Ford Starts Production of 2019 Ranger Pickup
The all-new 2019 Ford Ranger midsize pickup truck is currently in production at Ford’s Michigan assembly plant. To celebrate the rebirth of the Ranger, Ford Motor Company invited 3,000 employees to take a test ride in the new truck at an off-road course custom built in the parking lot of the Michigan plant. The celebration also recognized a rebirth of the assembly plant with $850 million in recent renovations. As a fully re-tooled production facility, the Michigan plant will not only be building the new Ford Ranger but also the upcoming Ford Bronco slated for delivery sometime in 2020.
Ford discontinued the previous model Ranger eight years ago and has been conducting grueling off road and laboratory testing on prototype models over the last two years. The new Ranger is rugged, capable and fully modernized for today’s truck buyer who blends city living with off-road adventure. Powered by a 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine and class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission, this new Ford truck offers performance, efficiency and the capability to go anywhere.
The new Ford Ranger pickup truck offers best-in class payload, towing and torque. It is equipped with driver-assist technologies such as Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking and an available Blind Spot Information System. This smart new truck also has available SYNC® 3 with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capability.
New Ford Ranger trucks are expected to arrive early next year. If you would like to receive updates about this new model and its expected date of delivery please contact our Ford Truck Dealership near Dallas, TX.
