Specific horsepower, torque and capability ratings for the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger haven’t been released yet, but we do know what you’ll find under its twin-power dome hood. The all-new 2019 Ranger is powered by a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that has been specifically engineered to optimize your efficiency and capability. This 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine is able to do that thanks to its direct fuel injection technology, its twin-scroll turbocharger and its enhanced 16-valve design. This engine also features a forged-steel crankshaft and connecting rods for added durability, along with chain-driven overhead cams. The 2019 Ford Ranger’s power, efficiency and capability is further optimized thanks to its class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission.
“Ranger’s proven 2.3-liter EcoBoost provides a torque target on par with competing V6 engines, but with the efficiency of a four-cylinder. When you pair that with its 10-speed transmission, you’ve got one of the most versatile, powerful and efficient powertrains in the segment.” – Hau Thai-Tang, Ford Executive Vice President, Product Development and Purchasing
