North America is still waiting for the next-generation Ford Ranger to enter our market while the rest of the world has been enjoying the new midsize truck. However, that’s about to change, as the 2023 Ford Ranger production will begin in just a few months. That being said, AutoForecast Solutions has released its predictions, and the generation after the one arriving in May of this year will make its way to the market in 2029.

2029 Ford Ranger Forecast: Details

Going off the spreadsheet, we can see that the next-gen Ford Ranger will continue to utilize the T6 architecture, which the 2023 Ranger also uses. Production will likely begin in August of 2029, and we could see a production run into 2037, which is far out. We can also expect the Ford Ranger to have an electric variant outside hybridization. That’s not surprising, as Ford is pushing towards more emission-free vehicles at the behest of regulators and manufactured social pressures.

The 2029 Ford Ranger BEV is expected to ride on a new Ford TE1 architecture, the same as the next-generation F-150 Lighting. While the ICE-powered 2029 Ford Ranger will be manufactured at the Michigan Assembly plant along with its Bronco counterpart. The electric Ranger will be produced at Blue Oval City alongside the Lightning and Bronco EV. According to the chart, we can see that the BEV version will begin production on the same day as the ICE.

The T6 architecture utilized by the Ford Bronco and Ford Ranger focuses on versatility and adaptation. As it’s found in an assortment of markets worldwide, Ford needed to ensure they could adjust the truck for specific market needs, as those needs changed over the decade. That said, customers looking to get their hands on a 2023 Ford Ranger but also have concerns about fuel efficiency can expect to see a hybrid-powered trim by next year, 2024.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Ford Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
