2023 Ford Ranger Manual Transmission Prices, Design And Interior – Ford debuted the all-new generation in the 2023 Ford Ranger Manual Transmission. The all-new Ranger has completely transformed from your ground up & has become more aggressive & much bolder.
With the latest unveiling, one can easily spot that major changes have taken place for the development in the next-generation Ranger.
The design language from the pick-up now comes even more closer to the latest Ford F-150, which can be considered a good improvement.
In 2019 Ford re-introduced the Ford Ranger based on a modified version of the Ford Ranger that had been available in Australia since 2011.
The Australian model is due for an update and Ford Australia has recently published photos of the new design. The new design is expected to make its way to North America for the 2023 model year.
Generally the biggest visual difference between the Australia model and the North American model is the use of steel bumpers. And then there’s the whole steering wheel being changed from your wrong side in the truck.
A new bold grille design features the signature Ford C-clamp headlights, seen across the Ford truck line.
The wheel arches and a well-defined shoulder line serve to give the new design a clear work-like appearance.
Customer feedback was key in this area, according to chief designer Max Tran. “Customers told us the Ranger needs to look tough and needs to inspire confidence,” said Tran, adding.
“They were very clear in what Ranger should be, both inside the way it looks, and the way it makes them feel.”
2023 Ford Ranger Manual Transmission Specs
The new 2023 Ford Ranger looks much more powerful & menacing than the outgoing Ford Ranger. After conducting several interviews with their loyal clientele & extensive research.
Ford has also decided to make some new changes to the engine options available with the new 2023 Ford Ranger.
However, for the U.S. spec, the standard engine for the 2023 Ford Ranger Manual Transmission remains the same, i.e. a 2.3L Turbocharged EcoBoost I-4 with 270 hp & 310 lb-ft of torque.
On the other hand, the 2023 Ford Ranger will be made available with a choice of three different engines for markets outside the U.S.: a 3.0L V6 Turbodiesel, a 2.0L I-4 Turbodiesel, and a 2.0L I-4 Bi-Turbo Diesel.
A 6-Speed manual transmission will also be made available for other global markets, while the U.S. spec will most probably have to continue with the standard 10-speed automatic transmission.
However, for the U.S. market, the 2023 Ford Ranger Manual Transmission is expected to get a more tuned version of 2.7L Twin-Turbo V6, also found in the 2022 Ford Bronco.
The big news comes in the form from the powertrains you can order for the new Ranger. While the old Ranger was available with the 2.3-liter Ecoboost in the U.S.
And two diesel options for the rest from the world, you can now get a choice of three different diesel engines, including the top-spec 3-liter V6 turbodiesel and a single and twin-turbo variant from the 2-liter inline four. It doesn’t seem like the U.S.
Market will get these diesel options, but we’ll have to wait and see. All engines will be mated to either an updated 10-speed automatic, or the tried-and-true 6-speed manual. Obviously engine and transmission combos will depend on the market.
