New 2019 Ford Ranger - Features
Built Ford Tough® . And Ready For Adventure.
Built Ford Tough® isn't just a slogan. It's an attitude that runs deep in the history of Ford truck engineering and has produced America's popular lineup of rugged and dependable Ford pickups. That lineup is even bigger and more formidable with the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger, tested under conditions more extreme than you would ever likely encounter. Go ahead and set a date for your next adventure. Your Ranger is ready!
Built Ford Tough®
Ford engineers set a grueling test regimen to prepare the new Ford Ranger for the demands of multi-terrain travel. Durability trials on roads so punishing that robots were called in to do the driving. Days of constant shaking in the lab to help identify and reduce squeaks and rattles and to tune suspension parts and body mounts for durability and performance. Towing heavy loads over hours up steep grades at 100 degrees Fahrenheit. And traveling under heart-pounding, bone-jarring off-road conditions. The new Ford Ranger. It's more than up to the challenge of taking on your toughest test.
2.3l EcoBoost® With Best-in-class Gas Torque
Raw torque rules when you're taking on the rugged demands of off-road terrain. And the new Ford Ranger beats all other gas-powered pickups in its class with a torque rating of 310 lb.-ft. The 270 horses under the hood are mighty impressive too. The 2.3L EcoBoost® is engineered with a twin-scroll turbocharger that extracts exhaust gas from pairs of cylinders in alternating sequence, maximizing pulse energy to the turbine wheel for responsiveness on demand with virtually no lag. The 10-speed SelectShift® automatic, featuring Ford-Patented technology, optimizes gear progressions and delivers smooth, quick shifting up and down the gearbox.
Best-in-class Epa-Estimated Gas Mpg
For all the best-in-class gas torque it generates, the all-new Ford Ranger is the most fuel-efficient gas-powered midsize pickup in America. The 2.3L EcoBoost® features the direct-injection (DI) system. With DI, gas is injected at high pressure directly into the combustion chamber in a very precise measure. The engine also features Auto Start-Stop Technology. When you come to a stop, the engine shuts off to save fuel and restarts immediately when the brake is released. Designed smart for truck applications, auto start-stop deactivates when it wouldn't be needed, such as when you're towing a trailer or running in four-wheel drive.
Best-in-class Gas Payload And Towing
You carry gear - and lots of it. And the new Ford Ranger has these big advantages over other gas-powered midsize pickups: best-in-class maximum 1,860-lb. payload and 7,500- lb. tow ratings. Need to haul more? Tow more? Head out to your next adventure in the all-new Ranger.
High-strength Steel Frame And Frame-mounted Steel Bumpers
The foundation of outstanding off-road capability is strength. That's why Ford engineers made the backbone of the new Ranger a fully boxed, high-strength steel frame with six crossmembers - plus steel bumpers and tow hooks mounted directly to the frame for ruggedness and durability.
Independent A-Arm Front Suspension
The new Ranger has a double A-arm independent front suspension engineered for agility and control over rugged off-road terrain. The shock absorbers are the monotube type designed for fade resistance and heat dissipation. They're also nitrogen gas-pressurized for shock-damping consistency over sustained rough road conditions.
Parabolic Rear Leaf Springs
The rear suspension of the new Ranger delivers ride quality and control, both on and off the road. Which is why engineers chose 2-stage parabolic leaf springs. Their flexible, lowfriction design enables more axle movement and flexibility with reduced stiffness over the conventional multi-leaf springs typically used in high-load applications. Also, the rear shock absorbers are mounted outboard of the frame rails to reduce body lean and enhance cornering. And they're nitrogen gas-pressurized, designed for shock-damping consistency over sustained rough road conditions.
New 2019 Ford Ranger - Adventure
The new Ford Ranger is perfectly at home on typical everyday paved roads. But going from mild to wild where smooth pavement comes to an end - now we're talking Ranger territory. With its high-strength steel frame, steel frame-mounted bumpers, off-road chassis components and EcoBoost® power, every Ranger is bred for adventure. And for the serious all-terrain enthusiast, there's the Ranger outfitted with all the must-have features in the FX4 Off-Road Package.
4x4 Electronic Shift-on-the-fly
Shifting into four-wheel drive is as easy as turning a dial with the electronic shift-on-the-fly (ESOF) system. ESOF lets you choose two four-wheel-drive modes (4x4 high or low), as well as two-wheel drive for travel on dry paved surfaces.
