If you run in truck enthusiast circles, you may have heard by now that Ford has plans to bring the Ranger back to the market. The truck was discontinued in 2011 due to worries that the Ranger would overshadow the F-150’s sales. Now, however, Ford has noticed the gap the Ranger’s absence has left in its pickup lineup – and in the market as a whole, where buyers looking for a sturdy mid-size pickup have been disappointed by the lack of choices. 2018 Ford Ranger info is scarce, but the news is slowly making its way to the public.
Plans to bring back the Ranger follow on the success of competitors’ trucks like the Colorado and Canyon, which were met with wild enthusiasm and success from enthusiasts and critics alike. Current speculation says the trucks could be getting a 2018 release date and a price tag under $25,000. Additionally, more interior technology and equipment, as well as a brand-new powertrain, are all expected to be seen in the new Ranger, though everything we know is just theories and the rumor mill at this point.
Ford Ranger info is scarce at the moment, but insiders have confirmed the truck will be different mechanically than its international counterpart, which is still being sold in some markets. The 2018 Ranger is said to be followed up by a brand-new Bronco, too, so Ford is investing time and money in bringing back old fan favorites.
