2022 Ford Courier
2022 Ford Courier It’s hard not to think about the Ranchero when the word spreads on a pickup truck based on Ford’s car. Just yesterday we reported on Ford rumors was planning a compact pickup-based body. While it would be nice to revive the name of Ranchero-Ford revived the Bronco, then why not? – A new car and Driver report suggest that the compact pickup could carry the courier name.
According to the publication, Ford applied to the trade-mark the Courier nameplate with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. With the car manufacturer moving away from the sedan and small cars, the company can think outside the box to keep its range from being a bunch of bland crossover vehicles of different sizes. But spokesman Dawn McKenzie refuses to comment on the Courier news. Instead, in a statement sent by email from the company to the publication, she stated that the company is “dramatically expand our North American range with all new vehicles and enter new segments with designs Fresh and white space silhouettes that will position us for even more growth. Car manufacturers always make vague statements about future products, so McKenzie’s diversion is not new.
A compact one-body pickup would slot under the next Ford Ranger, giving the builder a bunch of vans. The new truck should replace the Ford Courier that was sold in various Latin American countries. While the old model rolled on a Ford Fiesta platform, the news we reported yesterday suggests that it will be based on the focus moving forward, perhaps arriving as soon as 2022.
The Ford Courier should use the new three-cylinder 1.5-liter Ford Newfordà three-cylinder turbocharger, making 148 horsepower or 180 hp. This means that a six-speed or eight-speed automatic manual would be available. All the driving wheels would be in the air. Considering that it is straddling a front traction platform, AWD is unlikely but not impossible.

When Ford announced that it was in discontinuity many of its car sales that consumers are moving to crossovers and pickups, people have been a bit shocked by the move. However, without the merger, Fiesta, and Taurus taking over the concession space and the company’s resources, the car manufacturer can now focus on new and exciting consumer products are more inclined to buy. A pickup based on Ford Focus sounds interesting to us.
