2024 Ford Ranger

The Ford Ranger occupies an important niche for folks who need a pickup truck but not necessarily a full-sized one. Following a hiatus after the 2011 model year, the Ranger made a well-anticipated return in 2019. Now for 2024, the Ranger begins its fifth generation with enhanced aesthetics and proportions. Its notable upgrades include a 2-inch wheelbase increase and a 1.5-inch boost in ground clearance, improving the Ranger’s off-road performance. There’s also now an available 2.7-liter V6 engine, but we think the most captivating addition is the high-performance Raptor variant, a first for the U.S. market.

Trim Levels, Powertrains, and Performance

If you’re interested in the redesigned Ranger, you’ll have four trims to choose from: XL, XLT, Lariat, and Raptor. A turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine making 270 hp and 310 lb.-ft. of torque is standard on the first three, although the XLT and Lariat are eligible for Ford’s new turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 (output: 315 hp and 400 lb.-ft. of torque). The powerful Raptor gets the Ford Performance twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6, which produces 405 hp and 430 lb.-ft. of torque. Each powerplant partners with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The XL, XLT, and Lariat have rear-wheel drive by default, but a part-time four-wheel-drive system is available. The Raptor gets an enhanced 4WD system with an electronic two-speed transfer case.

All ‘24 Rangers are configured as the four-door Super Crew with a 5-foot cargo bed. Towing capacity varies, with most trims capable of handling up to 7,500 pounds (the Raptor tops out at 5,510 lb.). The total payload rating is listed as 1,805 pounds (1,711 pounds with 4WD).

Standard Equipment

The base XL’s standard feature list mixes basics such as fabric upholstery with modern conveniences such as remote keyless entry with a remote tailgate lock. It also has manual climate control, an 8-inch digital gauge cluster, LED headlights, halogen fog lights, and power-adjustable side mirrors. The XLT gets upgrades such as LED fog lights, power-folding side mirrors, a manual-sliding rear window with privacy glass and a defroster, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, wireless phone charging, a 120V power outlet, and 400 watts of in-bed power.

The Lariat brings further enhancements such as proximity keyless entry, exterior zone lighting, rain-sensing wipers, heated side mirrors, heating for the leather-upholstered front seats and leather-wrapped steering wheel, push-button ignition, power-adjustable front seats with driver’s position memory, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 12-inch digital gauge cluster, ambient interior lighting, a universal garage door opener, and a power-sliding rear window.

The debuting Raptor shows off a host of off-road upgrades, including a reinforced boxed frame, front and rear tow hooks, heavy-duty bash plates, a Watts-link rear suspension, locking front and rear differentials, FOX racing shocks, and 33-inch all-terrain tires. It also gets exclusive exterior treatments and incorporates many of the upscale features listed for the Lariat.

Advanced Safety Tech

All trim levels of this redesigned Ranger receive a handful of active driving aids: forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and automatic high beams. The XLT and higher trims also get the Ford Co-Pilot360 suite, providing blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and trailer coverage, lane-keeping support, rear parking sensors, reverse brake assist, a digital rearview monitor, and driver attention alert. The Lariat and Raptor add active park assist, front parking sensors, adaptive cruise control with lane centering and speed sign recognition, and a surround-view camera.

Connectivity and Entertainment

Ford stocks the ’24 Ranger with the advanced SYNC 4A infotainment system. In the XL and XLT, that means a 10-inch touchscreen with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, voice recognition, and an audio system with six speakers. The XLT and above are given SiriusXM satellite radio and access to connected navigation. A 12-inch touchscreen is the foundational upgrade in the Lariat and Raptor, which also get integrated navigation, HD Radio, and a booming 10-speaker B&O sound system. All Ranger trims also have access to FordPass Connect, which includes a Wi-Fi hotspot, vehicle monitoring, and emergency assistance.
