The 2019 Ford Ranger is smaller than most full-size pickup trucks, ans smaller trucks like the Ford Ranger are more capable than compact trucks from before. The one ace up its sleeve is the small, turbocharged engine that delivers world-class fuel economy through the advanced 10-speed automatic transmission.

The 2019 Ford Ranger has a 2.3 liter four cylinder engine that is capable of 270 hp and 310 pound-feet of torque. There are no manual transmission or V6 options. The cab makes up for it by offering lots of configurations, including four wheel drive, tons of safety features and added convenience.

The base model starts with a six-foot box, small, rear hinged back doors, and four seats. Taking things up a notch is the Super Crew which as five seats, four full sized opening doors. A Terrain Management system has settings for gravel, snow, and grass, another for ruts and mud, and a sand setting.

The system automatically makes adjustments for stability, ABS, traction control settings, transmission mapping, and throttle. The SuperCrew trim is the most spacious, making it perfect for families with kids. If you want to haul trailers up a cliff or mountain, then you can opt for the tow package, which allows the Ranger to tow up to 7500 pounds or 1860 pounds in the bed.

2019 Ford Ranger Technology

All models, including the base versions, come with straight-forward controls, but the lower-trim versions are more bare bones. The truck has advanced driver assistance features including lane departure assist and warning, automated emergency braking, and blind-spot monitoring that covers trailers.

There are XL, XLT, and Lariat models, rear and 4-wheel drive, full-crew body and extended-cab styles. The infotainment system is powered by Ford’s SYNC, which is easy to use and fluid.

2019 Ford Ranger Driving

The Ranger handles comfortably well, steering is responsive and light with an impressive turning cycle. Expect the ride to get a little bouncy over road bumps, but that is to be expected in unloaded pickups. The 4X4 system is meant for loose surfaces only, and driving on dry roads can potentially case wear and tear to the tire and driveline.

To make handling smoother, you can opt for the FX4 Off-Road Package, which adds all-terrain tires, skid plates, and electronic locking rear differentials. Terrain Management is controlled with a simple button on the dashboard, and can be used to optimize performance in different conditions, such as snow, mud, and sand.

2019 Ford Ranger Interior

The Ranger’s cabin is beautiful and uncluttered. There are generously big dials on the dashboard to control stereo volume and tuning and the controls for the truck’s automatic dual zone climate control are slightly small, set in the center, with tinier still toggles to control the temperature.

Features such as heated leather seats and front seats with eight-way power are available on the Lariat models.
