2019 Ford Ranger: More Like F-150 Than Bronco

By  | 

The latest iteration of the Ford Ranger was recently spotted by spy photographers while it was doing its rounds of test over at Dearborn, Michigan. Despite being under camouflage, it was lacking in the typical heavy coverings often used to hide drastic revamps.

According to AutoBlog, there could be two reasons to this: the American variant of the Ranger may look similar to the global variant of it or it could be that the sheet metal was used as merely a cover up to mask the American-exclusive parts.

However, the global variant’s bodywork may be too simple for the average American and so, Ford may include a slightly lower version of the F-150’s front and back without foregoing the side stampings. This could mean that the upcoming Ranger may feature C-shaped headlights along with a three-bar grille.

Prior to this, many sources had hinted that the Ranger will be more like the Bronco, seeing that it even shares the same platform. But, these new spy shots show that it may be more like the F-150, instead.
There may be no official news on the Ranger’s powertrains but fans are quite sure that it will be boasting Ford-GM’s new 10-speed automatic transmission.

    Actually the Global Ranger has it more together than the current F150. Restyling you are showing is very very similar to the new Global Ranger
