Ford Teases the North American Version of the 2024 Ranger Days Before its Launch

The 2024 Ford Ranger is teased in a video ahead of its launch planned on Wednesday.

  • The U.S. and Canadian version of the new Ranger and Ranger Raptor will be unveiled on May 10.

  • This version is expected to be almost identical to the 2024 Rangers sold in other markets.

  • The Raptor version could be powered by a 3.0L EcoBoost V6 engine that delivers over 400 horsepower.

Ford released a teaser video of the new 2024 Ranger in its North American form only days ahead of its planned launch.

Shown at the Kentucky Derby, the video gives a vague idea of what to expect, but reports say the truck sold in North America will be almost identical to those offered in other markets around the world.

Since the new Ranger has already been launched a while ago in Australia and Europe, its design is not much of a secret.

The latest teaser confirms the truck will feature new C-shaped LED daytime running lamps and headlamps that resemble those of the smaller Maverick.

As with the current model, the Ranger name will be embossed into the tailgate under the Ford badge.

The new Raptor version will be identified with a logo mounted on the upper right corner of the tailgate as well as with what looks like Beadlock-style wheels, as can be found on some trims of the Bronco Raptor.

Another similarity with the Bronco Raptor could be found under the hood. Indeed, reports show that the most powerful version of the new mid-size truck could be powered by the same 3.0L EcoBoost V6 engine as the Bronco Raptor.

This means that drivers could benefit from an output of 418 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque under the right foot.

Regular versions of the 2024 Ford Ranger are expected to retain the same 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder engine as the current model, but an increase in output is likely, giving the base Ranger close to 300 horsepower.

Few details are known about the interior of the revised Ranger, but a new digital instrument cluster and a larger screen for the infotainment system are expected since European versions have received these upgrades.

More information will be revealed Wednesday during the launch of the North American 2024 Ranger.
