While it was on its rounds of testing around Dearborn, Michigan, the upcoming Ford Ranger was captured by dedicated spy photographers. Despite being disguised, the prototype lacked in the usual heavy draping often placed to hide drastic changes.

Well, this could be because the US-spec Ranger may be almost identical to the global-spec Ranger or it could be that the sheet metal was placed just as a mask to hide the exclusive American parts, according to a report by AutoBlog.

However, the global-spec model’s bodywork could be a tad too simple for the average American Joe. Ford may be incorporating a slightly lower variant of the F-150’s front and back fascia on this model while still retaining its side stampings.

This indicates that we may be seeing the 2019 Ranger arriving with C-shaped headlights along with a three-bar grille.

Some time back, we heard that the upcoming Ranger will be similar to the Bronco – especially since they both share the same platform. But, this new spy shot shows that the model could be inclining toward the F-150, as well.

Ford has yet to disclose any powertrain information on its upcoming Ranger but fans are pretty positive that it will be coming with Ford-GM’s latest 10-speed automatic tranny.

From spy photos here in Australia, there is little difference in the up coming US version and the Global one. US version is being developed and designed in Australia
