The 2019 Ford Ranger is the second overhaul of this popular ute since it’s introduction a few years ago. Keeping the best bits in tact, Ford has overhauled a few main pieces and given drivers more options as they go up the model range to the best selling Ranger XLT.
What we believe to be some of the best reasons why you can’t leave the new 2019 Ford Ranger off your shopping list are outlined below:
More power and an upgraded gearbox
The new Ford Ranger will come with a 2.0L Bi-Turbo Diesel engine pushing out 157Kw of power. Both turbos work sequentially to deliver an impressive 500Nm of torque making towing that caravan or horse float a breeze. This new engine will output more power that the standard 3.2Ltr of previous models and is paired with an all new 10 speed gearbox.
You will also be able to stick with the previous engines as the 2.2 ltr 4 cylinder turbo-diesel (118kW/385Nm) will still be available on all 4×2 models and the standard 3.2Ltr 5 cylinder Turbo-Diesel (157kW/470Nm) is still around for XL 4×4. Both paired with the six speed manual and six speed automatic gearbox.

It also comes standard with adaptive cruise control, slowing and speeding up your Ranger with the traffic flow in front, Semi-Automatic parking and reverse camera.
