Here’s a first look at the ’24 Ford Ranger Lariat completely undisguised.
Ford officially debuted the next-gen Ranger last 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, the U.S. Ranger will be nearly identical to the Global Ranger. The only visible exterior differences are a sliding rear window, a high-mount brake light and a backup camera. Originally, it was thought that the U.S. Ranger would get an exclusive front end (due to camo’d prototypes after the international debut), but that won’t be the case.
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.
