2019 Ford Ranger

It’s always good when a new truck gets released that has the potential to be a good platform for an overland vehicle. That’s why it’s exciting to hear about the forthcoming 2019 Ford Ranger. The Ranger hasn’t been sold in the U.S. for some time, but it has been sold in other markets. Now it’s back in the U.S. with features that should put it in the running against the Toyota Tacoma and Chevy ZR2 for anyone looking for a midsize truck to use for overlanding. Of course you’ll want to opt for the F4X off-road package, which includes bash and skid plates, all-terrain tires, and a status screen that lets you monitor the pitch and roll of the truck and steering angle of the front tires. This package also comes with Trail Control, Ford’s version of off-road cruise control, Terrain Management System, which adjusts the mapping of the throttle and transmission based on the terrain, and even an electronic locking rear differential.
