All-new Ford Ranger debuts

2019 Ford Ranger EMBARGOED DO NOT USE

Fully reengineered for the United States, Ranger will be built in MI with a 2.3-liter turbocharged four cylinder engine and 10-speed automatic transmission.

"Ranger has always held a special place in the hearts of truck fans", said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford's executive vice president of product development and purchasing. "The all-new Ranger is designed for today's midsize truck buyer, delivering even more utility, capability, and technology for those who blend city living with more off-the-grid adventures on weekends". The 2019 Ford Ranger will be offered in XL, XLT and Lariat trim levels with available Chrome and Sport appearance and FX Off-Road packages, and in SuperCab or SuperCrew body styles. Ford also says the Ranger is based on a high-strength steel frame and it can tow campers, ATVs, and watercraft, but the company isn't providing max tow ratings at this point. MacLeod used to drive an F-150 and now he drives a GMC Yukon SUV, but he prefers Ford trucks and will buy a Ranger if he likes what he sees.

Even its design is tough.

Thegrille and windshield design improve aerodynamics and reduce wind noise.

The truck sits on a high-strength steel frame with frame-mounted steel front and rear bumpers; the rear bumper has an integrated trailer hitch receiver. It will exclusively house a new version of the company's 2.3-liter EcoBoost four, though we don't know the output yet. This twin-scroll turbocharged engine is created to be efficient and durable with a forged-steel crankshaft, connecting rods, and chain-driven dual overhead cams. Ford isn't providing power figures yet, but says the 2.3 will be on par with competitors' V-6s and offer 4-cylinder fuel economy.

The Ranger will also have a 10-speed transmission, a fuel-saving feature that Ford is adding to many of its vehicles.

Leicester City holds Chelsea at home goalless
Chelsea fans began to turn on Antonio Conte during our stalemate with Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon. In that absurd move, the manager took two of his best players off the field when they needed a goal the most.

Ranger is designed for a new generation of midsize truck customers who head off-road to recharge. The FX4 Off-Road Package provides adds off-road-tuned shocks, all-terrain tires, a frame-mounted heavy-gauge steel front bash plate, frame-mounted skid plates and FX4 badges.

In addition, the FX4 also gets Ford's brand-new Trail Control system, which allows the driver to set a speed between 1 and 20 miles per hour that the truck will automatically maintain on the trail, taking care of the throttle and braking on its own. It includes four distinct drive modes - normal; grass, gravel and snow; mud and ruts; and sand. The system can shift on the fly to automatically change throttle responsiveness, transmission gearing and vehicle controls to tailor traction, driveability and performance to any given terrain or weather condition.

The FX4 Off-Road Package introduces Ford's all-new Trail Control technology. Trail Control will allow the driver to set and maintain a low vehicle speed (1-20 mph) while traveling through less-than ideal trails on the way to the next adventure.

Opt for the XLT or top-trim Lariat and Ford throws in lane keep assist, lane departure warning, a reverse sensing system, and a blind spot information system that accounts for trailers of different sizes into the pile of technological incentives. Adaptive cruise control and a pre-collision assist system with pedestrian detection will be standard on Lariat.

The latest version of Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system is optional, and comes with built-in WiFi and Ford+Alexa personal assistant, which can take notes, play music and interact with Google Home-compatible appliances. Power outlets allow charging of laptops and cell phones. "More than a quarter of Ranger owners trade in their trucks for a small truck from another brand, so this move gives highly loyal truck buyers a reason to stay in the Ford family".

Additional features include optional LED headlamps and taillamps.
