An all-new Ford Ranger coming to North America? Yes, Ford will be introducing a new mid-sized pickup truck that they claim will deliver best-in-class payload, gas torque and towing capability.
The 2019 Ford Ranger is offering a standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost® that produces 270 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque – the most engine-turning power of any gas engine in the midsize pickup segment, including V6 engines from competitors.
Paired with a class-exclusive 10-speed transmission, Ranger features a unique combination of power and capability that only comes from a truck that’s Built Ford Tough.
Anchored by a high-strength steel frame and robust solid rear axle with Hotchkiss suspension, Ranger can conventionally tow more than any gas engine truck in its class – 7,500 pounds when equipped with the tow package and a trailer brake controller.
Combine that with the Ranger’s 1,860 pounds of maximum payload, we are talking about a serious contender in the midsize pickup market.
