2019 Ford Ranger Pricing Leaks Before Official Announcement

Pricing / 35 Comments

The configurator can be accessed using a secret trick.

Although we already have most of the details on the upcoming 2019 Ranger, Ford has yet to reveal official pricing. The Ranger's chief rival, the Chevrolet Colorado, starts at $20,500, so we have been curious to find out if Ford would undercut GM in the mid-size truck segment. As we continue to wait for Ford to announce pricing, Off-Road.com's Matthew Guy has discovered a hidden configurator that reveals pricing for the 2019 Ranger.

To find the configurator, Guy reportedly went to the Fiesta configurator on Ford's website and simply replaced the word 'Fiesta' with 'Ranger' in the URL. We attempted to do this trick ourselves, but it appears Ford has been made wise to the issue and has corrected it. Luckily, we now have some idea of what the 2019 Ranger will cost when it goes on sale. The configurator initially showed a Regular Cab body style with a $24,000 starting price, but Ford has already announced that this was a mistake and that no Regular Cab would be offered.

This means the real base model will be the Supercab, starting at $24,300. The larger Supercrew will start at $26,520 for a base XL trim, $30,115 for an XLT, and $34,385 for the Lariat. Four-wheel-drive is also available on all trims for $4,000. The configurator also showed some available options like package 101A for $2130. 101A adds features like cruise control, power mirrors, and touchscreen SYNC infotainment. Off-road enthusiasts will likely opt for the $1,295 FX4 package, which can only be optioned with an additional STX appearance package and the 101A package. All Rangers are listed with a 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine mated to a 10-speed automatic, though there is still no information about output or fuel economy.
