AMERICAN 2019 FORD RANGER:
HERE IS EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW! (VIDEO)

TFLtruck.com
- Michael Curtis - January 13, 2018

Fresh from the 2018 Detroit Auto Show is the all-new, back-from-the-dead, American 2019 Ford Ranger. Ford’s midsize truck offering has been gone from the U.S. dealership showrooms for about seven years, but with the truck market as hot as it is right now, Ford had to capitalize. We don’t know everything yet, but here is everything that we know so far.

POWERTRAIN
There is only one powertrain option on the 2019 Ford Ranger. That is a 2.3L turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine. This is paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission which sends power to either the rear wheels or a 4×4 system. While Ford has not disclosed the power figures for this exact truck-specific engine, a similar version in the Mustang makes 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. However, the engine will be re-tuned for this truck and may have slightly different numbers. Fuel economy numbers have not been released as of yet...

...The new Ranger comes with a slew of technology features that are seen on many trucks in this segment today. Automatic emergency braking is standard on all trim levels while Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, a Reverse Sensing System and Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage are standard on XLT and Lariat trim levels. Pedestrian Detection and Adaptive Cruise Control are also on the Lariat trim.

The Ranger will come in the usual Ford trim levels: XL, XLT, and Lariat. Furthermore, there will be a number of appearance packages including the Chrome and Sport packages. Two cab options exist as well, a crew cab with a short bed and an extended cab with a long bed. The package that we are most interested in is the FX4 off-road package...

Perfect truck, and a class leader perhaps.

If history is any indication, this body will be around for a decade or two.

Ugh....Knock it off Borg, you know exactly why they did not change the sheet metal yet. So that means you are trolling.

Re: Ranger @ Detroit

10 speeds and an I4 means about 28 mpg.
