Overview

What's New

The 2022 Ford Ranger is available with a new Splash Package with bold exterior graphics and unique interior trim. Otherwise, Ford's midsize pickup is unchanged. An all-new Ranger is reportedly coming for the 2023 model year.

Choosing Your Ford Ranger

The 2022 Ranger is offered in three trim levels: XL, XLT, and Lariat. Pricing starts at $26,795 including destination and goes to $34,885 for the Lariat before options.

Engine Choices

Every Ranger carries a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that musters 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Four-wheel drive costs $3,855 on the XL and $3,700 on the XLT and Lariat.

The rear-drive Ranger is EPA-rated at 21 miles per gallon city, 26 mpg highway, and 23 combined. As expected, fuel economy estimates ease with 4WD to 20/24/22 mpg (city/highway/combined).

The Ranger can tow up to 7,500 pounds.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

All Ranger trims start out with a four-person SuperCab and a six-foot bed. The optional SuperCrew configuration offers rooms for five and a five-foot bed. Upgrading to the SuperCrew costs $2,400 on the XL and $2,175 on the XLT and Lariat.

Ford Ranger

Safety Features

Standard driver assistance technology for XL is limited to automatic emergency braking. For $625, buyers can add Ford Co-Pilot 360 with lane-keeping assist, automatic high beams, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

Co-Pilot 360 is standard on the XLT and Lariat. The Lariat also gets rear parking sensors, which are available on the others for $110. The Technology Package for the XLT and Lariat adds adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors, and navigation for $995.

Owing to the Ranger's age, more advanced features like surround-view cameras and reverse automatic braking aren't available. The all-new 2023 Ranger will likely offer such items.

Connectivity

The Ranger XL is one of the few vehicles left on the market without a standard touchscreen. The infotainment system consists of a 2.3-inch display, four speakers, and a USB port. The $1,135 101A Package includes six-speaker sound and Ford's Sync voice control system. The XL's STX Special Edition Package ($995) thankfully adds an eight-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, an upgraded version of Sync, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Compatibility. All of these features are standard starting with the XLT.

A household-style power outlet and a second USB port are available together on the XL and XLT ($120) and come standard on the Lariat. The Lariat can get a 10-speaker Bang and Olufsen sound system as part of the $2,005 501A Package.

2022 Ford Ranger XL – MSRP From $26,795

The XL starts off with just the basics: air conditioning, power windows and locks, automatic headlights, cloth or vinyl seats, vinyl floor covering, and 16-inch steel wheels. Besides it connectivity upgrades, the 101A Package ($1,135) tacks on cruise control, power side mirrors, a vehicle alarm, a locking tailgate, and keyless entry.

The FX4 Off-Road Package ($1,295) adds all-terrain tires and shocks, a locking rear differential, underbody skid plates, and an off-road driver information screen. The FX2 Package ($595) adds the same features to 4x2 models.

The STX Appearance Package ($1,095) brings in premium cloth seats, fog lights, box decals, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. For an extra $995, the STX Special Edition Package equips the XL with the aforementioned connectivity upgrades — plus automatic dual-zone climate control, a rear window defroster, privacy glass, and 18-inch black wheels.

2022 Ford Ranger XLT – MSRP From $30,845

The XLT comes standard with the 101A and STX features, plus 17-inch aluminum wheels and body-color exterior trim. The 301A Package ($1,670) provides an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a Sport Appearance Package. The rear parking sensors, second USB port, and power outlet are included as well. The other main option group, 302A ($2,450), also contains heated power front seats, remote start, power-folding side mirrors, and a sliding rear window.

In addition to the FX4 upgrades, the Tremor Off-Road Package ($4,290) carries a lifted suspension with FOX 2.0 monotube dampers, a terrain selector, low-speed cruise control, an electronic-locking rear differential, and 32-inch all-terrain tires. Interiors receive a tray-style floor liner, vinyl seats with suede inserts, and six upfitter switches. The package is available on 4x4 Crew Cabs equipped with the 301A Package.

The $600 Splash Package, optional on Crew Cabs with the 301A Package, adds bold bodyside graphics, black body trim with orange accents, black interior trim with orange stitching, and 18-inch matte black wheels. For $1,495, buyers can combine the Splash treatment with an exclusive paint color that changes monthly. As of this writing, the featured color is Cyber Orange Metallic.

2022 Ford Ranger Lariat – MSRP From $34,885

The Lariat picks up leather front seats, full LED exterior lighting, and 18-inch machined-fish wheels. The $2,005 501A Package includes a second driver information display, remote start, automatic wipers, a universal home remote, the Bang and Olufsen system, and the Technology Package. The FX, Tremor, and Splash packages remain available.

Off-road-ready truck with some on-road shortcomings. The 2022 Ford Ranger is an amazing truck off the beaten path. Particularly if you opt for the FX4 or Tremor package, which adds all types of rugged off-roading equipment. However, it doesn’t drive like a midsize pickup on the road – it’s more like a full-size rig. This puts a severe damper on its abilities as a daily driver. Find out if this impacts its competitiveness in the important midsize pickup class below.

Sharp on the outside, not so hot inside. Though it’s not cut from the same cloth as its work-ready siblings, the F-Series lineup, the 2022 Ranger’s body looks the part. Its large “RANGER” stamping, bold grille, and upright shoulders make sure of that while retaining some smoother lines for a more approachable look than a full-size pickup.

Inside, though, the Ranger reminds you it's an old design refreshed for the American market. The cabin is plain and unexciting, leaving the passenger craving something interesting to look at. Plus, hard, grainy plastics flow into key touchpoints, leaving the whole cabin feeling cheaper than it needs to be, even in higher trims.

Ford Ranger

Powerful standard four-cylinder. The 2022 Ranger’s base 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivers ample power at 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, which launches it to 60 mph in an impressive seven seconds. This engine also allows it to tow up to 7,500 pounds – an impressive feat for a small pickup.

However, this is the only engine option. No diesel. No hybrid. No V6. Nothing. Its competitors all have at least one optional engine, and one of these highlights is the diesel in the Colorado and Canyon that gives them up to 30 miles per gallon highway. The Ranger falls way behind at just 21 mpg city, 26 highway, and 23 combined.

On-road manners are poor. With its optional FX4 package, which includes a torque-vectoring rear axle, skid plates, tow hooks, a multi-mode traction-control system, and knobby tires, the Ranger is confident off-roading. The Tremor enhances this with chunky LT tires, Fox shocks, and a raised suspension.

On the pavement, though, the Ranger is bouncy, unruly, and tends to nosedive on heavy braking. It drives like a truck. Buyers looking for less of a truck-like drive can look to the Honda Ridgeline, but you’ll give up a lot in capability.

Final thoughts. The 2022 Ford Ranger is a capable pickup with its big towing capacity, powerful engine, and optional off-road gear. However, it lacks a lot of refinement others in its class have, including the Colorado, Canyon, and Tacoma. Plus, its lack of a diesel option is disheartening to many buyers.

Further down the line, there are rumors that Ford may add a Ranger Raptor to the lineup. A possible redesign may also be in store for 2023 or 2024. Alternatively, Ford now offers a smaller pickup called the 2022 Maverick that may be better suited for urban pursuits, has a lower price, and comes standard with a hybrid engine.
