The 2024 Ford Ranger has been given a makeover this year which includes more than just a few nips and tucks. The all-new Ford Ranger has been tweaked and updated to meet the demands of truck owners, who expect a lot from the Blue Oval’s best-selling midsize model. With the 2024 Ford Ranger, drivers can expect a little extra space thanks to the truck’s modified design, which adds an additional 2 inches to the length and width. Add to that a bold new redesign for the front and updated styling for the cabin, and there is a lot to look forward to. A new addition to the Ranger’s engine lineup gives drivers additional powertrain options.
Oh, and one of the most exciting things? The Ranger Raptor is here! This model was designed to take drivers past the pavement and onto adventure. It offers high-performance, rugged, off-road abilities that will make drivers rethink what a midsize model is capable of. Sitting comfortably between Ford’s Maverick and F-150 model, the Ranger is everything you could want from a midsize truck. Since its return to the American market in 2019, we’ve been waiting for Ford to update it. The Ranger now presents some stiff competition to other trucks in its class, and we have to say, it’s about time. It’s clear the 2024 Ford Ranger has a lot to offer drivers in the upcoming year. From modern styling to great powertrain options, the all-new Ranger is an impressive machine.

In the cabin, the new SYNC 4A technology is user-friendly and voice-activated, making it easy for you to keep your hands on the wheel while getting directions, checking your truck’s levels, or selecting a favorite playlist.

The Ford Power-Up software can be conveniently accessed on your smartphone, making it easier to stay in the loop and keep your Ranger’s tech on track.
Wireless Charging and the 360-Degree Camera
Tired of looking for your phone’s charger? Say goodbye to the fray of wires with the Ranger’s wireless technology! It’s fast and easy to get in, place your compatible smartphone on the charging pad and let your Ranger do the rest. Wireless charging comes standard on XLT, LARIAT, and Raptor models. The Ranger’s 360-degree camera helps you see what is going on all around you. While it is available on the XLT trim, drivers will find it standard on the LARIAT and Raptor models. The front, rear, and mirror-mounted cameras give drivers a bird’s eye view and the confidence they want every time they get behind the wheel.
Available Trailering Tech
The class-exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist makes backing up as simple as turning a nob. Available on the XLT and LARIAT, this technology was designed to make hooking up your trailer faster. Check out the view on your screen and turn the nobs to easily back up and streamline your towing and hauling. But that’s not all; the Ranger’s available Trailer Brake Controller helps slow down your trailer. When you press down on the brakes, the brakes on your trailer kick in to give you added safety and control over your trailer.
The Terrain Management System
As for performance tech, the Ranger’s Terrain Management System has drivers covered. This system offers up to seven different modes and comes standard with the FX4 Off-Road Package. Modes include:
- Normal Mode: Perfect for basic, everyday driving around town. Works on light, even terrain.
- Eco Mode: This advanced mode measures your driving habits and provides drivers feedback to see how their fuel is being used and what areas they can improve on.
- Sport Mode: To add a little pep to your ride, switch to Sport Mode. This mode gives you a sportier ride with increased throttle response and acceleration.
- Tow/Haul Mode: Increase your truck’s performance when you switch to Tow/Haul mode. This mode gives you better control over your vehicle and gives you extra assistance when navigating downhill.
- Slippery Mode: This mode was designed to help drivers out when they get stuck in a slippery situation. It optimizes shifting and lowers throttle response when dealing with slippery surfaces like sand or snow.
- Mud/Ruts Mode: Stuck in a rut? Switch over the Mud/Ruts and be on your way. This mode helps you out when tackling muddy or sandy surfaces. It helps optimize your truck’s performance so you don’t get bogged down when tackling off-road terrain.
- Sand Mode: The name pretty much says it all. When dealing with sandy or soft terrain, switch to Sand Mode for enhanced performance that’ll help keep you from getting stuck. The mode offers a steady momentum over sandy surfaces to keep you going.
Innovative Truck Bed Enhancements
We can’t finish up the technology section without checking out the Ranger’s upgraded bed. The 400-watt outlet that comes standard on the XLT, LARIAT, and Raptor models gives drivers added flexibility when off the grid. Whether you need to power your drill or charge up your phone, the 400-watt available in-bed outlet gives you the ability to stay powered up. Then there is also the novel LED bed lightning. Whether you’re getting an early start or packing it in for the night, LED bed lighting gives drivers the convenience of loading up their truck bed in the dark. The LED bed lighting comes standard on the XLT, LARIAT, and Ranger models.
Drivers don’t just get the best performance and tech that Ford has to offer but also the peace of mind that the Blue Oval has their back, thanks to the well-rounded Ford Co-Pilot360 safety suite. This package comes standard and offers a variety of tools to keep drivers safe and informed behind the wheel.
The Ford Co-Pilot360 Suite
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking uses camera technology to help you avoid potential collisions with vehicles, bikers, or pedestrians. It gives drivers both audible and visual warnings, but if you cannot react quickly enough, the system can apply the brakes to help lessen the impact. The Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) helps you keep an eye out when it comes to your blind spots. It also offers a Cross-Traffic Alert to keep you informed. It lets you know when a vehicle is detected in your blind spot, so you never have to guess when deciding whether to change lanes.
Other Standard Safety Features
The Lane-Keeping System is great for long drivers when a driver might feel fatigued. If the system senses drivers drifting from their lane, it can provide an alert and help guide your vehicle safely back into your lane. The Rear View Camera lets you know what is going on behind you. Whether you’re trying to back up in a busy parking lot or trying to hitch up your trailer, the extra set of eyes can make your day a little easier and a little safer. Auto High-Beam Headlamps take some of the stress out of nighttime driving. The system can sense oncoming traffic and adjust your headlamps accordingly. When traffic has passed, it can adjust your headlamps, so all you have to do is focus on the road ahead.
