2019 Ford Ranger Features

There are three trim levels of the 2019 Ford Ranger Crew Cab similar to the SuperCab configuration, which is also offered in the same trim levels. There is also an AWD drivetrain option for all of those trims, which adds around $4,000 to the price.

The base trim is XL, followed by XLT and LARIAT. The price for those following trims begins at $24,300 and reaches $32,210.

Almost all the features required for an excellent pickup truck are found on the XL & XLT trims. On the other hand, the LARIAT trim does not get many new features, but it does get some upgrades and enhancements to the existing features. The list of features that has been diversified on all the trims has been listed below in the table in detail:

Which trim should you buy?

If you are planning to purchase a Ford Ranger Crew Cab, we recommend going with the XLT trim.

There is an approximate price increase of $3,000 over the base model on this XLT. The XLT trim makes the most sense, though, as it offers the best selection of standard features.

Adaptive cruise control, rear-seat power ducts, steering wheel-mounted controls are some of the features included. There is also an optional package in this trim, the Ford Co-Pilot Technology Package, which adds a wide range of modern safety technologies.

2019 Ford Ranger Engine and Performance

8.0/10

An all-new 2.4L EcoBoost Inline-4 gives you around 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Ford also went one step further by combining its powertrain with a ten-speed automatic transmission that works flawlessly. 

Some of its rivals, including the Colorado and Ridgeline, offer V6 engines as standard or an option. Still, it can compete fairly well with the V6s in this class.

In addition, you can also choose between an RWD and an AWD drivetrain, and the latter is always recommended if you want to experience more confidence while driving.

It is smooth to shift through that 10-speed transmission in Sport mode, you will not experience any difficulties. In normal mode, the transmission doesn't respond quite as well as it does in sport mode, and there is still room for improvement here.

Whenever it comes to acceleration power, the Ranger won't let you down in any way. Despite Colorado's reputation as one of the fastest midsize trucks on the market, the Ford Ranger also performs well. From zero to sixty MPH, the Ranger sprints in approximately 6.3 seconds, which is quite fast. It's only a few milliseconds slower than Colorado.

There is a V6 in the Ridgeline, as well as a larger engine capacity for this class. However, when it comes to showing what they can do, the Ranger & Colorado completely outperform Ridgeline.

Among the class's fastest models, the Ranger can complete the 0-60 range in 6.3 seconds while Colorado does it in 6.1 seconds.

How well does the 2019 Ford Ranger Crew Cab handle?

Ranger Crew Cab's ride and handling have various limitations attached to it which makes it lag behind the competition in this case. On bumpy roads and slick surfaces, the truck remains stable. The steering response seems to be very slow, and it seems that your command is not affecting the truck's movement smoothly.

As well, its transmission feels very rough in normal mode, which is very likely to disappoint you. Although the truck's body roll can be felt a little during cornering, the AWD version is available as an option, which will likely alleviate the problem to some extent.

Comparing this truck to its competition, this truck doesn't have all the characteristics it requires to be a good off-roader. Although, an optional off-road package is available which you can purchase if you wish to make use of some of those features.

Overall, you can consider its ride and handling performance to be below average. 

Braking Performance

Size-wise and dimensionally, the 2019 Ford Ranger is one of the largest midsize trucks in its class. Because of this, the braking ability of this truck has been compromised. To completely stop from 60-0, the truck has to travel nearly 138 feet, which is poor considering the class standards.

While the brake rotors are decently sized, they are smaller than most of its competitors by a little. Apart from all these things, ABS, emergency brake assist, and electronic brake distribution are also featured in the car to assist you in braking.

The Honda Ridgeline has the biggest rotors compared to the other vehicles and is also the heaviest.

2019 Ford Ranger Fuel Economy

9.0/10

As a whole, the Ranger has a very good fuel economy when compared to its competition. In the city, you get 21 miles per gallon, while on the highway, you get around 26 miles per gallon.

Once again, this truck has the best combined range with 23 miles. But as a result of the smaller fuel tank capacity, it does not have the same range as all of its competitors.

The Ford Ranger's fuel economy is better than all the competition by a small margin. The GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado have the biggest fuel tanks here, each holding up to 21 gallons of fuel. Due to this, both of these rival trucks of Ranger have the longest fuel range in this class.

2019 Ford Ranger Interior

8.0/10

The interiors of the 2019 Ford Ranger are very well built with a lot of quality materials incorporated throughout. Its layout and design, however, have remained relatively unchanged over the past few years, resulting in a somewhat dated appearance when compared with its competitors. Otherwise, its quality is very high, making the cabin a very pleasant place to be in.

With this truck, you will have plenty of room to sit comfortably in the front row. Both the legroom and the headroom space on offer can accommodate most adult body types. Meanwhile, the rear spacing is quite narrow, which makes it the smallest in its class.

