2019 Ford Ranger to compete the Honda Ridgeline, Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma

Ford has just announced the technical information regarding its 2019 Ranger pickup truck that will be available on the North American market later this year. 

 

And we can confirm that the new Ford pickup truck has higher capabilities than its rivals in the same pickup segment.

 

The mid-size 2019 Ford Ranger will be equipped with a 2.3-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, along with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Competitions of the new 2019 Ford Ranger will be the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, Honda Ridgeline, Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma.

 

According to the manufacturer:

 

"The proven 2.3L EcoBoost® engine with Auto Start-Stop technology is designed to optimize power and efficiency using turbocharging and direct gasoline injection. It’s also paired with the innovative, class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission."

 

The Ranger will also have a maximum load capacity of 844 kilograms (1,860 pounds), more than the competitors too. In addition, when equipped with a towing package and a trailer brake control system, the 2019 Ford Ranger can pull up to 7,500 pounds (7,500 kg).
