The Ford Ranger was first introduced back in the early 1980s. It went through three generations during that first run, which ultimately ended when the truck was discontinued in 2012. What’s popular and in style is constantly in flux regardless of what industry you look at, and automotive is no different. People weren’t buying compact pickup trucks anymore, so many of them began to trickle away. Over the next few years, their popularity returned, and with it came the return of the Ranger as well, in 2019. Now, it’s time for another all-new Ford Ranger, as the fourth generation has come to a close and the 2024 Ford Ranger is the first of the fifth. We’re stoked to be able to provide this all-new, next-generation truck here in Fort Scott, Kansas.
The 2024 Ford Ranger is available with two different powertrain options. The standard option is a 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder option. It’s capable of generating up to 270 horsepower alongside 310 pound-feet of torque and tethered to a 10-speed automatic SelectShift transmission system. Alternatively, if you’re looking for more power, you can opt for the available 2.7L EcoBoost V6 powertrain. While still tethered to the same transmission, it increases power to 315 hp and 400 lb-ft. of torque.
The Ford Ranger is an excellent choice when it comes to shopping for an off-road pickup truck, but it also has plenty to offer when it comes to towing despite being the smallest truck on the lineup. When it comes to towing, the maximum trailering capacity is 7,500 pounds while achieving a maximum payload capacity of 1,805 lbs. Those interested in off-roading will be interested to hear about things like the truck’s increased ground clearance and new features such as the Pro Trailer Backup Assist camera system.
The pickup truck is packed full of great features and technologies, including the aforementioned Pro Trailer Backup Assist. This new system integrated a trailer brake and 360-degree camera system to enhance both off-road driving and backing up while towing. Other great new features include things like extra storage space and locations, available wireless charging, fold-flat rear seatbacks and large digital screens available in different sizes, both for the instrument cluster and display audio screen.
At the time of this page’s creation, the Ford Ranger was still on the way rather than being available. So, just in case you’re reading this early, it’s important to note that the standard Ranger will be available starting in late summer, and it will be followed by the 2.7L V6 model in late fall. Just be sure to check out our online inventory to see what’s available, or give us a call to inquire. We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully getting you into the driver’s seat of an all-new 2024 Ford Ranger!
