2021 Ford Ranger Release Date
2021 Ford Ranger Release Date The Ford F-150 full-size pickup truck is the best selling vehicle in the United States, but when it comes to small-medium-sized trucks, Ford is behind the curve. When Ford withdrew its U.S. ranger in 2011, the medium-sized truck segment was more or less dead. It has been stocked with aging vehicle buyers does not seem to care. But in recent years, new versions of the Chevrolet Colorado (and its Twin GMC Canyon), Honda Ridgeline, and Toyota Tacoma have invigorated the segment. The old Nissan border continues to linger stubbornly as well, and Jeep will launch its highly anticipated gladiator in the 2021 calendar year.
So for the model year 2021, the Ford Ranger is back. Buyers have the choice between two body configurations – SuperCab with a bed of 6.0 feet, and super crew with a bed of 5.0 feet – and three levels of trim: XL, XLT, and Larix. A rear traction base XL SuperCab starts at $25 395, while a fully charged four-wheel drive Lariat super crew Tops $45 000. Dealers are taking orders now, but deliveries don’t start until January.
Even after Ford stopped selling the ranger in the United States, he continued to use the name for trucks sold abroad. The 2021 Ranger is based on the current version of the world market, but Ford says it has been heavily redesigned for North America.
“This [Truck] is based on the Global Ranger platform, but it’s specially designed for the North American market,” Brian Bell, director of Marketing Ranger, said. Major changes include a new frame and suspension configuration, and a specific powertrain for the North American market. The outside style has also changed somewhat.

Ford and other car manufacturers make bold style choices with their larger pickups, but that doesn’t seem to be trickling down to medium sized models. The ranger has a pretty conservative look, but again so make most of the other trucks he rivals against. At least the Ranger’s design is functional. Unlike the Toyota Tacoma, the hood comes down and the front overhang is very short, providing good visibility to the outside, whether off-road or simply by navigating in a parking lot. Unlike the Chevrolet Colorado, the front fascia does not hang as far, making it less likely that the bodywork will be caught on the obstacles.
The interior seems as clear as the outside and is not exactly the last word of sophistication. Even the Top-of-the-Line version lariat seems low rent, despite its leather padding. But it’s a truck, after all. If you want luxury, buy a sedan.
The Ranger is available with a four-door super crew cabin or a SuperCab, with rear half-doors and rear seats required that are only suitable for short trips. As with many other trucks, the four-door cabin is only available with a shorter pickup box, so buyers have to choose between the cabin space and the bed space. Nor will Ford offer a traditional two-door cabin with no rear seats. The interior space is roughly average among the current medium-sized trucks, although the Honda Ridgeline offers much more passenger volume. This is because the Ridgeline is essentially a Honda Pilot crossover with a pickup bed.
The boxes of 5.0 feet and 6.0 feet will adjust to 43.3 cubic feet and 51.8 cubic feet of substance, respectively, according to Ford. Both boxes are 44.8 inches wide in wheelhouses, with a maximum width of 61.4 inches. These figures are comparable to the Toyota Tacoma, Chevrolet Colorado, and Nissan Frontier, and well ahead of the Honda Ridgeline.
