The Ford Ranger was probably the most popular smaller truck in the United States up until the year that Ford stopped making it available. Many consumers have noted that this move was a mistake though, and Ford may be coming around to offering it again. In fact, the 2016 Ford Ranger US version may be available soon.
Numerous pictures have caught the 2016 Ford Ranger being tested in the United States. However, although this news does not mean that the Ranger is a sure thing for the market in America, its appearance is causing hope for truck drivers who miss this model.
2016 FORD RANGER: ENGINE AND FUEL EFFICIENCY
On the business side, the 2016 Ford Ranger would fill out Ford’s lineup and be a great addition to their current offerings. While it’s unsure of the specifications, if it came with the 3.2 liter diesel engine that’s capable of towing a train locomotive, it would certainly be very popular in today’s market. 2016 Ford Ranger is often called the global ranger, and is about 10% smaller than the Ford F150, but has much better fuel economy. In some cases, it may even reach about 30 miles per gallon.
Of course, the aluminum body structure and the 2.7 liter EcoBoost V6 mean that the 2015 model F150 could possible have a great fuel economy, but this model is still more of a truck than most people need. A smaller, less expensive Ranger that’s designed for entry level truck buyers would find a wider appeal in today’s market. Since fuel economy is a primary factor when it comes to car buying decisions, this model is highly looked for by American truck owners.
2016 Ford Ranger: US Release Date
While the Ranger is currently available in other countries, Ford’s official position is that bringing the Ranger to the United State’s market doesn’t make financial sense at the current time. The marketing department has been referring interested consumers to the F150, thinking that it’s going to fill the need. However, as recent photos from the Denver area showed, deferring questions about the Ranger still hasn’t stopped Ford from testing it in the United States. Of course, with Ford’s attention and investments centered on launching the F-150 and also developing an overhauled lineup of their Super Duty models, it’s unlikely that the Ranger is high on their priority list.
While there is no current news on the Ranger and its role in the US marketplace, consumers are eagerly anticipating this announcement. With such attention, it’s going to be difficult for Ford to ignore this market segment.
