The 2019 Ford Ranger is Here
Ford is starting the new year right with one of the strongest competitors in the midsize pickup class. With new additions to an old favorite, you get the perfect combination of practicality and power with the 2019 Ford Ranger.
As the first new model available in the United States since 2012, the 2019 Ford Ranger has plenty of things to get excited about. Competing against the Toyota Tacoma and the Chevy Silverado in the midsize pickup class, the Ranger takes several best-in-class positions.
This year’s Ranger comes standard with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost gasoline engine, but that’s nothing to scoff at. The truck beats V6 competitors in its class to provide 270 horsepower and a best-in-class 310 lb-ft torque. This is complimented by a class-leading 1,860-pound maximum payload capacity, as well as a 7,500-pound towing capacity that beats out the Toyota Tacoma’s 6,400 and the gas model Chevy Silverado’s 7,000.
Despite the 2019 Ford Ranger having such a powerful engine, Ford still manages to provide drivers with the most fuel-efficient gas-powered midsize pickup truck. The Ranger has EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 23 mpg combined. The 4×4 model returns ratings of 20-24-22 to also ranks as the best-in-class gas-powered four-wheel-drive midsize truck.
The Ford Ranger’s off-roading capabilities don’t shy from adventure either. Drivers will be able to utilize the Ford Terrain Management System, allowing them to adjust the Ranger’s traction control to handle different conditions. Options include “Normal,” “Grass/Gravel/Snow,” Mud/Ruts,” and “Sand”.
A comfortable driving experience is a top priority with all Ford vehicles, and that’s no different in the new Ford Ranger. The interior welcomes drivers with bolstered and well-cushioned seats that make the difference on long drives or daily commutes. With enough space for five people, the entire family can come along for the ride.
The Ranger is designed with innovative technology to keep you safe on the roads as well, namely the class-exclusive Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage. FordPass Connect is also an option on the 2019 Ranger, giving you and your family access to a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 devices. An optional 8-inch infotainment system, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility makes the Ford Ranger a great choice for optimal road trip entertainment.
