Here Are The Official Truck Guy Specs For The 2019 Ford Ranger


And truck gal, of course.

The reborn 2019 Ford Ranger is finally here and while sales will soon get underway once production kicks off later this year, the automaker has now released additional specs for the mid-size pickup truck. Under its hood, as we already know, lies a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder good for 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque, which is paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear- and four-wheel drive are both available. But what about truck duty essentials like towing capacity and payload rating?

Well, here you go: the 2019 Ranger has a maximum towing capacity of 7,500 pounds (with the optional towing package and trailer brake controller) – a best-in-class figure for a gasoline-engined truck. Payload capacity is rated at 1,800 pounds.

“Think of Ranger as the biggest and most capable backpack for your gear,” says Rick Bolt, Ford Ranger chief engineer. “With 1,860 pounds of maximum payload, Ranger can haul nearly a ton of gear to enable your next adventure.” This latest info sounds all the more impressive considering the new Ranger’s pricing, announced in August. Starting at $25,395 (including destination), the 2019 Ranger XL SuperCab RWD comes with a six-foot bed, 16-inch wheels, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and cloth bucket seats. Tacking on 4WD increases the price to $29,555.

The SuperCrew with a five-foot bed, in base 4x2 XL, starts at $27,615 while a nearly fully loaded 4x4 SuperCrew Lariat gets going at $39,480. Lariat trim Rangers feature a number of premium upgrades such as the Sync3 infotainment system, leather-trimmed seats, LED headlights, and push-button start.

A US-spec Ranger Raptor, already on sale as a diesel in such overseas markets like Australia, is widely expected to arrive in the near future, although its oil burner status remains unknown. Opting for a Ranger 4x4 Lariat with the towing package will go for around $45k, putting it directly in line with an also fully-equipped Chevrolet Colorado. The return of the mid-size truck wars has begun.
