Spy Shots: 2024 Ford Ranger XLT Shows Off Minimal Changes in Dearborn


Here’s a look at the ’24 Ford Ranger XLT.

Ford officially debuted the next-gen Ranger in February, but only showed the EU and Global trims. It was crickets when it came to the U.S. market, other than a guarantee from Jim Farley that the Ranger (and Raptor) would be on sale sometime in 2023.

Looking at these shots, we can see that the U.S. Ranger doesn’t stray too far from the Global Ranger. The main change comes from a revised lower front fascia and grille, where the U.S. Ranger ditches the exaggerated raised plastic that meets the grille, and opts for a smoother, more flush finish. Around back, the differences appear to be minimal, with the addition of a high-mount brake light and a backup camera.

Powertrain options are expected to remain the same, but with the addition of a hybrid option (we’re hearing PHEV) sometime in the future).

Expect an official debut for the U.S. Ranger in the coming months.
