The new Ford Ranger 3.0-litre V6 will be the torquiest dual-cab ute on sale in Australia when it arrives in the middle of 2022.

The Blue Oval has confirmed the 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel engine option produces 184kW of power and 600Nm of torque and is available in the Ranger XLT, Sport, and Wildtrak.

That’s down 6kW on the engine in the Volkswagen Amarok W580, the current dual-cab powerhouse, but up 20Nm.

The rest of the range will be offered with a choice of two 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engines. A single-turbo is version is offered at the bottom end of the range, with 125kW and 405Nm, and a bi-turbo version with 154kW (down 3kW on the outgoing Ranger) and 500Nm features further up.

The range-topping Raptor is powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol engine with 292kW and 583Nm.

Pricing starts at $35,930 before on-road costs for the entry-level Ranger XL 4×2 single cab chassis with the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel, and extends to $85,490 before on-road costs for the full-out Ranger Raptor with the 3.0-litre twin-turbo petrol V6 petrol engine.

The Australian-developed Ford Ranger has available part- and full-time four-wheel drive, up to seven selectable drive modes, an available integrated trailer braking controller, more interior technology, clever tub features on certain models, and a plug-in hybrid-ready architecture.

Ford has also confirmed the new-generation Ranger has a maximum braked towing capacity of 3500kg (2500kg for Raptor) with a 350kg down ball limit. Payload is up to 1327kg, gross vehicle mass (GVM) is up to 3350kg, and gross combined mass (GCM) is up to 6400kg.

The 2022 Ford Ranger is available in single cab-chassis, super cab-chassis, super cab pickup, dual cab-chassis, and dual-cab pickup body configurations with 4×2 and 4×4 options.

Initial stock levels of the Thai-sourced Ford Ranger ute were recently detailed in a dealer bulletin shared with CarExpert, revealing the first vehicles will start arriving in dealers by June 2022. Ford will have “approximately” 7000 to 7500 cars to sell as part of its first allocation.

Engines

The 2022 Ford Ranger is available with a choice of four different turbocharged powertrains ranging from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel to a fire-breathing 3.0-litre EcoBoost twin-turbo petrol V6.

Standard on the entry-level XL is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine producing 125kW of power and 405Nm of torque. This is exclusively mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and is available in two- and four-wheel drive configurations, depending on the variant.

Available on the rest of the range, excluding the Baja-ready Raptor, is the familiar 2.0-litre Bi-Turbo four-cylinder diesel engine producing 154kW (down 3kW on the outgoing Ranger) and an unchanged 500Nm. This is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and is available in in two- and part-time four-wheel drive configurations, depending on the variant.

The 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, which produces 184kW and 600Nm, is available in the XLT double cab-chassis and the XLT, Sport and Wildtrak double cab pickup models. This is also mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, with drive being sent through a full-time four-wheel drive system.

Only available on the range-topping Raptor model is a 3.0-litre EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 petrol engine producing 292kW and 583Nm. This is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, with drive being sent through a full-time four-wheel drive system.

4×4 features

The base four-wheel drive system available with the 2.0-litre single- and twin-turbo four-cylinder diesel engines is a part-time system with a two-speed electronic shift-on-the-fly transfer case featuring 2H, 4H and 4L modes.

It’s what we have come to expect from most dual-cab utes, forcing owners to manually shift from two- to four-wheel drive when the going gets rough. It shouldn’t be driven in four-wheel drive on sealed roads.

The 2022 Ford Ranger with the 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel or 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo petrol engines, however, feature an on-demand four-wheel drive system that offers the same 2H, 4H and 4L modes, but also has a 4A automatic mode that can be used on “high-traction surfaces” like paved roads.

This 4A mode when selected can continuously distribute power between the front and rear axles for “optimum performance in all on-road conditions”. Essentially, it behaves like an all-wheel drive car in 4A.

There’s also an electronic rear differential lock that can be activated through the Sync4 infotainment touchscreen.

Depending on the Ranger variant, there are a variety of drive modes that change the vehicle’s throttle response, gearshifts, traction control and ABS. These include the following:

  • Normal
  • Eco
  • Sport
  • Tow/Haul
  • Slippery
  • Mud/Ruts (off-road use)
  • Sand (off-road use)
  • Baja
  • Rock Crawl

Available on some models is an Off-Road Screen (ORS) that’s able to display the following information:

  • Driveline and electronic diff lock indication
  • Steering angle
  • Vehicle pitch and roll angles
  • Off-road features buttons

A surround-view camera, which is available on some models, can also be interacted with in this ORS.

Fuel Economy

Ford is yet to detail official fuel economy figures for the new-generation Ranger, but says lists all powertrains meet Euro 5 emissions standards.

Idle stop-start is only available on the 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel and 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo petrol engines.

It’s worth noting though selected fleet vehicles with the 2.0-litre Bi-Turbo diesel engine will have idle stop-start fitted to meet customer requirements.

Dimensions

Ford has yet to detail exterior dimensions of the next-generation Ranger, but says it has a 50mm longer wheelbase and a track that’s 50mm wider than the outgoing Ranger.

The widening of the track has enabled owners to fit a Euro pallet between the rear arches of the Ranger pickup.

The Blue Oval has confirmed that maximum braked towing capacity is up to 3500kg in all but the Raptor (2500kg), with a 350kg tow ball download limit.

Maximum payload is up to 1327kg, gross vehicle mass (GVM) is up to 3350kg, and gross combined mass (GCM) is up to 6400kg. To read a detailed deep-dive on the 2022 Ford Ranger’s towing and payload capabilities, click here.

In vehicles fitted with Ford’s factory Tow Pack, there’s a trailer coverage system that allows you to set the length of the trailer you’re towing. It supports lengths varying from 2.4 metres to 10 metres long. This system takes the length of the trailer into account and adjusts the sensitivity of the blind-spot assist.

Depending on the model, the new Ranger also features an integrated trailer brake controller, trailer connection checklist and trailer light check system.

Ranger XLS models and above (excluding Raptor) also have a Tow/Haul drive mode that optimises gear shift timing to maintain the best power delivery and engine braking, as well as reducing shift ‘busyness’ when towing.

Servicing and Warranty

Ford has yet-to-list servicing intervals and pricing for the new-generation Ranger, but a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty is expected.
