Get ready for a big change in the world of mid-size trucks! Ford is getting set to launch it’s first-ever Ranger Plug-in Hybrid in early 2025. It’s not just any truck; it’s a truck with a twist. The new model will offer zero-tailpipe emission driving capability, in addition to the essential next-generation Ranger towing, off-road, and payload attributes, and more torque than any other Ranger.
Electric Power Meets Toughness:
The Ranger Plug-in Hybrid combines the best of both worlds. It will be powered by a 2.3-liter Ford EcoBoost petrol engine paired with an electric motor and rechargeable battery system and do all the cool things you expect from a Ranger truck such as:
- Tow up to 3500 kg or 7716 pounds
- Climb steep hills and navigate rough terrain with ease
Going the Distance:
The Ranger Plug-in Hybrid can go on electricity for more than 45 kilometers (28 miles). This pure electric drive capability will open up new possibilities for business owners in growing numbers of towns and cities with low emissions zones.
Powerful and Ready for Adventure:
The Ranger Plug-in Hybrid will also retain the Ranger’s proven four-wheel drive off-road capability, with five selectable drive modes and advanced driver safety and driver assist features.
Say Goodbye to Noisy Generators:
Have you ever used a loud, heavy generator? Not fun, right? Well, the Ranger Plug-in Hybrid will be equipped with Pro Power Onboard, which allows customers to power their high-draw power tools and appliances on a worksite or remote campsite by plugging them into power outlets embedded in both the cargo bed and the cabin. This means that noisy, bulky, and heavy generators can be left at home, leaving more space in the cargo bed for other gear and equipment
An Ecosystem of Help:
The Ranger Plug-in Hybrid is a significant step forward in Ford’s plans to offer a full range of powertrain options for customers in the mid-sized pick-up truck segment. The new model will also benefit from the Ford Pro ecosystem of solutions, which simplifies the transition to electric vehicles with charging, software, and service options to help businesses thrive.
Here are some of the key benefits of the Ranger Plug-in Hybrid:
- Zero-tailpipe emission driving capability
- More torque than any other Ranger
- Proven four-wheel drive off-road capability
- Pro Power Onboard for powering high-draw tools and appliances
- Eligibility for low emissions zone access
- Part of the Ford Pro ecosystem of solutions for businesses
The Ranger Plug-in Hybrid is a versatile and capable truck that offers a number of benefits to customers, including reduced emissions, improved fuel efficiency, and increased flexibility. It is well-suited for a variety of uses, from work to recreation.
