A Well-Polished Design, That’s Meant to Get Dirty
Looking for a rough and rugged truck that’s as adept on paved roads as it is off? A truck that will take you from the jobsite to the campsite, and over any terrain in-between? Well, the Ford Ranger is that truck, and it’s ready to take on anything in its path. Learn more about this brawny beast of a truck with the crew at Bickley Ford, your Huntsville home for all things Ford.
A truck capable of such bold performance requires a bold look to match, and the 2020 Ford Ranger doesn’t disappoint. A muscular exterior blends function with form, its twin power dome hood and low-angled windshield offering both aerodynamics and aesthetic appeal. A wide grille and high, rounded wheel arches add to the Ranger’s capability while providing masculine accents. Finally, the Ranger’s high approach and departure angles make sharp inclines and large objects no obstacle—stopping points and stumbling blocks for most become simple speed bumps to the 2020 Ford Ranger.
Of course, the interior of the Ranger provides an equal blend of beautiful yet utilitarian functionality. Starting with the incredibly comfortable bucket seats up front and moving to the smartly-crafted Centre Flow-Through Console, allowing immediate access to the Ranger’s many storage options. In the centre of the dash, you’ll find an 8” centre touchscreen that’s home to your Ranger’s connectivity features, including the available SYNC®3 infotainment system, SYNC®3 AppLink, and FordPass™ Connect with Wi-Fi hotspot. While the 2020 Ranger is meant to conquer anything nature throws at it, it’s advanced enough to handle the concrete jungle, too.
Potent Performance, On Road & Off
Equipped with a 2.3-litre EcoBoost® engine providing 270 horses, the 2020 Ford Ranger races out the gates with the vigour of a sports car—only it’s best in class torque rating of 310 lb.-ft reminds you that the Ranger is, in fact, one tough truck. The EcoBoost® engine’s twin-scroll turbocharger utilizes alternating cylinders, extracting exhaust, maximizing energy, and all but eliminating lag for an equally powerful and efficient engine.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that it’s matched to Ford’s 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission, with optimized gear progressions and three overdrive gears; so whether you’re climbing off-road hills or towing on the highway, you’re guaranteed efficient performance. Speaking of towing, you didn’t imagine Ford would let all that torque go to waste, did you? A 1,650 lbs. payload capacity means you’ve got plenty of pickup to handle all your tools and gear, while a towing capacity of up to 7,500 lbs means this truck can easily haul all your toys.
Built Ford Tough—And Then Some
With all that power, towing capacity, and overall capability, there’s sure to be some long and hard roads ahead for your 2020 Ford Ranger—and that’s okay. This may be the toughest truck Ford has ever produced, starting with a high-strength, fully-boxed steel frame featuring six crossmembers, as well as frame-mounted steel bumpers and tow hooks, the Ranger is built to last. Double A-arm independent suspension in the front of the Ranger provides control on the toughest of roads, while a two-stage, nitrogen-pressurized parabolic leaf spring suspension in the back results in long-term reliability in any conditions.
This isn’t just speculation, either; the engineers at Ford created an exhaustive, back-breaking testing regimen that sent lesser trucks to the scrap yard. Roads so tough, they needed robots to drive the Ranger. Days in the lab, being shaken night and day, to ensure the suspension and parts were able to handle whatever kind of hell you decided to put your truck through. And speaking of hell, how about the hours of towing heavy loads up steep hills in 37.8 degree Celsius heat the Ranger was subjected to? If you think you can put a truck that passes all those tests through more, Ford can’t wait to see you try. All of that performance and capability mentioned above only scratches at the surface of what the 2020 Ford Ranger offers. From a powerful and efficient engine to some of Ford’s most advanced performance and connectivity technologies, all wrapped up inside the toughest truck on the market, the 2020 Ford Ranger is ready for whatever jobs you may put it through.