The interiors of the truck are made interesting and enjoyable by a variety of comfort features that it offers. This truck features automatic climate control, a leathered steering wheel, heated leather seats with an 8-way power-adjustable feature and lumbar support, and many more features.

Some notable interior features include:

  • Telescoping steering column adjustment
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Cruise control w/steering wheel controls
  • Leather upholstery
  • Heated front seats

The Ford Ranger has excellent front legroom, but the winner here is the Canyon and Colorado with almost 45 inches of legroom. In the second row, Honda Ridgeline comes out on top, while Ranger comes in at the very end.

Ridgeline wins the cargo capacity class again, followed by Ranger and the other two rivals. Despite the excellent towing capacity of Ranger, the Canyon and Colorado win out here with 7,700 pounds of maximum towing capacity.

What’s there to keep you entertained?

In terms of infotainment, the 2019 Ford Ranger doesn't have much to offer, but there are enough features to meet your needs. The truck comes standard with a 4.2-inch infotainment screen embedded with Ford Sync technology. However, the LARIAT trim comes with a larger 8.0-inch touch screen.

This truck has 6 speakers that provide clear sound throughout the cabin. Additionally, some other basic features include remote vehicle control, enhanced voice recognition, FordPass Connect, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, and smart charging USB ports

Some of the highlights of the infotainment system are as follows:

  • 6-speaker system
  • 8.0-inch display
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi
  • Single Smart Charging USB Port
  • USB ports for charging

2019 Ford Ranger Exterior

8.0/10

The Ranger is a pretty big mid-size pickup truck, and you'll notice it as soon as you see it. It is one of the heaviest trucks in its class, as well as one of the biggest trucks out there by height and width.

While the styling of this truck hasn't changed much over time, it still carries the classy Ford look that looks sleek. A large grille with its branding covers the front of the vehicle. Halogen daytime running lights are also attached to the front.

The standard wheels are 17.0-inch steel wheels, and if you wish to upgrade to alloy wheels, that can also be obtained as an optional upgrade. Overall, Ranger looks great from every angle, and there is not much to criticize.

Some of the standout exterior features are as follows:

  • Cargo lamp w/high mount stop light
  • Tailgate/rear door lock
  • 18.0-inch alloy wheels
  • Daytime running lights

When compared with its rivals, the Ranger is quite a large truck. As a result, maneuvering in city conditions may sometimes be difficult. Despite having the highest ground clearance of all, Ranger's sub-par suspension prevents it from being an effective off-roader.

2019 Ford Ranger Safety

9.9/10

The 2019 Ford Ranger has not yet been tested by NHTSA or IIHS, but we will update this section when the official test results arrive. 

Besides the base model XL, the other two trims come with loads of hi-tech safety features as standard. All of these features can be gained by the base model via an optional package called Ford Co-Pilot 360, which comes standard on the XLT and LARIAT models.

Some of the standout safety features are as follows:

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Blind-spot information system
  • Low tire pressure warning system
  • Lane departure warning system
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Pre-collision assist
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane-keeping assist

2019 Ford Ranger Competition

7.0/10

2019 Ford Ranger Crew Cab vs 2019 GMC Canyon Crew Cab

Compared to the Ford Ranger, the GMC Canyon has superior handling, space, towing capacity, and it also comes with a V6 engine as an option. Ford offers better acceleration and power, as well as better payload capacity, cargo, and advanced safety features which are either not available or optional on the Canyon.

In general, it's pretty much a tie since both are good in other respects. Although to be specific, Canyon does have the upper hand based on more merits than Ranger in this case. However, you cannot overlook Ranger at the same time.

2019 Ford Ranger Crew Cab vs 2019 Honda Ridgeline Crew Cab

Ranger is better overall than Ridgeline considering their class. A major reason why buyers choose the Ranger over the Ridgeline is that it has a higher towing capacity and payload capacity.

However, the Ridgeline has a better interior and space than the Ranger. But, when it comes to price and utility, the Ranger is better.

2019 Ford Ranger Crew Cab vs 2019 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab

Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon are almost identical in terms of features, dimensions, and characteristics. For Colorado vs Ranger, our stance should be similar to what we mentioned in the comparison with GMC Canyon above.

A head-to-head comparison of Colorado and Ranger shows that Colorado is slightly better than the Ranger. However, the Ranger offers a little more in terms of safety, cargo, power, and payload.

2019 Ford Ranger Final Verdict

8.8/10

The 2019 Ford Ranger Crew Cab is a very good mid-size truck with a lot of power and acceleration. It has all the trucking features, but the off-roading capability and handling are mediocre. 

Despite that, it is a great truck, and one can definitely consider it as an option. However, before making a final decision, it would be wise to at least look at the Canyon and Colorado as they are also excellent trucks in this class.
