Problems with the Electrical System

As a newer model, the Ford Ranger should have everything working in harmony for a smooth ride. Yet, drivers are finding it is full of electrical system glitches.

One review on the KBB website says, “The most unwanted, constant annoying features of auto-engine shutoff (at every stop sign/light), ‘check the rear seat’ alarm (every time you get out), have no way to be permanently turned off. Auto-engine shutoff can be temporarily switched off, but must be repeated every time you start the engine. These ‘features’ are a frequent reminder to hate it, particularly the back seat alarm. Almost like a subversive designer deliberately sabotaged the truck with a feature that, every time you get out, says, ‘hey, don’t forget to hate this truck, bitterly.’ Engine sounds like a mix between a vacuum and a lawnmower. I’m an average sized guy and consider the cabin cramped. I miss my Ram 1500. Let’s put it that way.”

Currently, Ford doesn’t have manufacturer communications about the Ranger’s electrical issues. At this time, the automaker is probably attempting to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes, showcasing how magnificent this truck is. However, anyone familiar with the recent issues that other Ford trucks have knows that this model can’t be much different. It’s only “built” for one adventure and that’s a trip to the junkyard.

Problems with the Structure

When it comes to initial reports on the 2022 Ford Ranger, even automotive publications see where it lacks.

Here’s how Car and Driver reviewed the Ranger. “Bland cabin design, other rivals offer more off-road prowess, base model lacks modern infotainment features.”

Overall, it’s become evident that Ford has no business making this smaller truck. Maybe the company should have left well-enough alone with the F-Series of trucks that continue to be the bestselling on the road. All Ford is doing now is pissing customers off and causing them to jump brands once and for all.
