The new 2019 Ford Ranger will inherit some toys from its big brother the F-150.
This week Ford announced the revived Ranger will offer the F-150’s Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage. After hooking up a trailer, radar housed in the tailgate will monitor blind spots all the way to the back of the trailer. The Ranger can also store up to three trailer profiles with different lengths. The radar system will know how far back to provide warnings when another vehicle is traveling next to the trailer.
The Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert is standard on Ranger XLT and Lariat models. A Terrain Management System, Trail Control, and an FX4 Off-Road Package are also available. Automatic Emergency Braking will come standard across the lineup.
The new Ranger comes with one powertrain choice, a 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbo 4-cylinder mated to a 10-speed automatic gearbox. Ford hasn’t released official power specs yet. Look for those and pricing closer to its on-sale date in early 2019.
