In a series of photos shared by Warren on the Vic High Country Trips, Info, Vehicle Setups Facebook group, the all-new Ford Ranger is seen driving around alongside the Everest and Ranger Raptor. Of course, the three Ford models were wearing camouflage to conceal their new design elements.

Looking at the photos, one can say that the Ford models come with ARB 4x4 off-road accessories. Some of these enhancements include a bull-bar, roof racks, LED auxiliary lights, and a snorkel for improved water wading. Ford could be testing the off-road capabilities of its all-new vehicles with the additional bits installed.

No official specifications have been disclosed by the Blue Oval company just yet. But reports suggest that the Ranger and Everest will offer a 15.5-inch portrait infotainment screen similar to the Ford Mustang Mach-E. Both are expected to come with wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Ford’s SYNC 4 system.

The Ford Ranger and Everest are expected to still be powered by a 2.0-liter bi-turbo diesel engine that makes 211 hp and 500 Nm of torque. Rumors hint that a possible power bump will be applied to the said engine. Meanwhile, the Ranger Raptor will reportedly get a larger V6 turbodiesel engine as standard.
