The 2019 Ford Ranger: Mightier Than It Looks

The 2019 Ford Ranger: Mightier Than It Looks

While the Ford Ranger has long been known as a run-around truck, the 2019 models have taken it to the next level with improved suspension, off-roading capabilities, and a powerful engine. The Ranger is ready to leave the pavement behind and head down the trails. With an increased payload and off-road packages available, the 2019 Ford Ranger is truly adventure-ready.



The 2019 Ford Ranger is powered by a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. Like the larger F-150, the Ranger’s engine is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission that puts out 270 horsepower and gets 310 pound-feet of torque. The floor-mounted shifter has an “S” mode, which aids in revving and downshifting.



The Ranger can handle a maximum payload of 1,860 pounds and can tow up to 7,500 pounds and the suspension tuning, shocks, and springs ensure a smooth ride. Steering with heavy payloads is made easy thanks to the electric-assist rack-and-pinion.


If you’re big into heading down the trails, choose the off-road-oriented FX4 package, which is available on all trim levels. The package includes skid plate protection and omits the low air dam. An electronic locking rear differential completely locks the axle, giving you better traction. This feature comes with the FX4 package and is also available as a separate option on all models.


While it may have a smaller footprint than the larger trucks available on the market, the 2019 Ford Ranger is not to be overlooked. With plenty of power under the hood as well as the ability to haul your toys, this truck is ready to take on anything you throw its way.
