2019 Ford Ranger performance capabilities and specs

History has a way of coming full circle in many situations, and this extends even to the vehicles that are produced for drivers across the North American continent. Ford has recently unveiled plans to revive the iconic Bronco SUV, and in a pleasing twist of fates, the Ranger has been given new life as well! We can’t wait to see this industry-favourite mid-size pickup in action, but beforehand, our Sherwood Ford team will be taking you through the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger performance capabilities and specs!

Engine performance and drivetrain features of the 2019 Ford Ranger

Like the rest of the Ford lineup, the 2019 Ranger has been built to supply you with all the adrenaline, performance and precision that you desire. Under the twin-power dome hood, it houses a 2.3-litre EcoBoost® engine designed for efficiency and capability, thanks to direct fuel injection, a twin-scroll turbocharger and 16-valve design,  it’s capable of producing up to 270 horsepower and a class-leading 310 pound-feet of torque. That’s more than any other mid-size pickup on the Canadian market!
