Ford Ranger Price Still A Mystery

  • All-New 2019 Ranger Fact

The new-for-2018 Ford Ranger looks largely unchanged from the model already on sale in Australia - the body is the same since launch seven years ago. Ford stopped making the Ranger model in 2011 and threw all its truck resources into its popular Ford F-150. What we do know is that we are at the falling-in-love stage of the marketing push, so Ford has rolled out its consumer site for the truck with photos of young, active, happy people doing young, active, happy outdoorsy things in their 2019 Ford Rangers.

The truck will also feature a 16-valve designed 2.3-liter gasoline-fired EcoBoost engine equipped with twin-scroll turbocharger, a forged-steel crankshaft and connecting rods, plus chain-driven dual overhead cams. The 2019 Ford Ranger will come in either SuperCab or the larger SuperCrew cab.

He later added that the midsize truck will come with a steel frame, as "real trucks don't have fascias". But to meet USA safety standards and customer expectations, the frame was reinforced with high-strength steel. "When you pair that with our 10-speed transmission, you've got one of the most versatile, powerful, and efficient powertrains in the segment". For the moment, the most beastly iteration of the 2019 Ranger will be the FX4 Off-Road Package, with its beefier tires, bash and skid plates, and off-road-tuned shocks.

Ford said it expects the Ranger to have best-in-class payload capacity but wouldn't divulge any details on power, fuel economy, dimensions or weight. It has a terrain management system that automatically adjusts the transmission and vehicle controls for driving in snow, mud or sand.

The FX4 Off-Road Package introduces Fords all-new Trail Control technology.

Weekend weather: More snow and rain followed by sun
A blustery northwest wind may have gusts as high as 25 miles per hour adding to the bite of the plummeting air temperatures. Wind chills at the Billings Logan International Airport had dropped into the low single digits by 6:30 a.m.


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

Other goodies on mention include assistant features like forward collision warning with auto braking, blind spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist and post-collision braking. The system will be standard on the XLT and Lariat trims.

The infotainment system will feature Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa.

Inside, the cabin appears fairly unchanged, with the same 8.0-inch Sync3 infotainment and dual-digital TFT driver instrument panel shown, but Amazon's Alexa personal assistant and 4G LTE for 10-spot WiFi will be offered in United States models. The company designs, manufactures, markets and services a full line of Ford cars, trucks, SUVs, electrified vehicles and Lincoln luxury vehicles, provides financial services through Ford Motor Credit Company and is pursuing leadership positions in electrification, autonomous vehicles and mobility solutions.
