It is official! Ranger returns in 2019. The billboard that stands on the web-site of the Ford is clear. However, no further details are available from official sources. Nevertheless, there are always sharp lenses of photographers and truck fans to catch every appearance outside the factories and development rooms. First spy shots of 2019 Ford Ranger are already available, so we can focus on parts camouflage can’t hide.
The truck is available for purchase in many countries around the world. Success in North America made chiefs expand the market for Ford Ranger. Nevertheless, in 2011, the US carmaker had cut the production in its homeland. Factories in other parts of the world continued to make the Ranger, and this pickup became one of the best-selling vehicles in Australia. Now, buyers in the biggest automotive market will have a chance to buy it again as 2019 Ranger.
2019 Ford Ranger Spy Shots and Styling
Design of the 2019 Ford Ranger will follow the trend set by a global edition of the pickup. So, fans in USA and Canada can see its predecessors find out what to expect. Nevertheless, some details will make it unique and special. Bumpers, headlights, the grille will suffer a revisit. Also, larger air intakes and exhaust tips will make Ranger more aggressive. Under the codename T6, this vehicle is using a body-on-frame platform.
2019 Ford Ranger Drivetrain and Specs
Under the bonnet of the 2019 Ford Ranger, we could see a surprise. So far we can only compare the upcoming truck with its siblings from other markets. But well, it comes only with diesel powertrains, and we are not sure that US buyers are going to like it. Ford will probably save either 2.2-l four-cylinder or 3.2-liter inline- mill for North America. These two can produce 160 hp and 200 hp. Also, specs of diesel units show the high output of torque. However, it would be wise to add at least one gasoline powertrain to the 2019 Ranger.
Ford Ranger Raptor Also Coming to the US
The 2019 Ford Ranger hasn’t arrived yet, and some fans already want the Raptor too. This vehicle is confirmed for 2018, but for 2019 and North America nothing is sure yet. But, what could be a drivetrain for it? It seems like 2.0-l inline-four is an excellent solution for the company. They could also give a chance to the robust 3.5-l V-6 from F-150 truck. Finally, a 2.7-l EcoBoost is also a possibility. But, experts are sharing the opinion that this is the least likely powertrain, due to the better performance-tuning capability of other two engines.
