The 2019 Ford Ranger debuted at the largest car show on earth. Now it is official that the vehicle will return to the US after some while. Shortly after the premiere, we will see it in salons, and the starting price will be around $25,000. The truck comes with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine and three trim levels – XL, XLT, and Lariat.
When we talk about technologies, the 2019 Ford Ranger will offer plenty of new features. This will be working mule, which will be capable for the toughest off-road jobs. However, it is also stylish. The company offers 4×4 packages and eight color options.
The 2019 Ranger will take a position is small pickup class, where it will face the competition from the US and Japan. Ford’s archrival, Chevy, will face Raptor with new Colorado truck. GMC is preparing a new Canyon. All three Japanese truckmakers will be worried about the arrival of Ford Ranger. They will have to change plans and speed up innovations. Honda must do this with Ridgeline, Nissan with Frontier, and Toyota’s response is coming with new Tacoma.
2019 Ford Ranger vs Chevy Colorado
Turbocharged 4-cylinder unit on the 2019 Ford Ranger will deliver the same amount of power and torque as the V-6 unit on the Chevrolet Colorado. Ranger is using a 10-speed gearbox, while Colorado is coming with an 8-speed box. Similar towing capacities and payloads are expected, while the Blue Oval company will make a pickup truck with a better mileage.
2019 Ford Ranger vs GMC Canyon
The GMC Canyon shares a lot with Chevrolet Colorado. These two trucks are pretty similar. So, the same relation is with 2019 Ford Ranger. The canyon is capable to run 25 mpg on the highway. Ranger will have near value, but with much better output for an off-road drive.
2019 Ford Ranger vs Toyota Tacoma
The Toyota Tacoma is the most popular foreign truck in the US. Well, we can call it foreign, but it is built in North America. With the arrival of the 2019 Ford Ranger, Tacoma will get a new rival. Toyota is already preparing a new version of TRD package for a small pickup truck. With it, Tacoma will be able to compete on the market, since it lacks power and torque compared to 2019 Ranger and Chevy Colorado.
2019 Ford Ranger vs Nissan Frontier
Nissan is slowing down in the compact class. If the Frontier doesn’t get a huge update, we can’t call it a serious contender to 2019 Ford Ranger. Nissan’s small pickup can make only 260 horses, which is 50 hp less than the new Ranger. Torque level is the same, and Frontier also lacks the towing capacity, while having slightly higher fuel consumption than its rivals.
2019 Ford Ranger vs Honda Ridgeline
The Honda Ridgeline is a class leader in fuel economy. Also, the truck is quite powerful with an output of 280 hp. Nevertheless, it is still not a match to 310 hp delivered from the 2019 Ranger. Nevertheless, the Ridgeline is short on towing capacity. But, the company is considering a performance-tuned Type R model for massive power and torque boost.
