Does the all-new Ford Ranger actually look like an F-150 or a Maverick?
Ford surprised everyone yesterday when they unleashed the seventh-generation Ranger pick-up truck. Not only did it get a new look, but Ford also made sure it could carry more cargo, comes with the latest technologies, and packs a new twin-turbo diesel V6.
But what did Ford exactly do to the T7 Ranger? To give everyone a better look at the automaker's latest model, we compiled several pictures of the all-new pick-up truck in all its glory.
First and foremost; the exterior. While the T6 already looks good, Ford decided to kick it up a notch by giving the T7 a more chiseled design.
With design cues from both the F-150 and the Maverick, the all-new Ranger now features Ford's global design DNA. Perhaps the most noticeable styling cues are the C-shaped LED daytime running lights and headlights, which give the pick-up its futuristic appearance.
The grille was also redesigned and features a split in the middle, a larger opening, and bigger honeycomb inserts. If anything, you can consider the latest Ranger as an “F-150 Lite” or the “Maverick Plus”, depending on who you ask.
Moving to the interior, and those familiar with the T6's interior will find the T7's dashboard sleek and futuristic. Instead of just simply redesigning it, Ford went to the drawing board and came up with something completely different.
It gets a huge tablet-like touchscreen that features the brand's latest SYNC 4 system. Meanwhile, the center console gets a sleek automatic climate control panel, revised cupholders, and what appears to be a new shift-by-wire gear selector.
Also worth mentioning are the huge aircon vents, the digital instrument panel, a new steering wheel with updated controls/buttons, a selectable 4WD system, and an electronic parking brake that replaces the traditional lever.
In Wildtrak models, expect the Ranger to come with a full-leather upholstery, orange contrast stitching, along with other neat amenities.

As for when the all-new Ranger will arrive here, we can expect to make its official debut in mid- or late-2022.
