Here’s How Much Power the 2019 Ford Ranger is Packing

There’s been no shortage of information about the 2019 Ford Ranger. But now, we have the numbers we’ve been waiting for — and they sound promising. The 2.3-liter four-cylinder under the hood of Ford’s new mid-size pickup will have 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers translate to a payload capacity of 1,860 pounds, and provided buyers opt for the towing package, a 7500-pound towing capacity. A ten-speed automatic is the only transmission.

Four Silverado Concepts Chevy is Bringing to SEMA 2018: Gallery

It’s that time of year — SEMA 2018 is just around the corner. And to warm up for the crazy display of vehicular mayhem, Chevy has released shots of four Silverado concept trucks it’ll be bringing to the show.

Patent Filing Suggests Mid-Engine Corvette Could Get Manual

While there’s been no confirmation from the General, at this point, we know that a mid-engine Corvette is coming. And while we still have more questions than answers about the long-awaited American supercar, there’s been plenty of credible information about what it’ll be called, what the powertrain options will be, and where it will debut. For the record? We don’t think it’ll kill the traditional front-engine model, as some have feared. But one question we’ve had — because we’re unapologetic fans of a third pedal — is whether or not…
