2019 Ford Ranger EPA-Rated up to 21/26/23 MPG

2019 Ford Ranger EPA-Rated up to 21/26/23 MPG

https://www.motortrend.com/news/2019-ford-ranger-epa-rated-212623-mpg/

Official EPA numbers for the 2019 Ford Ranger were released today. The midsize truck is rated 21/26/23 mpg city/highway/combined when paired with rear-wheel drive.

That rating makes the Ranger the most fuel-efficient gas-powered midsize pickup in the U.S. In comparison, the 2019 Toyota Tacoma tops out at 20/23/21 mpg with the four-cylinder or 19/24/21 with the V-6. The 2019 Chevrolet Colorado maxes out at 20/26/22 with the four-cylinder gas engine. The diesel Colorado is naturally better on the highway than the Ranger but has the same combined rating, hitting 20/30/23 mpg. Meanwhile, the 2019 Honda Ridgeline puts out a respectable 19/26/22 mpg. With the 2019 Nissan Frontier, you’re looking at a max rating of 19/23/21 mpg. Of course, we’ll have to conduct our own Real MPG tests to confirm the Ranger’s EPA numbers translate to the real world.

With four-wheel drive, the Ranger’s fuel economy drops slightly to 20/24/22 mpg, according to the EPA. The Ranger comes with a standard 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine that makes 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. While it doesn’t have the most horsepower, it has more torque than any other gas engine in the midsize truck segment. The engine pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission; no manual option will be available.

Ford began production on the new Ranger in Michigan this October. The model heads to dealerships in January with a starting price of $25,395. Right on its heels is the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, which is expected to hit the market during the second quarter of 2019.
