2023 Ford Ranger Order Banks To Open Up Next Month

There weren’t many changes to the Ford Ranger for the 2022 model year, just a few minor alterations to set it apart from previous iterations. While they weren’t groundbreaking, there were some new exterior colors added to the lineup,  including Avalanche and Hot Pepper Red. The unique Splash package also premiered and serves as a throwback to the style of the 1990s, adding loud and vibrant graphics to the pickup. That being said, the 2023 Ford Ranger is on its way, and Ford Authority recently learned when the order banks for the new model year will open.

According to sources familiar with the matter, order banks for the 2023 Ford Ranger will open on July 18th, 2022 while production of the 2023 Ranger is expected to kick off on October 10th, 2022 at Ford’s Michigan Assembly plant. Of course, these dates are not set in stone and are subject to change.

The 2023 model year marks the final for the Ford Ranger’s current generation, as the next-generation model on the horizon, having already debuted in global markets.  Additionally, the next-gen Ranger will kick off a planned eight-year production run before being retired, indicating that the pickup will stick around for a while. Production of this model will follow right on the heels of production for the 2023 model year, and will kick off in May 2023. The 2023 Ford Ranger is expected retain the Ford 2.3L I4 EcoBoost as the base powerplant, capable of 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque in its current form, and the lone engine option available in the U.S. market.

Among other things, the next gen pickup will likely no longer have a traditional owner’s manual included, ditching the paper copy for a digitalized version. Instead of flipping open a book, all information contained within can be accessed by the SYNC 4A touchscreen stationed in the center stack on international models. The North American market will also get the Ranger Raptor too, a first for the region, as confirmed by Ford CEO Jim Farley.

    When will the order bank open for the 2023 Bronco?

  2. Eric

    I am a bit confused on this one. So order banks for a 2023 model that are the final year of the previous gen are opening next month? But production for the new generation begins in May 2023? So do we have any indication of when the next gen ranger order banks open up? This would make the Next gen ranger a 2024 model right?

      That would seem to make the most sense since they probably won’t start delivery of the next gen to customers until the fall of ’23.

    I heard over seas is getting the new f150 looking next generation ranger for 2023 so i believe United states are stuck with the current model for 1 more year

    1. blksn8k

      I hope it’s cool under that rock.

    The 2023 Bronco opens up Aug 15th

    Why is it taking a year to get a TCM (transmission control module) for a 2016 Fiesta? What is a person suppose to do for a year without their car? No loaners and a rental is thousands of dollars although Ford will reimburse. It is under warranty.

      You have to go to an after market supplier such as Rock Auto.. Supply constraints are playing havoc with everything automotive…

  6. Mitchell

    Yeah sure how about filling the 2022 orders first….13 months and counting still waiting for my first edition hybrid

    I give up trying to buy a new truck. It’s like we’re fighting for it while the dealers rake in the money. I guess a few more years won’t kill me

  8. mike keeno

    i have a 2019 ford ranger lariat and i love it i would like to order the 2023 ford ranger everest do you know when i can order the 2023 in the usa. mike

    So, will the turbo 2.7L V-6 only be available in the Raptor?
    I was under the impression that the new Ranger (2024?) will have that powerplant as an option
    (similar to the Bronco) as they switch to the same basic chassis.
    Not a big fan of I-4 turbo motors in trucks.
    Passenger cars and small CUVs? Perfectly fine.
