    Being discussed over at Blue Oval with the thinking it’s legit for at least the next ROW Ranger.

    Wow that looks great if it's real. The badge underneath the front badge camo looks like it could be a Ford Oval.

    But I dunno... when you zoom in on the images they look like they could renderings?

    Looks more like a Chevy to me. That grill is very similar to the new Chevy Silverados. I'm no expert on what car manufacturers do but I don't see them making such a drastic change in only a few years.

    Saw this in my feed this morning... Looks like a Chinese knockoff to me and considering the lack of sourced info I'd take it with a heavy dose of NaCl.

    This article suggests that it is a clay model based on the blacked out windows. I do find it odd that the US version gets a real front bumper and yet this one is shown with a front facia. Also the photos appear to be taken in Australia which is where Ford has been developing the Ranger for years. I like the lines but would expect the front end to change slightly. Ford won't want it to look like a small F-150 and need to keep the younger sibling appearance.

    Although I'm inclined to agree with this statement, it is worth noting that (as has been commented on/complained about extensively both here and elsewhere) the 2019 US Ranger is not a completely new vehicle, but an foreign model that has been modified for the US market. It is therefore possible that Ford considers it time to do a drastic redesign of the international Ranger, and thus at the same time they might as well apply the same sorts of changes to the US Ranger, even though it will only be a 2-year old model. If this was the plan the whole time, it may partially explain why they kept the Ranger options so limited (single drive-train, only 2 cab/bed configurations) compared to every single competitor and the other Ford pickups, as there's no point in dumping a bunch of resources into designing/engineering more configurations if they're going to be short-lived.

    Exactly. It’s been stated several times our model is merely a placeholder to make entry into the market. The design although new to the states is dated worldwide so a next generation coming “sooner” than usual makes sense.

    As for this design in particular, I see more “Ford” details than any other manufacturer. The covered logo up front appears to have a curve along the top edge. Behind the front wheel well there also appears to be a vertical vent appliqué much like the Super Duty (who knows if there’ll be a match on the redesigned 150 as well).

    This rendering looks way better in my opinion.

    I saw this same article on Motortrend this morning. I know it seems early, but as stated before, the Ranger as it's current platform sits is nearly 9 years old so it's about time for the next Gen to be making an appearance.
