The Ford Ranger has come a long way since its introduction back in 1983 and serves as a great alternative to those who need something smaller than the big F-150 trucks. The truck, owing to its compact size and decent performance, is a great urban vehicle. After the 2012 model year, Ford discontinued the Ranger in the US market but was generous enough to re-introduce it for the 2019 model year in its fourth generation model. Since then the truck has remained unchanged.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


For the 2022 model year, the Ranger is touted to be an all-new model with an all-new performance-oriented Raptor model on the line. The changes will likely be done extensively on the design front and the powertrain will be carried over from the current model year. The prices are expected to start from $26,000 for the base trim with the standard RWD layout. In the segment, the truck competes with the Toyota Tacoma, Chevrolet Colorado, and the Jeep Gladiator.

2022 Ford Ranger SuperCab Features

Even though the 2022 Ford Ranger is going to be an all-new model, it is expected to retain the trim levels of the current model year but the prices are set to be slightly higher. The 2022 Ranger SuperCab is currently offered in three trim levels which are XL, XLT, and Lariat. The price for the base trim of the current model starts at $25,000 whereas the 2022 base model will expectedly have a starting MSRP of $26,000. Not much is known about the features and techs of the upcoming Ranger but the current model is sold with a handsome list of features right from the base trim. Some of the standard features on offer include an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Forward collision mitigation system, and WiFi hotspot among others. The optional 101A package further includes a bigger infotainment display screen, cruise control, and the Sync 3 infotainment system among other features. There is also a Co-Pilot360 safety package to enhance the safety of the truck which adds a Blind-spot monitor with a cross-traffic alert system and Lane-keeping assist to the safety feature list. The list of features gets even more appealing with the XLT and the top-end Lariat trim level. There is also an off-road specific Tremor Off-Road package which is exclusive to the SuperCab body layout and 4WD drivetrain layout. It offers a revised suspension setup, Fox shock absorbers, 32-inch all-terrain tires, underbody protection, and additional recovery hooks among other features.

We Recommend

We would recommend the XLT trim for a better experience in terms of entertainment and infotainment systems along with better safety techs. The base XL trim is best suited if you have a budget constraint but the trim is quite well equipped for the price tag it carries.

Release Date

The 2022 Ford Ranger is expected to arrive at the dealerships by fall 2022 or early 2022. The pre-booking is expected to start by the month of September 2022.

2022 Ford Ranger SuperCab Engine and Performance

The upcoming Ford Ranger SuperCab is expected to retain the current powertrain and drivetrain configurations. Presently, the Ranger is powered by a standard 2.3-liter turbocharged I-4 motor that dishes out a maximum of 270 horsepower and an impressive 310 lb-ft of torque. In recent years, Ford has been downsizing the powerplants of a majority of its vehicles to adhere to the stricter emission norms and improve fuel economy while keeping intact the performance numbers. While doing so, the brand has been successfully squeezing out some impressive power and torque figures from the four-pot motors by employing its revolutionary EcoBoost technology that is also found on the Mustang muscle car as well. The Ranger’s motor also gets the Ecoboost technology and has a twin-scroll turbocharger for better efficiency. The motor is paired to a standard 10R80 10-speed automatic transmission that helps maximize power delivery while enhancing fuel economy by keeping the motor relaxed at all times.

The refinement levels of the motor are spot-on and even under harsh acceleration it is barely audible from inside the cabin. With the combo of a brilliant powertrain and drivetrain, the Ford Ranger posts an impressive 0-60mph sprint time of 6.8 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 15.2 seconds which are commendable for a compact pickup truck powered by a compact four-pot motor. When equipped properly, the truck can tow a maximum of 3,500 lbs which is just about average for the segment.

The Jeep Gladiator is a more rugged and old-school truck based on the much-loved Jeep Wrangler SUV and gets a standard 3.6-liter V6 powertrain under its hood, making it one of the biggest motors in the segment. Despite all that displacement and decent power levels, it is one of the slowest accelerating trucks here but its sheer off-roading capabilities make up for the lackluster performance. The Chevrolet Colorado also houses a 3.6-liter V6 under its hood and has an impressive horsepower rating of 308 but is slightly slower than the Ranger. However, the Colorado, with the V6, can tow a maximum of 7,000 lbs which is impressive. The Toyota Tacoma gets a 3.5-liter V6 powerplant and has decent power and torque figures for the segment. It can also tow a maximum of 6,800 lbs, making the Ranger a least appreciable option in the segment in terms of towing capacity.

