Ford is one of the most iconic car manufacturers in the entire world. A specialty from underneath its vast umbrella is the pickup truck. As for the class of 2019, this year’s version of the Ford Ranger is one of the most impressive compact pickup trucks out on the current market. When fully analyzing the comprehensive scope of the car and all it has to offer, there’s a lot to like.
For one, the prospective person buying/leasing the vehicle will have plenty of choices. All three models are broken down by having a SuperCab 6-foot box, or a SuperCab 5-foot box. The XL base model begins at $24,300. Following in its footsteps is the XLT ($27,940) and the Lariat ($32,210).
The only available engine for all models is the 2.3-Liter four-cylinder EcoBoost. It possesses an impressive 270 HP and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. As a base model, these metrics are very good. For all three models, approximated gas economy includes 21 miles-per-gallon in city driving, and 26 miles-per-gallon on the highway. Electric 10-speed automatic transmission is also available. The Ranger in total can tow up to 7,500 pounds. This is a boon for those who work in the construction industry — or are constantly transporting items.
There are available elements which enable the car to function quite aptly as an off-road vehicle. There are tires which cater directly to this sort of driving. Duly, skid plates, off-road-tuned suspension, and crawl control can be purchased.
The base model as a whole comes with a 4.2″ display screen, six speakers, a rearview camera, forward-collision warning, and automatic braking (among other things). Of course, add-ons/more expensive models will include other specifics (such as leather trimmed seats, rear parking sensors, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, and automatic high beams).
The 2019 Ford Ranger is a bold, brash, and reliable car. For those who love pickup trucks, this is yet another car in the long line of highly productive Ford vehicles.
