2019 Ford Ranger Features


Colors

When the all-new Ford Ranger finally comes to market it in 2019, throughout the available XL, XLT and Lariat launch trims, 8 colors options will be available. From neutral to the most vibrant colors you can find on a pick-up, its here. Although we don't know specifically how all these color options will be assigned to each trim, given the buyer demographic Ford is trying to attract and the lifestyle projected around the Ranger, expect to see pallets that suit everyone's taste. Fortunately consumers already got a first look at some of these with the round of auto shows that just ended. This years New York Auto Show should have some surprises.

All-Terrain Capability

As a true midsize truck, the all-new Ranger will be just as capable as its rivals. The most stand out of its off-roading capabilities will be the optional FX4 Off-Road package which will be exclusive to LXT and Lariat trims. Even if you don't opt for FX4, fundamentally the Ranger was built with short overhangs, higher ground clearance, an adequate torque 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, and many more. Still, there's no denying that the FX4 package is only true way to experience how adventure-ready the Ranger can be. Features like off-road tuned shocks, all-terrain tires, skid plates, bash plates, Terrain Control Technology and more make all the difference.

Quote:
FX4 OFF-ROAD PACKAGE
This package includes bash and skid plates to help protect the undercarriage from damage, all-terrain tires that feature an aggressive tread pattern for enhanced traction off road, and a status screen that lets you monitor the pitch and roll of the truck and steering angle of the front wheels.

TRAIL CONTROL
Brake and throttle control can be difficult over rough or rocky terrain. Available Trail Control is like an off-road cruise control. With the push of a button it engages the engine, transmission and brakes to maintain a constant speed of between approximately one and 20 mph.

TERRAIN MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The available Terrain Management System lets you shift on the fly into one of four modes -- Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud Ruts, Sand and Normal mode. Each mode has specific mapping for the throttle and transmission, which adjusts throttle tip-in and shift points.

Try to avoid water higher than the bottom of the hubs and proceed slowly. Refer to your owner's manual for detailed information regarding driving through water.

ELECTRONIC LOCKING REAR DIFFERENTIAL
The available rear-locking differential is designed to be used at low speeds on low-traction surfaces. It provides excellent off-road performance in mud, snow, sand or gravel. It also excels on steep or slippery grades such as boat ramps.

Driver-Assist Technologies

Innovation didn't stop at those key areas that will make this all-new Ford ranger what it is, Ford made sure to include tech that slightly hints towards an autonomous future. Technology like Blind Sport Information System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane-Keeping Assist along with Pre-Collision Assist and Pedestrian Detection all help to usher in a new era of midsize pickup trucks. Ranger Lariat and XLT owners get standard BLIS with Trailer Coverage along with all driver-assist tech. Just as we seen with the F150, Lariat trims will be well equipped, but won't come cheap. Pricing should be announced later this year.

The all-new 2019 Ranger features a number of driver-assist technologies that help make driving easier and your adventures a lot more fun.

BLIS
The available BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with class-exclusive trailer coverage alerts you when a vehicle is detected in the blind spot of your Ranger. But its capability doesn’t stop there. To help when you’re towing, it also alerts you when a vehicle is detected in the blind spot of your trailer.

Cruise Control
Available adaptive cruise control is a step beyond conventional cruise control. When its radar sensor detects that the vehicle in front of you is slowing, it automatically slows your vehicle down. After traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes the preset speed and distance.

Lane-Keeping System
Available Lane-Keeping System can alert you to unintentional lane drifting. Should you begin to drift out of your lane. the available lane-keeping system can alert you by vibrating the steering wheel and/or apply steering torque. to assist you to steer the vehicle back into the lane.

Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection
Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection will alert you if it senses a potential collision with a car or pedestrian in front of you. if you don’t react in time, the brakes will precharge and increase brake sensitivity to provide full responsiveness. If corrective action is not taken and a collision becomes imminent, the brakes can apply automatically.

Really looking forward to some field testing, to see just how off road capable the new Ranger is. Seeing as how its adopted a lot of the new technology from the Raptor F150, I wouldn't be surprised if it outperforms the other mid size pickups. It would be nice if we could get a solid confirmation on the powertrain.

Doubt it'll outperform the F-150 Raptor since the Ranger is supposed to be more affordable, but even the standard model should be able to handle the rougher trails relatively well so long as you get the Terrain Management System and rear-locking differential option. The tires you can get yourself.

When it comes to street performance the Ranger might be quicker off the line and even right down to the quarter mile but on a longer run the F-150 Raptor should be able to beat it. Weight is a huge factor.

I didn't say outperform the F150, I said outperform its rival midsize pickups. A lot of the tech coming over from the F150 variant was very expensive to implement. Wont say no to getting it in a cheaper package.

I didn't say it would outperform the F150 variant, I said other pickups in the segment. I know Nissan has plans to bring a rival to market, and I've been hearing whispers of a new Colorado performance trim.
