Ford is bringing the Ranger back! The compact pickup truck left the market in 2011 but is returning as a midsize in 2019. Unlike its big brother the F150, the Ranger will have a body made of steel. It will also have a 10 speed automatic transmission and a turbocharged 4 cylinder engine.

The new Ranger has driver assist features for easier driving and safety. The BLIS, Blind Spot Information System, lets you know another vehicle is in your blind spot. The adaptive cruise control senses when the car in front is slowing down and slows down too, and then speeds back up to your set speed when it's clear. The Lane-Keeping System alerts the driver if the truck begins to drift, then applies steering torque to help return the Ranger to its lane.

A feature entirely new to the Ranger line is the FordPass Connect, which creates a Wi-Fi hotspot in the truck and up to 50 feet away outside it. Up to 10 devices can connect and it will keep track of your data usage for you. See previous columns for information on the FordPass App.

The FX4 off-road version has all-terrain tires, steel skid plates and a steel front bash plate. Also new is the Terrain Management System which has 4 modes to assist with off-road travel.

Available in SuperCab and SuperCrew and 3 models there is seating for 5, an 8 inch center touch screen, and underseat storage in the back.

Come into or call Canby Ford today to see the new 2019 Ford Ranger.
