Maybe 2020 Ford Ranger could not compete with stronger and larger trucks in the class, but it sure could be considered as cute and attractive small pick-up truck for a wide range of usage. This time it comes as slightly changed, with a new engine under the hood.
- There is a hybrid engine with acceptable strength.
- The price is average for the class.
- The model is not much large as other models in the class.
- There is a weaker engine under the hood.
We are used on larger pick-up trucks nowadays, so 2020 Ford Ranger should not compete in that field at all. However, it has numerous features that could support the model in the class. There is a slightly changed front end with large lights and mesh wide grille. The rear end is shorter, with a curved rear end and trunk door, while the rear window comes as redesigned from the last year. The model is not changed in size, so even at the first glance, the model looks shorter than we used to see in this class.
It is not easy to say something about the cabin in 2020 Ford Ranger. It is for sure that the model is as elegant as comfortable as before. However, the most appealing is great equipment that comes along with the elegance. Such things like SYNC3 infotainment system and 8-inch touchscreen come as a standard. On the other hand, there is a Wi-Fi connection and Apple Car and the Android Play store, too.
The main novelty when it comes to the new 2020 Ford Ranger is surely a hybrid engine that should be found under the hood. That engine represents a combination of the 2.3-liter petrol engine and an electric motor, while that combination should produce at least 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. The standard petrol model includes a 2.3-liter engine and 230 horsepower of strength. There is a diesel engine in the offer, too. It is a strong 3.2-liter turbodiesel with 280 horsepower of strength. However, when it comes to the strength, it is not even close to strong diesel engines in the class. Do not forget that Toyota Tacoma has a strong 5.0-liter unit, and Toyota Tundra drives on a 2.7-liter petrol engine. Speaking about the petrol engine, the Chevrolet Silverado runs on 6.2-liter V6 which is the strongest in the class.
2020 Ford Ranger Release Date and Price
You should be prepared for the 2020 Ford Ranger to be released before the fall of 2019. The price range starts at $25,000 which is the amount of money that you should prepare for a standard model with a petrol engine. However, with many different engines that you could have, like diesel or a hybrid one, the price increases. So, higher trims should cost $40,000, if you choose full equipment. Lastly, there is a hybrid version of the model with the favorable price of $30,000.
