Review QuickTakes: 

Ford offers four different sizes of pickup trucks. The 2022 Ford Ranger is the midsize model, slotting between the small Maverick and the large light-duty F-150. Styles include an extended cab (SuperCab) with a 6-ft. cargo bed and a crew cab (SuperCrew) with a 5-ft. cargo bed. A turbocharged four-cylinder engine and an automatic transmission are standard, together powering the rear wheels. A four-wheel-drive system is optional.

2022 Ford Ranger Configurations

Ford offers the 2022 Ranger three core trim levels. Each is available with option packages that modify the styling, increase the off-roading capability, or both:

  • Ranger XL — The Ranger XL is the base model, but that doesn’t mean it’s basic. Setting aside its 16-inch steel wheels, the XL includes a powerful engine, an automatic transmission, air conditioning, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, cloth seats, an 8-way manually adjustable driver’s seat, connected services with available Wi-Fi access, and forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking.
  • Ranger XLT — This popular version of the Ranger has 17-inch aluminum wheels and nicer exterior trim, plus interior carpeting, upgraded cloth seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and several additional infotainment and safety technologies. Highlights include an 8-inch touchscreen display, smartphone mirroring, satellite radio, blind-spot warning with rear cross-traffic warning, and lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assistance.
  • Ranger Lariat — Lariats add a little luxury with 18-inch aluminum wheels, chrome exterior trim, ambient interior lighting, leather upholstery, heated and power-adjustable front seats, and keyless entry with push-button engine starting.

What’s New for the 2022 Ford Ranger?

Fans of the 1990s-era Ranger Splash will be happy to see it return as a package upgrade with SuperCrew XLT and Lariat trim levels. Unfortunately, the flareside box is missing, but otherwise, the new 2022 Ranger Splash reflects youthful design through gloss black exterior detailing, orange accents, a graphics package, and unique matte-black 18-inch wheels. Interiors have orange contrast stitching. Splash Limited Editions will be available all year, too, in batches of a few hundred trucks at a time.

In other news, Ford downgrades the XL STX Special Edition model’s wheels, shrinking them from 18-inch designs in black with a machined lip to a new black 17-inch design. In addition, Lariat models get a standard universal garage door opener this year, and a new Hot Pepper Red paint color is available.

Ford Ranger Competitors for Year

During the past five years, the midsize pickup truck segment has grown. In addition to Ford’s revival of the Ranger, the Honda Ridgeline reappeared, and Jeep resurrected the Gladiator nameplate for use on a pickup version of the Wrangler. The long-standard stalwarts in the segment include the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, Nissan Frontier, and Toyota Tacoma.

My first word was “car.” That’s what I’m told, anyway. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with them. The design. The engineering. The performance. And the purpose. I’m a car enthusiast who loves to drive, but I’m also most interested in the cars, trucks, and SUVs that people actually buy. Anybody can tell you that a sports car is fast. What you need to know is whether or not you should buy that new SUV, and why. My life purpose is to help you make that decision.
