2019 Ford Ranger Lineup: A Visual Comparison By Model And Trim Level

Following the discontinuation of the Ford Ranger for the North American market in 2011, Ford reintroduced the truck for the U.S. and Canadian markets for the 2019 model year. The new Ranger rides on the Ford T6 platform and slotting into the midsize pickup segment, as compared to the previous model year’s compact truck classification. The revived Ford Ranger began production at the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant on October 22nd, 2018, and U.S. customers have three trim levels and two body styles to choose from.

To help break down the 2019 Ford Ranger lineup, we’re taking a look at what the various model and trim levels have to offer in terms of exterior appearance.

Trims & Body Styles

The 2019 Ford Ranger is offered in three trim levels. From base to range-topping, the three trim levels are:

  • XL
  • XLT
  • Lariat

From a body style standpoint, there are two configurations:

  • SuperCab plus a six-foot box
  • SuperCrew plus a five-foot box

For the sake of consistency, each trim level is in the SuperCrew/five-foot box body style and covered in Oxford White paint.

Front Fascia

The 2020 Ford Ranger lineup offers three different front fascia configurations differentiated by the following elements: the grille, grille surround, headlamps, fog lamps, front bumper and tow hooks.

About The 2019 Ford Ranger

The original Ford Ranger model for the North American market spanned three generations across the 1983 – 2012 model years. In 2015, Ford signed an agreement with the United Auto Workers union that included the return of the nameplate to the U.S. and Canada, as well as a $700 million retooling effort at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan. Production of the new Ford Ranger began in 2018 for the 2019 model year.

In addition to the adaptation of the Ford T6 platform for the U.S. and Canada, the new Ranger also features a new tailgate with spoiler, a new exterior design, an updated chassis, and a new powertrain combination.

Under the hood, the 2019 Ford Ranger draws motivation from the 2.3L EcoBoost inline four-cylinder gasoline engine, which mates to the Ford 10-speed automatic transmission. Both 4×2 and 4×4 drive configurations are available. Output is rated at 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, with a claimed maximum tow rating of 7,500 pounds when equipped with the optional tow package and trailer brake controller.
