The results are in: the 2019 Ford Ranger is the most fuel-efficient midsize pickup (that isn’t an EV) in the United States. Tests were conducted by the EPA, who gave it an estimated gas economy of 23 mpg combined (21 city/26 highway) for 4×2 trucks. The other factor that makes this vehicle a first-class industry leader is the standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. It cranks out 280 HP at 5,600 revs per minute and produces 310 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,000 rpm (the best within its category!)
Of course, those numbers mean nothing if this beauty doesn’t have some cool technology to back it up; fortunately, it does. The magnificent machine has the option of a Tech Pack, which adds many nifty tools designed to assist you. For example, the inter-urban AEB with pedestrian detection uses radars and cameras to advise you if cars, objects, or people are too close so you can avoid collisions; traffic sign recognition notices things like “speed limit" or "turn ahead” and acts accordingly; and the driver attention monitor continually assesses your behavior to aid in determining whether you’re becoming inattentive and should take a break.
