The upcoming 2023 Ford Courier will be available for purchase by the end of 2022. It will not resemble the Ford Courier coupe utility, but it will be aimed more at the American market, with the Ford F-150 truck being available. The Courier, according to rumors, will have a conventional front-wheel-drive setup as well as good fuel economy.
However, it is unclear whether this little pickup truck will be marketed with a different name. According to information we have, the name “Ford Ranchero.” Is another possibility. The Courier is unmistakably on his way, and here’s everything you need to know about it.
EcoBoost-Powered Ford Courier
The brand-new 2023 Ford Courier will come equipped with a 1.5-liter, three-cylinder engine. This small pickup will also be available with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine as an option. The Ford Escape model already comes with the same unit.
This version is capable of producing 180 horsepower. However, the optional engine may produce 250 horsepower. We’re still waiting for official word, as well as transmission and fuel economy ratings, as well as towing capability. The Courier will most likely be the first model to use two well-known EcoBoost gasoline engines.
At this moment, we don’t know which cab setups will be on offer once the 2023 Ford Courier arrives. Many people believe that the new version will be available in both single-cab and double-cab configurations. The double-cab model will allow two adults to sit in each row. The cabin will be surprisingly modern and durable. The new Hyundai Santa Cruz is projected to be roughly the same size and shape as the upcoming Courier.
On the other hand, Ford revealed the compact Maverick pickup, a model that will directly rival Santa Cruz pickup. As for the Maverick, it will offer a clean dashboard with an SYNC4 infotainment system. This model will be affordable, so premium interior features will be optional in the entry-level variants. Still, the upper trim levels should provide more luxury and more standard equipment.
What About Exterior Design?
The 2023 Ford Maverick will sit on a platform that supports the FWD system. It will slot below the mid-size Ranger truck, but it will fill in the holes left by the Fiesta and Focus cars. Its styling should be less dramatic, but it will be a modern and recognizable exterior design for sure. It will resemble a cross between Bronco SUV and a Ranger pickup truck.
We may anticipate a chunky front end and truck-like shapes. This marks the introduction of a smaller unibody truck with a more aggressive design. The Courier model will be recognizable, with a boxier body and distinct exterior color palette. We anticipate a handful of trim levels and probably one sportier variant.
2023 Ford Courier Price and Release Date
The price of the new 2023 Ford Courier will probably start at around $20,000 or slightly above that. The compact pickup truck will be manufactured in Mexico, although it could arrive under a different name. The “Ford Ranchero” is one of the rumored names. The sales will reportedly begin in the last quarter of 2022.
