Used Chevy Colorado Trucks For Sale – To find out more about how Ford Motor Co. planning to sell a new Ranger medium pickup as an “adventure” truck designed for rude outsiders, we only need to look at a specially made off-road test course made by car makers in the hills. outside of San Diego.
Engineers spend weeks moving tons of land to create obstacles, mud baths, hills, messy roads, and whatever Ranger owners might encounter on their way to their favorite camping spots or windsurfing or kayaking beaches. (I agree not to disclose how the Ranger works in this course; the information is embargoed until December 18 – but let’s say Ford will never build a testing facility – let alone invite reporters to test it – unless the automaker believes that the new Model will look impressive.)

One month before Ranger’s debut, carmakers’ engineers and executives said dealers were very enthusiastic about the prospect, given the online interest wave and the steady flow of visitors to register interest in Ford shops. Time will talk. As long as the Ranger’s sales are strong – with some Series F buyers switching to smaller vehicles – trucks have considerable potential.
The 2.3-liter Ecoboost four-cylinder (read: turbo-loaded) is rated 270 horsepower and 310-foot torque, which beats the power and torque ratings of the entry-level Toyota Tacoma and the Chevrolet Colorado, the Ranger’s most important competitors. Tacoma and Colorado also offer more powerful engines. Ranger gets the same 10-speed transmission – with two-wheel drive or 4X4 – used by larger Ford F Series pickups.
Ford executives said they decided to offer one engine for all versions and trim levels that resulted in a combination of power and fuel efficiency, ranked 21 roads / 26 highways and 23 mpg combined. Options for off-road performance include the electronic rear locking differential and the Medan Management System, which provide fingertip speed control when navigating rough terrain.
Because customers for medium pickup often draw sailboats, horse trailers, dirt bikes and other outdoor pleasure machines, Ranger offers a towing capacity of 7,500 lbs. and payload 1,860 lbs. – which Ford claims is best in its class.
If you are the type of owner who uses pickup truck accessories, Ford wants to help. For the first time, Ranger buyers can order more than one hundred market items such as Yakima roof racks to transport bicycles. The rack price will be added to the Ranger price, installed by the dealer and included in the overall financing for the vehicle.
“We think customers will wear their Rangers in a way that is consistent with their lifestyle,” said Brian Bell, Ford’s marketing manager.
Ranger serves as a very convenient private transportation for those who don’t dream of spending weekends anywhere that doesn’t have room service. The Supercab version with a six-foot box that has the second row does not look very useful, except for packages or small children. SuperCrew with a five-foot box, spacious enough for five seats.
Importantly, Ranger offers a variety of safety features – depending on the version and trim level – including automatic emergency braking, line assist, blind-spot warning (for towing as well), adaptive roaming control, automatic high beam, and more.
Ford was several years late at a middle class pickup truck party. From the appearance alone, the Ranger must elbow the entrance. Disputes will only become more alive in a year or more when the Ford Bronco compact SUV reappears, a vehicle planned to be built by Ford right next to the Ranger.
