The Ford Ranger never went away, it just hasn’t been on the North American market for several years.
Ford is now bringing back this mid-size pickup to Canadian soil and it has become one of the most anticipated vehicles that truck enthusiasts want to see and take for a drive.
The Ranger has been designed and is marketed for those with an adventurous side.

The new Ranger is available in three trim levels – the XL, the XLT, and the Lariat, and comes in two cab styles – the SuperCab and SuperCrew with full-size rear doors.
The SuperCab model has a five-foot truck bed with the SuperCrew allowing even more hauling space with a six-foot bed.
There is an available FX4 off-road package that allow the driver to monitor the pitch and roll of the truck and steering angle of the front wheels. Together with bash and skid plates that protect the undercarriage and all-terrain tires, this package allows driving in places where other vehicles will not travel.
Under the hood there is a 2.3 L, EcoBoost engine with Auto Start-Stop technology that optimizes power using turbocharging and direct gasoline injection. The engine is mated with an innovative 10-speed automatic transmission.
When it comes to technology, the Ranger comes equipped with a variety of available driver assist functions that help you get to your destination with a little extra peace of mind.
