American auto maker Ford has released video footage of the 2022 Ranger pickup truck on various off-road testing situations prior to its official launch later this year.
In the footage (posted in Ford Thailand’s YouTube channel), the new Ranger is camouflaged but shows hints of the larger F-150 and its vertical lighting setup. It was shown being tested on MUD, GRIT, ROCK, SNOW and OFFROAD conditions, and performing some spectacular drift shots as well.
Although development of the Ranger is carried out in Australia, production takes place in several Ford plants around the world, including Thailand, which supplies the Asia-Pacific markets.
The new model will replace the ageing T6, which has been around since 2011. The official unveiling will be held later this year and the new model should hit the markets from 2022 onwards.
Apart from new design that features F-150 similarities, the 2022 Ranger is expected to come with a new engine as well as updated suspension and four-wheel-drive system. Among the interior upgrades are digital display for the driver as well as larger center touchscreen.
