The 2019 Ford Ranger provides EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 23 mpg combined for 4x2 trucks.
When configured as a 4x4, Ranger returns EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 20 mpg city, 24 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined. This is the best-in-class EPA-estimated city fuel economy rating of any gasoline-powered four-wheel-drive midsize pickup and it is an unsurpassed EPA-estimated combined fuel economy rating.
“Midsize truck customers have been asking for a pickup that’s Built Ford Tough,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “And Ranger will deliver with durability, capability and fuel efficiency, while also providing in-city maneuverability and the freedom desired by many midsize pickup truck buyers to go off the grid.”
Along with 270 hp, Ranger features a standard 2.3L EcoBoost engine that produces 310 lb.-ft. of torque paired with a class-exclusive 10-speed transmission.
Available safety features include Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage, all-new Terrain Management System with Trail Control, and standard FordPass Connect with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot supporting up to 10 devices.
When properly equipped, Ranger achieves 7,500 pounds of gas towing capacity with available tow package and 1,860 pounds of maximum payload to handle all your gear.
Ranger production is underway at the Michigan Assembly Plant. The truck arrives at dealers nationwide starting in January.
