After accidentally publishing (and quickly unpublishing) the configurator for the 2019 Ranger last week, Ford officially launched the truck online today, betraying the Ranger’s pricing and options structure. The 2019 Ranger will start at $25,395 (N9.2M Approx) for a base XL SuperCab 4×2,
It must be acknowledged that it represents a fairly substantial jump in base price compared to some of its competition like the base four-cylinder Chevrolet Colorado.
Admittedly, the Ford’s 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 will no doubt offer more power and torque than most of it’s competitors From the base XL, prices rise just a bit. SuperCab versions of the XLT and Lariat is sold for $29,035 (N10.5M Approx) and $33,305 (N12M Approx), respectively. Adding four-wheel drive requires about $4,000, depending on the model..
To be certain, nearly 40 grand is a significant starting point for a midsize pickup without any added extras. For comparison, a nicely equipped Colorado Z71 crew cab 4×4 starts at $37,195 with a few luxuries like Bose audio, a navigation system, and towing accouterment. While we’ve come to accept midsize trucks as having the same MSRP problems as their fullsize brethren, it’s a bit sad to see Ford not take the opportunity to significantly undercut its primary competitor.
Infotainment system ?
It comes with extra speakers a larger 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system running Ford’s Sync 3.. The XLT also includes Ford’s CoPilot360 safety suite, which adds automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring and lane-keep assist. It also picks up Ford’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot capability.
All possible configurations carry the same powertrain — a 2.3-liter turbocharged I4 gas engine mated to a 10-speed automatic. Nevertheless, the Ranger promises to be a fine truck for active individuals and small families.
