Join us as we examine the Ford Ranchero and how, like the Maverick, this iconic model could achieve great success. Let’s first understand why the Ford Maverick is such a big deal before we go into the specifics.

Ford first introduced the Ranchero in 1957 as a vehicle that combined the utility of a pickup truck with the comfort and appearance of a car. Due to its Dual Purpose design, it was advertised under the slogan more “than a car more than a truck.”

Priced mid-sized pickup ford first introduced the ranchero in 1957 as a vehicle that combined the utility of a pickup truck with the comfort and appearance of a car due to its dual purpose design it was advertised under the slogan more than a car more than a truck the model’s beginnings can be traced back to a letter an australian woman wrote to ford asking for a

Vehicle to transport her pigs to market on mondays and to go to church and on sundays the model was extremely well liked because it was so distinctive and within two years chevrolet introduced the legendary el camino as a direct rival like the ford maverick the ford wrench aero would have the same platform as the ford escape the ranchero shares characteristics with

The most recent ford focus which you’ll notice if you’re familiar with ford’s international lineup despite being a well-liked hatchback it is no longer sold in the american market it will borrow the ford escapes basic design much like the maverick but feature the ford focuses more compact car light cab the reputed ford courier truck will reportedly be replaced by the

Unibody ford ranchero ford currently has a successful formula so we anticipate that a 2.5 liter hybrid engine with 191 horsepower will be available and after that they ought to offer the 250 horsepower 2.0 liter ecoboost turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine all models typically come with front wheel drive as standard equipment with all-wheel drive available

As an upgrade with the ecoboost engine ford’s 2.5 liter hybrid engine performs admirably getting 33 miles per gallon on the highway and 42 miles per gallon in the city according to epa u.s department of energy testing the maverick which has the same engine achieves a combined gas mileage of 37 miles per gallon the maverick has a 4 000 pound towing capacity and a

1564 pound maximum cargo capacity we believe the ranchero will at least reach these numbers given the limitations of the supply chain and the cost of raw materials due to the ford f-150 skyrocketing demand ford had to raise the price of some trims by 17.5 percent in order to stay profitable although it hasn’t been confirmed the 2023 maverick is anticipated to cost

Two to three thousand dollars more than the ranchero when it goes on sale this means that the ranchero could replace the maverick as the cheapest ford utility vehicle when it does jim farley the ceo of ford is dedicated to bringing down costs he frequently asserted that ford’s goal is to inspire a revolution and provide electric and hybrid vehicles to the majority

Not just a select few the ford ranchero the most affordable ford utility vehicle in their lineup will fit perfectly under the ford maverick thanks to its small body two-door design and lack of back seats there is no doubt that the ranchero will enjoy the same success as the maverick if the company can deliver one at these prices although we don’t anticipate it to

Be as opulent as the current escape you can count on a functional interior with enough room for the driver and two passengers along with bluetooth apple carplay android auto and navigation a standard feature set will also include an 8-inch touchscreen and fabric seating given that the maverick has five seats and the ranchero doesn’t they could sit next to each

Other without much opposition although there is a significant difference the new model falls into a different category ford first introduced the ranchero in 1957 and as we mentioned chevy unveiled the el camino its main rival two years later due to one key distinction the el camino gained enormous popularity and went on to become much more recognizable than the

Ranchero it was advertised as a flatbed equipped muscle car it was a great car to own and it still is today after shiverly stopped making the el camino in 1988 it quickly rose to the status of a collector’s car if the story were to be told in the present it might be updated to reflect the times as rumors abound that chevrolet is keeping an eye on things chevy

Is currently working on a re-release of the chevy montana their take on a small sized unibody pickup that is economical to own and reasonably priced to buy ford released the maverick in 2021 to a sellout success if ford can demonstrate that there is sufficient demand for the unique ford ranchero design it wouldn’t be unexpected to see a new el camino into the

Market toyota is closely observing ford’s recent home run launches as well one of the spaces we’re looking at that won’t be short term is where the compact pickup truck is going you have a santa cruz and maverick on the market said bob carter executive vice president of sales for toyota motors north america quickly compare the maverick and the santa cruz but we

Don’t think they’re comparable for three main reasons however it could be a possibility and something we continue to consider despite having dimensions that are comparable to those of the maverick the santa cruz is more expensive twenty four thousand four hundred and forty dollars or nearly five thousand more is the santa cruz entrance fee it costs a lot more

Money the base trim of the santa cruz is more expensive than the brand new xlt maverick the ford maverick has significantly better fuel economy which is the second justification since people need a car that is not only affordable to buy but also economical to own as gas prices continue to rise in comparison to its rival the santa cruz which only manages 21 miles

Per gallon in the city and 27 mpg on the highway the ford maverick achieves an astounding 42 miles per gallon in the city and 33 mpg on the highway the santa cruz and maverick both appear more like pickups than cars which is the third reason for choosing them over each other this is amplified by the maverick’s bed size which is 4.5 feet long and 4.5 feet wide

From top to bottom making it practical for hauling materials anyone comparing the two with pickup utility in mind would undoubtedly choose the maverick because the santa cruze is four feet long and 4.5 feet wide but narrows to just 3.55 feet wide over the wheel wells it’s a given that the ford maverick and the santa cruz are simply too dissimilar to compete the

Ford ranchero and the santa cruz are more likely to end up being rivals jim farley is committed to transforming ford from a business that has seen better days into one with an exciting modern future his goal is to compete aggressively in the areas where they have an advantage ford has been able to create and deliver products that truly excite its customers under
