Reinvented pick up will be shown on Wednesday morning, following more than one million miles of extreme testing
The next-generation Ford Ranger pick-up, which will certainly include hybrid power for the first time, will be revealed tomorrow morning (24 November).
The new Ford Ranger has been exposed. Click here to read more.
The brand-new design, which changed the existing T6 generation maker that has gotten on sale considering that 2011, will certainly be unveiled at 0700hrs on Ford’s YouTube channel, where the manufacturer has actually published a short video teaser that offers mean the version’s design.
The model has actually formerly been detected with a camouflage layout livery undergoing examinations in extreme off-road settings ahead of its launch in 2023.
Ford claims the greatly updated pick-up vehicle has covered around 6213 miles (10,000 kilometres) of desert driving, 776,714 miles (1,250,000 kilometres) of client driving and also 388,357 miles (625,000 km of tough off-road toughness screening, all with a maximum load capacity.
The Ranger has actually likewise undertaken “hundreds of hrs” of computer system and also real-world simulations covering aerodynamics and also the sturdiness of parts and also structures.
” It is essential that our consumers have the ability to depend on the Ranger to supply years of reliable solution,” said Ranger principal program designer John Willems. “So we have actually gone to excellent sizes to subject the next-gen Ranger to severe tests– stressing it far more than a common customer would certainly– to assist guarantee it prepares to encounter every little thing life throws at it.
” Whether it’s tackling sloppy bush tracks, coping with the rigours of extreme tropical climate, lugging over Alpine passes or enduring temperatures of greater than 50deg C, the Ranger has to do it all.”
Ford says it started making use of computer system simulations because some examinations were believed to be too rigorous for people. Simulations as well as robotics have actually replaced people for the a lot more severe examinations, such as the ‘squeak and also rattle’ rig, where the Ranger’s suspension as well as entire body is exposed to punishing examination cycles that are repeated 24/7.
