2019 Ford Ranger returns as a midsize with 10-speed and turbo four
The Ford Ranger has been absent from the United States for the past eight years, and it is primed for an epic comeback. Ford unveiled its 2019 Ford Ranger, that will be built and sold in the U.S., at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. The midsized truck was all the buzz as Ford revealed its plans which include a new drivetrain and engine.
The 2019 Ford Ranger will come standard with an efficient 10-speed automatic transmission that is borrowed from its big brother, the F-150. It will be the only truck in its class with a steel bumper with tow hooks and will include skid plates on the underside. This truck will be begging you to take it off road, with an all steel frame and mostly-steel body. The hood and the tailgate with be the only aluminum on this truck.
The Ranger will be powered by an all-new turbocharged 2.3 Liter four-cylinder that Ford will try to beat Chevy and Toyota in regards to horsepower. The details of those power number have yet to be release, although we can assume that Ford is not playing around. The truck will be built in Dearborn, Michigan and we will bet that you can’t wait to drive one.
