Ford Ranger 2020 specs confirmed: Equipment upgrades across ute line-up

The updated Ford Ranger will launch in December.

Ford Australia will update its Ranger pick-up in December, with a boost to standard and optional equipment across the entire range.

The base XL and mid-level XLS grades will include a standard 8.0-inch touchscreen with Ford’s Sync3 software, which brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

An additional USB port will also be added to the rear-view mirror to support dash cameras.

XLT and Wildtrak variants, as well as the range-topping Raptor, gain new bi-LED headlights, which Ford says provides 17 per cent greater lighting penetration on the road ahead.

New machine-finished 18-inch alloys join the 2020 line-up. New machine-finished 18-inch alloys join the 2020 line-up.

The new Wildtrak also benefits from machine-finished 18-inch alloys and a power roller shutter which can be operated via the key fob. 

A unique Ford Performance Blue colourway will replace the current Blue Lightning paint for the Ranger Raptor, although the latter will remain available across the rest of the Ranger line-up.

As a $500 option, the 2020 Ranger XL variants can be equipped with a new heavy duty suspension system for improved ride and handling characteristics. 

The upgraded suspension package includes thicker rear springs with revised spring rates, new front and rear dampers, Bridgestone A/S tyres for 4x2 units (already standard on 4x4 XL), and a unique ABS and ESC calibration.

Ranger Wildtrak variants gain a power roller shutter. Ranger Wildtrak variants gain a power roller shutter.

Pricing for the 2020 model has yet to be confirmed, however, CarsGuide anticipates some pricing adjustments to be revealed closer to market launch.

For reference, the current 30-variant Ranger line-up opens with the 4x2 XL single-cab, which is priced from $28,340 plus on-road costs. 

The entry-level 4x4 Ranger is priced from $42,240, and the range is topped by the Raptor performance dual-cab at $75,990.

“Feedback from Australian and New Zealand customers has driven upgrades across the Ranger line-up,” explained Ford Australia president and CEO Kay Hart.

“From heavy duty suspension in the XL, to a remote control powered roller-shutter on Wildtrak, and new Bi-LED projector headlights on the XLT, Wildtrak and Ranger Raptor,” 

“Customers also told us they want the convenience of a windshield mounted USB to power accessories, so we will now make this available across the Ranger line-up.”
