Detroit auto show: Ford debuts 2019 Ranger pickup”

During the entire time Ford continued selling the Ranger in markets outside the U.S. Ford announced that a revised version of the pickup, the one being sold overseas, would return to the U.S. lineup of vehicles as the 2019 Ford Ranger.

The new Ranger will start arriving in North American dealerships in early 2019 and be assembled at its Wayne, Michigan, factory in suburban Detroit.

The new Ranger is midsized and has a new grill and hood-line. "We definitely didn't want it to look like a small F-150", he said.

In addition to the suburban Detroit plant that builds Rangers for US sales, Ford produces the truck in Thailand Argentina and South Africa. It is a turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder. The 2019 Ford Ranger will come in either SuperCab or the larger SuperCrew cab. Now, in the metal, we can see the results of this new, midsize truck, and it's shaping up to be something pretty special. "When you pair that with our 10-speed transmission, you've got one of the most versatile, powerful, and efficient powertrains in the segment". The FX4 Off-Road Package provides additional trail capability with off-road-tuned shocks, all-terrain tires, a frame-mounted heavy-gauge steel front bash plate, frame-mounted skid plates and FX4 badging.

As was mentioned, the 2019 Ford Ranger will be powered by a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine and power will be distributed through Dana Trac-Lok differentials, which are available for both rear wheel drive and four-wheel drive. It has a terrain management system that automatically adjusts the transmission and vehicle controls for driving in snow, mud or sand. The FX4 package will come with standard automatic emergency braking. Targeted at the outdoor enthusiast, this new midsize truck displays an athletic look, flawless for off-roading, camping, and cycling.

Inside, the Ranger will offer room for up to five people, their gear, and accessories, while featuring a "center stack" includes an 8-in. touch screen for the available SYNC 3 system.

Lots of modern entertainment and connectivity options will be available, like Ford's SYNC3 system with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Optional features include B&O PLAY premium audio and the FordPass Connect 4G LTE hotspot (which can support up to 10 wireless devices).

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that trucks are a big business here in the United States.
