2019 Ranger Performance
The Ford Ranger is finally back and it's better than ever thanks to many different upgrades under the hood, and all around the vehicle. One of these upgrades is the standard 2.3L EcoBoost® engine that has been designed to power you through anything the road sends your way, while optimizing your fuel efficiency. Auto Start-Stop technology in the engine is capable of automatically turning the engine off when you come to a complete stop while you wait for the light to turn green. As soon as you take your foot off the brake pedal, it will seamlessly turn the engine back on so you can continue your drive.
Because the engineers at Ford know that your adventure sometimes takes you off the beaten path, the 2019 Ranger has been outfitted with numerous off-road technologies to help you stay the course on roads made with things other than pavement. The FX4 Off-Road Package for example includes bash and skid plates that protect the undercarriage of your truck from damage, while the all-terrain tires provide enhanced traction to get you through anything the trail sends your way. The 2019 Ranger also features an available Trail Control ™ system that acts like cruise control while you're off-roading.
2019 Ranger Driver Assist Technology
Available on the 2019 Ranger is a Blind Spot Information System, or BLIS®. This system utilizes sensors located along the sides and on the back of the Ranger to monitor the area around your truck, and even your trailer, to watch out for any vehicles entering your blind spot. When the system does detect another vehicle in an area that you may not be able to see, it will send you an alert by illuminating a light on the appropriate side-view mirror to let you know it's not yet safe to change lanes. While this technology is certainly helpful, it's always recommended that you physically check before changing lanes.
Also available on the 2019 Ranger is a Lane-Keeping System. Much like the Blind Spot Information System, this feature uses sensors to monitor your vehicle's surroundings. This time, the sensors are located in the front of the Ranger, and are able to read the markings on the road to determine your position within your lane. If you should ever start to unintentionally veer out of your lane, the system will automatically send you an alert, and can even provide steering torque to gently guide you back to your correct spot. When you want to change lanes, just use your turn signal and the system will know you're veering on purpose.
