Entry-level 2015 Ford Ranger caught
The facelifted 2015 Ford Ranger has been spied again in Thailand, but this time it’s the entry-level single-cab that’s been caught.
The facelift 2015 Ford Ranger has been spied again testing in Thailand by forum site Headlight Mag. With no camouflage, the photos clearly show the entry-level single-cab model which takes its styling cues from the 2015 Ford Everest.
The changes over the current generation Ranger are obvious, and will tie the facelift model into the wider Ford family, and you can clearly see the similarities in the snout which has more of a shark nose look about it which looks to be straight off the current Falcon.
Details are still pretty thin, but we know the Ranger and the Everest are almost identical under the skin, although the Everest will get a different rear suspension set-up and more techno wizardry. Ford hasn’t released details on the engines yet, but there’s a chance, depending on the market, it’ll make use of the same engines going into the Everest, and they are: 2.0-litre turbocharged, four-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine; 2.2-litre turbocharged, four-cylinder Duratorq diesel engine; and a 3.2-litre turbocharged, five-cylinder Duratorq diesel engine.
Ford hasn’t released either power and torque or fuel consumption figures for these engines, but claims 2.0L and 2.2L engines will offer best-in-class fuel consumption, and suggests the 2.0L four-cylinder petrol engine will offer more power and torque than a conventional 3.5-litre V6 engine.
