The Ford Ranger
When you’re looking to purchase a Ford vehicle, you expect the car to be tough and built to last. The Ford Ranger is no exception, as it is the durable foundation of pickup trucks that has been tested under some of the most extreme conditions that Mother Nature has to offer. Regardless of where you’re headed, the Ford Ranger will get you there in style and comfort. Here are some of the highlights.
Did you know that the Ford engineers themselves put the Ranger up to the test? The Ford team spent days on-end in the lab working on durability trials to see how the Ranger would hold up in extreme conditions. The first few rounds were so intense that the robots had to take over in order to drive. After a trial and error process, the Ranger is now more ready than ever to take on your adventure. We’re talking hauling heavy tow loads for hours at a time up a steep mountain in 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
Best-in-Class Gas Torque
Having powerful torque is key if you want to navigate uncharted territory, and the Ford Ranger does not disappoint. It beats all other gas-powered pickup trucks in its class with a torque rating of 310 pounds per foot. The engine has 270 horsepower and the 2.3L EcoBoost has a twin-scroll turbocharger in order to maximize energy.
The Most Fuel-Efficient Gas-Powered Midsize Pickup in America
If you need another reason to love the Ford Ranger, it is also the most fuel-efficient gas-powered midsize pickup truck in America. There is an EPA-estimated rating of 21 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway, and a combined total of 26 mpg. Spend more time on the road and less time at the gas station.
Enjoy Your Drive
Thanks to updated technology, you’ll always enjoy your time behind the wheel of the Ford Ranger. The inside of the car is just as impressive and stunning as the outside of the car, with technologies such as driver-assist features, voice-activated SYNC and FordPass Connect. Stay in your lane thanks to the lane-keeping system and avoid accidents with Pre-Collision Assist that comes with Automatic Emergency Braking.
