The 2019 Ford Ranger has been spotted while out testing in Dearborn, Michigan. The prototype model was sporting a camouflage yet it was missing the heavy curtain-style coverings usually used to keep major styling elements hidden.
There are two possibilities behind this; according to AutoBlog, the American-spec Ranger could look very similar to the global Ranger or the sheetmetal could just be used as a cover up to mask the American-market parts.
However, the global-spec Ranger’s bodywork may be too understated for American buyers. Perhaps Ford would give Ranger a toned down version of the F-150’s front and rear ends, while retaining the side stampings. So, there is a slim chance that we may be seeing the 2019 Ranger with C-shaped headlights and a three-bar grille.
Earlier reports have mentioned that the Ranger would be akin the Bronco, with which it would share its platform. But the new spy shots indicate that it would be a lot like the F-150 instead.
There is still no official info on its powertrains but folks are expecting to see Ford-GM’s new 10-speed automatic transmission in this brand new American Ranger.
