Is there any vehicle in the industry that’s more American than a Ford truck? Likely not, especially when you look at road warriors like the 2022 Ford Ranger. As the smallest truck in Ford’s fleet, the Ranger proves that size doesn’t discount capability. Instead, the Ranger uses its size to its advantage and makes for an agile truck that’s plenty powerful, capable, versatile, and easy to maneuver in any condition.
Ideal for drivers who don’t need a full-size warrior like the F-150, the 2022 Ranger also comes with plenty of options for customization. For 2022, Ford gives drivers an absolute blast from the past with the Splash Package that’s available on the XLT and Lariat trims. The package transforms the Ranger into a 1990s-era truck with orange-and-black body graphics, an orange grille, and exclusive 18-inch matte-black wheels. Ford also knows that exclusivity is in high demand, so the automaker will roll out several Splash Limited Edition models with limited production runs.
But what else makes the 2022 Ranger so enticing? It features everything you love about the Ford lineup in a compact package without making many sacrifices. For example, it’s affordably priced at $25,715 and is plenty capable with a 7,500-pound towing maximum.[a] Options like the Tremor Off-Road Package ready it for the trail, while accessories like a bed tent, bed liners, carriers, and racks extend its functionality for any situation. Essentially, the Ranger is a blank canvas that begs for customization.
With the Ranger, the possibilities of adventure are endless. You’re getting a road warrior that’s as comfortable on the pavement as it is on the trail. It’s efficient, powerful, and versatile, a remarkable trifecta that’s even more impressive when you experience it yourself. But there’s so much more to the Ranger than that. Here’s everything you can expect from the small but mighty Ranger in 2022.
Horsepower (hp): 270
Max Towing (lbs): 7,500
Torque (lb-ft): 310
A Smooth Performance for Commuting or Adventuring
The 2022 Ranger lives up to the “Built Ford Tough” slogan with ease, earning it a coveted place in the Ford fleet. Under the hood, the Ranger is powered by a 2.3L EcoBoost engine that delivers a class-leading torque rating of 310 lb-ft and 270 horsepower. This is plenty of power for quick acceleration, but there’s more to the EcoBoost than that. Ford’s twin-scroll turbocharger is renowned for its on-demand responsiveness that eliminates lag and delivers optimal performance the second you engage the accelerator pedal.
This responsiveness is enhanced by the Ranger’s 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. Ford’s SelectShift transmission is one of the best in the industry and features patented technology that guarantees smooth shift patterns and seamless gear progressions. This combination of the SelectShift transmission and the EcoBoost engine allows the Ranger to deliver the power and performance you need precisely when you need it.
The Perfect Amount of Capability
Of course, this performance looks different for every driver. For some, it means maxing out the Ranger’s best-in-class tow rating of 7,500 pounds or its best-in-class payload rating of 1,905 pounds. For others, it means venturing off the pavement and down the trail to get a little mud on the tires during a weekend adventure in the woods.
Wherever the Ranger takes you, it won’t break a sweat thanks to its powertrain and rugged components. These components enhance the Ranger’s performance and include a double A-arm independent front suspension and monotube shock absorbers. While the suspension makes the Ranger easier to maneuver on technical or challenging terrain, the shock absorbers enhance handling and give you the confidence to explore any road. Together, these components and the powertrain are responsible for the Ranger’s versatility on and off the pavement.
Design Your Truck for Off-Roading
Off-roading is one of the fastest-growing pastimes in America as more and more people discover the thrill of navigating a technical trail as part of a caravan of off-road rigs. It’s hard to beat time in the woods with friends, stories around the campfire under a starry night sky, and the chance to do it all again the next day. Ford recognizes as much, making the 2022 Ranger destined to join the pack. Its small size makes it easy to maneuver in challenging conditions, while its many off-road-oriented packages ready it for life beyond the pavement.
The Tremor Off-Road Package is an incredible addition to the Ranger because it readies the truck for the trail straight from the factory. The Tremor adds exclusive design details like Magnetic-painted alloy wheels, front and rear tow hooks, and off-road hoop-step-style running boards. The wheels make way for beefier all-terrain or mud tires, while the front and rear tow hooks guarantee you have a way out of a dicey situation. Behind the scenes, the package also adds FOX shocks and a modified heavy-duty off-road suspension that improve the Ranger’s handling and articulation in the most demanding conditions.
Ford gives you several other options to customize the Range for your off-road needs with three performance parts packages. The Ford Performance Parts Level 1 Package lifts the stock Ranger with an exclusive FOX Tuned Off-Road Suspension leveling kit, which explains the package’s matching OEM Dyno Gray-finished aluminum wheels. You’ll also find “Ford Performance” graphics for the windshield and bed that add unique design details to the Ranger.
The Level 2 Package builds on the Level 1 package with exclusive BFGoodrich K02 all-terrain tires that feature a rugged tread pattern and high-strength construction for all your off-roading needs. The package also precisely calibrates the Ranger for off-road performance and adds an Off-Road Fog Light Kit, blue tow hooks, and a unique frame for the license plate. What more could you need?
Ford answers all your off-roading needs with the Level 3 Package available on all four-wheel drive Rangers. This package adds unique design details and functional features like a black powder-coated steel chase rack that makes it easy to mount accessories in the bed. In addition, the package replaces the Ranger’s standard front bumper with a Ford Performance heavy-duty bumper. You’ll also find red tow hooks on the front and a sport exhaust system that gives the Ranger a throaty sound that will turn heads on and off the trail.
Technology for Trail-Riding, Entertainment, and Safety
The 2022 Ford Ranger is replete with innovative technology that improves your experience behind the wheel, engineers confidence, keeps you connected, and optimizes your safety wherever the road or trail takes you. This technology includes Ford’s advanced Terrain Management System that gives you greater control over the Ranger’s performance via four selectable drive modes–Normal, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, or Sand. Additional technology like Trail Control puts you in command on the trail and acts like cruise control at slow speeds. When engaged, the system manages the accelerator and brake pedal, allowing you to focus solely on steering.
While you’re in the driver’s seat, Ford gives you all the technology you need to stay informed and aware. The Ranger’s 8-inch center touchscreen display is home to Ford’s renowned SYNC 3 infotainment system that gives you access to your smartphone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto integration. For more connectivity, FordPass Connect equips the Ranger with a WiFi hotspot, ensuring you stay connected at every turn. You’ll also find the truck features a virtual assistant courtesy of the Ford+Alexa app that allows you to use simple voice commands to make calls, respond to messages, schedule appointments, navigate the fastest route, and more.
Behind the scenes, the Ranger’s state-of-the-art safety technology constantly works to enhance your visibility and minimize the potential for collision. The technology is centralized in the Ford Co-Pilot360 suite. It includes Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross-Traffic Alert, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane-Keeping System, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, and a Rear View Camera.
Ford’s BLIS keeps an eye on your blindspots and the truck’s rear while Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking monitors the traffic ahead. If it detects a potential collision, it can bring the Ranger to a stop if needed. In addition, advanced tools like Adaptive Cruise Control make driving at highway speeds easier by automatically adjusting your cruising speed based on the flow of traffic.
