Ford has announced the upcoming release of the 2025 Ranger Plug-In Hybrid, expanding its lineup of midsize pickups. This new model is set to arrive in early 2025 and offers a zero-emission range of over 28 miles. The plug-in hybrid version of the Ranger aims to provide the same towing, payload, and off-road capabilities as its traditional counterparts.
The powertrain of the Ranger PHEV combines a turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, an electric motor, and an undisclosed capacity battery. Although Ford did not release specific numbers, they did promise that the plug-in hybrid system will deliver “more torque than any other Ranger.” The targeted EV-only range of over 28 miles is comparable to the Kuga PHEV, which utilizes a 14.4 kWh battery pack.
The introduction of the Ranger Plug-In Hybrid is an exciting development for Ford as they continue to push towards a more sustainable future. With the ability to operate for significant distances on electric power alone, this hybrid pickup offers a practical solution for those looking to reduce their environmental impact without compromising on capability.
While Ford has yet to disclose detailed specifications or pricing for the 2025 Ranger Plug-In Hybrid, the announcement serves as a promising indication of the brand’s commitment to incorporating electrified options into their vehicle lineup. As the automotive industry continues to evolve, Ford remains at the forefront, offering innovative solutions that cater to the needs of a changing world.
