Ford has released teaser pictures and a video of the next-generation Ranger bakkie, which will be fully revealed later in 2021 and launched in 2022.
From 2022, the new-generation one-tonner will be locally built for SA and export as part of a R15.8bn investment in Ford’s Silverton plant near Pretoria. Ford’s all-new bakkie will be built for the local market and export to more than 100 countries. The plant also will manufacture the next-generation Volkswagen Amarok on a shared platform with the new Ranger as part of a strategic alliance between the two automakers.
Ford’s new Ranger is shown being tested to the extreme in harsh off road conditions including mud, mountains and snow.
The #NextGenRanger pickup is the smartest, most versatile, and most capable Ranger ever. And here’s your first official glimpse.
Though the bakkie is heavily camouflaged, the images reveal there are C-shaped LED headlights and that the vehicle borrows styling cues from its larger US cousin — the Ford F-150.
The new Ranger is said to offer improved off-road capability, more on-road refinement and updated technology that includes Ford's Sync4 infotainment system with a larger touchscreen.
No technical details are disclosed but the 157kW/500Nm 2.0l four-cylinder twin-turbo diesel engine, first introduced in the current Ranger Raptor, will almost certainly be carried over. To appease the power hounds, flagship versions of the new Ranger may get a powerful 3.0l V6 turbo diesel under the bonnet, either the 185kW unit from the F-150 or the 190kW engine from the Amarok.
