It looks like we’re getting closer and closer to a local Ford Ranger launch. The next-generation pickup has just been launched at the 2022 Bangkok International Motor Show, which indicates it might be headed to the Philippines next.

The all-new Ford Ranger lands in Thailand with its new macho look. C-shaped headlights flank the large new grille up front, while stylish taillights and a more sculpted tailgate make up the rear end. We won’t go into detail about the design anymore because we’ve done that before, so if you simply want to see what’s changed with the all-new model, read our style review here. Instead, let’s talk more about the engine and the tech.

The all-new Ranger can be had in the Thai market with either a 2.0-liter turbodiesel that generates 168hp and 405Nm of torque, or a 2.0-liter bi-turbocharged diesel mill capable of 207hp and 500Nm. The former is mated to a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, while the latter gets a 10-speed automatic.

The new pickup’s new tech arsenal is headlined by the new 10.1-inch infotainment system (upgradable to 12 inches) with Ford Sync 4A connectivity and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A 360-degree-view monitor with an off-road display, a wireless charging pad, and a fully digital instrument cluster are also available.

The new Ranger has been listed in the ‘Coming Soon’ section on Ford Philippines’ website for quite some time now, and this launch in Thailand suggests the truck’s arriving sooner rather than later. We’re stoked, especially if we’ll also be getting all these new tech and features in our market.
