The New 2020 Ford Ranger

Posted on: June 9, 2020

Go off the grid and where there are no roads!

If you’re looking for a mid-size truck with an powerful engine, powerful towing and hauling capability, and tons of impressive tech features, look no further than the Ford Ranger for sale in Austin, TX.

The all-new Ford Ranger is tough enough to get the job done while comfortable enough to serve as an everyday commuter. While Ford took some time off from making this model, the Ranger is back and better than ever. The standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine leads to accomplish hauling needs while still providing outstanding fuel economy.

Ford has a history of building the toughest trucks on the auto industry. The newest Ford Ranger features toughness we’ve come to expect from Ford. Through rigorous tests in conditions and situations, the Ranger proved itself to be a powerful machine. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine combined with the ten-speed SelectShift automatic transmission creates 310lb-ft of torque and 270 horsepower. The EPA-estimated 26 combined mpg makes the Ranger the most fuel-efficient vehicle in its class.

The Ford Ranger is ready to take you anywhere. Built with a high-strength steel frame, an off-road chassis, and a powerful EcoBoost engine, the Ranger was created for the road. If you’re passionate about leaving the concrete for adventure, check out the FX4 Off-Road Package: all-terrain tires, a heavy-duty skid plate, and an Terrain Management System are included in this upgrade. Opt for the four-door SuperCrew cab to seat up to 5.
