BUILT FORD TOUGH® . AND READY FOR ADVENTURE.

Built Ford Tough® isn’t just a slogan. It’s an attitude that runs deep in the history of Ford truck engineering and has produced America’s popular lineup of rugged and dependable Ford pickups. That lineup is even bigger and more formidable with the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger, tested under conditions more extreme than you would ever likely encounter. Go ahead and set a date for your next adventure. Your Ranger is ready!

BUILT FORD TOUGH®

Ford engineers set a grueling test regimen to prepare the new Ford Ranger for the demands of multi-terrain travel. Durability trials on roads so punishing that robots were called in to do the driving. Days of constant shaking in the lab to help identify and reduce squeaks and rattles and to tune suspension parts and body mounts for durability and performance. Towing heavy loads over hours up steep grades at 100 degrees Fahrenheit. And traveling under heart-pounding, bone-jarring off-road conditions. The new Ford Ranger. It’s more than up to the challenge of taking on your toughest test.

BEST-IN-CLASS GAS PAYLOAD AND TOWING

You carry gear — and lots of it. And the new Ford Ranger has these big advantages over other gas-powered midsize pickups: best-in-class maximum 1,860-lb. payload* and 7,500- lb. tow** ratings. Need to haul more? Tow more? Head out to your next adventure in the all-new Ranger.

HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL FRAME AND FRAME-MOUNTED STEEL BUMPERS

The foundation of outstanding off-road capability is strength. That’s why Ford engineers made the backbone of the new Ranger a fully boxed, high-strength steel frame with six crossmembers — plus steel bumpers and tow hooks mounted directly to the frame for ruggedness and durability.
