2022 Ford Ranger prices rise $530 across the board

The MSRP calculation that’s going on at Ford right now is so fluid that we’re not sure if anyone at Ford can keep up with it. It won’t help to look at Ford’s configurator, apparently. We recently posted about more price hikes planned for a range of Ford models on Feb. 15, including a $1,500 surcharge for all finishes of the F-150 except for the Raptor, which is up $3,300. The prices of some vehicles have changed, but at the time of writing, the prices of the F-150 have not. Ford did not respond to our request for comment. However, members of the Gen14F-150 forum who originally posted the dealer memo about price increases came back to say that their dealer confirmed the pickup’s new suggested retail price.

That preamble brings us to the 2022 Ranger, which wasn’t included in the dealer memo we were just talking about. Ford Authority, a trusted source of Blue Oval information, wrote last week about how the 2022 Ranger is already costing $215 more, as well as a $100 increase in the destination surcharge to $1,295. But then again, Ford is dancing so fast on the calculator that Ranger’s suggested retail price is already double the increase the Ford Authority listed a few days ago. That means every new Ford midsize pickup is up $430, plus the $100 destination surcharge, for a total increase of $540 over its most recent 2021 price. According to the Ford configurator, Ranger prices are :

4×2

  • XL 4×2 SuperCab 6 ft. bin: $26,795
  • XL 4×2 SuperCrew 5 ft. box: $29,195
  • XLT 4×2 SuperCab 6 ft. bin: $30,845
  • XLT 4×2 SuperCrew 5 ft. box: $33,020
  • Lariat 4×2 SuperCab 6 ft. bin: $34,885
  • Lariat 4×2 SuperCrew 5 ft. box: $37,060

4×4

  • XL 4×4 SuperCab 6 ft. bin: $30,650
  • XL 4×4 SuperCrew 5 ft. box: $33,050
  • XLT 4×4 SuperCab 6 ft. bin: $34,545
  • XLT 4×4 SuperCrew 5 ft. box: $36,720
  • Lariat 4×4 SuperCab 6 ft. bin: $38,585
  • Lariat 4×4 SuperCrew 5 ft. box: $40,760

The new pricing places the Ranger $165 above the base Chevrolet Colorado Work Truck with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder. However, the Ranger comes in $1,085 below the Colorado WT with the 3.6-liter V6, which is a better comparison for output, the Ranger’s four-cylinder EcoBoost that delivers 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque through a 10-speed transmission, the Colorado V6 with 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft shifted through an eight-speed manual transmission.

Price changes aside, we expect the Ranger to settle for special packages until it makes way for the next-generation 2023 pickup. Ford has already announced the return of the Splash package for the 2022 Ranger, the Splash will soon be joined by the 750 units of the Snow Edition, exclusive to the Lariat trim level, 500 units of the Forest Edition for the XLT trim and 500 units copies of the Sand Edition, also for the XLT.
