THE Ford showed the face – and the details – of the new ranger. In global presentation, the 2023 model was fully unveiled and, as expected, it looked like its little sister Maverick. By the way, the big one F-150 it also lends some features to the average pickup truck, such as aesthetics and mechanics. However, it is worth noting that the newcomer’s production is only scheduled for the middle of next year in Thailand and South Africa. In Brazil, it does not arrive until 2023 – imported from Argentina.
Starting with the design, the pickup does not deny its DNA and stands out for its front grille, cut by a bar that invades the headlights region. These have a “C” shape.

The new Ranger’s cabin has received quite an upgrade. That dated interior leaves the scene to make room for more modernity. The digital instrument panel is one of the highlights. But the 12″ multimedia center steals the spotlight for you. Vertically, the screen brings together the SYNC4 entertainment system and other features, such as 360-degree cameras and even off-road trail monitoring. Another screen, with 10, 1″, is also available depending on version.
Still in technological equipment, the pickup continues with the new generation of FordPass. The system, in short, allows control of the truck through an application installed on the smartphone. You can turn on the air conditioning, check car data (such as fuel quantity, for example), lock and unlock the doors, and so on. For the cell phone, by the way, it has a wireless charger.
