Re: 2019 Ford Ranger

With a narrow width and easier rollover potential, I think a Ranger Raptor should be offered with roll tubes/bar as an option. Fashion aside, they are actually useful and you give up almost nothing in the bed. Not that a Raptor would be seen all too often on a construction site anyway.

Re: 2019 Ford Ranger

I'm deployed right now in a location with the new Ranger's. We love them! As well as the F-150's. The Ranger we have has decent interior quality, rides really really well, really quite even with the big tires, and spacious for it's size. I'm 6'5 and feel comfortable even with someone sitting behind me. The design is pretty bland as all of you have seen. Some cons is that the interior as it is now wouldn't fail in a comparison to the GM trucks but I'm sure it'll be upgraded before reaching the states. And idk what size engines we have in ours but it's the base one I believe and it's pretty weak. Good for just driving around the base but pedal to the floor and it goes no where. I like the manual trans as well but I doubt that makes it stateside.

The Rangers you drive there are diesel or gasoline models?
In most markets the base engine is a 2.2-liter diesel (148hp/ 158hp), some markets have a 161hp 2.5-liter Duratec gasoline engine.
In Asia, the RWD base (commercial) model can be had with a 123hp version of the 2.2 diesel.

Re: 2019 Ford Ranger

GREAT photo! Thanks, @Topnotch!
found a slightly larger version (Link) crop:
disclaimer: I'm not a truck guy...
wonder if the suspension could be lowered a couple inches on the Ranger?
really = adj.ht.!!
the article talks about new sheetmetal for the Bronco/whatever but seems to be ok with the Ranger getting the RotW skin

imho At LEAST the top (couple) trim(s) need the Bronco-face!!

Re: 2019 Ford Ranger

I know it gets clicks but photographs of camouflaged 3-year old Rangers is absolutely unnecessary at this point. It's basically a couple of grille insert with some ecoboost engines you can't see.

"...If what the launch team guy told me is accurate, the actual retooling work will take 6 weeks, then who knows how long after that they are planning on having everything up and running enough to begin production. I've heard September and I've heard November for Job 1."

Re: 2019 Ford Ranger

Really getting excited about Ranger. It's a world class product as it is, so no worries that they need to change it up just to be different in NA where it won't matter anyway.
