New Ford Ranger's Engine Power, Efficiency & Towing Capacity

When it comes to pickups trucks, Ames, IA buyers are understandably most focused on engine power and capability, but efficiency is becoming more and more important. The new 2019 Ford Ranger comes with a single engine option: a 2.3l turbocharged engine that produces 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired to a 10-speed automatic, which maximizes efficiency and low-range power delivery.

The 2019 Ford Ranger gets a respectable 23 mpg combined, which is much higher than full-size pickup trucks, and can tow an impressive 7,500 lbs. With its comfortable and easy to drive form factor, the 2019 Ranger's strong towing capacity makes it a very attractive package as both a daily driver and truck for work. There are also trailer and safety technologies which we'll look at below, that make the 2019 Ford Ranger easy to drive even if you're towing a trailer.

2019 Ford Ranger Tech & Interior Features

As a midsize pickup truck, Ford has designed the new 2019 Ranger to be both comfortable and rugged. The new Ranger offers the latest in tech, including an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, as well as advanced safety features like automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, and more. Navigation and a premium Bang & Olufson sound system are also available.

The 2019 Ford Ranger Lariat also comes with leather interior, LED lights, heated power seats, and a wealth of other features that add both style and luxury. However, many of our Ames, IA customers are most excited for the off-road package for the 2019 Ford Ranger. The Ranger's FX4 Off-Road Package adds a wealth of powerful off-roading equipment, including off-road tires, upgraded shocks & suspension, electronically locking rear axle, tow hooks, skid plates, terrain management system, and a low-speed crawl system. One of the best things about this package is that it is available on all 2019 Ford Ranger models. You don't have to upgrade to a specific trim level, or sacrifice the luxury features of the top Lariat trim to get impressive off-road capability.
