We will see the return of 2020 Ford Ranger Australia soon. What kind of design will it have? What kind of engines will it use? What kind of features will it have? What about the release date and price? If you want to know the answers to these questions, you’d want to read on. We will tell you the answers.
2020 Ford Ranger Redesign
Seeing the 2020 Ford Ranger pictures, we expect the upcoming Ranger to have more aggressive designs for its front end and tailgate. It continues what the Ranger lineup has all this time. That is a sporty styling with a utilitarian interior as well as trim dimensions. Some people complain about its door panels which use hard plastic and its rather average-looking rear quarter view. Let’s withhold our judgment for now since its series-production example has not been seen yet.
Speaking of what will be under the hood the upcoming Ranger is going to use a 2.3-liter, incline-four EcoBoost engine. This engine can generate up to 300 horsepower and 320 pound-ft of torque. The engine will be paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission gearbox. So far, this is the only available engine. It appears that there will be no 2020 Ford Ranger diesel. Still, this has yet to be confirmed.
The 2020 Ford Ranger Australia will come with lots of awesome features. For example, the Terrain Management System which is already used in the F-150 Raptor. This feature allows for specific settings for specific terrain. There are four modes: normal, sand, mud and ruts and grass, gravel and snow.
Another example is the Trail Control. This feature is similar to cruise control. The difference is that Trail Control is used for low-speed and/or rugged terrain. In the 2020 Ranger, the system operates at up to 20 mph, which makes it great for terrain like smooth dirt roads.
2020 Ford Ranger Australia Release Date and Price
So far, there is no official statement about the exact release date. Nor there is for 2020 Ford Ranger Australia price. That said, being a 2020 model we estimate the upcoming Ranger to enter the market in the second half of this year. And as for the price, the starting price should be around $25,000 for the base model.
The sales potential for the 2020 Ranger is quite significant. We can see it from Ranger’s competitions. For instance, GMC Canyon is sold over 100,000 units while Toyota Tacoma is sold over 180,000 back in 2015.
It will not be difficult for Ranger to exceed those numbers. After all, during its peak in 1999, the Ranger was sold almost 350,000 units. To exceed those numbers, the most important thing Ford needs to avoid is selling the new Ranger at a higher price than its competitions.
These are what you can expect from the upcoming 2020 Ford Ranger Australia. With such design, engines, and features, we expect the upcoming Ranger to be good enough to compete against Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier, GMC Canyon, and Chevy Colorado. That is, as long as Ford doesn’t charge too much for it.
