If you are searching for the perfect truck to take all your off-road adventures in, but don’t want something too big or too small, then the Ford Ranger may be exactly what you are looking for. This midsize truck offers all the agility and fuel efficiency benefits of a smaller truck, with the upgraded power and versatility, closer to what a full-sized truck would offer. Coming in a variety of trims, you are sure to find the perfect Ranger to suit all your daily endeavors and off-road adventures.
The strength of the 2020 Ford Ranger is a step above the rest. The new Ford Ranger is ready to command the road with its, class-exclusive 10-speed transmission and compelling 2.3L EcoBoost® engine. The astounding, best-in-class, 310 lb.-ft of torque is ready to conquer any off-road trail conditions the world throws your way. The Ranger’s engine was engineered with a twin-scroll turbocharger so that it can maximize the pulse energy to the turbine wheel to eliminate any lag in the engine’s response.
Want the ability to tow a trailer and bring the whole family? Then simply add the Trailer Tow Package to get an impressive 7,500 lbs. of towing capacity. Bring everything you want to travel with, including the kitchen sink. Decide you don’t want to haul the trailer at all? Then simply pack the bed as full as you can get it, with its best-in-class maximum 1,860-lb. payload rating, you won’t have to worry about packing too much.
In the past, one of the biggest downfalls of owning a larger vehicle has been the lack of fuel efficiency. The Ranger has bridged the gap between power and fuel efficiency with the impressive, 21 mpg City / 26 mpg Highway that it provides.
