For years, there have been murmurs around Little Falls, NY of the Ford Ranger coming back to the Ford lineup, and the brand confirmed those rumors a while ago, but there are still many with questions on the mid-size truck. What engine will it have? What makes the Ranger different from the F-150? How much can the Ranger tow? When can I get my new Ford Ranger? All good questions, and all ones we want to answer for those interested in the new pickup, which is why we've highlighted some of the news and specs of the Ford Ranger below!

Why Should the Reintroduction of the Ford Ranger Excite Herkimer Drivers?

The Ford Ranger of old was a truck that fit many driver's needs perfectly as it was smaller than other Ford trucks like the F-150 but still capable of hauling and trailering as well as off-road fun. There hasn't been a new Ford Ranger for many years, and we've heard many guests bemoan the loss of one of their favorites, which is why we're happy the 2019 Ford Ranger will be on our lot before long. Ilion drivers will be delighted to know that it offers four-wheel drive while a 2.3-liter gas engine, with 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, and 10-speed automatic transmission comes standard. A diesel engine for the Ford Ranger is coming later in the year.

That powertrain allows the Ford Ranger to tow 7,500 pounds and haul 1,860 pounds in the bed, and it has many tech systems to help with these types of tasks. For instance, the Blind Spot Information System has trailer coverage while Trail Control™ is a cruise control type function for off-roading. Other tech systems range from a system for connecting Amazon Alexa with your Ranger to Auto Start-Stop to reduce fuel use while idling.
