Ford Motor Company is planning to present us the new 2017 Ford Ranger. This excellent pickup truck will definitively impress us all with its improvements.
Improvements and exterior design
2017 Ford Ranger will be the next generation model. Therefore, we can expect it to undergo many changes inside, outside and under its hood. First of all, latest rumors say that the new Ranger will be lighter now. This is because of the usage of lightweight materials such as high strength steel and aluminum. This will affect general performance and fuel efficiency which are expected to be improved. Speaking of the exterior design, new Ford will look very modern and powerful. The front fascia will be revised with new redesigned grille and new bumper. The headlamps are also expected to be slightly refreshed and will feature LED lighting. The rear end should be also refreshed in order to look more attractive.
2017 Ford Ranger interior and features
The interior of 2017 Ford Ranger should also be slightly refreshed and upgraded. Comfort and quality should be on the highest level. The cabin will be able to welcome five passengers. The seats will be comfortable and upholstered in high quality leather. An 8-inch touch screen display will be placed on the center of the dashboard. It will also get new and modern tech features. Some of them are: dual-zone air conditioning, WiFi connectivity, anti-lock braking system, keyless entry, a rearview camera, stability control, cruise control and so on.
Engine and performance
When it comes to the powertrain of 2017 Ford Ranger, nothing is yet confirmed, but it is expected to be offered with two types of engines. The one is a 2.2-liter four cylinder diesel engine. This one will be able to produce 147 horsepower and 375 pound-feet of torque. The second option should be a 2.5-liter four cylinder diesel. This engine is expected to make 197 horsepower and 225 pound-feet of torque. The engines will be coupled to a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. New Ranger will be available with front-wheel and rear-wheel drive systems.
