One of the best-selling mid-size SUVs is coming back to the U.S. market as a 2019 model. The new 2019 Ford Ranger will appear as a redesigned and upgraded version of the well-known Ford model. Although it has been spied recently as a camouflaged version, we could reveal the most important and distinctive features that you can expect.
As we have already mentioned, our team has got the information about the exterior of the new 2019 Ford Ranger based on the spy photos of camouflaged prototype that could not reveal much. However, we have managed to notice the most prominent features that the new Ranger will carry but also the recognizable characteristics that this model will keep. Generally, the new Ranger will not change radically in terms of exterior. In fact, it will be based on the same platform that was used on the current Ranger. Fans would also compare the new Ranger to the F-150 model, since they share the same boxy design, especially in the front fascia. The new Ranger will get a horizontal chrome bar on the grille, round headlights, massive bumper and larger tow hooks under it. The profile and the rear part of the vehicle will remain mostly the same, keeping the Ranger’s recognizable features. We have been informed that this mid-size truck will be available in three configuration versions – a regular cab, extended cab and crew cab.
The interior of the 2019 Ford Ranger is expected to be modern and simple with plenty of space for its passengers. The seats should be comfortable and supportive, since the Ranger is known as an off-road vehicle, suitable for all sorts of terrains. When it comes to materials, it will probably use cloth and vinyl to furnish the cabin while the high-quality materials such as leather, metal and wood can be found in higher trim levels. The dashboard and center console will be upgraded and offer the latest hi-tech options expected to be found in the next-generation SUV like this. It will provide the SYNC infotainment system as well as numerous entertainment, connectivity and safety features.
It has been rumored that the new 2019 Ford Ranger could come with four engine options where the three of them would be diesel. However, this information has not been confirmed yet, but one of the possible options is a 3.2-liter five-cylinder turbo diesel engine with 185 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. The other could be a 2.7-liter Eco Boost V-6 engine, found in the F-150 that will be able to deliver 325 horsepower and 375 pound-feet of torque. We have been informed that whatever engine it gets, the new Ranger will offer either six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
2019 Ford Ranger Release Date and Price
The 2019 Ford Range is expected to make its debut by the end of 2018. The starting price of a regular cab version is estimated at $21,000, but the price of this mid-size truck could go up to $40,000.