2022 Ford Ranger SuperCab Fuel Economy

The 2022 Ford Ranger will expectedly retain the current fuel economy ratings since the powertrain will remain the same. The present Ranger truck is one of the most fuel-efficient offerings in the segment. The EPA ratings post a city mileage of 21mpg, 26mpg of highway mileage, and 23mpg of combined mileage respectively. The only disappointing factor is the comparatively smaller gas tank of 18 gallons which restricts the overall driving range of the truck.

The Jeep Gladiator is the least fuel-efficient truck here owing to its old platform and motor. Despite its sizable gas tank of 22 gallons it fails to deliver some decent driving range figures. The Chevrolet Colorado with its V6 motor posts some impressive fuel economy figures especially on the highway and the combined section. The 21-gallon gas tank onboard the Colorado allows it to offer some impressive driving range figures too. The Toyota Tacoma offers some solid fuel-efficiency figures for a truck among the rivals here and has the best city and combined driving range figures as well. 

2022 Ford Ranger SuperCab Interior

Along with the exterior changes, the 2022 Ford Ranger interior will also see a redesign too. Not much is known about the design but it is expected that the dashboard design along with the center console and the gauge cluster designs will change. The 2022 Ford Ranger interior is already quite an appealing place with its modern and stylish design and looks like the cabin of an SUV rather than a pickup truck. The dashboard design looks appealing with a straightforward layout and easily accessible controls layout. The front seats are adequately comfortable and offer a good amount of support, making long journeys comfortable. The headroom and legroom are adequate for the front passengers while the rear seats lack legroom and can make long trips a bit more tiring than usual.

The base XL trim and the XLT makes do with cloth and vinyl upholstery while the Lariat trim gets a premium leather upholstery. The optional 101A package adds power mirrors Dual-zone automatic climate control to the base trim. On the XLT trim, the 302A package makes things more appealing by adding power-folding mirrors, a manual-sliding rear window, power-adjustable and heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The 2022 Jeep Gladiator offers acres of headroom for both the front and rear seats owing to its tall roof and minimalistic interior panels. Also, it gets manually removable doors and roof panels for serious off-roading purposes. The seats are comfortable and offer a decent amount of cushioning and the rear seats are more accommodating as compared to the Ranger’s rear seats. The controls are laid out in a straightforward manner but the overall design might not appeal to a majority of the buyers out there. The Chevrolet Colorado’s dashboard design and the overall interior layout have a faint resemblance to the previous generation Silverado’s cabin. The seats are quite comfortable and supportive along with an excellent amount of headroom on offer for the front passengers.

The rear headroom is better than the Ranger’s rear seat but the legroom is on the lower side. The Toyota Tacoma’s cabin has a rugged appeal to it like the exterior design of the truck. The overall layout is simple and the controls are easily accessible from the driver’s seat. The overall comfort levels are decent and the build quality is as excellent as any other vehicle from Toyota. The rear seats are quite cramped, however, with a poor amount of headroom and legroom at the back.

Some interior features are:

  • Rear under-seat storage tray
  • Remote keyless entry
  • 1-touch down power windows
  • Front and rear cupholders
  • Retained accessory power
  • Day-night rearview mirror
  • Tilt and telescopic steering wheel
  • Cruise control with steering wheel controls
  • Dual-zone automatic electronic temperature control
  • Single Smart Charging USB Port

2022 Ford Ranger SuperCab Exterior

The 2022 Ford Ranger exterior will be redesigned as per the speculations but the present design looks quite attractive. From the outside, the truck looks like the Endeavour with a cargo bed but there are several styling cues that separate the truck from the SUV. The front end has a well-balanced design that makes the truck look aggressive and rugged. Unlike some of the rivals on the segment, the Ranger doesn’t get that heavy dose of chrome details but the minimal chrome inserts on the front fascia of the truck give an elegant appeal. The hood has some sculpted design elements to give a muscular appearance while the side profile looks neat with plastic cladding under the wheel arches.

