PostHeaderIcon Ford Ranger Rambler by RTR

Ford teamed up with RTR to tag-team the
2020 Ranger and has brought two fine examples to the 2019 SEMA show. One of those concepts was the Ranger RTR, and the other is the Ranger RTR Rambler. While the Ranger RTR is already up for sale, will the Rambler prove that it has what it takes to makes its way to the showroom floor? Let’s take a look at what the Ford Ranger Rambler by RTR is all about!

PostHeaderIcon Ford Ranger Driver Goes Full-On Mustang Into a Gas Station – What He Does Next is Mind Blowing

It’s starting to look like it’s not just Mustang drivers that have no common sense. Or, maybe this guy has a Mustang sitting in his backyard – that would certainly explain what we see here. Either way, the guy responsible for this display of utter stupidity goes by the name William Edmonds and, he was probably drunk when he decided to go full-on Ford Mustang into a gas station.

As the story goes, Edmonds decided he wanted to snag himself a beer from the local gas station. This beer, by the way, he pretty much started drinking on the spot. Big surprise, right? Well, after slamming that brewski, he decided to bust a 180 in his Ford Ranger but lost control and shot off into the gas station, taking the stores’ doors and everything else in his path with him. If this isn’t bad enough already, this incredibly smart man proceeds to get out of the truck and rip off his license plate, busting his ass in the process, then leaves the scene and goes home like nothing happened.

Of course, it didn’t take long for authorities to catch up with him since, you know, the license plate isn’t the only thing that links a vehicle to its owner. Fortunately nobody was hurt and he did own up to his bonehead move when the police showed up at his home. He was reportedly charged with reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident. He’ll pay for the whole or deal by submitting to alcohol and drug testing twice per week. Surely, there’s more to the whole punishment side of things, but that’s all that has been reported at the moment. For now, go ahead and enjoy the video and have a good laugh – we certainly did.

PostHeaderIcon Custom Ford Ranger SEMA 2019 Lineup

The SEMA show will bring in a lot of automakers and aftermarket companies this year. The latter benefits more from it as they are overshadowed by big automakers that generally have dedicated entire auto shows solely to them.

This year, Ford has decided to bring in a set of concepts based on the Ranger. The company has teamed up with many players and has come up with trucks catering to different segments. The trucks will be showcased at the 2019 SEMA Show that’s set to kick off on November the 5th.

PostHeaderIcon These Ford Ranger and F-150 Leveling Kits Are Your Ticket to Ride Off-Road

When Mopar said that Jeep Gladiator owners spend on an average roughly $1,000 on accessories for their cars, Ford listened. It also took note that most of those parts comprise of lift kits and rock rails, so it complied.

That’s why today we can tell you more about the lift kits and tuned suspension setups Ford Performance has just introduced for the Ford Ranger and Ford F-150 pickup trucks.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Introduces a Much-Needed Off-Road Package for the Rear-Wheel Drive Ranger

Pickup trucks are no longer used purely as workhorses. Enthusiasts are buying them for the cool-quotient and to do stuff that they can’t with their smaller cars. However, this doesn’t mean that anybody who buys a full-fledged truck uses it to its maximum potential. A couple of decades back, a two-wheel drive truck came with shorter ground clearance and looked like a truck for the namesake, whereas the four-wheel drive trucks were just too bulky. The gap has certainly narrowed down today, but there is still a vacuum here. That is why Ford decided to introduce an off-road package for the two-wheel-drive Ranger called FX2. This seems like a very simple move, but if tapped the right way, it could work wonders for the company.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Ranger VelociRaptor by Hennessey

Hennessey has been ripping up cars and trucks and turning them into something even more monstrous for quite some time now. We recently saw the tuner’s Jeep creation in the form of the Gladiator Maximus with the Hellcat engine and 1,000 horses that came with it. However, Hennessey is best-known for its Ford creations. Remember the 6×6 VelicoRaptor concept? The company already deals with the Raptor, Mustang, F-150, and GT, and will soon be adding the 2020 Bronco as well. But for now, the tuner has decided to expand the Ford portfolio by adding the 2019 Ranger. Although a clever word play back then, it’s clear now that ’VelociRaptor’ is not dedicated solely to the Ford Raptor anymore; perhaps, it refers to the dinosaur. So what if Ford does not want to give us the Ranger Raptor? Hennessey is here to listen to us.

PostHeaderIcon Leaked Images Show Off the 2021 Ford Ranger Long Before Its Scheduled Debut

Wait, what? It’s barely been a year since the fourth-generation Ranger, that marks the nameplate’s return to the North American market, was shown at the Detroit Auto Show and now we get to see the next one? Apparently, this is actually true, and you are looking at a car that you shouldn’t have seen for at least two more years, the fifth-generation Ranger that will share its platform with the upcoming Amarok, both models destined for the European and African markets.

When manufacturers are preparing to launch a new vehicle, they go about their business in a tried and tested way. They either try to take the test mules out on the road either in more secluded areas where there’s less of a likelihood that someone with a camera, hiding in a bush, might be tracking down their movements or, when city testing or highway testing are on order, they wrap the vehicle in question in as odd a camouflage pattern as possible. The point of the camo is to deter those that try to pick out the new model’s key aesthetic features that differentiate it from the older one or, in case of brand-new standalone models, to make it hard for folks to figure out whether or not that model is bringing with it a new design language or not. Basically, most often, it’s a game of hiding your hand in plain sight.

