Spied: 2019 Ford Ranger SuperCab?

RangerSuperCab.US03.KGP.ed II

We still don't have official details about the coming 2019 Ford Ranger, but we're beginning to see some hints that Ford is experimenting with several different cab configurations. Our spy photographers just captured one that could be an oversized regular cab or the more conventional extended cab, which Ford calls a SuperCab. We've heard the cab could house a special storage rack for tools or materials for specialty fleet buyers or it could be set up to accommodate commercial buyers looking for a seat delete or wide-open rear-seat area.

Here's the latest report from our spies:

"We got our first piece of evidence suggesting that there will be Ford Ranger SuperCab test trucks being evaluated in Dearborn, Mich. The cab offerings for the U.S.-built Ranger have not been officially confirmed; however, almost all of the U.S.-based on-road testing of the 2019 Ranger have been crew-cab prototypes.

"The Ranger SuperCab sighting comes in the form of a camouflaged body shell resting in a parking area within Ford's Dearborn development campus — an area that serves as something of a burial ground for test vehicles. Vehicles stored here seem to have served their purposes or have been damaged during testing. Camouflaged prototypes, mules and crash-tested vehicles get dropped in the lot before they're carted away — and this graphic-covered Ranger SuperCab shell is the latest one to show up.

"The shell looks like it might have endured some crash or structural testing, as the discarded body is missing portions of its B-pillar, C-pillar and its rear bulkhead — as if the Jaws of Life were involved. We've been on the lookout for a SuperCab Ranger being driven on the streets, which makes this first glimpse of a camouflaged shell particularly interesting.

"The mid-size pickup truck segment is growing increasingly competitive, so Ford's decisions on cab offerings will be fascinating to watch, with massive market implications. If all the Ranger cab-configuration sightings caught in the U.S. are destined for U.S. showrooms, Ford will have the most complete lineup to accommodate all cab segments."

I see hinges behind the rear suicide door. I don't think there is room for a jump seat there. Just an inside storage area.

Nevermind. I don't know what I'm thinking.

You should stop showing these teasers, papa and gms r "shaking" in their boots every time Ford articles show up....it proves to them, that another Ford truck means less GM sales and better tech, more reliability than their nasty Gm twins.

They are awaiting the cement blocks to arrive. Then this Ford will look like so many Fords at trailer parks all over America.

@gms, need I say more? You can hear the trembling in your writing....its ok, I would be worried too having a truck that is fairly new and years behind a 10 year old ford.

There's also a Ford EcoSport CUV seen in camo behind said Ranger cab.

Thank God I drive a Tacoma!

@Nitro : sorry you feel compelled to defend the scene I described earlier. You shouldn't feel ashamed of where you live.

NOW they have my interest. I still think they're too big but we'll just have to wait and see how they equip it.

@Nitro

That looks just like my neighbor's Ranger except somebody stole their concrete blocks.

Extended regular cab would be a nice choice. Those clam doors are more trouble than they are worth.

@papa, GMS, thanks for responding like I knew you would, you guys reek of jealousy....maybe one day Gm will listen to its people like Ford does and make exceptional vehicles

You may think they're more trouble than they're worth, but I wouldn't have them any other way. Those ridiculous half-sized front-hung doors are just blamed inconvenient.

Both front and back doors need to be opened, they extend only 90 degrees, and they add some flex to the cab.

Doesn't matter. Like Stevadore I see the hinges when zoomed in so they appear to be doors afterall.

ummmm... I think they are taking this whole weight savings thing a little too far guys.

I can do without pluch leather interiors, but I probably would like my truck to have wheels and tires on it.

@ Nitro

Defending the twins. We GM Guys can defend the twins because we actually have a truck to defend. You are defending something that isn't even out yet!! And to defend something that isn't even on a rolling chassis is embarrassing. WHAT A TOOL YOU ARE!!

Looks like every body has the same rear side window design, for some reason.

This may be my next truck with papa Jim so jealous it has to be good.

GO FORD!!!!

THIS LITTLE TRUCK IS MAKING GARBAGE MOTORS FAN GIRLYS SHAKING LIKE THE SHAKY SHAKY.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahajajajajajajajajajaj.

I do like those mirror caps,

Great job Ford - the leader in world sales of trucks, the US for 41 years running is now ready to take the crown too with mid-sizers by offering the most options, cab configurations, power plants etc etc!...list too long to mention here :-)

Great time to be a Ford fan & enjoying watching all these shaky GOVT motors fangirls wet their panties with jealousy...HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

@TNT, sorry you have to defend the twins, now you are in the category of the defensive team papa/GMS. You will find you will need to defend them all the time, as GM just cant cut it in the truck world. Your right, no Ranger yet, but as you stated, you are scared and do not want them in the mix. I dont blame you one bit. Defend on.....

TALKING OUT OF THE BUTHOLE AGAIN, COMMON FORD OWNER PROBLEM. HAHAHHAHAHA......................

This is typical of most pickups made for the SE Asia markets. That's all I can say.

HAHAHAHA! That junk is already broke being hauled the the scarp yard!

The storage area behind the seats is for the fire extinguisher.

Looks like all other junk yards.
FULL OF FORDS. Lol

The rules are about to change.......

How rather boorish are your unenlightened pontifications. Seems you a lot about very little. Your manufacturer of choice has a great deal of unfavorable issues pertaining to quality, engineering, product value and esthetics. You would do well to think more and say less, at least until a product comes to market, then your words might have some relevance and you might be perceived as something more than cretin.

@ Nitro

So every time you comment you aren't defending your brand?? I guess driving your ford has made you loose your mind...that's typical. Its ok...we all understand that driving a ford lowers your IQ.

Chevrolets suck. Why u think ford keads in trucks. They are way better than pikes of junk chevrolets. Hurry ford i need a ranger. Sonething i can depend on.

@Mark Wiliams
The configuration is already sold in Australia

@Kenny

Chevy sucks?

Actually dude, your writing is what sucks. Keads? Pikes?

This is like shooting fish in a barrel.

I don't know what I'm thinking.
