After years of report and speculation, Ford verified in January that the long-departed Ranger pickup would stage a return in the United States market. Terminated in 2011 after nearly 30 years of service, the Ranger left a vacuum in Ford’s lineup. Ford believed that without a little or mid-size truck, purchasers would just move up to an entry-level version of its full-size F-150.
Pleased with its chart-topping F-150 sales and figuring that the mid-size-truck sector was nearly dead, Ford appeared material to let Toyota, Nissan, and the aging General Motors mid-sizers fight over whatever shrinking market was left. However then GM fabricated ideal and introduced all-new Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon trucks for 2015, and the two largish and not-that-inexpensive mid-sizers offered far better than nearly anybody expected. When even Honda restored its Ridgeline, it became apparent Ford had to get back in the video game.
The return of the less-than-gigantic Ford pickup. Ford currently offers this mid-sizer just about all over except here. But that will alter in response to the strong-selling Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon. The Ranger will also generate a new Ford Bronco SUV, which will use some competition to the Jeep Wrangler. Broncos should show up in 2020 with a beginning cost of $30,000.
2019 Ford Ranger Platform
2019 Ford Ranger will utilize the very same body-on-frame construction as the truck sold somewhere else on the planet. Like GM’s mid-sizers, it’s just a little smaller sized than its huge sibling; the Crew Cab is actually longer than a base F-150. But GM has actually proved that even huge little trucks can sell without cannibalizing sales from the full-size lineup.
2019 Ford Ranger Engine
The only engine currently used in the global Ranger that would likely come to the American market is the 3.2-liter five-cylinder diesel. It’s available in the full-size Transit van and might assist the Ranger eliminate the title of “most effective pickup” from the 31-highway-mpg diesel Colorado/Canyon twins. Anticipate an EcoBoost four-cylinder as well as a naturally aspirated gas V-6 in the United States lineup. A diesel Bronco sounds pretty good to us, too.
2019 Ford Ranger Price
The 2019 Ford Ranger is set to debut sometime in 2018, and the new 2020 Bronco based on the Ranger will appear a year later the very same chassis. For the Ranger to remain a practical proposal versus competitors and alongside Ford’s full-size trucks, base rates will need to be around the $25,000 mark. That stated, do not be shocked to see greatly optioned or possible off-road-focused variants approach as well as surpass $40,000.
