The upcoming Ford Ranger was recently spotted while it was out running tests in Dearborn, Michigan. Although this prototype was disguised under a camouflage, it lacked in the heavy curtain-style coverings often used to hide major styling elements.
According to Auto Blog, the American version of the Ranger may be looking similar in style to the international version of the Ranger or it could be that the sheetmetal was only used as a mask to hide the American-exclusive components.
That said, the international Ranger’s bodywork may be a tad too understated to appeal to American consumers. Maybe Ford would provide the Ranger with a toned down variant of the F-150’s front and rear ends without messing with the side stampings.
This implies that there could be a possibility that we could be seeing the 2019 Ranger sporting C-shaped headlights as well as a three-bar grille.
Previous reports have stated that the Ranger would be very similar to the Bronco, aside from just sharing its platform. However, these new spy shots have shown that the model may be a lot like the F-150.
The automaker has yet to reveal details on its powertain but fans are expecting to see it boasting Ford-GM’s brand new 10-speed automatic transmission.
