Production Starts for 2019 Ford Ranger

2019 Ford Ranger

The 2019 Ford Ranger is almost ready to make its valiant return to the showroom at Sanderson Ford, and we couldn’t be more excited. Production on the all-new Ford Ranger kicked off in October at the Michigan Assembly Plant, putting the best-in-class-capable pickup truck that much closer to its official release date.

 

“Ford truck fans demanded a midsize pickup that’s ‘Built Ford Tough,’ and we’re delivering with our all-new Ranger that’s specially designed and engineered for American truck customers,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of global operations. “At the same time, we’re revitalizing our Michigan Assembly Plant and securing good-paying jobs for our hourly employees here in the U.S.”

 

The all-new 2019 Ford Ranger is powered by a mighty 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine and a class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission. With this combination, the new Ranger will deliver best-in-class payload, gas towing, and gas torque, surpassing even V6 engine offerings in the midsize pickup segment. With advanced features like Terrain Management System™ and Trail Control™, both offered with the available FX4 Off-Road Package, the Ranger promises to be a real treat for off-road enthusiasts.

 

It’s just a matter of days before the 2019 Ford Ranger makes its glorious debut at Sanderson Ford. Stop into our showroom at the turn of the New Year and learn when you can expect to be among the first on your block with this incredibly fun-to-drive pickup in your driveway.

New Compact Ford Pickup May Be Coming by 2022

Coming Soon

There are lots of people who like the idea of driving a truck but do not need the ability to tow tens of thousands of pounds. While the upcoming midsize Ford Ranger may prove to be a better option for some, a new, even smaller compact Ford pickup may be released by 2022 to appeal to those who want to go even smaller.

According to Automobile magazine, Ford is considering reintroducing a compact unibody pickup to the American market sometime within the next five years. The last time Ford offered a small pickup was the Courier, which ended production in the early 1980s to make way for the Ranger and has been off the international market since 2013.

According to Automobile’s sources, the new truck would be larger than the previous Courier model but smaller than the current Ranger. Because of its small size, its towing and hauling capabilities likely would stay relatively low, but it would prove a versatile option for customers who may want to drive a truck but simply don’t need all that truck.

In speaking with Car and Driver, Ford spokesperson Dawn McKenzie said that Ford will be “significantly expanding our North America lineup with all-new vehicles and entering new segments with fresh designs and white-space silhouettes that will position us for even more growth.” While that’s not a definite yes, it certainly doesn’t sound like a no to us.

To see the new 2019 Ford Ranger, stop into Sanderson Ford’s showroom later this year and make sure you’re one of the first to take it for a test drive.
