2016 Ford Ranger
The Ranger name is present for almost 50 years. It was originally used for Edsel Ranger, which was a full-size sedan/coupe produced from 1957 to 1960. From 1965 to 1981 it was a styling package of Ford F-Series. Finally, in 1983 Ford introduced an all-new pickup called Ranger. This compact pickup was produced from 1983 to 2012 and after few years of brake, it is going to be produced again. Company works on new pickup which should come in near future (probably in 2016), but it is still unknown will it use the Ranger name, or will it be the part of F-Series line-up. Most of the experts anticipate that it will use the first-mentioned name, so we will call it 2016 Ranger.

Since this will be a brand-new model, it is expected that 2016 Ford Ranger get all-new look, which will be very modern and attractive. It will probably use the same “Atlas” platform, which is also used for F-150 models. It will probably have traditional square look, but we expect to see plenty of modern details on 2016 Ranger, especially on the front end. Headlights, bumpers, grille etc. will follow new design language, so expect to see new model with similar style to other latest pickups from Ford. It is still hard to predict how interior of 2016 Ford Ranger will look like, but there is no doubt that it will be spacious, comfortable, modern-looking and full of latest-technology features.
