AUCKLAND, New Zealand, January 25, 2022– Whether next-generation Ranger is being used for work, family or play, Ford knows its customers rely on a pickup that is functional, convenient and durable. And Next-Gen Ranger goes all-out with a wider cargo box packed with features and opportunities to transform the space into a total cargo management makerspace.
Customer-centered design led to innovative features throughout the truck, while a relentless testing and engineering program ensured every facet of the Ranger’s versatility was truly Built Ford Tough.
“Our intent was not to simply create a good truck. We wanted to deliver an exceptional one that people would want to own – one that customers around the world could trust to tackle anything,” said Gary Boes, Enterprise Product Line Management director, Global Trucks.
Next-Gen Ranger offers an array of organisation and storage solutions to secure cargo, make fitting accessories a cinch and even DIY customisation. For instance, owners can create segmented DIY storage spaces, both big and small, by sliding pieces of wood into slots moulded into the bedliner, or even get creative and build things like a bike rack.
There are tie-downs mounted in the bed, and on the Wildtrak variant there are external tie-down rails and sliding cleats that can be adjusted into nine positions to help secure odd-shaped cargo.⁸ The new rear load box access step¹ is the result of more than 5000 interviews with pickup owners, learning how they used their trucks and what they wanted from their next one.
For those who use their vehicle for adventure, the addition of six structural attachment points in the protective load box capping, make it easy to fit accessories like a canopy, cross bars or a tent, truly making Next-Gen Ranger the most versatile ever.
There’s now more storage space on the inside of Next-Gen Ranger too, from under-seat storage to retractable cup holders and a raft of cubby holes stashed around the cabin.
The Cargo Box – Versatility as a Workspace
Ford’s design team studied the ways customers used the cargo box – be they a tradesperson, adventurer or family who needed to carry ‘stuff’ – and developed many innovative ways to help them access and use the space more effectively.
The Cargo Box – Innovations for Load Carrying
The next-gen Ranger’s cargo box includes several new innovations that help customers customise the load area to suit their needs.
Interior – Versatility Inside Too
Ford designers have redesigned the interior of the next-gen Ranger to help customers keep their vehicle organised. More storage space inside and the new centre console design with dedicated storage compartments means owners can keep their next-gen Ranger more organised than ever before.
