2019 Ford Ranger fuel economy officially announced

2019 Ford Ranger fuel economy officially announced

https://www.autoblog.com/2018/12/11/2019-ford-ranger-fuel-economy-mileage-ratings/

We got a sneak peak at

2019 Ford Ranger fuel economy

last month when a Monroney window sticker was spotted by a forum user. But now we have the official numbers, including those for four-wheel-drive

Rangers

, which the forum user hadn’t caught. The two-wheel-drive Ranger numbers are the same as in the leak, with 21 mpg in the city, 26 on the highway and 23 in combined driving. The four-wheel-drive models drop to 20 mpg in the city, 24 in highway driving, and 22 combined.

Since the

Ford Ranger

is only available with a 10-speed automatic mated to the turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder with 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, it’s most comparable with

body-on-frame automatic V6 trucks from the competition

. Against these trucks, the Ranger edges them all out: Colorado,

Canyon

,

Tacoma

and

Frontier

. The two-wheel-drive Colorado and Tacoma are roughly tied for next best fuel economy. The Colorado gets 18 mpg in the city, 25 on the highway and 20 combined. The Tacoma gets 19 in the in the city, 24 on the highway and 21 combined. Adding four-wheel-drive reduces the Colorado V6’s fuel economy by 1 mpg in each category. The same happens with the Tacoma’s city and combined fuel economy, while highway mileage drops by 2 mpg.

Also impressive is that the Ranger outperforms the four-cylinder versions of the aforementioned pickups. The two-wheel-drive

Chevy Colorado

is the most efficient four-cylinder offering, and it manages 20 mpg in the city, 26 on the highway, and 22 in combined driving. However, for maximum fuel economy in the small truck segment, you have to go with the

diesel

Colorado, which with two-wheel-drive yields 20 mpg in the city, but an impressive 30 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg combined. Adding four-wheel-drive brings it down to 19 city, 28 highway and 22 combined.
