Ford Shows Off 2025 Ranger Plug-In Hybrid


The Ford Ranger gets electrified. The carmaker has announced that its pickup truck will get a plug-in hybrid variant (PHEV) by 2024 with customer deliveries to start in 2025.

The first market to receive the Ranger PHEV is Europe, but Ford has confirmed that the new electrified pickup truck is destined as a global model. 


The Ranger PHEV promises the most torque by combining a turbocharged 2.3-liter gasoline engine with an electric motor and battery system. Final outputs will be confirmed by Ford closer to launch, but as a reference, this means it’ll outpull the turbodiesel V6 and its 600 Nm of torque. It will also be made available in more than just Ranger variant, although for its launch, they showed it off in Wildtrak trim.

In terms of pure electric drive, it will have a range of around 45 kilometers (more than 600 kilometers with a topped up fuel tank), while towing capacity is targeted at 3,500 kilograms.


The truck will also come equipped with the Ranger’s proven four-wheel drive off-road capabilities, five selectable driving modes, and a host of advanced driver safety and driver assist systems.

The Ranger Plug-In Hybrid will also offer Ford’s Pro Power Onboard. This will enable owners to power their high-draw power tools and appliances on a worksite or remote campsite by plugging them into power outlets embedded in both the cargo bed as well as the cabin.

  1. Any mention of the fuel tank capacity? 600km on a full tank is much lower than a standard diesel Ranger. Overall range is important out in the wilderness (maybe ford knows those who will be buying the PHEV will be city dwellers lol)

    1. No news on battery size or fuel tank size, unfortunately. They didn't even give specifics to its power/torque.

    2. Its obvious that the PHEV market will be city dwellers to maximize that electric only range while the HEV crowd will be the typical drives that include highway driving, which is where PHEVs are weakest.

  2. Electric range is quite low, if used in Metro Manila area the range will drop to 20-24 kms and not much benefit.

  4. For the asean i think it would be better to put in the diesel for more efficiency rather than the gas.

  5. It's good it has an electric motor good for a few km. At least buyers can avoid using the reliable ford engine for short distances.
