Rumored Next-Gen Ford Ranger Plug-In Hybrid

2020 Ford Ranger | Tropical Ford in Orlando, FL

Many US automakers are gearing up to drastically increase the number of fuel-efficient vehicles on the road in the coming years, and Ford is no exception. According to recent rumors swirling throughout the Australian blogosphere, Ford is expected to revolutionize its pickup lineup by introducing a plug-in hybrid model.

CarExpert, an Australian automotive publication, reported in May 2020 that the upcoming next-generation Ford Ranger will likely launch for the 2022 model year with a four-cylinder 2.3-liter plug-in hybrid engine. The powertrain is expected to achieve an impressive fuel efficiency rating while delivering up to 362 horsepower and 502 lb-ft of torque.

Unfortunately, it might be too soon to buy a tacky “My Truck Gets Better MPG Than Your Sedan” bumper sticker. Recent rumors from the stateside publication Car and Driverregarding a plug-in hybrid model of the beloved Ford F-150 were retracted quickly, suggesting that Ford might not be pursuing a more eco-conscious pickup lineup after all. Notably, CarExpert was launched just two months before its May 2020 prediction of a 2022 Ranger PHEV, making it impossible to truly nail down the publication’s track record.

Even if the PHEV version of the next-gen Ranger does make it to Australia, that doesn’t necessarily mean it will be available at US dealerships. However, we boast a wide variety of fuel-efficient models like the Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid alongside the rugged and capable gas-powered Ranger.
