The new Ford Ranger 2019 is set to hit our lot of Akins Ford near Atlanta, GA, sometime early in 2019. Off-road enthusiasts will be able to add the FX4 Off-road Package to their new Ranger, which features all-terrain shock absorbers, off-highway tyres, a rack-mounted heavy gauge steel faceplate, sliding plates mounted on Frame, badging FX4, Dana ® AdvanTEK ® front and solid independent rear axles, and an electronic locking rear axle. The 2019 Ranger FX4 OFF-Road package also features Ford’s unique land management system, which allows you to choose from four driving modes: normal, grass/gravel/snow, mud/ruts and sand.
Completing this impressive package is the new Trail control system. This system takes control of acceleration and braking for you as you focus on direction through rugged terrain and low speed. It’s just a cruise control for off-road adventures. Once declared dead, the medium-sized truck segment has been revitalized in recent years by new or updated entries from General Motors, Honda and Toyota. But Ford has been significantly absent, having fired his Ranger in 2011. But now, finally, the Ranger has returned.
The Ford Ranger 2019 debuted at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show about a year after Ford announced the return of the truck to the United States. Ford has actually sold Ranger models internationally since 2011, but insists that the new model presented in Detroit was redesigned to a large extent for the North American market.
On the outside, the Ranger is a rather generic aspect. The flared round wheel arches and a grille that vaguely resembles the larger F-150 are the only real signs of character. Like rival Chevrolet, Ford opted not only to make its medium-sized truck a Mini version of its full-size model. Ranger 2019 will be offered in SuperCab or supercrew configurations, with half tailgate and four full size doors, respectively.

The Ranger will be offered with a four-cylinder EcoBoost turbocharged engine of 2.3 liters, producing 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. The EcoBoost engine will be coupled to the same 10-speed automatic transmission used in the F-150, with standard rear wheel drive or optional four-wheel drive. Since most competitors offer multiple powertrain options, Ford may add other engines to the lineup at a future date.
Horsepower is less than the V6 versions of the Toyota Tacoma (278 hp) and Chevrolet Colorado (308 hp), but Ford offers much more torque than any truck. The Toyota can only gather 265 lb-ft, while the Chevy makes 275. However, Chevy also offers a four-cylinder diesel producing 369 lb-ft (the same figures apply to the colored GMC Canyon Twin). The age of Nissan Frontier V6 produces 261 HP and 281 lb-ft.
Ford claims that the Ranger will have a payload of 1,860 lbs, and a maximum towing capacity of 7,500 lbs when properly equipped. Both figures put the Ranger ahead of most of the other medium sized trolleys, although the Chevy Colorado diesel can tow up to 7,700 pounds.
The main reason for offering a four-cylinder Turbo engine instead of a V6 is the fuel economy. Ford claims that the Ranger will get 23 mpg combined (21 mpg city, 26 mpg road) with rear wheel drive, and 22 mpg combined (20 mpg city, 24 mpg road) with four-wheel drive. These figures put the ranger ahead of the competitors driven by gasoline, although in some cases by a small margin. However, the Chevy Colorado diesel is still the champion of fuel economy in 25 mpg combined (22 mpg city, 30 mpg road) with rear wheel drive, and 23 mpg combined (20 mpg city, 28 mpg freeway) with four-wheel drive.

At the launch, the Ranger will obtain an optional FX4 OFF-Road package, including a land management system derived from the one found on the F-150 Raptor. Like similar systems offered by many other manufacturers, Ford automatically adapts different vehicle configurations for different types of terrain. The FX4 package also includes Trail control, which acts as an off-road cruise control by handling acceleration and braking on rugged terrain. There is still no word of whether America will get the Ranger Raptor performance model already revealed for international markets.

Like the larger Ford trucks, the Ranger will be offered with a number of driver assistance features. The list includes self-contained emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, lane exit warning, blind spot monitoring (which works even with a docked trailer), and adaptive cruise control. The technological features include the Amazon Alexa connectivity available, an integrated Wi-Fi hotspot and compatibility with Apple display and Android Auto.
The Ford Ranger 2019 will start production later this year. The truck will be built at Ford’s Michigan assembly plant in Wayne, along with a new version of the Bronco SUV. Ford dealerships are currently taking orders for the Ranger, with prices starting at $25,395.
