The upcoming 2023 Ford Ranger PHEV prototype has been seen on the street, having the same appearance as the regular variant. However, the spotted mid-size pickup truck is disguised well, and it’s impossible to identify what exactly has been updated. In general, we noted the new truck is roughly the same as the regular one, sporting the same front fascia.
Blue Oval automaker said that every new model offered in Europe would have a plug-in hybrid option by 2024. We’ve also heard that the new Ranger would combine a turbo-four 2.3-liter gasoline engine with a single electric motor. Thanks to this arrangement, the Ranger PHEV will produce more power and it will also provide amazing fuel efficiency.
2023 Ranger PHEV Specs
According to several reliable reports, the new 2023 Ford Ranger PHEV will arrive with a plug-in hybrid technology that hasn’t been utilized previously on any model in Ford`s range. The engine may combine turbocharged 2.3-liter gasoline with an electric motor. This arrangement will generate about 362 horsepower and 501 lb-ft of torque.
If those output statistics prove out to be true, the 2023 Ranger PHEV will be significantly stronger than the Raptor version. Still, we are waiting for the Blue Oval to reveal more details regarding its Ranger PHEV mid-size pickup truck.
The cabin of the approaching 2023 Ford Ranger PHEV model is likely to be more contemporary and comfortable compared to the conventional form. Unfortunately, at this moment, there are a couple of exterior photos, but neither are inside the cabin. From what we learned, the maker will certainly make the interior more pleasant, adding more quality materials and the latest advanced technology.
We also may expect the new version of the infotainment system and more standard features. The base XL trim level has an 8.0-inch touchscreen with the newest phone integrations, satellite radio, Wi-Fi hotspot, and a pretty decent four-speaker sound system.
Dimensionally, the impending 2023 Ford Ranger PHEV looks the same as the conventional model. As for aesthetics, it reminds us of a touch of the Ford Maverick model. Overall, the new Ranger should also have a more unique look, and as we can see, it will maintain the form of the same headlamps as the regular model.
The improved suspension components are also evident below the camouflage, and many assume that the spotted truck is an FX4 version or some other off-road trim or package such as a Tremor. As for the platform, the Ford Ranger PHEV will be most likely to employ the new one as well as the forthcoming Everest SUV. We are hoping to see a new batch of spy photos in the coming months.
2023 Ford Ranger PHEV Release Date, Price
The all-new 2023 Ford Ranger PHEV will surely go on sale at some point next year. Most likely, the mid-size truck will hit the dealerships in the late summer of 2022. The price is not available yet, but the PHEV variant will surely cost around $5,000 above the regular mid-size Ranger with the gasoline engine.
