Ford is always trying to make its pickup trucks the best in their respective segments — and the 2019 Ford Ranger is no exception. As the newest addition to the Ford truck lineup, the Ranger sits in the midsize truck segment quite nicely, offering best-in-class gasoline torque, maximum payload, and maximum towing capacity.
Now, it looks like the Ranger will also be considered the most fuel-efficient gasoline-powered midsize pickup in the industry.
“Midsize truck customers have been asking for a pickup that’s Built Ford Tough,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “And Ranger will deliver with durability, capability, and fuel efficiency, while also providing in-city maneuverability and the freedom desired by many midsize pickup truck buyers to go off the grid.”
The Ranger 4×2 will have an EPA-estimated fuel-efficiency rating of 21 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. 4×4 models will have a best-in-class efficiency of 20 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.*
These fuel-efficiency numbers are thanks to the Ranger’s 2.3-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine. This powertrain puts out 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, while still managing to tow a best-in-class maximum of 7,500 pounds and a best-in-class maximum payload of 1,860 pounds.
