The 2019 Ford Ranger Reinvented
This year, Ford announced that the new 2019 Ford Ranger will be on the market early next year and we can’t wait! It has been nearly seven years since the Ranger came out and there some serious improvements in the compact pickup. Here’s a brief overview on the alternative to the classic F-150 that will be sure to turn heads as soon as its released.
What To Expect
The North American version of the Ranger has a new, fully boxed frame, a steel body and steel front bumper. The tailgate is aluminum with a Ranger stamped spoiler. With four full-size doors in Supercab and Supercrew cab options, eight new wheel choices and eight colour selections, the new 2019 model offers optional chrome and sport appearance packages. The interior will have two colour choices: Ebony and Medium Ash.
There is ample space to seat up to 5 passengers making the 2019 Ford Ranger the perfect truck for trips up to the cottage or getting around the city with your family comfortably. There’s also Sync 3 with an 8.0-inch touchscreen and waterproof storage under the rear seat.
Rick Bolt, the Ranger’s program engineer proclaims, “we expect best-in-class payload when we launch” and is certain that Ford has made “a serious truck.”
