2019 Ford Ranger Power and Performance
The 2019 Ford Ranger comes with a 2.3L EcoBoost® engine. It generates 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Its performance partner is a 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission. Whether you’re crawling over rocks or pulling a heavy load, it has the ideal gear ratio to smooth out your ride.
This truck boasts an EPA-estimated 21 city/26 highway MPG. This is thanks in part to the Auto Start-Stop Technology. Whether you’re waiting at a stoplight or taking in the view atop a conquered mountain peak, it will shut down the engine to reduce idling time. Let your foot off the brake pedal and it will automatically start up again.
If you’re hauling your camper out to a remote campsite, the Ranger has a maximum towing capacity of 7,500 pounds when properly equipped. Plus, you’ll have 1,860 pounds of maximum payload, so it will be easy to bring along your backpacks, some provisions, and even some firewood.
Taking on the Trails in a Ford Ranger
When it’s time for an off-roading adventure, the 2019 Ford Ranger is ready for anything. It offers an available 4×4 system. It also includes electronic shift-on-the-fly (ESOF) capability, so you can go from the pavement to a rugged path in a snap.
There’s also the available Terrain Management System™. It comes with four selectable drive modes, including Normal, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, and Sand. You’ll be able to personalize the performance of this truck based on the terrain you’re taking on.
Finally, there’s Trail Control™. It will keep you at a selected speed between 1 and 20 MPH. This will help keep you moving forward while you maintain your focus on tearing up the trail ahead.
You’ll have a wide array of innovative features at your disposal inside the 2019 Ford Ranger. The available SYNC® 3 system comes with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. They’ll put all your favorite apps and music right onto the available 8-inch touchscreen display.
The Ranger also offers the Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology. It comes with a long list of features that will give you more confidence behind the wheel of this pickup. The Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) will warn you when it detects a collision. If you don’t react in time, it may automatically apply the brakes.
Finally, there’s BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System). It will look out for approaching vehicles, so you can change lanes safely. It also includes Trailer Coverage, so you can have that same confidence when towing.
