The current T6 generation of the Ford Ranger was unveiled way back in 2011, before undergoing a facelift in March 2015. It appears that an all-new Ranger is still some years away because spyshots of a new Ranger facelift has just surfaced thanks to Thai website headlightmag.
From the pictures, we can tell that new Ranger will feature a slightly revised grille and Ford Everest-like headlights. Additionally, the design of the front bumper is appears to be different.
Changes towards the rear are less apparent, though this particular Ranger wears a “Limited” emblem on the tailgate. The Ford Ranger range is also expected to be rearranged, so this particular “Limited” model could sit below the range-topping Wildtrak variant.
As for powertrains, the new Ford Ranger is expected to continue with current engine options - a 2.2-litre commonrail turbo diesel and a 3.2-litre commonrail turbo diesel diesel, both from Ford's Duratorq family.
Apart from the updated T6 Ford Ranger, sources have also indicated that higher performance Ranger Raptor variant, powered exclusively by a 2.0-litre EcoBlue twin turbo diesel mated to a 10-speed automatic, could be in the plans. The hotter Ranger Raptor is also said to feature much beefier off-road suspension, additional undercarriage protection and enhanced 4WD system.
