Australian pricing for the 2023 Ford Ranger and the performance Ranger Raptor have been announced ahead of their arrival in June 2022. Priced from $35,930 plus on-road costs, the new Ranger will offer six spec levels, three bodystyles and four different engine choices in its attempt to further take over the ute market in Australia against products like the Toyota HiLux, Isuzu D-Max and Mazda BT-50.

“We’ve really packed a lot into the Next-Generation Ranger to inspire owners to do more of what they love to do, with features that encourage them to explore new horizons,” said Gary Boes, Ford’s Enterprise Product Line Management director, Global Trucks. 

“We’re truck owners too, and this passion for the Ranger lifestyle translates into a passion for the product,” Boes added. “Ultimately, we want our customers’ experience with the pick-up to enable and enhance their lifestyles.”

The 2023 Ford Ranger will be available with four different drivetrains. The entry-level XL is available with a 125kW/405Nm 2.0-litre single-turbo four-cylinder diesel engine, as well as the 157kW/500Nm twin-turbo 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that’s used in the current Ranger – that engine is available on the XLS, XLT, Sport and Wildtrak as well.

On the XLT, Sport and Wildtrak is an optional 184kW/600Nm 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel engine, while the Raptor is available exclusively with a 292kW/583Nm 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged petrol V6 engine. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard on the single-turbo diesel while all other engines are equipped with a 10-speed auto as standard with no manuals this time.