Fx4 Off-road Package
Serious off-roaders know what they need to get max fun out of every adventure. And it's all in the FX4 Off-Road Package: Tuned off-road monotube shocks. All-terrain tires with aggressive tread. Traction-enhancing electronic-locking rear differential. Exposed steel front bash plate. Heavy-duty front skid plate. Skid plates for the electric power-assist steering (EPAS) electric motor, transfer case and fuel tank. And inside, a cluster screen provides feedback on pitch and roll plus steering angle. Included also are the Terrain Management System™ and Trail Control™ providing essential off-road technology.
Terrain Management System™
Advanced technology provides an added measure of control, on or off the road. The Terrain Management System™ (included in the FX4 Off-Road Package) has five selectable drive modes. Choose Normal, Grass, Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, or Sand. The system, shifting on the fly, automatically calibrates engine responsiveness, transmission gearing and vehicle control systems to provide the optimum traction, driveability and performance.
Trail Control™ (included in the FX4 Off-Road Package) is a driver-activated control system that helps you navigate more easily over rough terrain. It manages throttle and braking at individual wheels while maintaining a constant speed between one and 20 mph. So you can focus all your attention on the thrill of steering over the demanding terrain.
Electronic-Locking Rear Differential
Traveling on tough off-road terrain can be anything but predictable. What starts out as a level patch of dry dirt can instantly become a stretch of rutted mud. That's where the available electronic-locking rear differential (included in the FX4 Off-Road Package) comes into play. When activated, it locks the rear axle completely to optimize traction at both wheels simultaneously, improving off-road performance when the situation requires it.
Off-Road Ground Clearance
High-strength steel frame, steel frame-mounted bumpers and potent EcoBoost® torque give the new Ford Ranger outstanding all-terrain capability. The Ranger body shape says serious off-road performance as well. Approach, breakover and departure angles are designed to enable Ranger to climb hills and clear obstacles.
New 2019 Ford Ranger - Design
What You See Is What You'll Enjoy
Great design conveys more than just a vehicle's appearance. It says just as much about a vehicle's capability. From its dynamic twin power dome hood and wide grille to its rounded wheel arches and high ground clearance, the new Ranger says this is a pickup engineered for solid all-terrain performance. Enjoy the ride, from the moment you leave for your adventure in the great outdoors until you've arrived. The new 2019 Ford Ranger.
The athletic shape of the all-new Ford Ranger shows a masterful blend of style and function. The twin power dome hood has more than just strong visual performance. It works with the low-angled windshield to channel air efficiently over the roof and reduce wind noise. The wide grille opening and rounded wheel arches are aerodynamically functional as well. And high approach, breakover and departure angles enhance all-terrain capability for climbing hills and clearing obstacles.
The Ranger interior carries over from the outside the emphasis on style and function - and adds the important element of comfort. Seating is firm and supportive, with accommodations for up to five in the versatile and spacious four-door SuperCrew®. Instruments and controls are easy to read and operate, with the available 8" center touchscreen and the available dual LCD instrument cluster productivity screens providing a variety of helpful operating information. And Ranger offers available driver-assist technologies, the latest in Ford connectivity and navigational features, as well as premium audio performance from Bang & Olufsen.
Supercab Or Supercrew®
Versatility is a big reason people drive pickup trucks. And Ford Ranger offers two ways to go. The SuperCab provides seating for two up front with bucket seats and two in the rear with the bench seat, which includes under-seat storage. If you want the space behind the front seats only for carrying gear, you can have the rear seat removed in the XL model. And there's the more spacious and comfortable Ranger SuperCrew® with the conveniences of four full-size doors, seating for up to five, and rear under-seat storage. The SuperCab comes with a 6-ft. bed, the SuperCrew with a 5-ft. bed.
Stx Appearance Package
The STX Appearance Package adds bold styling elements to the Ranger XL model. Included in the package are 17" silver-painted aluminum wheels, Carbon Black bumpers, fog lamps, box decal, and premium cloth four-way Ebony black seats.
Chrome Appearance Package
There's nothing like the brilliant look of chrome to enhance the already striking style of the new Ford Ranger. There's a Chrome Appearance Package for every Ranger model. The XL package comes with chrome bumpers, fog lamps, black tow hooks, plus body-color wheellip moldings. The XLT package adds 17" chrome-like PDV wheels (or available 18" chrome-like PDV wheels), a 2-bar chrome grille, chrome exhaust tip, and chrome tow hooks. And the LARIAT package includes, along with the XLT features, 18" chrome-like PDV wheels, its own unique chrome grille, plus chrome mirror end caps.
