Ford Ranchero could be released in 2022. If this comes to pass, the cost for its base model could be under $20,000. If they decide to release a Raptor version of the truck, it would cost around double this amount.
