The redesigned 2024 Ford Ranger doubles down on comfort, capability, refinement and the distinct non-compactness of the truck that reintroduced the Ranger to the U.S. for the 2019 model year. Ford has now released pricing and feature availability for the 2024 model; the base XL trim has a starting price of $34,160 (all prices include a $1,595 destination charge).

Gone is the extended-cab configuration (SuperCab in Ford speak), so the four-door SuperCrew is the only cab offered on the 2024 Ranger, which only pairs with a 5-foot box. The 2024 Ranger will come in XL, XLT and Lariat trims.
What You Get in the XL
The basic XL gets flat-folding rear seats, keyless entry, an 8-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10-inch infotainment screen with Sync 4A, power side mirrors and automatic high-beam headlights. For the time being, all Ranger XLs will be fitted with the STX Appearance Package, which adds STX graphics and badges, LED headlights, 17-inch wheels, a damped tailgate and upgraded cloth seats. The standard powertrain is a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder making 270 horsepower and 310 pounds-feet of torque.
What You Get in the XLT
Starting at $37,100, the XLT builds on the XL with dark-gray front and rear bumpers, lower-body molding, grille and wheels. The XLT’s foglamps get upgraded to LEDs, and the bed gets upgraded with LED lighting and a 120-volt outlet. An improved rearview camera, power-folding mirrors, and reverse parking aids with automatic braking ease parking. Inside, a leather-wrapped shifter, wireless charging pad and another 120-volt outlet are added. Remote start is also standard on the XLT.
What You Get in the Lariat
If the XLT is a tepid step up from the XL, the Lariat is a moonshot. Starting at $45,120, the Lariat’s instrument cluster and infotainment screen (with navigation) both measure 12 inches; the front seats are power-adjustable; the steering wheel is heated; and LED headlights and rain-sensing wipers aid visibility. The Lariat also gets a power-sliding rear window and a whole load of safety tech, including adaptive cruise with lane centering, stop and go and speed-limit recognition, as well as front parking sensors, a 360-degree camera and Ford’s Active Park Assist system, which steers the truck into parallel parking spots while the driver handles shifting and works the pedals. Rear-wheel-drive Rangers get Enhanced Active Park Assist, which helps drivers exit a tight parallel parking spot or back into a perpendicular one. The Lariat also comes with a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system and push-button start.
What You Get in the Raptor
All of the luxury equipment from the Lariat is standard on the Raptor. But of course, that stuff is all secondary to the Raptor’s mission of gliding over terrain that would have lesser trucks weeping various fluids into the ground as the driver waits for rescue. It starts with a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 making an estimated 405 hp and 430 pounds-feet of torque. Power is sent through a 10-speed automatic to a full-time four-wheel-drive system with locking front and rear differentials. Trail Control low-speed off-road cruise control is standard on the 2024 Ranger Raptor.
The Raptor’s burly off-road suspension necessitates flared front and rear fenders, and a unique hood, skid plates, and gray 17-inch wheels wrapped in 33-inch tires complete the look. To help with truck work that’s less fun, the Raptor also gets an integrated trailer brake controller and Ford’s Pro Trailer Backup Assist, which allows the driver to steer the trailer directly with a knob on the dash instead of the usual live-action geometry crapshoot that is backing up with a trailer. From the leather-trimmed heated front seats, occupants can flick six upfitter switches in the overhead console to control whatever aftermarket accessories they desire.

Ford is taking orders for the 2024 Ranger now, and deliveries will begin soon. All except the Raptor come standard with RWD. 4WD costs $3,645 on the XL, $3,985 on the XLT and $3,485 on the Lariat.
