After being out of production for eight years, the Ford Ranger is back as an all-new midsize pickup truck for 2019. It’s available in two cab styles, each with a different-sized cargo box. The four-seat cabin is paired with two traditional front doors and two smaller, rear-hinged back doors. The five-person setup has four traditional doors.
The Ranger is designed for truck lovers who don’t need the larger size, increased capability and higher price of a full-size truck.
What Makes it Unique?
No other truck in the segment combines advanced driver-assistance systems with all of 2019’s top connectivity features.
Ranger vs. Other Fords
The entry point to Ford’s truck family, the Ranger is nearly 2 feet shorter in length than the shortest four-door 2019 Ford F-150.
Ford Ranger vs. Competition
Smaller pickups have gained popularity in recent years, and automakers have responded with an impressive range of choices. The Ranger’s top rivals include:
Toyota Tacoma: The segment’s long-time sales leader, it has a lower tow rating and less connectivity tech than the Ranger.
Chevrolet Colorado: Available with a more efficient and capable diesel engine – and less safety technology.
Honda Ridgeline: The “crossover” of pickups and the only one here not built on a steel frame.
Is the 2019 Model Year Right for You?
Changes for 2019
The Ford Ranger is all new this year.
2019 Ford Ranger vs. Older Rangers
The 2019 Ranger is the first model from the truck’s fourth generation. During the first three generations – in production from 1983 through 2011 – Ford sold more than 7 million Rangers. Many are still available on the used-car market, but they’re smaller pickups without the modern refinements you’ll get in a 2019 Ranger.
The original starting prices for each trim, including MSRP and the destination charge:
The XLT trim presents the best all-around value. It gets Ford’s safety technology bundle standard, and you can add upgraded connectivity features in a separate option package. That combo will save you money over the more luxurious Lariat trim.
The XL trim may be a hard sell for some shoppers because of its older standard infotainment technology.
2019 Ford Ranger Performance
All 2019 Rangers have the same engine:
270-horsepower turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and rear- or four-wheel drive
Maximum tow rating of 7,500 pounds when properly equipped
Compared to the class? Its engine is plenty strong, giving the Ranger a higher trailer rating than any gas-powered rival. The other pickups, though, all have at least two engine choices, meaning they offer V6s to compete against the Ranger’s standard turbocharged four-cylinder. However, their standard engines are less powerful than the Ranger’s, which in most cases translates into lower starting prices. The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon have pricier diesel options, too, for better fuel economy and a higher tow rating than the Ranger.
RWD/AWD: 23/22 EPA-estimated combined mpg*
*The EPA uses a mixture of highway and city driving for its combined estimate.
Compared to the class? No 2019 midsize pickup is rated higher in combined driving than the Ranger.
"The truck is solid. Does very well off road - the obstacle alerts go off in really rough terrain but never affect operations. Used on the farm. Crosses creeks, etc. well. Need to use mud tires when going in really muddy places otherwise- its good. Power is excellent, Gas mileage is great. Really nice on the Highway. Good enough that my son bought one after driving mine."
"So far the auto start feature in traffic is a pain. It is wired backwards. The driver needs to be able to turn it on when they feel it is needed. It will affect the life of the starter.
My recommendation is discontinue it."
The vinyl looks as good as leather. Lot's of compliments.
I accessorized it just like I wanted it. Really a lot of good compliments.
Get up and go power. Easy on gas.
I have had 6 rangers and 1 F-150. This ranger is comparable with the F-150. Very comfortable in both driving and riding. The only negative I have when riding it is road noise. It may be the tires.
