SPIED: 2019 Ford Ranger Regular Cab

Regular Cab Variant Spotted for the First Time

Today we got a close, albeit cloaked look at the expected 2019 Ford Ranger—but in the unexpected form of a Regular Cab work truck. The vehicle, shot here by our ace photographers, was being tested at a supplier in Michigan. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the 2019 Ranger caught testing, but this is the first time we’ve laid eyes on a dedicated Regular Cab work truck variant.

The prototype photographed has a two-door design, a first in our stalking of the 2019 Ranger. Globally, the Ranger is one of many work-oriented trucks, so it might make sense for Ford to bring this variant to the United States when it is revealed.
Further, the Chevrolet Colorado, Nissan Frontier, and the Toyota Tacoma, all of which are in the same segment as the future Ranger, are not available in this cab configuration; so in theory, Ford would be the only manufacturer in the segment to bring a Regular Cab to market. If it makes it to market.

Given Ford’s trailblazing efforts in the past, we wouldn’t put it past the Blue Oval to be at the forefront of the light Regular Cab work truck market.
The test subject was caught wearing its new front end, which will both refresh the Ranger design overseas and serve as the design for the new-to-the-States Ranger. Also showcased are the no-frills headlights; they lack any sort of C-shaped LED definition, unlike most of the Ford truck family.
The undercarriage couldn’t look cleaner, which could suggest the truck is a fresh prototype, and maybe one of the last final prototypes before production. This is all speculation of course, but the North American International Auto Show due date is fast approaching. Will Ford offer its newest truck in a bare, work truck trim? The answer could be right in front of our eyes.
