After being absent from the Ford lineup for nearly a decade, the popular Ford Ranger midsize pickup has returned for the 2019 model year. The 2019 Ford Ranger is an exciting addition designed to smoothly shift from commuting to on-the-job towing to weekend road-tripping.
The Ranger’s high-strength steel frame, off-road chassis components, steel frame-mounted bumpers, and powerful EcoBoost® engine enable it to dominate rough roads. The model is also available with an FX4 Off-Road Package. This includes tuned off-road monotube shocks, an exposed steel front bash plate, all-terrain tires, a heavy-duty front skid plate, and a traction-enhancing electronic-locking rear differential.
The Ranger comes standard with an impressive 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine rated at 270 horsepower and a best-in-class 310 lb-ft of torque.* This engine pairs with a 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission to attain best-in-class fuel economy, for the midsize pickup segment.**
The Ranger may be smaller than the F-150, but it is still a mighty performer. It delivers best-in-class gasoline payload and towing rating. When properly equipped, the Ranger has a maximum payload rating of 1,860 pounds and a maximum tow rating of 7,500 pounds.
Along with its impressive capabilities, the Ranger can be well-equipped with advanced technology features like the SYNC® 3 system, FordPass Connect™, a premium B&P Sound System by Bang & Olufsen, and Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility.
You can feel secure while driving the Ranger thanks to its abundant safety features. Standard features include a rearview camera, advanced airbags, traction and stability control, antilock brakes, and even forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. You can also select the available Ford Co-Pilot 360™ suite for even more peace of mind. This system comes with BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System), Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane-Keeping System, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, and more.
Stop by Tropical Ford to experience the diverse amenities and technologies of the 2019 Ranger for yourself. Just be forewarned — you might want to drive it home.
