Most of the 2019 Ford Ranger news we’ve reported on lately has been focused on the Raptor version, which hasn’t been officially confirmed for the United States yet. That said, we don’t want to steal any thunder from the standard version of the Ranger, a hotly anticipated pickup meant to reestablish the Blue Oval in the mid-size truck market, and take on the Toyota Tacoma and the Chevy Colorado.
We’ve yet to get our hands on the 2019 Ford Ranger, but our recent tests of the 2018 F-150 XLT and the 2018 F-150 King Ranch proved that the company’s truck game is as strong as ever, so we expect the latest Ranger will be a potent competitor.
This morning, the 2019 Ranger configurator went live, so if you’ve been curious as to what various trims packages will cost you, it’s worth taking a look.
The XL model two-wheel drive model starts at $24,000*, and opting for four-wheel drive will raise the cost of entry to $28,460*. Both come with the same 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine and 10-speed automatic available across the model range, so if you’re looking for a no-frills hauler, these are the two trucks you’ll want to look at.
The XLT trim, which adds the SYNC infotainment system, the Ford Co-Pilot 360 suite of driver aids, fog lamps, and 17-inch aluminum wheels, starts at $27,940 for two-wheel drive, and $31,940 for the four-wheel drive. The range-topping Lariat starts at $32,210* for two-wheel drive and $36,210* for four-wheel drive, and adds options like leather-trimmed seats, push-button start, and LED headlamps. The two upper levels also come with some cool paint options, including Blue Lightning, Saber, and Hot Pepper Red.
Of course, there are plenty of other ways to customize your Ranger, so we’d recommend playing with the configurator, then heading over to see your local AutoNation Ford dealer. Because while it’s fun to click around on a website, there’s no substitute for seeing a vehicle in person.
