2019 Ford Ranger Australia welcome to our web fordtrend.com here we provide various information about the latest Ford cars such as Review, Redesign, Specification, Rumor, Concept, Interior, Exterior, Price, Release Date and Pictures. We hope that the information we provide can help you and make our website become one of your sources in finding the latest car information. Happy nice day! Ford Australia has announced pricing for the improved 2019 Ford Ranger line and the bad news is that the country’s second-most-sold new vehicle is now more expensive across the board.
On the other side, Ford says that the extra team and its new five-year/unlimited-km guarantee makes the popular one-tonner better value than before. We cover Ranger 2019 updates here, so we won’t bore you with all the price/spec details (see the full price list below), but there are a number of key shots. Raptor’s power reaches the main Ford Ranger line for the 2019 year model. Now, that would be an impressive point, if the new 2.0-liter Biturbo engine was not only incrementally more powerful than the 3.2-liter engine next door.
However, updates to Ranger 2019 are not limited to the introduction of a new 10-speed 157kW/500Nm and automatic engine, available as an option in the XLT and WILDTRAK settings. Starting at Horse grade XL (from $27,990 plus costs on the highway), new features include revised suspension melody and new interior trim, while Ute-body models win a tailgate from the Easy-raised torsion-lifting, back camera and park back sensors.
Additional powertrain options include, as before, a 2.2-liter 118kW/385Nm four-cylinder turbodiesel for 4×2 models or a five-cylinder 3.2-liter turbodiesel and 147kW/470Nm for XL 4×4, paired with a six-speed manual or Six-speed automatic.
When uploading to the 4×4/3.2-liter XLS (from $49,190) new front parking sensors are added, as well as standard equipment such as 16-inch alloy rims, Front fog lamps, carpeted floor covering and the option of the Ford Infotainment Sync 3 with a color 8.0 inch touchscreen with satellite navigation, Apple display and Android auto, DAB + digital radio, as well as dual-zone air conditioning control, keyless entry with push-button starter.
The most popular variant in the range, the XLT (starting from $50,290), notes a redesigned front grille, front bumper, HID headlamps with LED daytime lights, keyless entry with button start, and minor interior reviews. The transport kit includes 17-inch alloy wheels, Towbar, chrome exterior highlights, privacy glass, rear bumper with chrome inserts, dual-power exterior mirrors, 8.0-inch Sync 3 navigation system With Apple display and Android Auto, a steering wheel and gear lever, electrochromic rearview mirror, and tire pressure monitoring.
2019 Ford Ranger Engine
The 4×2 and 4×4 traction trains are available, as well as the auto and manual 3.2-liter/six-speed automotive engines or 2.0 liters/ten speeds. Marking Technology Package Option box add inter-urban AEB with pedestrian sensing, park support, traffic signal recognition, driver attention Monitor, adaptive cruise control with front warning Collision, rail-keep support, and high auto beam. Leather finishes and black 18-inch alloy rims are also available as stand-alone options.
When you go up to the WILDTRAK 4×4 variants (from $60,590) you see LED fog lights, an energy-locked tailgate, partial black leather edging and heated front seats added, along with the standard inclusion of the Tech Pack, including AEB Intercity with pedestrian detection, assistance of semi-autonomous parks and recognition of traffic signals.

Again, buyers will be given a choice of 3.2-liter automatic and manual or the new 2.0-liter Biturbo and 10-Speed automatic Combo. Unlocked alloy rims are also available as an option. For the sake of importance, we propose an XLT 4×4 equipped with the 2.0-liter, 10-speed automatic Biturbo engine – a proposition $59,390 before the road costs and trimming of $1650, $600 Prestige paint and the $1700 Tec options boxes. H Pack is marked.
Crunching numbers, a WILDTRAK (without prestige painting) begins in $63,990. Adding all available options to an XLT (including $750 18-inch black alloy rims that are not fitted to the car you see here) makes it more expensive than a WILDTRAK would be, without the back sports bar of that car, load cover Roll-Away, Power lock tailgate or seat powered driver. You’d have to be completely in love with the Chrome aesthetics of the XLT to make that jump, sure?
Under the hood, the XLT and WILDTRAK can be aficionados with a high-performance 2.0-liter engine (an update of $1200 per se) with identical outputs to Ranger Raptor: 157kW to 3750rpm and 500Nm to 1750-2000RPM. That is 10kW and 30Nm up in the standard engine of the 3.2-liter despite dropping a cylinder and 1.2-liters capacity. The extra growl comes courtesy of a sequential turbo system designed to ensure that the torque is turned on early without letting the engine run puff at higher revs without becoming breathable.
