Welcome to Inquirer Mobility

Ford Philippines has launched the much-awaited next-generation Ford Ranger, the smartest, most versatile, and most capable Ranger ever. The next-gen Ranger features improved capability and comfort, advanced technologies, and smart connectivity that deliver new and improved experiences to pick-up customers.

Alongside the local launch, Ford Philippines is also announcing that the next-gen Ranger will come with a 5-year warranty to enhance the ownership experience. The longer warranty offering will cover the next-gen Ranger for up to 5 years or total mileage of up to 150,000 kilometers, whichever comes first.

“We recognize that an important purchase consideration for our customers is vehicle ownership. That’s why we are launching the next-gen Ranger together with a longer warranty coverage to provide our customers with added protection and peace of mind. This is part of our commitment to enhance the Ford ownership experience as we continue to treat our customers like family,” shares Michael Breen, managing director, Ford Philippines.

New look, new capabilities

Visually, the next-generation Ranger is bold and confident, with a purposeful exterior that shares Ford’s global truck design DNA. The design features a defined new grille and signature C-clamp headlight treatment at the front while a subtle shoulder line down the sides incorporates new wheel-arches design that gives Ranger a sure-footed stance. For the first time, the next-gen Ranger is equipped with matrix LED headlights with Adaptive Front Lighting System for the Wildtrak 4×4 variant. Consistent with the look in front, the LED taillamps clamp onto the new tailgate, now proudly stamped with the RANGER badge.

Beneath the new bodywork is an upgraded chassis riding on a wheelbase 50mm longer and a track 50mm wider than the previous Ranger. With new fenders and larger wheel arches, the next-gen Ranger has a more dramatic, sculpted appearance.

The next-gen Ranger incorporates several intuitive designs, making the pick-up truck more user-friendly for any lifestyle. A rear box step makes accessing the cargo area easier and safer. Clamp pockets allows users to attach timber or tools to the tailgate work bench, which can also be concealed with spring loaded caps when not in use.

In the Wildtrak model, the roof rails create even more space for oversized cargo. For easier tailgate operations, the next-generation Ranger has the Tailgate Lift Assist–enabling users to close the tailgate with just a light touch. Cargo organizing also comes with a new load box and tailgate protective capping for more grip and safety.

Redesigned interior and enhanced connectivity

Inside, the next-gen Ranger is a step up from its previous iterations, using premium soft-touch materials to go with a roomy cabin. At the heart of the Ranger’s connective experience is the large 10-inch or best-in-class 12-inch touchscreen in the center stack. It complements the fully digital instrument panel and is loaded with Ford’s latest SYNC® 4A with wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto capability.

The next-gen Ranger is equipped with a 360-degree camera to make crossing and parking a breeze in tight urban spaces. The design team also created clever storage and useful features for owners, such as digital owner’s manual, new climate system, and wireless charging. In addition, the door pockets are designed to carry more, the wide dash conceals an upper glovebox and there are storage bins under and behind the rear seats.

Improved ride and handling

To develop the ride and handling expected of a truck customer’s use for a wide range of work, family and play, Ford engineers focused on the fundamentals and made improvements on the chassis and suspension. They moved the front wheels forward by 50mm for a better approach angle and outboard for better off-road articulation, both of which improve the off-roading experience. They also shifted the rear suspension dampers outboard of the frame rails to give drivers and passengers a better ride both on- and off-road, no matter if they’re carrying heavy cargo for work, or just taking the family out for dinner.

Reliable drivetrain and drive modes

The next-gen Ranger gives customers a choice of engines to suit their needs and lifestyles.

The 2.0L Bi-Turbo mated with a 10-speed automatic transmission is available on the 4×4 Wildtrak variant capable of 210PS of maximum power and 500Nm of maximum torque, while the 2.0L Single Turbo mated with a 6-speed automatic or manual transmission is available for the other Ranger variants, capable of 170PS of maximum power and 405Nm of maximum torque.

The next-gen Ford pick-up also allows customers to explore new horizons through selectable drive modes that include Normal, Eco, Tow Haul, Slippery, Mud/Ruts and Sand. These drive modes allow the Ranger to tackle any destination and deliver optimized performance for different surfaces, road conditions and vehicle usage.

Smarter and safer than ever

Safety remains at the core of the next-gen Ranger with its suite of smart driver-assist technologies that include Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering, Lane Keeping System with Road Edge Detection, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Aid & Lane Departure Warning, Pre-Collision Assist with Intersection, among others. It also comes with up to seven (7) airbags, providing exceptional protection for everyone inside the vehicle.

The next-gen Ranger also has an Intelligent Oil Life Monitor (IOLM), a smart new feature that tells the owner when to have an oil change based on actual engine data, operating conditions, and owner driving habits.

“With a bold look and design, premium interior, enhanced ride comfort, and outstanding new capabilities, the next-gen Ranger is set to once again define the pickup truck segment in the country. We’re truly excited to offer this amazing vehicle to our customers whose needs and lifestyles cut across work, play, and family,” adds Breen.
