The 2019 Ford Ranger is a mid-size pickup truck sold by Ford Motor Company. The 2019 model year marked several key stages for the Ranger, including:

  • The return of the Ranger to the United States and Canada after being discontinued in 2011
  • The launch of the Ranger Raptor in International markets (and potentially in the U.S. and Canada)
  • Various updates to the International-market Ranger

North American Market Return

The last Ford Ranger produced for North America was produced at Ford’s Twin Cities Assembly plan in Minnesota on December 22nd, 2011. This model was first a compact and then a midsize pickup truck that spanned three generations across the 1983 – 2012 model years.

The first indicator that Ford was planning to bring the Ranger T6 to North America came in 2015, when Ford Motor Company and the United Auto Workers (UAW) union signed an agreement for Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan. As part of the agreement, the factory would undergo a $700 million retooling and see Ford replace production of the Ford Focus and Ford C-Max vehicles made at the plant at that time with the Ford Ranger and an SUV variant, the Ford Bronco.

Production of the Ranger started in calendar year 2018 as a 2019 model, while production of the Bronco will start in late 2020 as a 2021 model (see more on the 2021 Bronco).

Body Styles, Cab & Bed Configurations

In the U.S. and Canada, the 2019 Ford Ranger was offered as a mid-size pickup truck in either SuperCab or SuperCrew configurations. A two-door version will not be available in North America, though such a cab is available in international markets.

An SUV variant of the 2019 Ranger will be available as the new 2021 Ford Bronco.

Internationally, the Ranger is available is available in the following cab configurations:

  • Single Cab Chassis Cab (without a bed)
  • Single Cab Pickup (two doors with a bed)
  • Super Cab (two front doors and two rear half-doors with a bed)
  • Double Cab (four doors with a bed), called SuperCrew in U.S.

Platform

The 2019 Ford Ranger rides on the Ford T6 platform shared across the following vehicles:

  • 2011 Ford Ranger and newer (International markets, Ranger T6, 2011 – present)
    • 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor (International markets, Ranger T6, 2019 – present)
  • 2015 Ford Everest and newer (International markets, 2015 – present)
    • Ford Everest is sold as Ford Endeavour in India
  • Ford Ranger (USA and Canada, 2019 – present)
  • 2021 Ford Bronco (USA and Canada, 2021 – future)

Adaptations For US/Canadian Markets

Besides making the adaptations to the Ranger’s T6 platform for the U.S. and Canadian markets (see Platform section), Ford also made the following changes to the Ranger:

  • Addition of a new tailgate with locking feature
  • Addition of spoiler
  • Revised exterior design
  • Revised chassis
  • New powertrain

Powertrain

The 2019 Ford Ranger is powered by a proven 2.3-liter EcoBoost inline four-cylinder gasoline engine mated to the new Ford 10-speed automatic transmission, the only 10-speed automatic gearbox in the segment. Though the engine is used elsewhere in the Ford vehicle line with different power outputs, its power production in the 2019 Ranger lands at 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque.

Ford’s all-new 2.0L Bi-Turbo diesel engine did not make an appearance in the 2019 North America-market  Ranger lineup, but is expected to become an option in the future. In the International-market Ranger, the all-new engine is mated to Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission, with the powertrain combination being rated at 211 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.

Both two-wheel-drive (sending power to the rear wheels) and four-wheel drive models are available.

Ranger Raptor

On February 7th, 2018, Ford announced the Ranger Raptor in Bangkok, Thailand for the international-market Ranger. It’s worth noting that Ford has no plans to release the Ranger Raptor in North America at this time. Designed to combine Ford Performance DNA with Ranger’s renowned toughness and engineering capability, the Ranger Raptor represents a new benchmark in midsize off-road pickup capability.

Highlights of the Ranger Raptor include:

  • Standard front and rear Fox Racing Shox shock absorbers to help travel at high speeds off-road
  • Increased ride height, wider track and improved approach and departure angles that ensure extreme off-road capability and stability
  • All-new Watt’s linkage rear suspension with coilover rear springs that help ensure rear axle lateral stability off-road while also improving ride and handling
  • New powertrain combination of a 2.0-liter Bi-Turbo diesel engine and 10-speed transmission, offering smooth torque and power through independent turbos and closer gear ratios over a wider overall span

For says that the Ranger Raptor has been tested in the world’s toughest conditions to deliver an unrivaled off-road package that astonishes and excites drivers.
