The 2019 Ranger officially arrives in Car Pro Certified Dealer showrooms in early 2019. Its return to the mid-size pickup segment comes after an 8-year hiatus.

“Ford truck fans demanded a midsize pickup that’s ‘Built Ford Tough,’ and we’re delivering with our all-new Ranger that’s specially designed and engineered for American truck customers,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of global operations. “At the same time, we’re revitalizing our Michigan Assembly Plant and securing good-paying jobs for our hourly employees here in the U.S.”

    Stop-start?

      Hi Craig! Yes the Ranger will be equipped with Stop Start but we expect it will come with a disable button. We’ll be able to confirm it to you in December when we get our first look at it.

    Interested in pulling behind a rv. Do you know if the new Ranger can be flat towed. Thanks

      John,

      I’ve not heard either way and they haven’t released all the specs. Holler back at me in about a month and I think we’ll have full info on the truck. Thanks for listening to the show!
