2019 Ford Ranger Preview

 

Intro

The Ford Ranger is back for 2019 after an eight-year hiatus. This mid-sized pickup stands out for its style and composition: unlike its bigger F-150 sibling, which has an aluminum body, the 2019 Ford Ranger has a body of steel. Its powerplant is a four-cylinder 2.3-liter turbo engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. With these things going for it, the Ranger will give its competition - the Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Toyota Tacoma - a run for their money. It will also be built right in Michigan, and that alone will make many truck buyers happy.


Style

Ranger buyers will be able to choose two-wheel or four-wheel-drive, with three trims available: the XL, XLT, and Lariat. The available options groupings are highlighted by the FX4 Off-Road Package, which includes skid plates, all-terrain tires, a reinforced suspension, and more to bring new meaning to the slogan Built Ford Tough. There will also be Chrome and Sport appearance packages.


Safety

Active safety technology has come a long way since we last saw a brand-new Ford Ranger, and this generation is packed with those crash-avoiding features. A lane-keeping system, and pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise technologies are all available to greatly enhance the safety of everyone in and around this truck.


Under the Hood

The Ford Ranger 2019 will feature a 2.3-liter EcoBoost (turbo) four-cylinder engine, connected to a 10-speed automatic transmission equipped with Start & Stop technology. Although the details aren't clear yet, Ford attests that this engine will perform like a V6, but with the efficiency of two fewer cylinders.


Technology: Rugged drivers need their technology as much as anyone else, and the new Ranger will deliver. It will come equipped with the FordPass Connect system, which includes its own Wi-Fi hotspot that works within a 50-foot range of the vehicle and can connect as many as ten devices. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone capability are standard, and a navigation system can be added.
