Ford has revived their classic Ranger line for 2019. Is the new pickup worthy of the name?
Town & Country gave me the opportunity to drive the new 2019 Ford Ranger for a few days! I decided that this truck was worthy or more than just a standard test drive, so I took it up Methodist Mountain.
A Little History
The name “Ranger” has been used on three distinct lines of vehicles sold by Ford. The name originated in 1958 when the Edsel Ranger was introduced as the base trim level of the Edsel model range. From 1965 to 1981, Ranger denoted various trim packages of the Ford F-Series (and Ford Bronco), serving as a mid- to top-level trim.
Ford discontinued the Ranger line in 2011, but it’s back and better than ever in 2019!
The Test Drive
KC at Town & Country put me in the Lariat edition, and I enjoyed every minute of my test drive.
The Ford Ranger was made to run around the Rocky Mountains. The all-new 2019 Ford Ranger Midsize Pickup Truck features a durable design, outstanding power and fuel efficiency.
The Ranger is built for off-road adventure. From its 4×4 mode, locking rear axle, to its impressive towing capability, this mid-sized truck can handle anything Colorado can throw at it.
