It’s been a while, but Ford is finally returning to the midsize pickup truck segment – and they’re doing so in a big way! With the 2018 Ford F-150 and the 2018 Ford Super Duty lineup dominating their respective segments, Ford is looking to reassert its dominance over the midsize pickup truck class with the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger. And, let us tell you, the all-new 2019 Ranger has it all – a powerful, capable and efficient engine; a tough, rugged and dependable exterior; a comfortable, functional and feature-filled interior; and the ability to go off-road in a way other trucks only dream about. Now, we may have caught you by surprise with that last one, but the 2019 Ford Ranger comes with a wide array of new off-road features and capabilities, including an available FX4 Off-Road Package – all of which we’re going to go over right here.

The all-new 2019 Ford Ranger will feature all the power, capability and fuel efficiency you’d expect from a Ford pickup truck when it arrives here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL, in early 2019. But it’s also going to combine that on-road supremacy with some all-new off-road capabilities. That’s especially true when you add the available FX4 Off-Road Package to the mix. That’s because the FX4 Off-Road Package includes off-road-tuned shocks, all-terrain tires, a frame-mounted heavy-gauge steel front bash plate, frame-mounted skid plates, FX4 badging, Dana® AdvanTEK® independent front and solid rear axles, and an electronic-locking rear axle. The package also features Ford’s unique Terrain Management System, which lets you choose between four drive modes – normal, grass/gravel/snow, mud/ruts, and sand. Completing this impressive package is the all-new Trail Control system. This system takes control of acceleration and braking for you as you focus on steering through low-speed and rugged terrain. Put simply, it’s cruise control for off-road adventures.
