The 2020 Ford Ranger is now on our lots and while we have only been introduced to this generation Ford Ranger for one model year so far the success of Ford’s midsize truck took off running. If you are not familiar with this mighty truck in a small package let’s take a look at our official review video.


The 2020 Ranger is a lot of truck just in a smaller package. While some may think why not just get an F-150 there are many positives to owning a Ranger, especially if you are like a lot of truck owners out there who really only need a truck for those few times that you really need a truck. To elaborate the Ranger has a much smaller footprint than the full-size F-150. This means you can get in and out of tight parking spaces and maneuver throughout the congested city or suburban streets much easier. This also goes for the times you are going to take the truck out on tight trails. Sometimes smaller is better. The smaller 2.3L Ecoboost engine in the Ranger also lends itself to better fuel economy with EPA estimated 21 city 26 highway assisted by its 10-speed automatic transmission and the auto start-stop features. This engine is standard across the board on all trim levels. The 2.3L has best in class torque ratings of 310 lb-ft. for a gasoline engine and boasts the best in class 1,860 maximum payload rating and an impressive 7,500 lb. tow rating. Plenty to cover light-duty home ownership and weekend warrior needs.

The Ranger is also quite comfortable even being on a smaller platform. If you have any experience driving mid-size SUVs you will feel right at home in the Ranger. With the Super Crew, you get four full-size doors and enough room in the back seat for children and grandchildren to enjoy a comfortable commute. Average full-size adults will find the back seats comfortable as well with plenty of headroom and legroom depending on where the front seat passenger sits. If you are not in need of the additional passenger space or only have a kid in the backseat once in a blue moon the SuperCab offers in-cab storage over a regular cab truck and you can even do a rear seat delete on this cab if the seats are not needed. The SuperCrew comes with a 5-foot bed and the SuperCab comes with a 6-foot bed. You also get nice amenities such as the SYNC 3 infotainment system that features, voice commands, satellite radio, Apple Car Play, and Android Auto, navigation through Waze, Amazon Alexa compatibility, FordPass connect, a Wi-Fi hotspot good for up to ten devices and many other awesome features. To get the most out of your audio the Lariat offers the B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen with up to 675 watts of amplified power and 10 premium speakers.

The Ranger while great in an urban environment really hits is stride when the pavement ends.
