The 2016 Ford Ranger has been officially unveiled by the car manufacturer as it will be offered for sale from the third quarter of this year.
The 2016 Ford Ranger is nothing more than a simple facelift adopted by the model. This is bringing a new design, which will be helping it stand out from a crowd, along with the lane keeping aid, lane keeping alert, adaptive cruise control, front and rear park assist, hill descent control, hill launch assist, emergency brake assistance, adaptive load control, forward alert, the 8-inch touch screen display for the Ford SYNC 2 infotainment system and several other tweaks. The updated pickup truck is also coming with a revised suspension system, with better handling, more precise steering and a towing capacity of 3,500 kg (7,716 lbs).
Under its hood, the facelifted version of the pickup truck has been also equipped with an updated 3.2 liter five-cylinder Duratorq TDCi diesel burner, with a revised exhaust gas recirculation, allowing the fuel consumption to go down by 18 percent while producing a total of 200 HP (147 kW) and 470 Nm (347 lb-ft) of torque, connected to the wheels through a 6-speed manual or an automatic transmission. The 2.2 liter four-cylinder Duratorq TDCi is also available, with its 160 HP (118 kW) and 385 Nm (284 lb-ft) of torque, while in some select markets this will get a high efficiency version, with 130 HP (96 kW), improving the fuel economy by 22 percent. The 2.5 liter Duratec gasoline burner is also available, with 166 HP (122 kW) and 225 Nm (166 lb-ft) of torque. The updated Ranger will be produced in Argentina, Thailand and South Africa.
