1,200 Miles in the 2019 Ford Ranger: What I Learned
The 2019 Ford Ranger may technically be new, but it’s actually based on a platform that’s been around since 2011. Yet it’s still a rock-solid offering that makes up for its lack of soul with sheer competence in every area that matters to mid-size truck buyers.
(Full Disclosure: I asked Ford if I could borrow a new Ranger for a road trip, and also possibly for towing and off-roading, so the company dropped off a snazzy Lariat with the FX4 and Trailer Tow packages. I didn’t end up using the truck for towing or off-roading, but I did drive it over 1,200 miles.)
