Ford presently uses the Ranger in the United States with just its 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder. Although the Ranger feels new to the US market after leaving in 2011 and returning in 2019, what we have now is the 2015 update other markets already delighted in. For those doing the mathematics, that suggests the Ranger has to do with all set for a new generation. Ford is currently working on it and, according to Which Car in Australia, it’s also due for a new powertrain that ought to reach us here in the United States. Which Car’s sourced from Ford’s You Yangs showing premises in Australia says there will be two new powertrains, and one, in specific, ought to thrill lovers.
2021 Ford Ranger Engine
The source claims Ford is testing a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 Powerstroke diesel and a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter gasoline-powered V6 for the upgraded Ranger. Both engines would make an exceptional alternative for the light truck. However, right now, the twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 has our attention. The existing 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder making 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque is plenty for the Ranger. However, plenty in truck terms indicates adequate. The alternative of more power is constantly welcome, and the present 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 engine Ford currently uses in the F-150 makes 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. Power figures either around that or higher is a yummy idea.
The existing Ranger is revealing its age in a competitive field right now, so the reported significantly upgraded bodywork and powertrains would be exactly what the medical professional ordered. Car explains the gas V6 Ranger would become the most effective standard dual-cab truck available in Australia. However, it is probably being developed with the United States market, specifically in mind. The 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine is probably more geared towards the Aussies, but we hope it also makes it the US.
It’s likewise worth keeping in mind the Ranger reboot might offer Ford the ideal opportunity to bring the Ranger Raptor here to its natural house.
