      Ford Philippines is launching the much-awaited next-generation Ford Ranger, the most intelligent, versatile, and capable Ranger ever. The next-gen Ranger features improved capability and comfort, advanced technologies, and smart connectivity that deliver new and improved experiences to pick up customers.

      Alongside the local launch, Ford Philippines is announcing that the next-gen Ranger will come with a 5-year warranty to enhance the ownership experience. The extended warranty offering will cover the next-gen Ranger for up to 5 years or the total mileage of up to 150,000 kilometers, whichever comes first.

      "We recognize that vehicle ownership is an important purchase consideration for our customers. That's why we are launching the next-gen Ranger with a longer warranty coverage to provide our customers with added protection and peace of mind. This is part of our commitment to enhancing the Ford ownership experience as we continue to treat our customers like family," shares Michael Breen, managing director, Ford Philippines.

      New Look, New Capabilities
      Visually, the next-generation Ranger is bold and confident, with a purposeful exterior that shares Ford's global truck design DNA. The design features a defined new grille and signature C-clamp headlight treatment at the front, while a subtle shoulder line down the sides incorporates a new wheel-arches design that gives Ranger a sure-footed stance. In addition, for the first time, the next-gen Ranger is equipped with matrix LED headlights with an Adaptive Front Lighting System for the Wildtrak 4x4 variant. Consistent with the look in front, the LED taillamps clamp onto the new tailgate, now proudly stamped with the RANGER badge.

      Beneath the new bodywork is an upgraded chassis riding on a wheelbase 50mm longer and a track 50mm wider than the previous Ranger. In addition, the next-gen Ranger has a more dramatic, sculpted appearance with new fenders and larger wheel arches.

      The next-gen Ranger incorporates several intuitive designs, making the pickup truck more user-friendly for any lifestyle. A rear box step makes accessing the cargo area more accessible and safer. Clamp pockets allow users to attach timber or tools to the tailgate workbench, which can also be concealed with spring-loaded caps when not in use.

      The Wildtrak model's roof rails create even more space for oversized cargo. For easier tailgate operations, the next-generation Ranger has the Tailgate Lift Assist–enabling users to close the tailgate with just a light touch. Cargo organizing includes a new load box and tailgate protective capping for more grip and safety.

      Redesigned Interior and Enhanced Connectivity
      Inside, the next-gen Ranger is a step up from its previous iterations, using premium soft-touch materials to go with a roomy cabin. At the heart of the Ranger's connective experience is the large 10-inch or best-in-class 12-inch touchscreen in the center stack. It complements the fully digital instrument panel and is loaded with Ford's latest SYNC® 4A with wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto capability.

      The next-gen Ranger is equipped with a 360-degree camera to make crossing and parking a breeze in tight urban spaces. The design team also created clever storage and useful features for owners, such as a digital owner's manual, a new climate system, and wireless charging. In addition, the door pockets are designed to carry more, the wide dash conceals an upper glovebox, and there are storage bins under and behind the rear seats.

      Improved Ride and Handling
      Ford engineers focused on the fundamentals to develop the ride and handling expected of a truck customer's use for a wide range of work, family, and play. First, they made improvements to the chassis and suspension. They moved the front wheels forward by 50mm for a better approach angle and outboard for better off-road articulation, improving the off-roading experience. They also shifted the rear suspension dampers outboard of the frame rails to give drivers and passengers a better ride both on- and off-road, whether carrying heavy cargo for work or just taking the family out for dinner.

      Reliable Drivetrain and Drive Modes
      The next-gen Ranger gives customers a choice of engines to suit their needs and lifestyles.

      The 2.0L Bi-Turbo mated with a 10-speed automatic transmission is available on the 4x4 Wildtrak variant, capable of 210PS of maximum power and 500Nm of maximum torque. In contrast, the 2.0L Single Turbo mated with a 6-speed automatic or manual transmission is available for the other Ranger variants, capable of 170PS of maximum power and 405Nm of maximum torque.

      The next-gen Ford pickup also allows customers to explore new horizons through selectable drive modes: Normal, Eco, Tow Haul, Slippery, Mud/Ruts, and Sand. These drive modes allow the Ranger to tackle any destination and deliver optimized performance for different surfaces, road conditions, and vehicle usage.

      Smarter and Safer Than Ever
      Safety remains at the core of the next-gen Ranger. Its suite of smart driver-assist technologies includes Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering, Lane Keeping System with Road Edge Detection, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, and Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Aid & Lane Departure Warning, Pre-Collision Assist with Intersection, among others. It also comes with up to seven (7) airbags, providing exceptional protection for everyone inside the vehicle.

      The next-gen Ranger also has an Intelligent Oil Life Monitor (IOLM). This brilliant new feature tells the owner when to have an oil change based on actual engine data, operating conditions, and owner driving habits.

      "With a bold look and design, premium interior enhanced ride comfort, and outstanding new capabilities, the next-gen Ranger is set to define the pickup truck segment in the country again. We're truly excited to offer this amazing vehicle to our customers whose needs and lifestyles cut across work, play, and family," adds Breen.
