2019 Ford Ranger Returns to U.S. As a More Formidable Midsize Marauder

Lately, Ford has been on a roll with balancing innovation with familiarity in its lineup of pickup trucks. There's also been a trend of having to wait at least a year between their debut, and arrival in showrooms. While the returned--and all-new--2019 Ranger pickup fits the bill for both, the fact that it's coming back at all and designed with American shoppers in mind will make that wait worth it.

Unveiled at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit--the same venue where Ford detailed their plans for this truck's return last year--the 2019 Ranger's new form was shown to be more than a fresh-faced upgrade. In fact, where the last variant our New Hampshire shoppers may remember was in the "compact" truck class, the 2019 iteration is classified as a "midsize," slotting it just below the F-150 in size and abilities.

But rest assured, the Ranger of today will still offer larger-than-life capabilities and offer a less-snug parking space fit than a full-size offering. Although its specifications will be announced closer to its on-sale date early next year, we have faith that Ford is taking its time to make its latest model another work-hardened winner.

In addition to familiar interior amenities like the SYNC3 infotainment system with smartphone integration, and F-150-familiar features like an available B&O Play audio system and 4G LTE Wifi, there's one Ford advancement missing. Aside from the tailgate, the Ranger's chassis puts less emphasis on aluminum than its half-ton brethren. Ostensibly, the projected duties of the 2019 Ranger made the need for those weight savings advancements negligible!

We look forward to learning more about the 2019 Ranger, including available powertrains, specs, and capability figures! To get the full scoop on every available detail, the video above from The Fast Lane Truck will more than fill in the blanks.
