Ford engineers set a grueling test regimen to prepare the new Ford Ranger for the demands of multi-terrain travel. Durability trials on roads so punishing that robots were called in to do the driving. Days of constant shaking in the lab to help identify and reduce squeaks and rattles and to tune suspension parts and body mounts for durability and performance. Towing heavy loads over hours up steep grades at 100 degrees Fahrenheit. And traveling under heart-pounding, bone-jarring off-road conditions. The new Ford Ranger. It’s more than up to the challenge of taking on your toughest test.
Raw torque rules when you're taking on the rugged demands of off-road terrain. And the new Ford Ranger beats all other gas-powered pickups in its class with a torque rating of 310lb.-ft. The 270 horses under the hood are mighty impressive too. The 2.3l EcoBoost® is engineered with a twin-scroll turbocharger that extracts exhaust gas from pairs of cylinders in alternating sequence, maximizing pulse energy to the turbine wheel for responsiveness on demand with virtually no lag. The 10-speed SelectShift® automatic, featuring Ford-Patented technology, optimizes gear progressions and delivers smooth, quick shifting up and down the gearbox.
You carry gear — and lots of it. And the new Ford Ranger has these big advantages over other gas-powered midsize pickups: best-in-class maximum 1,860-lb. payload* and 7,500- lb. tow** ratings. Need to haul more? Tow more? Head out to your next adventure in the all-new Ranger.
The foundation of outstanding off-road capability is strength. That’s why Ford engineers made the backbone of the new Ranger a fully boxed, high-strength steel frame with six crossmembers — plus steel bumpers and tow hooks mounted directly to the frame for ruggedness and durability.
Versatility is a big reason people drive pickup trucks. And Ford Ranger offers two ways to go. The SuperCab provides seating for two up front with bucket seats and two in the rear with the bench seat, which includes under-seat storage. If you want the space behind the front seats only for carrying gear, you can have the rear seat removed in the XL model. And there’s the more spacious and comfortable Ranger SuperCrew® with the conveniences of four full-size doors, seating for up to five, and rear under-seat storage. The SuperCab comes with a 6-ft. bed, the SuperCrew with a 5-ft. bed.

It's rush hour on the interstate. You're towing a boat on a weekend getaway to a remote mountain lake. And you need to change lanes. If this situation sounds daunting, it usually is. But BLIS® with Trailer Coverage can help ease lane-change anxiety- it can alert you if a vehicle is detected in your vehicle's blind spot or even alongside the trailer you're towing.
Getting to your off-road destination should be as enjoyable as the adventure that awaits you. But hazards along the way can arise. This feature scans the road ahead and can alert you to potential collisions with vehicles or pedestrians detected in your path. If an impact becomes imminent and you don't take corrective action, the breaks apply automatically. But don't worry- they'll only activate if they're needed.