Sport Appearance Package
Designers applied the dynamic color Magnetic to select areas of the Ranger exterior to create an enhanced sporty appearance. Available on XLT and LARIAT models, the Sport Appearance Package includes black grille with Magnetic surround on XLT or black grille with Magnetic surround and Magnetic bars on LARIAT, 17" Magnetic-painted aluminum wheels or available 18" machined aluminum wheels with Magnetic-painted pockets, Magnetic bumpers, Magnetic wheellip moldings, and sport box decal.

New 2019 Ford Ranger - Technology
Adventures In Technology
The 2019 Ford Ranger is engineered with the toughness to take you on off-road adventures that few other vehicles can. And there's much more to this all-new pickup from Ford. The Ranger brings confidence and enjoyment to the driving experience, courtesy of its impressive array of available technologies - from the driver-assist features in Ford Co-Pilot 360™, to voice-activated SYNC® 3 and FordPass Connect™, to the outstanding performance of the B&O™ Sound System by Bang & Olufsen.
The all-new Ford Ranger combines exceptional toughness and all-terrain capability with lots of advanced technology, like the enhanced voice-activated communications and entertainment capabilities of available SYNC® 3. Its easy-to-use, voice-activated technology features an 8” capacitive center stack touchscreen. The sleek user-friendly interface helps you connect to and control your smartphone. Enjoy pinch-to-zoom capability with the available voice-activated Navigation System. Two smart-charging USB ports are included. SYNC 3 also brings you the power of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility to your Ford.
Ford+Alexa, A Match Made In Tech Heaven

Get away on a weekend adventure in your Ford Ranger and stay connected with FordPass Connect™ . The G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot powered by AT&T let you connect up to 10 devices once, and you can use FordPass to keep track of your Wi-Fi data usage. Also, you can access the hotspot from up to 50 feet outside the vehicle.
It happens. While en route in your new Ford Ranger to your favorite outdoor getaway, you've wandered a little too close to the edge of your lane. Luckily, the Lane-Keeping System can help you stay in your lane, even during a moment of distraction. This smart feature scans your vehicle's position between the lines in the road ahead and can alert you if you're starting to edge out of your lane. Having trouble staying on track? After you've drifted a few times, you'll see a coffee cup icon, letting you know it's time to take a break.
Adaptive Cruise Control And Forward Collision Warning With Brake Support
You're taking off on a weekend for some fun and relaxation in the great outdoors. To help alleviate the stress of all the hours it takes to reach your destination, you can have your new Ranger equipped with available Adaptive Cruise Control. Just set a cruising speed and distance from the vehicle ahead. And as the vehicle ahead of you slows, so do you - automatically. When the vehicle ahead clears, you resume your pre-set speed and distance. There's also the Forward Collision with Brake Support. If it detects a collision is imminent and you don't react in time, the brakes will pre-charge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you brake.
Blis™ With Trailer Coverage
It's rush hour on the interstate. You're towing a boat on a weekend getaway to a remote mountain lake. And you need to change lanes. If this situation sounds daunting, it usually is. But available BLIS® with Trailer Coverage can help ease lane-change anxiety - it can alert you if a vehicle is detected in your vehicle's blind spot or even alongside the trailer you're towing.
Pre-collision Assist With Automatic Emergency Braking
Getting to your off-road destination should be as enjoyable as the adventure that awaits you. But hazards along the way can arise. This feature scans the road ahead and can alert you to potential collisions with vehicles or pedestrians detected in your path. If an impact becomes imminent and you don't take corrective action, the brakes can apply automatically. But don't worry - they'll only activate if they're needed.
Rear View Camera
Between glancing in the rearview mirror and craning your neck, backing up can present a challenge, especially when you are traveling unfamiliar territory. So we help make it easier. The rear view camera may not be an extra set of eyes, but it does provide a great view of what's behind your vehicle. Just make sure to keep the camera lens free of debris (like snow or dust) and you can navigate Reverse with more confidence.
Auto High-beam Headlamps
We've all been there. Heading into a pitch-black stretch of road and having to turn on the high beams - then forgetting to turn them off again as oncoming traffic approaches. Now, unlit roads, dark peripheries and other low-visibility situations don't have to catch you off guard. Auto high-beam headlamps can sense poor lighting conditions and switch on to light your path ahead. They even sense oncoming headlights and dim automatically so you don't have to worry about blinding other drivers. So you can keep your focus - and both hands on the wheel.
B&o Sound System By Bang & Olufsen
Enjoy outstanding entertainment with the power and clarity of the available B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen, designed to create a customized audio experience by incorporating specifically tailored speaker placement, tuning and calibration. Among its features: an integrated microphone monitoring background noise to ensure outstanding playback, up to 675 watts of amplified power, and 10 premium speakers.
