Next Ford Ranger shows off as global reveal approaches

We're likely closer to a new Ford Ranger than we realize. Well, at least for global markets outside North America. On Thursday, Ford Australia published a new video showing off the next-generation Ranger under a much lighter camouflage than we saw previously. It's really more of a fun, artistic wrap that lets us see the new truck better than ever.

Research

The digital-looking camouflage is supposed to take elements from the Bronco R race SUV, but I don't really see that. It looks cool, but I'm not sure where the Bronco R elements really come in. In any case, the truck certainly looks fresher from the rear with new taillights and some embossed lines on the tailgate. However, the camo still does a good job at hiding many of the truck's design elements -- as it should.

When we do see the new truck later this year, don't expect it to come to America right off the bat. Instead, rumors suggest Ford will introduce the North American-spec Ranger for production in July 2023. It's not clear what the delay's for, but it could very well be due to a host of different specifications to meet American truck buyers' needs better. Take any specs announced for the global model with a grain of salt, in other words. If anything, a turbo-four engine with a plug-in hybrid system sounds like one powertrain that could make its way to North America.
