After making its comeback for the 2019 model year, the midsize Ford Ranger has been gaining in popularity. It is an ideal choice for anyone who wants to drive a pickup truck but does not need the capabilities of a full-size truck. The Ranger has a wide range of benefits including versatility, modern technology, and a wide range of features. The 2021 Ford Ranger is available in three trim levels: XL, XLT, and Lariat.
All Ranger models are powered by a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. You can choose between rear- or four-wheel drive. The Ranger boasts a best-in-class towing capacity of 7,500 pounds. It can also handle a maximum payload of 1,430 pounds, when properly equipped.
If you want your Ford Ranger to stand out from other models, you can add a special package with unique exterior details and features. • The STX Special Edition package adds unique 18-inch black wheels, improved interior features, and an 8-inch touch screen. • Another option is the Black Package. This package adds black exterior details like a black-painted grille, high-gloss black-painted 18-inch aluminum wheels, black running boards, a spray-in bed liner, and a black front bash plate, among other things. • The Chrome Appearance Package for the XLT model enhances the look of the truck with chrome bumpers, a chrome exhaust tips, a chrome tow hook, and a smoke chrome Ford logo. • For a more rugged look and improved capabilities, the Tremor Off-Road Package adds a modified off-road suspension, a new skid plate, six upfitter switches, a unique front grille with red details, and front and rear tow hooks. • You can also improve your off-road game with the FX4 Off-Road Package. This comes with monotube shocks, off-road tires, an exposed steel front bash plate, and an electronic-locking rear differential. .
Your Ranger can help you stay connected to the people and things you love with a wide range of technology features. The available SYNC® 3 system with an 8-inch touch screen is easy to use with voice controls. You can also use the system with either Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™. If you want to stay in control of your Ranger even when you are not driving, the FordPass™ app makes it easy. Through the app, you can remotely lock and unlock the doors, start and stop the engine, pay for service using FordPay, schedule your next service appointment, compare fuel prices, and find parking in advance. The Ranger is also compatible with a variety of popular apps through the available SYNC® 3 AppLink®. Some options include Ford+Alexa, where you can control thousands of Alexa skills, and Waze, the popular crowdsourced navigation app.
You can choose between an extended cab, called the SuperCab, or a larger crew cab, SuperCrew, configuration. For the best comfort, the SuperCrew is the choice to make. The SuperCab only has seating for four, while the SuperCrew can fit five. Both cab options come with rear under-seat storage to improve versatility.
There are a variety of features you can choose from to help make the Ford Ranger your ideal truck. Basic available features, like dual-zone automatic climate control and cruise control can help simplify your drive. More premium features like the available leather upholstery and Bang & Olufsen® audio system can give the Ranger an upscale feel.
