The 2019 Ford Ranchero will most likely arrive next year. Blue Oval’s all-new model is a compact pickup truck with the extremely modern design. According to the latest news, Ranchero will be based on the fourth-generation Ford Focus. The production will start in Mexico and the sales will start firstly in the U.S. and Brazil. Moreover, the 2019 Ranchero will try to replace the Courier model that is Fiesta-based.
The upcoming Ranchero will look very unique, especially the front end that is closer to the regular sedans than the actual pickup truck. The interior will sport amazing features and the comfort will be great. Performance-wise, a single drivetrain unit is in the offer, but with two different configurations.
Sporty Exterior Design
First of all, the 2019 Ford Ranchero will look sporty. This pickup is not about the aggressiveness, so we expect a subtle design with sportier styling cues. Up front, a hexagonal radiator grille is looking brilliant, along with the body-colored bumpers. LED headlights will be optional, and xenon units are available as standard. Fog lights will get the same treatment, along with the taillights at the back. We still don’t know everything about this model, but we know for certain its dimensions.
Ranchero will be 201.5 inches long and 60 inches tall. A compact pickup truck will be a lot smaller than the F-series models. Standard Ranchero models will ride on 16-inch alloy wheels. Upper trims are offering 18 and 19-inch rollers as standard. Most importantly, Ranchero is based on the Ford Focus and its fourth-generation. It means the two will share the same compact platform.
2019 Ford Ranchero Interior Specs
The 2019 Ford Ranchero will arrive in a chassis cab configuration, at least in the first year. It means there will be a place for two or maximum three passengers inside the cabin. The interior will look very modern for a pickup truck. We still don’t know the exact design or controls layout.
On the other hand, some sources are saying the Blue Oval carmaker will deliver a multifunctional steering wheel as standard. The dashboard is still a mystery, and leather upholstery will be optional. Numerous trim levels will be available, so you can equip the interior to the premium level.
Efficient Six-Cylinder Engine
The forthcoming 2019 Ford Ranchero will be a rear-wheel-drive pickup truck. It will offer a single engine choice that will deploy a 6-speed automatic transmission. Single drivetrain option will have to different configurations, standard and optional.
A 4.0-liter six-cylinder unit produces 261 horsepower and 288 lb-ft of torque. The optional setup will use turbocharger and it will generate 362 horses and 393 lb-ft of torque. In the near future, diesel powertrain and the hybrid variant will arrive for sure.
2019 Ford Ranchero Price and Release Date
Ford’s newest pickup truck will most likely arrive in the first half of 2019. The speculated price is ranging from $22,000 to $25,000. Expect the range-topping trim to cost up to $40,000.
