Ranger pick-up truck returns to Ford lineup

All-New 2019 Ranger Fact

Ford Motor Co. returned to the midsize pickup truck market with the 2019 Ford Ranger, bringing back the vehicle at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit following an eight year absence from the USA market.

The new Ranger will start arriving in North American dealerships in early 2019 and be assembled at its Wayne, Michigan, factory in suburban Detroit.

Ford eliminated the Ranger compact truck from its USA lineup in 2011 because, it said, customers weren't interested enough in small trucks to sustain the business.

Analysts have said Ford might cut into F-150 sales by releasing the Ranger in the USA, but Ford executives have said F-150 shoppers are typically completely different from those who'd look to buy a Ranger.

The US version of the 2019 Ford Ranger.

Our current 2.2-litre four-cylinder and 3.2-litre five-cylinder turbo diesel engines will likely remain, with a few tweaks, but the range-topping Ranger Raptor, to be unveiled in Bangkok next month, will be powered by a new 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel four-cylinder engine producing around 150kW and 470Nm in front of a 10-speed automatic.

The new Ranger will come with both SuperCab and SuperCrew Cab options, offering both a two and four-door configuration.




Ranger is designed for a new generation of midsize truck customers who head off-road to recharge. It has been modified to pass USA safety standards and suit customer preferences. "When you pair that with its 10-speed transmission, you've got one of the most versatile, powerful and efficient powertrains in the segment".

Ford also offers customers an FX4 Off-Road Package with the Ranger, which provides off-road-tuned shocks, all-terrain tires, a frame-mounted heavy-gauge steel front bash plate, frame-mounted skid plates, and FX4 badging.

At this time no fuel economy projections have been released by Ford, but with the combination aluminum and steel construction, the numbers should prove to be positive.

Ranger incorporates smart driver-assist, passenger convenience and connectivity technologies.

The Ranger also will have a blind-spot information system with sensors that can extend their line of sight to the back of a trailer up to 33 feet long.

The US version of the Ford Ranger also takes a big step forward in safety; automatic emergency braking will be made standard across all models, with the system extending to pedestrian protection on higher-cost models.

CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa come as standard, while it'll also offer a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. "And that's before we introduce it in the biggest truck market in the world, which is the United States".
