While the Ford Ranger isn’t in the US market anymore ever since 2011, the truth is that this didn’t happen in the rest of the world. Ford tried to replace this model by using a smaller engine on their F150. However, this didn’t turn out as good as they were expecting and they are now going to make the 2019 Ford Ranger reenter the market again.
The 2019 Ford Ranger is set to have a lot of improvements. Even though it is a bit too early to know a lot of details, here’s what we think about the 2019 Ford Ranger.
In order to stay on top of the latest debuts, check out the top automotive news.
2019 Ford Ranger Release Date
Even though Ford didn’t disclose the debut date for the 2019 Ford Ranger, we believe that it will occur during 2018, more specifically at the Detroit Auto Show.
2019 Ford Ranger Price
While it’s almost impossible to predict the exact starting price of the new 2019 Ford Ranger, the fact is that most rumors are pointing the starting price of this new truck to be around the $20,000. The top end models should be near the $40,000.
2019 Ford Ranger Redesign and Changes
We believe that Ford will be using the same chassis on both the US and the European models for the 2019 Ford Ranger. In addition, they will most likely share the some of the engines as well as most of the running gear. However, in terms of design and engine options, the US version of the 2019 Ford Ranger should be completely different and the US market should have more engine options as well as trim levels.
The regular version of the 2019 Ford Ranger seems to be very similar to the European model. The front should incorporate some details of the F150. However, the rest of the truck should remain pretty similar.
One of the versions that it isn’t still confirmed is the Raptor Ranger even though many people are looking forward to it. The tests on the open road were already spotted and this can mean that it’s on its way. If this is the case, the Raptor Ranger should come with a front end similar to the Raptor, with some large wheels, beefier fenders, and an aggressive off-road bumper.

2019 Ford Ranger Specs
Most rumors are pointing to the 2019 Ford Ranger have, at least, three different engine options.
The base model of the 2019 Ford Ranger should come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost that is capable of producing 245 of horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. The next engine should be a diesel one but there are no convincing rumors about it. It can come with either the 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine that is capable of producing 240 of horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque or with a 3.2-liter inline-five engine that is currently being used on the Ford Transit.
In what concerns with the last and better engine that should be included on the Raptor version of the 2019 Ford Ranger, we are expecting to see the 2-7-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine which is able to produce 310 of horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.
2019 Ford Ranger Interior
One of the aspects that we are really not looking forward to seeing is the interior. According to most rumors, the 2019 Ford Ranger interior should be very basic. It may include the old Sync infotainment system and the AC. But that’s about all.
However, there should be some new additions in what concerns with safety so that the 2019 Ford Ranger can meet the latest regulations.
