New Ford Ranger Tows 20 Trailers For A Total Of 44,092 lbs

Ford has just released a promotional video for a campaign that features the facelifted Euro-spec Ranger.

In it, the automaker simply states that the 2019 Ford Ranger can “tow whatever the hell you want.”

We’d have to agree with Ford’s statement. The 1:15-minute long videos depict a new Ford Ranger towing no fewer than 20 trailers, including a sexy (yes, trailers can be sexy) 50s Airstream and various other themed caravans, as they put it.

The length of the convoy exceeds 100 meters or 328 feet and tips the scale at a total of 20 tones or 44,092 lbs.

The caveat is that the new Ford Ranger in the video is powered by the 2.0-liter EcoBlue twin-turbo diesel, and engine not expected to make its way to our North American Ford Ranger. It produces 210-horsepower and 369 lb.-ft. of torque – not bad for a wee 4-cylinder mill. Although not specified, the transmission is possibly the new 10-speed automatic.

The video is cute but ultimately you, as an owner, should not reproduce this test – if you break your Ranger doing something like this will void your warranty.

The Ranger Can Still Tow Even Without the Diesel

The good news is that our Ford Ranger is no slouch when it comes to towing. It’s 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder delivers 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque which allows it to tow up to 7,500 pounds. The Ranger can tow with the best of them in this segment, and more than any other V6-powered mid-size pickup.

In other words, you may not be able to tow 20 trailers, but you can certainly tow a boat with it as we noted in our 2019 Ford Ranger review. For many owners, that should be good enough.
