What Is the 2023 Ford Ranger?

The Ford Ranger is a mid-size pickup truck that seats up to five and competes with the Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier and Chevrolet Colorado. Unlike many pickups on the market, the Ranger is offered with only one engine: a 270-horsepower, turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder that works with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear- and four-wheel-drive versions are available, and the Ranger is offered in extended- and crew-cab form.

What’s New on the 2023 Ford Ranger?

A redesigned Ford Ranger is expected to debut in the North American market for the 2024 model year, so updates to the 2023 Ranger are limited to a couple of new paint colors and a Splash Jungle Edition appearance package.

Ranger XLT FX4

I've owned a '19 Ranger XLT FX4 super crew for 4yrs / 46k mis. Its been impeccable in this time. The mpgs have even improved as the truck gained mileage. It averages 21mpg city/ 24hwy. I've towed my 04 Mustang SVT Cobra "terminator" many times. Truck handles it w/ease as max tow rating is 7500lbs. The comfort & driving dynamics are best in class as is safety tech / features. So delighted w/ the Ranger ive ordered a '23 Ranger XLT Tremor edition. Really like the styling of this Gen Ranger & wanted the best version (Tremor) before an all new '24 Ranger is released fall '23. When shopping the midsized truck class be sure to test drive different models as they all have there own unique characteristics. None are bad ..but the Ranger just has more to offer. The excellent Gen2 TGDI Ecoboost powertrain is best in class. As all reviews have stated. This is absolutely true. Will not be selling our '19 Ranger XLT FX4 whenever the '23 Ranger Tremor arrives. Midsized trucks nowadays are the perfect size for 80% of personal truck buyers. Even off rd they are easier to navigate vs a full sized 1/2 ton truck or large SUV.
