Introducing the New 2019 Ford Ranger
It’s been a while since Ford has offered a mid-size pickup truck in the states. However, this segment is getting an exciting new option with the return of the Ford Ranger — which you can test-drive now at Packey Webb Ford.
The 2019 Ford Ranger boasts a rugged design that is similar to the third-generation Ranger T6, a mid-size truck that is sold all over the world. The new Ford Ranger features a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder that is exclusive to this new US model. This engine is paired with the same 10-speed automatic transmission used in the Ford F-150. This powertrain sets the 2019 Ford Ranger apart from the Ranger T6, as does a special suspension tuning and bold steel front bumpers on every trim.
The performance and design decisions for the new 2019 Ford Ranger were made with the adventurous customer in mind. While mid-size models are often used as work trucks in the rest of the world, Ford anticipates that the U.S. market will continue to choose the full-size Ford F-series as the workhorse. As such, the Ford Ranger is being designed as capable, adventure-ready truck to be enjoyed off the clock. Still, with a maximum payload of 1,860 pounds and a towing capacity of 7,500 pounds, the new 2019 Ford Ranger is ready for both work and play.
