Anticipation for the new Ford Ranger in the United States is building, and we finally have more information about it! We might not have to wait much longer to get behind the wheel. See when the 2024 Ford Ranger will enter production.

When can you buy a 2024 Ford Ranger?

You might be able to buy the 2024 Ford Ranger in the early summer or fall of 2023. This estimation is based on the fact that the 2024 Ranger is slated to enter production on July 10, 2023, at the Michigan Assembly plant. 

Motor1 shared that if this is the case, then the Ranger should be available by the end of July or shortly after. This is when it could enter the OK-to-Buy (OKTB) status. Also, it should reach customers and dealerships in August or September. 

That’s assuming that everything stays on track and goes according to plan. We’ve already seen the Ford Bronco and Ford Maverick roll out with plenty of delays and product shortages. Some customers have been waiting on their Maverick and Brono orders for over a year. 

Other sources suggest the new Ranger could enter production in May. Production of the 2023 Ranger will end in April, so the plant can prepare for the new model. 

But on a positive note, the 2024 Ranger was recently spotted. It was heavily covered in camouflage and being tested. This may indicate that it’s almost production ready. 

Will the 2024 Ranger be redesigned? 

Yes, the 2024 Ford Ranger will be totally redesigned. It will kick off a new Ranger generation in the United States. The new Ranger is currently available in other countries, such as Australia. However, the American one will have a few key differences. 

For example, the American Ford Ranger is expected to match the Ford Maverick. It could have similar C-shaped LED headlights with two chrome bars that span the witch of the grille. The taillights may have a rectangular shape to match the Maverick too. 

The Ranger may be powered by the current 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. It provides a solid amount of power and helps the Ranger tow up to 7,500 lbs. But the 2024 Ranger could tow more. 

Also, the 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor is confirmed for the United States. It could feature a beefier twin-turbocharged V6 engine like the Ford Bronco Raptor. It cranks out 418 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. 

Will the 2024 Ranger be more comfortable?

Yes, the 2024 Ford Ranger is expected to have a variety of suspension upgrades, such as upgraded shock absorbers, to deliver a smoother ride over the pavement. A suspension lift and other upgrades could provide off-roading upgrades. 

Also, the interior will feature a new layout. It will be crafted with higher-quality materials for a more premium feeling. We hope that the backseat gets a little more space. 

Some rumors suggest that the 2024 Ranger will have new storage solutions, such as cubbies to take advantage of. 

We can expect the Ranger to have a new 12.1-inch infotainment screen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Plus, the new zone lightning feature could light up work or camping sites once the truck has been parked. 

We’re finally entering the final countdown. More information about the 2024 Ford Ranger could emerge any day now as it inches closer to production.
