Like the monsoons that Thailand has to endure, undisguised photos of the updated Ford Ranger are raining down thick and fast on the internet.
The latest set of photos come courtesy of AutoIndustriya.com and the message board run by Thailand’s Headlight Magazine.
All the photos you see here are of the top-spec Wildtrak variant of the soon-to-be-released facelifted Ranger. As with previous photos of the revised Ranger, these photos were taken in Thailand, where the ute will once again be built.
In the images above, taken from the Headlight Magazine forum, we get our clearest look yet at the updated Ranger’s interior, which features a redesigned dashboard top and centre stack.
It should come as little surprise that the interior design theme of the new Ranger is shared with the closely related Everest SUV, which was unveiled late last year.
The Ranger above features a utilitarian dark-grey-on-moon-grey colour scheme, an upper dash portion with faux leather stitching, and a central stack with a visually separated lower area for physical audio and climate controls. There’s also a large touchscreen recessed in the centre of dashboard, which, going by earlier leaked photos, runs Ford’s Sync 2 system.
The photos published by AutoIndustriya.com (above and below) indicate that changes to the rear of updated Ranger will be far less radical than those applied to the front and the interior.
In fact, it’s likely that any modifications will only be noticed by the most eagle-eyed of car spotters.
As with the current Ranger Wildtrak, the updated version features a blacked out grille and bumper treatment, side steps, and a “sports bar” above the load area.
The revised Ford Ranger is expected to go on sale locally during the third quarter of the year.
