3 Things You Need To Know About The Upcoming 2022 Ford Courier

Ford announced back in January that they will be introducing a new compact pickup that will slot below the new Ford Ranger. Obviously, the Courier name came up.

As Ford continues to prepare for the very near future when all cars will be removed from the portfolio, many new SUVs and trucks are beginning to surface but none of which may turn out to be more important than the small Ford Courier pickup.

The Ford Courier name is an old one, far older than we remember in North America. The model started in the early 50s but disappeared from our shores by the mid-80s, although it continued in other markets until midway through this decade. Now, a new one is on its way and here are three things you need to know about the vehicle:

1) It’ll be based on the new Ford Focus. As we know, the Ford Focus will not be offered here but its all-new platform will serve as the foundation for the little truck.

2) Powering the Courier will be an EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. FWD will be standard however optional AWD configurations are quite possible.

3) Once the Fiesta and Focus are gone, the Ford EcoSport will become the most inexpensive Blue Oval product. Historically, the Ranger was one of the cheapest Fords but that’s changed now. The new Courier may very well reclaim the title of the most affordable Ford.

The 2022 Ford Courier is expected sometime in 2021 and production should take place at the Ford Cuautitlan plant in Mexico.
