Ford has finally announced that the much-anticipated next-generation Ford Ranger will be unveiled on November 24.
According to the American automaker, the next-generation Ford Ranger has been reimagined, redesigned, and reengineered to be the smartest, most versatile, and most capable Ranger ever for customers in more than 180 markets around the world. Ford conducted more than 5,000 interviews and worked with hundreds of pick-up owners, in dozens of workshops across the globe to find out how owners used their trucks, what they liked, what they wished they had, and what experiences mattered the most to them.
You can see the next-generation Ford Ranger on November 24, streaming live on the Ford Philippines Facebook and YouTube pages at 3:00 pm.
The next-generation Ford Ranger has already been spied undergoing testing in Thailand. We’ve already seen how the rear and front end of the Ranger looks like, or at least a hint of it. From these photos courtesy of Ranger6G that we’ve already posted a few weeks ago, we can see its Maverick-inspired front end, with its single-bar grille connecting the two C-shaped LED headlights.
The front bumper, however, looks like a minor revision of what’s currently found in the current T6 Ranger, suggesting that its platform might be a heavily revised version of the current T6. As for the side and rear, the Ranger seems to have more straight lines than the outgoing model.
We still have no clue on what the interior will look like, though rumors suggest that it will utilize the next-generation SYNC4 infotainment system with a massive 12.8-inch vertical touch screen and 10.25-inch fully digital instrument cluster.
What we also know at this point is that the next-generation Volkswagen Amarok will utilize the same platform as the Ranger. Will this mean that its German sibling could potentially be sold in the Philippines? Let’s certainly hope so.
