Trims, Powertrains, and Performance

There are four versions of the 2024 Ranger: XL, XLT, Lariat, and Raptor. All but the Raptor get a standard turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 270 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. For those seeking more power, a turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 with an output of 315 hp and 400 lb.-ft. of torque is optional for the XLT and Lariat. The Raptor, meanwhile, roars with the Ford Performance twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 (405 hp and 430 lb.-ft. of torque). Rear-wheel drive is standard on the XL, XLT, and Lariat, with a part-time four-wheel-drive (4WD) system as an option. The Raptor gets its own special 4WD system with an electronic two-speed transfer case. A 10-speed automatic transmission (exclusive to this segment) completes the powertrain with each engine.

All ‘24 Rangers have the Super Crew cab configuration (four standard doors) and a 5-foot cargo bed. The maximum towing capacity is 7,500 pounds (5,510 for the Raptor), and the maximum payload rating is 1,805 pounds (1,711 pounds with 4WD).

Standard Features

The Ranger XL’s standard equipment roster has fabric upholstery, remote keyless entry with a remote tailgate lock, single-zone manual climate control, an 8-inch digital instrument cluster, LED reflector headlights, halogen fog lights, power side mirrors, easy-clean vinyl floor covering, cruise control, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. The XLT adds LED fog lights, a manual-sliding rear window with privacy glass and a defroster, power-folding side mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a wireless phone charger, a 120V power socket, and 400 watts of in-bed power.

The Lariat is upgraded with proximity keyless entry, leather-trimmed seats (heated in the front row), a heated steering wheel (leather-wrapped), exterior zone lighting, rain-sensing wipers, heated side mirrors, a a 10-way power driver’s seat with memory, an 8-way power front passenger seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button ignition, a 12-inch digital instrument cluster, ambient interior lighting, a universal garage door opener, a power-sliding rear window, trim-specific exterior treatments, and 18-inch wheels.

The Ranger Raptor is in a class of its own, with a list of extra-rugged enhancements. Those amenities include a reinforced boxed frame, front and rear tow hooks, heavy-duty bash plates, a Watts-link rear suspension, locking front and rear differentials, FOX racing shocks, and 33-inch all-terrain tires on 17-inch wheels. As expected, this highly anticipated trim level receives exclusive exterior treatments as well as most of the same standard equipment listed for the Lariat.

Advanced Driver Aids

Every 2024 Ranger gets a rearview camera (an analog version for the LT and a digital version for the other trims) plus an array of Ford CoPilot360 safety technology. All trims get forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and automatic high beams. The XLT and higher trims add blind-spot monitoring (with rear cross-traffic alert and trailer coverage), lane-keeping support, rear parking sensors, reverse brake assist, and driver alert. The Lariat and Raptor also receive active park assist, front parking sensors, adaptive cruise control with lane centering and speed sign recognition, and a surround-view monitor.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The XL and XLT have Ford’s SYNC 4A infotainment system, featuring a 10-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a six-speaker audio system, and voice recognition controls. The XLT and higher also have SiriusXM satellite radio and access to connected navigation. The Lariat and Raptor move up to a 12-inch touchscreen with navigation, HD Radio, and a 10-speaker B&O sound system. All Rangers also get access to FordPass Connect for a Wi-Fi hotspot, vehicle monitoring, and emergency assistance.
