The Ford Ranger Returns to Collegeville

Mid-size pickups are a great option for Eagleville drivers who want the advantages of a truck but don't want the excessive footprint of a full-size model. Unfortunately, fans of the Ford brand were without a mid-size option for several years. However, the 2019 model year changed that in a big way with the re-introduction of the legendary Ranger nameplate. With its turbocharged engine, wealth of standard and available features, and best-in-class hauling capability, the Ford Ranger is back on the market and it's better than ever before.

Ford Ranger Power & Capability

The Ford Ranger gets its power from an energetic 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine (270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet if torque) paired with a 10-speed shiftable automatic transmission. Equipped with standard rear-wheel drive, Ranger achieves EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 23 mpg combined. Four-wheel drive can be optioned on any trim level.

When there's work to be done, the Ranger has your back, with a max tow rating of up to 7,500 pounds when properly equipped. When it comes to carrying capacity, the Ranger leads the competition, boasting a best-in-class payload rating of 1,860 pounds.

Of course, the Ranger isn't all work and no play. For enhanced capability off the beaten path, the available FX4 package delivers a bevy of essential off-road features like upgraded shocks and suspension tuning, front tow hooks, off-road tires, an electronically locking rear axle, skid plates, a terrain management system, and the low-speed crawl Trail Control system.

Ford Ranger Trim Levels & Features

Features for the Ford Ranger are organized across three trim levels: XL, XLT, and Lariat.

The XL trim level is great if you're looking for a hardworking no-nonsense work truck, with standard features like a locking tailgate, automatic headlights, power windows, and a rear-view camera. Automatic Emergency Braking with Pre-Collision Assist system is also standard, providing an extra degree of security to supplement attentive driving.

For King of Prussia drivers seeking to upgrade their driving experience, the XLT trim delivers a solid mix of features and value. Features at this tier include automatic high beams, a 110-volt household-style power outlet, keyless entry, a remote-locking tailgate, 17-inch alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, fog lights, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. The XLT tier also comes standard with the Ford Co-Pilot360 suite of driver-assistance technologies, including features like:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pre-Collision Assist
  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Auto High-Beam Headlamps
  • Rear View Camera
  • Lane-Keeping System

At the top of the range, the Lariat trim builds on the XLT with premium amenities like 18-inch alloy wheels, LED cargo lighting, heated power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control leather upholstery, and the SYNC 3 infotainment system with 8-inch touchscreen and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
