2019 Ford Ranger Engine, Features Review

Thursday, June 8th 2017. | Ford

2019 Ford Ranger Review. Ford announced it will bring the Ranger back to America in 2019. now Ford has been a little reluctant to bring it back because it thought that the Ranger was just too close in size to the f-150.

The f-150 has basically gone way past the mid-size range and Ford is losing market share to trucks like the Chevy Colorado and the Toyota Tacoma but Ford’s problem is our gain and what will this Ranger look like.

2019 Ford Ranger Engine

The 2019 Ford Ranger in Europe has three diesel engine variants too with the displacement of 2.2 liters for 330 or 385 pound-feet of torque and there’s also a larger 3.2 liter diesel for 470 pound-feet of torque. While it would be awesome to have those kinds of oil burning options here in the States we’ll probably only get one diesel option and it may be the Powerstroke diesel from the f-150 albeit something with a smaller displacement.

in terms of gas engine options we’ll probably see a smallish four-cylinder choice which would likely produce close to 200 horsepower but to beat the competition Ford’s going to need to up the ante with some six cylinder choices as well. A naturally aspirated 3.5 liter v6 would probably produce power and torque in the mid 200s and if we’re lucky we may see the 2.7 liter EcoBoost in the f-150 that’s good for 325 horsepower and 375 pound-feet of torque which should be plenty to motivate that smaller truck around town.

2019 Ford Ranger Features

in Europe the 2019 Ford Ranger gets a six-speed manual but yeah that probably has not happened in here in the states I’m assuming we’re going to get a six-speed automatic. I would expect the tech to roll over from the f-150 including adaptive cruise control, possibly with the start/stop capabilities, lane-keeping technology, forward collision alert and front and rear parking assist.

The 2019 Ford Ranger can tow up to 77 hundred pounds and that should remain the same for the US version. In Europe you can have the option of a five at six or seven and a half foot bed. Now competition like the Chevrolet Colorado only offers a 5 or a 6 foot bed so Ford may opt to keep that super long box just to get a leg up on the competition.
