Loudon Motors Ford's Vehicle of the Week: 2019 Ford Ranger

At Loudon Motors Ford, we have decided to create another weekly blog series that highlights one of our favorite vehicles on our lot. This week, we are highlighting the 2019 Ford Ranger! We are so excited to have it on our lot, as they have not been in production since 2011. Having almost eight years to redesign the truck, it has reemerged with some outstanding new additions.

This Ford Ranger was designed to be a little bigger than the previous model with a fully box framed foundation made almost entirely with high-strength steel. The hood and the tailgate of the truck are the only parts of the cars foundation that are not made of steel, but aluminum. The truck uses a 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine paired with the only 10-speed transmission in the segment. This engine will give drivers a lot of power, as it closely related to the turbo four-cylinder found in the Ford Explorer and Mustang.

The 4WD models that include all-terrain capability will have the same Terrain-Management System that is used in the Ford Raptor. This system adapts to the terrain or weather condition setting selected by the driver by changing the responsiveness of the engine, tire traction and transmission gearing of the vehicle. The Ranger will also be the first vehicle in the fleet to offer the new Ford Trail Control, which is comparable to cruise control, but will manage acceleration, braking, and sending power to each wheel. Also, the truck will be offered in various packages, such as the FX4 Off-Road Package that provides off-road tuned shocks, all-terrain tires, a frame-mounted heavy-gauge steel front bash plate, and frame-mounted skid plates. The new Ranger will be offered in XL, XLT and Lariat trim, available with chrome or sport packages. Configurations will include the SuperCab and the SuperCrew cab. Currently, we have the Lariat trim with the Trailer Tow Package in Shadow Black!

Technology wise, the Ranger is very advanced. Options include SYNC® 3 with navigation and FordPass™, and capability to use Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Options also have a 4G LTE hotspot that can be connected to 10 devices at a time! The vehicle also boasts a state of the art sound system by B&O Play that is specifically designed for the Ranger’s cab shape.

With all of these new enhancements to the Ranger, it is sure to not disappoint and emerge as one of the most popular cars in Ford’s fleet! Come down to Loudon Motors Ford and yourself get into a new Ford Ranger!