The base XL trim gets rather bland steel wheels but the XLT gets the attractive alloy wheels that enhance the overall appearance of the vehicle. At the back, the vertically mounted taillights look a bit similar to the F-150’s taillights while the tailgate gets the name of the truck etched in sheet metal in all capital format. The rear bumper also gets a tasteful chrome insert to accentuate the chrome details at the front. The ground clearance is commendable at 8.4-inches but it is still not so off-road friendly.

The Jeep Gladiator, as mentioned earlier, is based on the Wrangler SUV and literally looks like a Wrangler with a cargo bed, much like the Ranger looking like the Endeavour. At the front, the Gladiator gets an unmistakable styling with Jeep’s seven-slot front grille design and round headlamp units, and a bit extended front bumpers. One impressive bit about the Gladiator is that it has fully removable doors and roof panels to make it more off-road friendly which is unique in the segment. The overall chunky and boxy design of the truck screams masculinity with the iconic front fenders to accentuate the design. The Chevrolet Colorado has a bold and aggressive design language, especially at the front end. The truck borrows some of its styling cues from its bigger sibling, the Silverado, and has bigger dimensions than the Ford Ranger. The Toyota Tacoma looks like a baby Tundra from certain angles owing to some similar design elements. Overall, the Tacoma has a rugged exterior appeal but feels quite compact like the Ranger when compared side-by-side with the Colorado.

Some exterior features are:

  • 16-inch steel wheels
  • Manually locking tailgate
  • Galvanized steel or aluminum body material
  • Power-folding mirrors
  • Convex driver and passenger mirror
  • Black front bumper with black rub strip

2022 Ford Ranger SuperCab Safety

The Ford Ranger, being a truck, has an impressive safety department owing to its superb construction and a handsome list of safety techs offered as standard. The truck bagged a decent 4-star out of 5-star rating from the NHTSA while the IIHS gave it an overall rating of “Good”. The standard safety techs include a forward-collision warning system, lane-keeping assist, and a blind-spot monitoring system which are bundled together and termed as Co-Pilot360 suite of driving aids.

Some of the standout safety features include:

  • Co-Pilot360 suite of driving aids
  • Rear View Camera
  • AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control
  • Airbags - Safety Canopy side curtains
  • Curve Control
  • Safety belts - Active Restraint System (ARS), three-point manual lap/shoulder belts with height adjusters
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • SecuriLock passive anti-theft system
  • SOS Post-Crash Alert System

2022 Ford Ranger SuperCab Competition

Ford Ranger SuperCab vs Chevrolet Colorado

The Chevrolet Colorado gives the Ranger tough competition in the segment owing to its bold and brawny appearance and better towing capabilities. Moreover, the Colorado has a better cabin space as compared to the Ranger, making it an overall better option against the Ranger in the segment.

Ford Ranger Crew Cab vs Toyota Tacoma

The Toyota Tacoma is a popular alternative to the Ford Ranger in the segment owing to its design and Toyota’s bulletproof reliability. However, the Tacoma falls short in front of the Ranger when it comes to interior space and performance along with towing capacity. The Tacoma also fails to match up to the Ranger in terms of fuel economy as well.

Toyota Tacoma

Ford Ranger vs Jeep Gladiator

The Jeep Gladiator is the sole offering in the segment with some serious off-roading prowess along with off-road specific customizations. It might not be as refined and well-mannered as the Ranger on the road but venturing off the roads with the Gladiator is a breeze. However, the Gladiator disappoints the most with its poor fuel economy as compared to the Ranger along with other popular rivals in the segment.

2022 Ford Ranger SuperCab Final Verdict

With the new 2022 Ford Ranger around the corner, the popular pickup truck is all set to become more appealing with a new design both inside and outside. Thankfully, the truck will get to retain its brilliant EcoBoost powertrain with excellent performance and fuel economy, a tough find in the segment. The upcoming model is expected to offer a better cabin space and features which will make it, even more, attractive to buyers. Despite all the rumors, the Ranger will still have that compact body shell that will repel the ones looking for something more rugged and off-road friendly.
