The 2024 models of the Ford Ranger and Everest have experienced several changes in specifications, impacting both vehicles as they continue to be manufactured in Thailand.

The modifications include the removal of certain features, alongside the introduction of new options, affecting both models upon their arrival in Australia.

For the 2024 model year, the Ford Ranger and Everest have undergone adjustments to their features.

Notable changes include the discontinuation of the Everest's hands-free power tailgate, although a standard power tailgate without a kick sensor remains available on selected trims.

Similarly, the Ranger has seen the removal of features such as Ford MyKey, along with certain options no longer available on the Raptor variant.

However, both models also feature additions to their equipment list. New inclusions for the Everest are zone lighting and stand-off roof rails, now standard on lower trims which were previously only available on higher trims.

For the Ranger, enhancements include the implementation of an automatic stop/start system on nearly all models, with the exception of the XL, which now comes with a standard heavy-duty suspension.

These revisions also extend to the versatility and towing capabilities of both models.

Options such as the Pro Trailer Backup Assist are now available on more trims of the Ranger, and the Flexible Rack System, once exclusive to the Platinum trim, is now optional on additional models.

Similar options have been made available for the Everest across various trims.

These updates are part of a broader trend where car manufacturers adjust vehicle specifications in response to supply chain factors and market demand.

This strategy is designed to maintain production flexibility and align product offerings with changing market conditions.
