Ford’s president of global markets, Jim Farley, recently confirmed the company is indeed building a new unibody truck that will be more affordable and smaller than the Ranger. Automotive News relayed the info from the Deutsche Bank Global Auto Industry Conference in Detroit, where Farley told attendants that Ford has been “investing in more affordable versions of our truck business” and to “expect new nameplates below where we compete today.” ‹ Previous Next › Ford is building an electric F-150, too, besides a hybrid versionFarley didn’t give a release date or much in the way of details, but last year reports surfaced suggesting the new Ford product will be based on the same platform as the Focus, and likely hit North American markets in 2022. You don’t have to be an expert at reading between the lines to figure out where the new pickup will fall in the lineup. Since the lighter, Fiesta-based Ford Courier went out of production in 2013, the midsize Ranger has stood as the most affordable and smallest Ford pickup, starting at $30,969 in Canada for the 2019 model-year. It follows that this new mini-truck truck entity will be less than that.RELATEDlast_img
