All-new Ranger is the most efficient midsize pickup in America
Ford has published official information on the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger’s fuel economy ratings, as estimated by EPA.
As things stand, the new Ranger returns 21 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined. Note that these figures refer to the 4×2 trucks.
Those who opt for a 4×4 Ranger are looking at EPA-estimated ratings of 20 mpg city, 24 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined.
Either way, these figures make the 2019 Ford Ranger the most fuel-efficient gasoline-powered midsize pickup truck you can buy in America.
The new Ranger uses a 2.3-liter engine of the EcoBoost family good for 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. Bolted to the powerplant is a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Other gimmicks that boost its capability off the beaten path include the likes of Terrain Management System and Trail Control.
Ford says Ranger production is currently underway at the Michigan Assembly Plant, with the first trucks expected to reach dealers in January 2019.
