The Ford Ranger is Coming Back!

2019 Ford Ranger Features and Release Date 

Since the Ford Ranger was discontinued in 2011, the appetite in America for midsize pickup trucks has increased, with the Chevy Colorado and Toyota Tacoma having successful runs over the last few years. Ford recognized this demand, so they are reintroducing the Ranger for the 2019 model-year, and with its combination of a powerful engine, high-strength steel body, off-road capabilities and new advanced technologies, the Ranger is better than ever. 

Design Features of 2019 Ford Ranger 

The 2019 Ford Ranger, with an expected release date of early 2019, is built to maximize strength. It features a high-strength steel frame and front and rear bumpers, and was put through the same rigorous testing as the Ford F-150. At the front, the raked grille and windshield give the Ranger an aggressive look, while improving aerodynamic performance. The rear features a stamped Ranger nameplate, and if you have towing needs, you can get the integrated trailer hitch.

2019 Ford Ranger Performance

The engine is mated to a 10-speed transmission. If you’re looking to head off the beaten path, you can get the optional Off-Road Package, which comes with the Terrain Management System, all-terrain tires and off-road-tuned shocks.
