The mid-sized 2019 Ford Ranger pickup is back, and starting under $26k.
The all-new Ford Ranger is finally here! This is good news for anyone in the market for a small (ish) truck! You just got another great option to choose from. Between the Chevy Colorado, Honda Ridgeline, and Toyota Tacoma, the mid-sized truck market is hotter than it’s been in nearly a decade.
Recently, the 2019 Ford Ranger configurator went live, and with it, the revealed starting price of $25,395 MSRP. This places it right smack dab in the middle of its competition. However, this price is only for the bare-bones XL trim level.
As of now, there are three available trim levels: the aforementioned XL, the mid-tier XLT, and the range-topping Lariat. the 2019 Ranger XLT starts at $31,210 MSRP and the 2019 Ranger Lariat starts at $35,480 MSRP.
The all-new Ford Ranger is available in two configurations: SuperCab with a 6′ bed and SuperCrew with a 5′ bed. All three trim levels are available in both configurations
All new Rangers will be equipped with a 2.3L EcoBoost I4 engine not dissimilar to the one found in the four-banger Mustang and other Ford models. However, the Ford Ranger will use a more modest tune, churning out 280 HP and 310 lb.-ft. of torque.
EcoBoost engines have been known to put out plenty of torque, lending them quite well to towing. While exact towing specs aren’t available yet, reports say the Ranger will be a class-leader. This means it will be capable of towing upwards of 8,000 when properly equipped.
All that towing power won’t sacrifice fuel efficiency, either. While MPGs aren’t the first thing on a truck buyer’s list of needs, it’s possible the 2019 Ranger could get close to 30 MPG highway through use of EcoBoost engineering an a trick 10-speed automatic transmission.
While you may be excited while configuring your 2019 Ranger, don’t expect to see this all-new truck on the showroom floor until at least late this year.
