Ford Reveals All-new 2019 Ford Ranger For North America

2019 Ford Ranger EMBARGOED DO NOT USE

Even though it's clearly related to the model that's been on sale outside the United States, Ford says that the 2019 Ranger has been designed specifically for the the United States.

The Ford Ranger is second only to the Toyota Hilux in worldwide sales of midsize trucks outside North America, Eckert confirmed.

Fully reengineered for the United States, Ranger will be built in MI with a 2.3-liter turbocharged four cylinder engine and 10-speed automatic transmission.

Inside, the Ranger will seat up to five.

Recent industry news included the seemingly cease-and-desist of the Fusion midsize sedan after 2020, and Ford announcing $1.2-billlion investment in support of truck and SUV production in MI.

However, in late 2014, GM launched new Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Sierra pickups, and Japanese automakers Toyota Motor Corp and Nissan Motor Co reinvigorated their midsize pickup trucks, aiming at customers who wanted to haul bikes, surfboards and other bulky recreational gear, not sheets of plywood. Ranger's muscular body features a high beltline that emphasizes strength, while a raked grille and windshield provide an athletic appearance - created to aid in aerodynamics and reduce wind noise.

The Ford Ranger has been launched in the U.S. to satisfy burgeoning demand in the mid-size pick-up truck market.


The Ranger will be available in three trim grades: XL, midlevel XLT, and a high-level Lariat trim series. Globally, the Ford Ranger design is distinct for its fast windshield, high beltline, and short front overhangs, which make for good approach/departure angles.

The truck sits on a high-strength steel frame with frame-mounted steel front and rear bumpers; the rear bumper has an integrated trailer hitch receiver.

"Ranger has always held a special place in the hearts of truck fans", said Ford's boss of product development and purchasing, Hau Thai-Tang. Outfitted with a performance-focused 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V6 EcoBoost engine, the Edge ST will be the most powerful V6 engine in its class, with an output of 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. This package, to be offered for rear- and four-wheel-drive models, will add skid plates, knobby tires, off-road-tuned shocks and suspension, a Terrain Management System, and a new Trail Control system. A dial bears labels for mud, ruts, sand, grass, gravel and snow. Arriving in showrooms later this summer, Ford introduced the refreshed 2019 Edge but with an all-new twist in the racing-inspired Edge ST.

An electronic Terrain Management System adjusts the drivetrain to any type of surface or condition. An off-road drive assist technology maintains speed as low as 1 miles per hour and as high as 20 miles per hour, in any transfer-case setting. It comes in both 2-and 4-wheel drive.

The Ranger retains body-on-frame construction and has standard steel bumpers, a solid rear axle and Dana differentials.

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

Available driver-assist technologies include standard automatic emergency braking, while lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, a reverse sensing system and blind spot information system with trailer coverage are standard on XLT and Lariat trim levels. Available SYNC 3 features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, Ford+Alexapersonal assistant functionality and optional navigation, Ford said. "An available FordPassâ"¢ Connect 4G LTE modem provides Wi-Fi access for up to 10 devices. The Lariat will also get Adaptive Cruise Control and Pedestrian Detection. Power outlets allow charging of laptops and cell phones. Available B&O PLAY premium audio is specially tuned for the Ranger cab to deliver a rich and engaging listening experience.
