Ranger: The revived Ranger hits showrooms early next year. The midsize pickup, built at the Michigan Assembly Plant, will come with only one engine: a 2.3-liter, EcoBoost mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. It will have three trim levels: XL, XLT and Lariat. Ford will offer two-door SuperCab and four-door SuperCrew configurations and have four- and two-wheel drive for each configuration. A Raptor performance variant is expected in the coming years.
F-150: Ford's profit machine keeps rolling along. Despite redesigned pickups from its top rivals, the F series is poised for a record sales year in 2018. Ford freshened the F-150 this year and added a diesel variant. The next-generation F-150 will appear in 2020. It will include a hybrid model that Ford says can double as a mobile power generator.
Super Duty: Since the Super Duty switched to an aluminum body in 2016, sales have soared. Ford will freshen it in late 2019. Likely updates include a new engine that helps improve performance.
Transit Connect: Ford freshened the small van this year, adding a 1.5-liter EcoBlue diesel engine to the cargo van and wagon body styles. Ford owned a 44.8 percent share of the small-van segment in 2017 and hopes to grow that number by targeting active baby boomers who might be unable to afford a traditional minivan or large crossover. The Transit Connect will be redesigned in 2021 and is expected to be used as Ford's commercial autonomous vehicle.
Transit: The large van will get a freshening in the first half of 2019, likely adding an awd option for better handling. It will be built on Ford's dedicated commercial van unibody platform.
