2024 Ford Ranger Colors, Interior, Changes – The 2024 Ford Ranger is as close as Michigan to producing a Swiss Army knife. Its pickup bed and off-road accessories transform it from a daily driver into an open-air adventure toolkit. The Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier, and Honda Ridgeline are competitors. The 2024 Ford Ranger, available in XL, XLT, and Lariat trims with the Splash, Tremor, and FX4 packages, achieves a TCC Rating of 5.3 out of 10, primarily owing to the XL’s lack of features and poor safety ratings.
The Ranger conforms to the outline of a traditional pickup with softer sculpting and rounded corners; it stands out in contrast to the angular contours of contemporary F-Series pickups. We haven’t seen this much-painted plastic and gritty black trim in a while, which shows how old the Ranger is. A new version is coming, which will use the same running gear as the new Bronco.
2024 Ford Ranger Redesign
There are three trim grades and two body variants available for the Ranger. The 2-door extended cab is known as the “SuperCab,” while the 4-door crew cab is known as the “SuperCrew.” Extended cabs have two doors and a six-foot bed, whereas crew cabs have four doors and a five-foot bed. The entry-level LX sports black plastic bumpers, wheel arches, door handles, mirrors, grille, and black steel wheels measuring 16 inches. The XLT adds bumpers, wheel arches in body color, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The top-of-the-line Lariat has LED lights; a grille made just for that model, mirrors that match the body color, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The standard XL Super Cab is available in eight colors. Race Red, Hot Pepper Red (needs the STX Appearance package), Velocity Blue, Iconic Silver, Carbonized Gray, Cactus Gray (requires the STX Appearance package), Oxford White, and Shadow Black are the available colors. Cyber Orange is added to the mid-range XLT, although access to this color requires an additional package. However, Hot Pepper Red and Cactus Gray do not need different containers at this level. The Lariat and XLT share the same color pallet.
The 2024 Ford Ranger SuperCrew will retain its spaciousness and solid and comfortable seats. The design is anticipated to remain the same, with a clean dashboard, ample front row seating, and excellent visibility. The two small half-doors provide access to the inside for five passengers, although, for longer journeys, four passengers will be more comfortable. The interior can be upgraded from fabric seats to genuine leather surfaces. The optional XLT Mid Package will add interior items such as an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, and a 110V AC power outlet to the XLT specification. The XLT High Package will have power-adjustable and heated front seats, a remote start, and other amenities. Standard on the Lariat High Package will be the Technology Package, premium sound system, ambient interior lighting, and dual-zone climate control.
The Toyota Tacoma has tiny rear seats, whereas the 2024 Ford Ranger Crew Cab is exceptionally spacious and roomy. The Colorado and GMC Canyon are both roomy, but the GMC Canyon’s Denali model reveals extravagance. The Ranger’s essential load capacity of 43.3 cu ft is the highest among them, followed by the GM twins and Toyota Tacoma. Standard on the 2024 Ford Ranger should be an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with the SYNC 3 interface. The SYNC interface is renowned for its user-friendliness and menu accessibility. FordPass Connect with a 4G LTE WiFi hotspot, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM, Applink, and Bluetooth are all standard.
The 2024 Ford Ranger features a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Standard equipment is a 10-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive; a four-wheel drive is optional. This engine performs smoothly and generates most of its torque at lower rpm, allowing the Ranger to accelerate confidently when towing or hauling. The sprint from 0-60 mph takes around seven seconds. The transmission usually shifts up smoothly and quickly, but it tends to hesitate when shifting down, which makes the truck’s impressive passing power less unique.
Body-on-frame vehicles are not typically recognized for their road manners. However, the Ford Ranger steers better than other vehicles. The Ranger’s handling is responsive and adequately weighted, and it is relatively simple to operate and park in tight spaces. Its stiff suspension gives a solid but comfortable ride in most road conditions while minimizing body lean and sway during turns. However, larger road imperfections can cause the vehicle to jiggle and shake. The brakes have the excellent stopping capability. Overall, the Ranger’s ride quality and handling are satisfactory. The EPA estimates that the Ford Ranger achieves 21 city mpg and 26 highway mpg, which is respectable for a compact pickup truck. When equipped with a four-wheel drive, the fuel economy drops to 20/24 mpg city/highway and 19 mpg city/highway for cars fitted with the Tremor package.
