According to rumors, a compact universal pickup truck will be introduced in 2022. It is possible that he will receive the name Ranchero in honor of the model, which was popular in 1979 in the US automotive market.

For quite some time now it is known that the American company Ford plans to reduce its model range in the United States – the automaker wants to focus on the production of pickup trucks, crossovers and SUVs. Why are these types of cars in the current leadership of the company in the priority? It’s simple, in recent years they are very popular among motorists around the world.

Of the usual models will remain only a compact Focus and the legendary sports coupe Mustang. And the Focus will be offered only in all road versions of Active, which by the way is already available for the automotive markets in Europe. As for the mid-size Fusion sedan, then this car will eventually disappear from the model range of the American company. However, there is information that this name can go to future competitor Japanese Subaru Outback.

In addition, Ford is going to revive its old Bronco SUV and introduce new versions for the Ranger pickup and the Explorer crossover to meet the high demand of customers for these types of cars.

According to new data received from journalists of the edition of Automobile Magazine, the company plans to develop another new compact pickup truck, which will be built on the basis of Focus 4th generation. In the current model range of the brand new product will be a step below the pickup Ranger.

If the data is correct, then such a pickup will be presented in early 2022. According to the same source, serial production for the US market will be established at the company’s plant in Mexico. It is expected that the car will be offered first for Brazil. It is not yet clear how the car will be called.
