Ford may no longer manufacture vehicles in Brazil, but it has rapidly expanded its lineup in that South American country over the past couple of years, with a grand total of 10 new models set to launch there this year. The automaker already announced the arrival of the Ford Maverick, Maverick Hybrid, Ford Transit, E-Transit, Ford Mustang Mach-E, and the Ford F-150 in Lariat and Platinum trims, along with the Transit chassis cab and an automatic transmission-equipped Transit. Now, the all-new, next-generation Ford Ranger has joined this quickly expanding list of products, too.
Sales for the new Ford Ranger in Brazil are set to begin next week, on June 22nd for exiting Blue Oval customers, while everyone else can purchase the mid-size hauler a few days later, on June 26th. As has been the case with some other recent models, Brazilian customers interested in buying a new Ranger can do so online with a deposit, with deliveries expected to begin 30-60 days after their order is placed.
Ranger customers in Brazil will be limited a bit in terms of what they can order at the moment, however, as just one powertrain is available – the turbocharged Ford 3.0L V6 Power Stroke diesel, which is coupled with four-wheel drive. Additional engine options and configurations will follow, but otherwise, customers can choose from a variety of features right now.
That includes standard 18-inch or optional 20-inch wheels, along with the 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster and 12-inch center stack infotainment screen running Sync 4. Otherwise, the Brazilian Ranger is much like its international counterparts, with brand new styling inside and out, along with a host of revisions to its frame, increased bed space, and a variety of upgrades over the outgoing model.
