Australian pricing for the 2023 Ford Ranger line-up – including the Ford Ranger Raptor performance pick-up – has been announced ahead of showroom arrivals from June onwards.
Prices for the new Ford Ranger and Ford Ranger Raptor have increased by up to $6100 – and dealers are already reporting waiting times of six months or more, due to orders received in the lead-up to today’s pricing announcement.
A number of Ford dealers canvassed by Drive say they are each holding more than 100 orders for the new Ford Ranger line-up, ahead of Australian showroom arrivals from mid-year.
It means new Ford Ranger models ordered by customers today might not be delivered for at least another six months.
The official price list for the new Ford Ranger shows most models in the range have increased by less than $1100; some have no price rise at all.
Most models in the range are powered by a single-turbo 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel (125kW @ 405Nm) paired to a six-speed auto, or a twin-turbo 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel (154kW @ 500Nm) paired to a 10-speed auto.
Manual transmissions have been dropped from the new line-up locally.
The single-turbo 3.0-litre V6 diesel (184kW @ 600Nm) with 10-speed auto is available on three models – XLT, Sport, and Wildtrak – and comes with a $3000 price premium over equivalent twin-turbo 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel variants.
The Ford Ranger Raptor has the biggest price increase – up $6100 to $85,490 plus on-road costs – following the switch from twin-turbo 2.0-litre diesel to twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 petrol power (292kW @ 583Nm) for the new model.
The price for the new Ford Ranger Raptor is also $10,500 dearer than the Ford Ranger Raptor’s launch price of $74,990 in 2018.
As Drive has reported previously, every model in the new Ford Ranger line-up will come with the complete suite of advanced safety technology.
Standard safety on all models includes nine airbags (including a centre airbag, driver knee airbag, and passenger knee airbag), as well as radar cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, speed sign recognition, lane-keeping assistance, road-edge detection, blind-zone warning, rear cross-traffic alert, a rear camera and rear parking sensors.
Front parking sensors and a 360-degree camera are available on high-end models.
The new Ford Ranger line-up starts from $35,930 plus on-road costs for the 4×2 XL High Rider Cab Chassis, to $64,190 plus on-road costs for the 4×4 Ford Ranger XLT.
The newly-created Ford Ranger Sport – positioned between XLT and Wildtrak – costs from $63,690 as a twin-turbo 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel and $66,690 with the single-turbo 3.0-litre V6 diesel.
The flagship for the mainstream Ford Ranger line-up – the Ford Ranger Wildtrak – costs from $67,190 as a twin-turbo 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel and $70,190 in single-turbo 3.0-litre V6 diesel.
Drive understands Ford is in the process of winding-down production of the current-generation Ford Ranger to make way for the new model.
The latest sales figures shows Ford dealers are starting to run out of current-generation Ford Ranger models.
However, Ford dealers say there is some stock available if buyers are prepared to shop around, particularly of 3.2-litre five-cylinder diesel models that are about to be discontinued.
Meantime, while exact showroom arrival timing for the new Ford Ranger is yet to be locked in, Ford dealers canvassed by Drive say twin-turbo 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel variants are due to show up before the single-turbo 3.0-litre V6 diesel variants.
As reported last week, at this stage Ford says mainstream Ranger models are due to begin arriving from June, with Raptor due to arrive from July, and Everest from August onwards.
Drive will publish updated timing when more information becomes available.
It is unclear whether Ford will have a complete range of accessories ready from launch.
Ford recently announced an official partnership with Australian off-road accessories specialist ARB.
A spokesman from ARB says more information – including accessory prices – will be published closer to showroom arrivals.
Drive has listed below the complete price list for the 2023 Ford Ranger line-up.
All prices exclude on-road costs such stamp duty, registration, and dealer delivery fees.
All models are diesel with the exception of the Ford Ranger Raptor, which now has petrol power.
A twin-turbo 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel version of the new Ford Ranger Raptor is available overseas but has not yet been confirmed for the Australian market.
Ford says it is monitoring fuel prices – and demand for the petrol-powered Raptor – before it makes a call on whether to add the diesel model to the local Raptor line-up.
Care has been taken to republish Ford Ranger prices accurately, however please check with a Ford dealer for final pricing.