This time, though, it seems like an Australian automotive outlet got its hands on some leaked images. We know that the T6 generation of the Ranger built for international markets (although it did debut in the U.S. as well in 2018) was conceived by Ford Australia and, most probably, the engineers Down Under are now working on the upcoming international model because the T6 has been around since 2011 although it received a facelift in 2015. Obviously, with the T6 Ranger arriving in the U.S. last year and selling well, don’t expect what you see in these pictures to spot rolling down American roads pretty soon.

PostHeaderIcon If You Buy a 2019 Ford Ranger, Your Oil Change Could Be More Expensive

If you’re part of the minority who prefers do-it-yourself solutions for your vehicles, you’ll need to know this one important aspect when it comes to changing the oil on the 2019 Ford Ranger. You’re going to have to remove the left front wheel to do it. It’s not the hardest job in the world — you only need a jack and some muscles to do it — but it is inconvenient, especially when you only need to pop up the hood of your vehicle to gain access to the oil filter. But, apparently, Ford made some changes to the U.S.-spec Ford Ranger, which necessitated this move. You’re not going to find it impossible to change the oil on the new Ranger, but you are going to have to work more than you probably expected to get the job done.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Ranger Storm Concept and Ford Ranger Black Edition

Some gems appeared at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show – the Ford Ranger Storm Concept definitely being one of them. The other one? The Toyota Hilux Gazoo Racing truck. Interestingly enough, neither will be coming to the U.S. Well, the Ranger Storm Concept, if approved for production, will be one of the closest things to a Ranger Raptor without actually being the Raptor. Considering that Ford confirmed that the Ranger Raptor wouldn’t be coming in the U.S., something like the Ranger Storm Concept or the other one that appeared at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show – the Ranger Black Edition could be a wonderful addition to the U.S. range.

Without further ado, let’s see what the Ranger Storm Concept and the Ranger Black Edition are all about.

PostHeaderIcon First Reviews of the 2019 Ford Ranger Are In and You Need to Hear the Truth

The last Ford Ranger to be made in North America came off the production line in late 2011, and it’s taken Ford nearly eight years to bring the model back. But this time it’s not Ford-badged version of a Mazda pickup (the 2006 to 2012 model year Ranger), but a new Ford-designed model with global ambitions.

PostHeaderIcon Americans review the Ford Ranger Raptor they can’t get Stateside

Ford has remained mostly tight-lipped about possible plans to ship the Ranger Raptor over to the North American market. Rumors on the matter ranged from ones certainly stating it was coming, then came another one that it actually wasn’t coming, now it looks like we’re back to a more optimistic outlook.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Ford Bronco and 2019 Ford Ranger Will Be One and the Same Under the Skin

The Bronco is coming back, and we’re still waiting with bated breath for all the juicy details from Ford. Luckily, it’s looking like we won’t have to wait too much longer, as a full debut is expected early next year at the Detroit Auto Show this coming January. However, before then, we’re picking apart all the rumors we can get our hands on, including the possibility Ford will source the Bronco’s underlying structure from the new Ranger.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Ford Ranger Specs Revealed

We have all been waiting for Ford to release the 2019 Ranger’s specs, and finally, the details are here. Cutting straight to the chase, the 2019 Ford Ranger will come with a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder that produces 270 horses and 310 pound-feet of torque. Even though the engine may seem less potent when compared to the Mustang and the Focus RS, the power output is fairly impressive.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Takes the Fun Out of Off-Roading with Trail Control for the 2019 Ford Raptor

Off-roading can be a lot of fun – from exploring the great outdoors, to finding the right line through a challenging bit of terrain, to extracting every ounce of capability from your vehicle, it’s just the right activity to get away from it all. Now, Ford hopes to make it more accessible with its new Trail Control system for the 2019 F-150 Raptor, which the company likens to “cruise control for off-road driving.” Color us skeptical.

PostHeaderIcon Reasons Why You Should Not Be Disappointed By Diesel Ford Ranger Raptor

One thing is for certain. The new Ford Ranger Raptor is cool, capable, and off-road ready right from the production line, and it’s definitely an interesting proposition even for big-truck-loving Americans.

Sizewise, it is a truck similar to the Colorado ZR. “Characterwise,” it is a dune-fighting fun machine designed for the most intense off-roading tasks. While we in the U.S. are still waiting for Ford to confirm that the Ranger Raptor will come, the rest of the world is basking in the greatness of the potent truck. The thing is that the Ranger Raptor for the rest of the world is actually powered by a small diesel engine – not something that’s very popular here, is it?

While I am among those who believe the Ranger Raptor in the U.S. will get a 2.3-liter EcoBoost, I have to tell you a number of reasons why you should not be disappointed even if we end up with the diesel Ranger Raptor.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Ranger Configurator Exposes Pricing of $24,000 to $34,000

Unveiled at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the Ford Ranger is set to return to American dealerships after a very long absence. However, pricing and some important information remained a mystery. Now, the truck’s configurator showed up earlier than expected on Ford’s official website, revealing cab options and specific pricing. I say earlier than expected because Ford has taken the page down shortly after it made headlines.
