2024 Ford Ranger Lariat In Oxford White: Real World Photos

The long wait for the North American 2024 Ford Ranger is finally over, as The Blue Oval officially revealed the redesigned lineup less than two weeks ago. Overall, there weren’t many surprises in the announcement, but buyers now know where they stand. Fortunately, it seems like the model retains virtually everything that has made it a desirable pickup around the globe, with some extra goodies thrown in specifically for North America. Our photographers recently spotted a slightly dirty Lariat in a parking lot not too long ago, giving us a more realistic window into how the pickup will look once it gets into customer’s hands later this year.

This particular 2024 Ford Ranger Lariat is largely painted in Oxford White, which means this isn’t packing the FX4 Package or possibly any other package that would alter its appearance. It’s possible that this pickup has an optional Chrome package of some sort, but on Lariat, that typically comes with chrome mirror caps and a chrome front bumper, neither of which are seen here. However, we can see the slightly thicker lower portions of each side mirror from this angle, a clear indication that this pickup has the 360-degree camera. It should be noted that the regular 2023 Ranger Lariat also features some chrome on its front end, even if it lacks an additional cosmetic package, so that is probably the case here as well.

This side view further illustrates that the 2024 Ford Ranger Lariat will not significantly depart from its predecessor, as it also boasts body-color door handles, painted side mirror caps, and LED fog lamps, just like the outgoing model. While we don’t know what powertrain this example features, there are two options on tap for the new generation: the carryover Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost, or the 2.7L V6 EcoBoost, with the latter being an all-new addition to the XLT and Lariat lineups. Output is projected at a healthy 315 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are mated to the 10-speed automatic transmission.

Notable additions to the 2024 Ford Ranger lineup include rear bumper steps (unfortunately not featured here), class-exclusive Active Park Assist 2.0 and Pro Trailer Backup Assist, along with Trailer Reverse Guidance too. The tailgate also can double as a workbench due to its integrated ruler and camp pockets. We’ll know exactly how the new lineup is positioned when the order banks open up at the end of next week.

We’ll have plenty more on the redesigned Ranger soon, so subscribe to Ford Authority for the latest Ford Ranger news, and for continuous Ford news updates.

    I thought that was a Maverick, at first.

      Pictures are deceiving. It’s far larger. Far more capable! The Maverick is a great truck though in its own right.

    They noted incorrectly the gen2 – 2.7L V6 GTDI will have 330hp . The sweet spot i think is proven base gen2- 2.3L GTDI w/ 300hp. That’s plenty for 80% of ppl. My ’19 Ranger XLT FX4 has been impeccable so far & proven to be a tough, comfortable, high tech truck. It had 270hp. That was plenty w/heavy duty 10spd .

    I also thought this was a Maverick and this makes the Ranger far too boring compared to the new competition from Gm and Toyota. Ford has lost its creativity in design.

      If I was in the market for a “mid-size” truck I would likely choose this, as I do tend to like Ford trucks more and it has the V6 option whereas competitors don’t. But I agree that Ford has lost some mojo in recent years, including strange naming choices. This should have been named the F-100 and the Maverick named the Ranger.

      Must agree, the design is soft compared to the new ‘23 Colorado/Canyon and ‘24 Tacoma which look modern and excellent, Gladiator of course has bold looks too if a bit polarizing. I did confirm though, 48.2″ between the wheel arches. That and the 2.7 V6 are enough to move the new Ranger to the top of my list.

    Would look so much better with a separate bumper similar to the raptor. Usually new releases will grow on me but this is a point of contention with the front end design for me. Looks cheap and uninteresting. Easy fix for Ford redo the front and while at it ditch the bed steps shown on other Ranger release pics.

      Agree, I don’t love this front-end/grill design, same with the Maverick.

    Looks so bland and out of date already compared to the competition. Utility contractors are going to love these.

    What are they thinking with only 18 gallon tank? Ranger should have about 21 gallons.
