With trembling fingers you scratch off yet another date on your calendar - slashing through the week with glee, dragging a pen across each number. You’re counting down the days until the 2019 Ranger arrives… and we’ll admit that we’re doing the same.
Soon Ford will unveil its latest pick-up powerhouse - and drivers across Tacoma are anxiously awaiting the chance to slide behind the wheel. As Hot Cars explains, the 2019 Ranger will prove impossible to resist: delivering class-leading capability and staggering strength.
Beneath the hood of this mid-size platform growls a 2.3L engine. EcoBoost technology maximizes fuel intake, promoting increased air ratios and direct-injection support; while a 10-speed automatic transmission yields smooth shifting, allowing the truck to achieve seamless sequencing. These elements combine to promote a potent power-band, with the Ranger delivering 270 HP and 310 lb.-ft of torque (compare this to the platform’s previous generation, which produced only 207 HP and 238 lb.-ft of torque in 2011).
To further thrill pick-up fans, Ford has bolstered the chassis with exclusive aluminum beams - promoting increased strength and capability. Expect this truck to achieve a class-leading payload capacity of 1,860-pounds with ease.
The 2019 Ranger will redefine the mid-size market. To learn more about this platform contact our dealership today!
