Earlier this week we were in San Diego, California for the first drive of the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger. Ford’s pickup truck, whom we said goodbye to in 2012, is coming back and you will be able to read all about it very soon.
In the meantime, Ford Canada has unveiled fuel consumption numbers for the pickup that will hit our roads in the next few weeks. The base engine that powers the 2019 Ford Ranger is a 2.3L EcoBoost paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
That being said, the fuel economy is 11.8L/100 km in the city and 9.8L/100 km on the highway for a combined average of 10.9L/100 km.
With 270 hp and 310 lb.-ft. of torque, the 2019 Ranger has a maximum towing capacity of 7,500 pounds, with the right equipment. In its category, only the Chevrolet Colorado, equipped with the 2.8L Turbo Diesel engine, has a greater maximum towing capacity rated at 7,700 pounds.
