Ford unveils revived Ranger pickup at Detroit auto show

Ford expects to make a big splash in the midsize pickup market when it revives the beloved Ranger nameplate on an all-new pickup early in 2019.

The new Ford Ranger 2019 has been revealed at the Detroit Auto Show. USA sales are up 83 percent since 2014 as a new generation of midsize truck buyers seek more maneuverable, fuel-efficient pickups. “The all-new Ranger is designed for todays midsize truck buyer, delivering even more utility, capability and technology for those who blend city living with more off-the-grid adventures on weekends.”.

The Blue Oval has kept its promise - previous year they were revealing the Ranger nameplate would come back home - and here it is, the 2019 Ranger, featuring a 2.3L EcoBoost, 10-speed automatic, and even a dedicated FX4 Off-Road variant.

He later added that the midsize truck will come with a steel frame, as "real trucks don't have fascias". A few years later, General Motors Co. launched the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, selling more than half a million units combined in the USA and generating about $17.5 billion in revenue. Generally speaking, transmissions with more gear ratios are more efficient because they allow the engine to spend more time operating with its most efficient speed range.

Ford states fuel-consumption concerns and America's distate for diesel following the Volkswagen emission scandal as reason for its smaller and exclusive engine offering. It has a terrain management system that automatically adjusts the transmission and vehicle controls for driving in snow, mud or sand. Targeted at the outdoor enthusiast, this new midsize truck displays an athletic look, flawless for off-roading, camping, and cycling. With a turbo-4 and a 10-speed, you can bet that fuel economy will also be at or near the top of the class.
