The revived Ranger, which will be made in MI and go on sale next year, has a similar architecture to the pickup Ford sells in dozens of markets overseas, but its design and powertrain have been developed specifically for US buyers. A terrain management system, similar to that found on the F-150 Raptor, will also be available.
Ford isn't talking pricing for the 2019 Ranger yet, but we should know more when the Ranger saddles up in early 2019.
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 new Ranger will come with both SuperCab and SuperCrew Cab options, offering both a two and four-door configuration. Analysts say that the buyers for a midsize truck are more interested in sports or off-roading while the full-size truck buyer usually uses the vehicle for work. But to meet USA safety standards and customer expectations, the frame was reinforced with high-strength steel. When you pair that with its 10-speedtransmission, youve got one of the most versatile, powerful and efficient powertrains in the segment.. Ford says that will give the truck the power of a V6 engine with the fuel economy of a four-cylinder. The FX4 package will come with standard automatic emergency braking. Orians also suspects that while the Ranger has sentimental value for some drivers, most will prefer something more capable and comfortable.
Inside, the Ranger will offer room for up to five people, their gear, and accessories, while featuring a "center stack" includes an 8-in. touch screen for the available SYNC 3 system. The system will be standard on the XLT and Lariat trims.
As with all new Fords, the Sync3 will be available, and FordPass with Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing users to connect up to 10 devices within a 50 feet radius of the vehicle.
The Isuzu D-Max's 3.0-litre turbo diesel - an engine shared with an Isuzu truck - remains the biggest capacity four-cylinder diesel in the ute category ahead of Toyota and Holden (2.8 turbo diesel), Mitsubishi (2.4 turbo diesel) and Nissan (2.3 turbo diesel).
