    Q: Is there any design DNA from the 2021 Ranger?

    Ranger has always been a successful design that has resonated positively around the world, so it is only natural that this new design builds on the successful designs of previous models. It’s evolved substantially though, and showcases a tougher, wider and more stable look. For more details around this check out design page.

  • Q: What was the starting point of the design of the new Ranger?

    Q: What was the starting point of the design of the new Ranger?

    Our customers. Ford Ranger is known as a truly global truck, and you don’t evolve something that iconic without talking to the people who use it every day. To do that we needed to sit, talk to and understand customers around the world in order to figure out what needs they had and what they wanted in a Ranger. Our customers deserve to know that we are listening to them, reading their comments, and reflecting that in our vehicles. Next-Gen Ranger is loaded with features inspired by customer feedback. For more on this, check out this design story article.

  • Q: What design features most differentiate the Next-Gen Ranger from your competitors?

    Q: What design features most differentiate the Next-Gen Ranger from your competitors?

    Next-Gen Ranger is striking and stands out on its own while still being unmistakably built with Ford DNA. If we had to pull out one thing that sets Ranger apart at first sight, it would be the upper grille and lamps. The execution of this area is really tough and interlocked, designed in a very modern and striking way. We're really excited about this, for more design features, check out the design page.

  • Q: What are the most notable new exterior features that separate this Ranger from the previous models?

    Q: What are the most notable new exterior features that separate this Ranger from the previous models?

    It’s an all-new design. We dialled up our key Ranger cues and made them more contemporary. It became bolder and tougher at the front, but with muscular tension and athleticism on the side. We’ve increased the track to create a more stable and agile appearance, and the wheelbase has been increased to create less overhang at the front and give it an ‘off-road ready’ stance. Importantly though, at every stage of the design process we kept our customer's needs at the centre of the design. For more details on design features, check out our design page.
