Overview

What's New

The 2020 Ford Ranger continues with minor equipment adjustments and updated colors. The only change of note is the new FX2 Package, which brings off-road capability to rear-wheel-drive versions of the midsize pickup. The current Ranger debuted in the U.S. market last year.

Choosing Your Ford Ranger

The Ranger comes in three trim levels: XL, XLT, and Lariat. Pricing starts at $26,250 including destination for the base XL and goes to $34,340 for the Lariat.

Engine Choices

Every Ranger comes with Ford's 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, which produces 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission does the shifting. Rear-wheel drive is standard, while four-wheel drive is available for $4,160 on the XL and $4,000 on the XLT and Lariat.

With RWD, the Ranger is EPA-rated at 21 miles per gallon city, 26 mpg highway, and 23 combined. Ratings ease to 20/24/22 mpg (city/highway/combined) with 4WD.

Properly equipped, the Ranger can tow up to 7,500 pounds.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The standard SuperCab offers seating for four and a 6-foot bed, which can hold 51.8 cubic feet of cargo. The rear seat can be deleted from XL models at a credit of $240.

The SuperCrew seats five thanks to its full-width rear seat and comes with a 5-foot bed that features 43.3 cubic feet of cargo space. It costs $2,400 on the XL and $2,175 on the XLT and Lariat to upgrade to the SuperCrew.

Safety Features

Automatic emergency breaking is standard throughout the lineup. Most other driver assistance features are bundled in Ford Co-Pilot360 suite, including lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The bundle is standard on the XLT and Lariat and requires $625 with the XL.

Adaptive cruise control and front parking sensors are available on the XLT as part of the $995 Technology Package. The parking sensors are standard on the Lariat, and adaptive cruise control is available in a Technology Package costing $895.

Connectivity

The XL starts out with a four-speaker AM/FM sound system, a USB port, three power points, and a built-in wi-fi hot spot. The 101A Package ($1,135) includes six speakers and Ford's Sync infotainment voice command system.

The XLT and Lariat get SiriusXM radio and Ford's Sync 3 infotainment interface, featuring an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Compatibility. Navigation is included in the optional Technology Package for each trim.

Exclusive to the Lariat is a 10-speaker Bang and Olufsen sound system, which comes with navigation and other tech upgrades in the 501A Package, priced at $2,005.

XL - From $26,250

The XL comes with cloth seats, air conditioning, power windows and locks, black exterior trim, and 16-inch steel wheels.

In addition to Sync and two more speakers, the 101A Package ($1,135) brings in cruise control, power side mirrors, a power tailgate lock, and keyless entry. With the 101A Package in place, buyers can add the STX Appearance Package ($995), which spruces up the XL with 17-inch silver aluminum wheels, fog lights, and upgraded cloth upholstery.

The available FX4 Off-Road Package for 4x4 models ($1,295) adds all-terrain tires and shocks, a locking rear differential, underbody skid plates, and an off-road driver information screen. The FX2 Package ($595) adds the same features to 4x2 models.

XLT - From $30,300

The XLT gets the 101A and STX equipment, plus dual-zone automatic climate control, body-color exterior trim, and a household-style power outlet. Ford Co-Pilot360 and Sync 3 are also standard.

The 301A Package ($1,670) tacks on power-folding mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, and dark-colored wheels and body trim. The 302A Package ($2,450) has all that plus heated power front seats, remote start, and a sliding rear window.

With either package selected, buyers can get a Technology Package ($995) with adaptive cruise control, navigation, and front parking sensors.

Lariat - From $34,340

The Lariat distinguishes itself with leather seats, full LED exterior lighting, push-button start, and 18-inch machined aluminum wheels.

The Technology Package for the Lariat provides adaptive cruise control and navigation for $895. Those features are also available the 501 Package ($2,005), along with the Bang and Olufsen sound system, remote start, and automatic wipers.

CarsDirect Tip

Since the 2020 Ford Ranger is more for pleasure than work, the XLT should appeal to all but the most cost-conscious buyers. Upgrading to the Lariat is only necessary if you can't live without leather seats.

Lots of hype, but it fell flat. The Ford Ranger returned to the American market in 2019, following a resurgence in the small-truck space. Despite being one of the most recent and most anticipated arrivals in the U.S. midsize truck segment, the current Ranger is actually fairly old in the global market, and this age showed once it hit showrooms with a thud.

While it has loads of spunk under its hood, its age shows in its unrefined chassis, limited standard features, and relatively cheap-feeling cabin. But does all this really matter in a pickup truck? See how the 2020 Ford Ranger stacks up to the competition below to find out.

Standard turbo four-cylinder engine delivers loads of pop. The Ford Ranger continues with its standard 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Not only is this plenty of power for a midsize pickup, its peak torque comes low in the powerband, giving it the grunt it needs to get whatever a loaded trailer moving.

Speaking of towing, this engine and the Ranger’s touch chassis combine for a respectable 7,500-pound towing capacity. This doesn’t lead the class, but it’s the same across the entire lineup, making it convenient to find a Ranger that fits your towing needs.

In other midsize pickups, buyers must wade through endless specs to find a combination that meets their towing requirements. For example, the Chevrolet Colorado’s towing capacity ranges from a paltry 3,500 pounds with the base engine to a class-leading 7,700 pounds with the diesel engine.

While this consistency is nice, having just one engine option vastly limits the ability to customize the Ranger to fit various buyers’ needs. They get just one engine and one transmission option. The only changes they can make to the powertrain is whether they want two- or four-wheel drive.


Ford Ranger

Nicely equipped XLT, but workers are left out. Most retail shoppers will land on the midrange XLT trim, and it offers loads of tech and features these shoppers will love. The list includes a standard 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, two USB ports, dual-zone automatic climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels, and more.

The base XL trim is mostly for fleets, and it largely ignores the wants of the workers who use these pickups, as it comes with a 4.2-inch LCD screen, one USB port, steel wheels, and no smartphone integration.

Companies that like to offer their workers some creature comforts may prefer the GMC Canyon or the Colorado, as they come standard with a 7-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay.

Rugged undercarriage takes a beating, but it gives one too. The Ranger is built like a downsized Ford F-150 with its ladder frame, independent front suspension, and solid-axle rear end. This gives it the travel it needs for moderate off-roading and the strength it needs to handle up to 1,860 pounds of payload.

The Colorado offers just 1,528 pounds of payload capacity, and the Honda Ridgeline checks in with just a 1,580-pound payload capacity.

Buyers seeking a better ride will find a small upgrade in the Colorado. Those who want a truly commuter-friendly ride will find this in the Ridgeline, which boasts a multi-link rear suspension. This delivers an SUV-like ride, which gives daily commuters much-needed relief for their backsides.

Final thoughts. The 2020 Ford Ranger is a great option for buyers who are tired of spending countless hours digging through trim levels and configurations to find the truck that suits their needs. Across the board, it delivers ample power, great towing, and superior payload capacity – you just need to pick the features you prefer.

Buyers who plan to use their truck mostly as a commuter vehicle and will only put it through light hauling duties are better off with the Honda Ridgeline’s SUV-based chassis.

Fleet shoppers who want to pamper their workers a bit with modern tech will appreciate the standard smartphone integration in the GM twins, the Colorado and Canyon.

Buyers who plan to do heavier hauling and need all the low-end grunt they can get will find this in the optional 2.8-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder engine the Canyon and Colorado share. With this engine, which cranks out 369 lb-ft of torque, these pickups can tow up to 7,700 pounds. Plus, at an EPA-estimated 30 miles per gallon highway, the diesel-equipped Canyon and Colorado beat the Ranger by at least six mpg highway.
