What's New for 2020?

We don't expect major changes for only the second edition of the Ford Ranger since it's rerelease last year, with the exception of the new FX2 edition that will be available for the XL, XLT and Lariat trims that already exist. This special package adds a locking gear differential, an upgraded suspension, special wheels and even larger ones as options and some different off-roading technology to help you when driving off the beaten path around Mountain City, TN and North Wilkesboro.


Performance and Capabilities

The current version of the Ranger drives with a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder, the perfect setup for a truck of this size. We expect the same engine to carry over for 2020, and you'll enjoy the smooth and capable 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque for all your travels, from exciting off-road adventures near West Jefferson, to your relatively light hauling and towing needs in and around Boone, Hickory and Lenoir. A 4x4 system is offered on both of the top two trims, with plenty of off-roading features and equipment added through the FX2 or other available packages.

Safety and Technology

Surprisingly, the fairly sparsely equipped base level of the Ranger comes with standard forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking, the kinds of safety features many midsized pickups don't even offer. For more driver aids like lane keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, you'll want to bump up to a higher trim, which adds additional infotainment and convenience technology, with the top of the line Lariat adding smartphone integration and an 8-inch touchscreen. We'll be sure to let you know of any upgrades we hear about with the 2020 Ranger that will be on its way in the near future.
