2021 Ford Ranger Spy Shots
Nobody at Ford is saying undoubtedly, but from what we can determine from the prototype snapped in an external Melbourne residential area today is that the crisp styling, overall proportions and even some minute detailing aspects all recommend a very strong and very clear Ford impact.
And not just from the existing T6 Ranger series either, considering that the secret ute’s wide position, bold grille, boxy wheel arches, deep glass location and subtle rear window-line kink consult with an extremely Ford F-Series truck accent.
If the secret ute is from a rival carmaker hellbent on muscling-in on the existing Ranger’s worldwide success, its resemblance to the just-unveiled full-sized 2020 Ford Super Duty F-250 sold Stateside is undoubtedly no coincidence. Examine out how alike the C-shaped LED headlights, six-point grille garnish, and square front foglight real estates are, while the taillights and shape of the chrome back bumpers appear almost identical. Even the spoked alloys are very comparable.
All recommend that either this holds Blue Oval or somebody from another company’s design studios seem to have access to what’s showing up out of Ford HQ in Dearborn. It’s simply regrettable they blacked-out windows avoided the eagle-eyed photographer from snapping pictures of the dashboard and interior. So blacked out are the windows that it might recommend this is a clay-model of the next-gen Ranger on its method to Ford Australia, not a rolling prototype.
Provided Ford’s current fondness for extending tablet-like touchscreens, small steering wheels and big main vents, see inside the cabin might have been the verification we would require to recognize this mystery ute for particular.
If the mystery ute undoubtedly is the next-generation Ranger, then it’s an attractive update on what has remained both a vital and worldwide business success for Ford Australia, gaining a closer visual connection to the top-selling F-Series and underlining the Ranger’s progressively vital function in the North American truck market. The basic shape and proportions likewise bode effectively for the 2022 Volkswagen Amarok that will be based on next Ranger.
On the other hand, if it is a close copy from an unknown carmaker from China or any other part of the world, then hats off to Ford’s worldwide style group for affecting the next lot of mid-sized pickups. In any case, what we see here is a genuine excellent looker.