Unlike the Raptor and its maximum towing capacity of 2.5 tonnes, the regular Ranger models, whether 2.0 liters, 3.2 liters or 2.2 liters, HI-rider and 4×4, have a rating of 3.5 tonnes (with the XL low-rider rated at 2.5 t). The 10-speed car and its highest transmission ratio, in concert with the smallest and most efficient engine including START-STOP, also benefits fuel consumption with an official rating of 7.4 L/100km compared to the 3.2/6AT and its 8.9 l/100km Figure.
In the real world, the new engine is obviously still a diesel, although one that generates less noise and vibration than the 3.2-liter of five cylinders without being completely silent or smooth. The power is progressive and there is no detectable transition between low-and high-speed turbochargers. This new engine cannot match the Umbria surge of acceleration available on the Volkswagen Amarok V6 with 190kW and 580Nm, but starting from a foot start the smaller optional engine falters less than the five-cylinder hauling never made. Rolling through the city, the 10-speed automatic helps fill the gaps of the relatively narrow torsion band could create otherwise. Do not loiter or absorber between the gears, although in urban environments there are times when the transmission stops longer than it should before choosing the right gear.

It’s not a major issue, but it certainly frustrating like squeezing the throttle, but getting nothing in return for a half second or so. Head to the open road and gradual acceleration tends to be less inspiring than the foot-Start sprints. Despite the transmission changes, the accumulation of additional speed still takes time. Again, there is an incremental improvement compared to the old engine and the six-speed auto, but the Ranger does not break the mold in the Double cab segment.
Although it cannot be deserving of the Raptor identification plate, the new powertrain combo seems an ideal fit for the regular Ranger. A softer, quieter touch, a little more flexible in day-to-day driving, with improvements in fuel consumption. With dual cabs growing in popularity as part-time trading tools and part-time family transportation, the new engine’s choice makes sense. Traditionalists, meanwhile, can hang on the tested and tested 3.2-liter engine and either a six-speed manual or Auto if you prefer.
Since the Ranger formula was already well ordered, Ford did not meddle too much with the rest of the package. There has been a small change in the front suspension to keep the body rolling on the check, but, in the absence of old and new driving back to back, it will be hard to choose and it is claimed to make the biggest difference when loaded. (which we will try in the future.)
2019 Ford Ranger Interior
The interior is similarly low-key in its changes. A new Ebony color scheme takes the place of the earlier softer gray in the XLT specs for a slightly upward appearance, but sturdy plastics remain, along with a pair of TFT screens on both sides of the tachometer giving the Ranger one of the Most complete controller screens in your segment. There is still a PowerPoint on the back, too, however, the level air vents of the face have not entered the Ranger with this update. They see the summer that will surely impact on the comfort of the back seat otherwise decent.
Driving modes are a fairly straightforward issue in 4×4 models: two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, and four-wheel drive switched from the center console. There is no grass/gravel/snow, mud/sand, or rock setting for the four-wheel drive system as you can find on an Everest and certainly no off-road racing mode low as the Raptor Ranger. As previously introduced, Ford’s five-year/unlimited warranty continues, with Ford highlighting a non-exclusion policy depending on the type of purchaser and the use of the vehicle. Updates to Sync 3 maps are included for up to seven years, provided the service is maintained within the Ford dealership network.
On the safety front, all variants include stability control, trailer balancing control, adaptive load control and balancing mitigation. 4×4 variants come with Hill descent control, while all UTE body cars include rear park sensors and a reverse camera. More complete Tech package, optional on XLT and standard in WILDTRAK, add inter-urban AEB with the vehicle and pedestrian protection, driver impairment monitor, adaptive cruise control with front collision alert, Track keep and high beam auto rail warning, traffic signal recognition, and semi-automated self-service parking.
2019 Ford Ranger Australia
That puts the Ranger in a rare company with the Mercedes-Benz X-Class as the only UTEs with AEB available, although it is disappointing that Ford has not offered the system as at least one option in all variants to become a safety front-Runner in the UTE market. Although the changes in the Ranger cannot be immediately obvious at first glance, Ford’s incremental changes must keep sales of the number two vehicle sold from Australia chugging along, keeping the threat of the new Corolla at bay, and Returning to the most successful position he kept this time last year.
Questions that simply cannot be answered yet – such as the reliability and longevity of the new four-cylinder models and their automatic 10-speed accompaniment – remain to be seen. Obviously, Ford is aware of the potential impact that a small-sized engine might have on the buyer’s perception, referring to him only as a turbo, pulling the 2.0-liter elephant into the room.
Australia tends to be a tough test ground for any car, and much fewer UTEs 4×4 worker, so it seems dangerous to implement any changes that might be a step backward. On the surface, at least the changes seem positive. Softer, quieter, more advanced, mixing more lines between built-for-purpose and built for families, the 2019 Ford Ranger-especially in the high-specification XLT setting-seems set to continue its streak as the jewel in the Ford Australia sales crown.
