I have a feeling the general look for the next Ranger is already there in the clay model.

The question: Is the next Ranger for the 2022MY (to be revealed in 2021) or is it for the 2023MY (to be revealed in 2022)? I guess this can hint how final the styling is.

PS: Didn't Ford finalized the basic look of the new Bronco months before the March 2018 teaser image was revealed? We know that the next Bronco will debut in 2020 at the earliest.

Re: 2021 Ford Ranger?

New Bronco is only months away, either late summer or early fall. I think they are timing it's announcement with the hybrid Ranger, as both will share and use same platform.

Bronco will use the next Ranger platform, not the current one.

I think the next Ranger will use an updated version of the current Ranger's chassis.

Based on the clay study, it appears to use the same basic cab with new door skins/skins.

Re: 2021 Ford Ranger?

New Ranger in NA has already had significant changes in chassis, suspension, powertrain and it just launched. I don't know for sure, but considering the timing of Bronco only months away, it is most certainly riding on either the same Ranger platform or a slightly modified version. Certainly not all new or eve significantly new.

Initially reports were that the Bronco would be the first to arrive on the next gen Ranger platform. Many speculating that the next gen was being engineered to accept a V6 whereas the current Ranger was only designed for inline engines.

The next Ranger's chassis is most likely a modified version of the current Ranger's chassis.

Here's a Ranger T6 with a Supercharged V8 conversion.

If a Supercharged V8 fits, maybe a V6 can.

As I understand it Bronco production is set to begin in December of 2020. If the next Ranger is set for 2021 then it makes zero sense for the Bronco to be the last product on an old platform rather than the first on a new platform.

I don't think Ford has confirmed anything yet, but that seems to be the general consensus. From Car and Driver:

"Additionally, it's important to remember that the Bronco will likely be based on the next-generation Ranger platform, so what we are seeing here is very likely doing double duty as an R&D mule for both vehicles, i.e., the new Bronco and the next-gen Ranger. The idea is that the Bronco, now rumored to be coming as a 2021 model, will make its debut on a fresh frame (rumors also persist of a new V-6 engine), and the next-generation Ranger will switch to the new frame and suspension when it is updated a year or two down the line."

"Fitting" as an aftermarket conversion is one thing. Fitting from the factory and passing the necessary crash-testing is something completely different.
