The 2019 Ford Ranger from your local Ford dealership in Madras, OR signals Ford's highly-anticipated comeback to the US midsize pickup market. The previous Ranger was one of the most popular entries in its segment thanks to its impressive blend of utility, convenience, comfort, and off-road prowess. Will the 2019 Ford Ranger exceed expectations? If you're planning on getting a new truck, especially with the upcoming winter season, you have a serious competitor in the 2019 Ford Ranger. Let's take a closer look!


Bigger is Better

The 2019 Ford Ranger is much bigger than the compact older version. In fact, it's now closer to the F-150 in size than it is to the previous Ranger. The latest model has large frame-mounted hooks for its solid steel front bumper. There's also a short overhang for off-road driving. There are no more standard cab options like before; you can get the new Ranger in SuperCab and 4-door SuperCrew cab configurations.

5 and 6-feet cargo bed lengths are available, so start planning your adventures. Bring along your bikes, snowmobiles, skis, a trailer- Ford is predicting best-in-class payload with this one, so you don't have to hold back on your winter sports equipment.

Finally, with the 2019 Ranger's 9-inches of ground clearance, you don't have to worry about getting stuck in snow banks or slushing through ice and mud.

Rugged and Ready

Unlike the previous model, the 2019 Ford Ranger only has one engine and transmission option. You'll find a high-performance 2.3L EcoBoost 4-Cyl engine under the hood, mated to an exclusive 10-speed automatic.

In addition, the 2019 Ford Ranger is available with a 4-Wheel Drive option, an essential feature for excellent control under harsh road conditions like slippery ice and snow. An FX4 off-road option is available as well if you plan to take your Ranger on unpaved surfaces, snowy mountain passes, and complicated trails. The FX4 also has a Terrain Management System with four driver-select modes including modes for grass, gravel, and snow.

Seriously Accommodating

Of course, the 2019 Ford Ranger offers a host of modern features that the old model simply doesn't have. Latest driver assist features include lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and Blind Spot Information that will be extremely useful whether it's sunny or you're driving through a blizzard.

As far as infotainment goes, there have been upgrade for the Sync 3 system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality. There's also the Ford+Alexa personal assistant feature that includes navigation and lets you manage home systems. It's easy to stay connected on the 2019 Ranger too: up to 10 devices can connect to the 4G Wi-Fi, and charging ports are available for your smartphones and AC laptop as well.

As the best and newest Ford Ranger, the 2019 model will have plenty of creature comforts as well. Depending on the trim level, you can look forward to leather seats, climate control, and features like heated steering wheel and heated seats that'll make you forget that it's winter just outside your truck.

The 2019 Ford Ranger arrives in the US after a long hiatus. More powerful and advanced than before, Ford's midsized pickup truck will make you forget it was ever gone. Get your first look here at TS&S Ford Madras!
