Back in last week, we admired the facelifted Ford Ranger surfaced on the Internet. Called the Limited, that car has the same grille as the US-spec FX4 but with more added chrome detailing. It also shares some components with the outgoing Ranger like the bumper corners and taillights. While the US variants have been revealed already, it is highly likely that this Limited would be made for Australian and Asian markets.

The powertrain is where the changes occur most. In the US market, the Ford Ranger 2018 facelift will pack a 2.3L 4-cylinder EcoBoost turbocharged gasoline mill used in the Ford Explorer, in lieu of a turbo diesel. No words on the exact output produced but it’s expected to range between 260 PS and 300 PS. The new engine will come paired to a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
