Ford announces its all-new midsize pickup for North America will deliver best-in-class payload, gas torque and towing capability with 1,860 lbs. of maximum payload.
The 2019 Ford Ranger’s standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost produces 270 hp and, more importantly, 310 lb.-ft. of torque – the most engine-turning power of any gas engine in the midsize pickup segment, including V6 engines from competitors.
Paired with a class-exclusive 10-speed transmission, Ranger features a unique combination of power and capability.
Anchored by a high-strength steel frame and robust solid rear axle with Hotchkiss suspension, Ranger can conventionally tow 7,500 lbs. when equipped with the tow package and a trailer brake controller.
Production begins later this year at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, MI.
