2019 Ford Ranger will be able to tow up to 7,500 pounds, haul up to 1,860 pounds


The Ranger’s lone engine option will come equipped with a 10-speed transmission.

The revived Ford Ranger’s turbocharged four-cylinder engine will be able to tow and haul more than the V-6 gasoline offerings from its rivals in the midsize pickup segment when it hits dealerships early next year.

The 2019 Ranger’s 2.3-liter EcoBoost can haul up to 1,860 pounds, tow up to 7,500 pounds and generate 270 hp and 310 pound-feet of torque.

The closest competitor, the Chevrolet Colorado, has a towing capacity of 7,000 pounds and a maximum payload of 1,772 pounds with its 3.6-liter V-6. The GMC Canyon can also tow up to 7,000 pounds and haul up to 1,753 pounds.

However, both pickups can tow up to 7,700 pounds with an available 2.8-liter four-cylinder diesel engine.

The segment-leading Toyota Tacoma can tow up to 6,800 pounds and can haul up to 1,620 pounds with its 3.5-liter V-6.

The Ranger’s lone engine option will come equipped with a 10-speed transmission.

“Think of Ranger as the biggest and most capable backpack for your gear,” Rick Bolt, Ford Ranger chief engineer, said in a statement on Friday.
