The new 2023 Ford Ranger entered US production in July

According to a report from overseas, the new-generation Ford Ranger pickup for North America could hit showrooms in the second half of this year.

The new generation Ford Ranger is scheduled to go into production in July 2023 in Detroit, according to a Ford Ranger administrator Ranger6G forum website.

The 2023 Ranger, previously caught on camera with minimal camouflage during testing in the US, is a version of the vehicle that was developed in Australia (but built in Thailand), with modifications to meet regulatory requirements and buyer preferences in North America fulfill.

These include structural changes to meet tougher crash testing and rollover requirements, as well as the fitment of the 2.3-liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that will be the number one choice for US customers.

The Ranger Raptor confirmed for the US and Canada last year and reported by Motor1.comwill have the same V6 twin-turbo petrol engine as for Australia.

speculation about the Ranger6G site hints at a public unveiling of the US version of the latest Ford Ranger at the 2023 New York Auto Show, taking place April 7-16.

There are also reports that dealers will start taking orders in the US spring, which could be as early as April, with the first Ford Rangers leaving the Detroit factory for dealers in July.

There is nothing yet about official prices or the model range.

The history of the ranger in the US differs significantly from Australia.

Ford dropped the Ranger in 2011 but brought it back in 2019 as a major update and upgrade to the Australian model, with visual, engineering and technical differences that also fed into the Ford Broncho development program.

Now the two Ranger models are largely identical, and the 2023 US pickup truck – which could be badged as a 2024 model – will be built in Detroit at one of four Ford Ranger production sites, along with Thailand (where Australian vehicles are located). built), South Africa (where the Volkswagen Amarok version is also made) and South America.
