Recently, some spy photos revealing the revamped Ford Ranger 2018 running on Thai roads without camouflage have been leaked on Headlight Magazine. The allegedly facelifted model appears to receive a number of refreshments on the outside for the 2018 model year.

The changes up front are subtle yet noticeable. In detail, the spied Ford Ranger 2018 facelift no longer features the big chrome chunk on its front bumper which has now been smoothed out and added with defined lines on each corner. The makeover for the front fascia is finished with the addition of LED Daytime running lights, new fog lamp housings and redesigned two-bar grille.
Ford Ranger - A powerful off-road vehicle
According to the spy shots, it seems that the rest of the pickup stays unchanged. However, if looking more closely, we can spot the newly-added “Limited” badging found on the tailgate and the front doors. Currently, the Ranger fleet in the Philippines has 4 members, namely the Wildtrak, FX4, XLT and XLS, which means that this lineup is likely to be extended to 5 variants if the updated Ranger spotted in Thailand is also to go to our shores. According to car experts, the Limited model might find a slot somewhere in the middle of the range.

As for the refinements for interior, technology and engine, there has yet to be any official disclosure from the Blue Oval. The current-generation Ranger is powered by a 2.2-liter, four-cylinder and a 3.2-liter, five-cylinder engine options. Both are part of the Duratoq turbodiesel engine family.

It has been over two years since the last update of the stylish off-roader from Ford. In 2015, the American auto maker gave its tough pickup truck a handful of refreshments including revised front fascia, added active safety features, improved under the hood and the chassis as well.
It is clear to see that the updates brought to the new Ford Ranger 2018 model appear to be quite minor, especially when compared with what had been done with the 2015 facelift. However, as full information has yet to be announced at the moment, we still have the right to let our imagination run free and hope for a nicely-refreshed Ranger inside and out.
