Exterior - 2019 Ford Ranger

The new Ranger is definitely a mid-size pickup, much bigger than the old Ranger that was compact. It runs at nearly the same size as the F-150 of the 90s. As noted above, there are two models available: one with a longer cab and one with four doors. Both models share a wheelbase, and the only major difference is the cab size that depends on the size of the cabin. As a popular truck across the globe, the new model hitting American shores is quite similar in appearance, although upgraded to match today's design standards. This design includes new grilles, headlights, taillights, and a longer hood. The new design also features new bumpers: steel and mounted to the frame directly. Other mid-size pickups feature plastic bumpers.

The bedlights from the F-150 make an appearance on this truck and it also features taillights with a higher-mounted handle. It comes in two exterior packages: Sport and Chrome. The Sport design has a trim modeled after the body. The Chrome design, as the name implies, features chrome shine across the body. There are also three trim levels: XL, XLT, and Lariat. FX4 Off-Road Packages are available for any of these trim levels, with four-wheel drive, a steel skid plate at the top and in the underbody, tires and shocks made for off-road, and Magnetic Grey trim accents.

The base model for the new Ranger is rear-wheel drive. There is the optional upgrade to four-wheel drive that is shift-on-the-fly and not a real 4x4 offering. The Ranger also comes with a two-speed transfer case, Dana electronic locking rear differential, and the company's Terrain Management System. The latter gives the driver complete control over the driving mode, with the available settings as: Normal, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, and Sand. When selecting Mud/Ruts and Sand, 4-High is automatically engaged. However, the Mud/Ruts setting gives maximum power to all four wheels as the Sand mode provides extra slip before the traction control mechanism is engaged.

For the four-wheel-drive models, there is a low-speed off-road cruise control setting called Trail Control. It activates at speeds between 1 and 20 mph with the option of slowing it to a new speed through pressing the brakes. The suspension system found in the Ranger is a dual A-arm that has coil springs in the front and Dana rear axles with leaf springs in the rear. This American model also features a new locking rear differential and power-assisted electronic steering.

Powertrain - Ford Ranger specs near Platteville

The powertrain available at launch is a turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that drives the rear wheels through the 10-speed automatic transmission. This is the identical setup of the 2018 Mustang, with minor adjustments to the gear ratios and tuning to make it truck-ready instead of track-ready. The Rangers available across the globe feature Diesel engine support, which makes it likely that there will be a future model with this offering in America as well. This powertrain setup found across Europe features a turbo-diesel 3.2-liter five-cylinder engine.

Safety - 2019 Ford Ranger dealer

This new Ranger features forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking. There is also a blind spot warning system offered on some models. On the XLT and Lariat models, lane keep assist and lane departure warnings come standard, with automatic cruise control on the Lariat.
