Car Reviews 2019 Ford Ranger from a Ford Dealership in Bend: The Perfect Companion for Winter Driving October 12, 2018/ By:Woofan/ No Comments The 2019 Ford Ranger from a Ford dealership in Bend, the latest version of the revered pickup truck, is here! Available again after a long time in North America, the 2019 Ranger is sure to get both long-time fans and new buyers interested with its updated features. And now that winter is fast approaching, it is the perfect vehicle for you to have. Snow’s No Problem Unlike a sedan, a pickup truck like the 2019 Ford Ranger is a better investment because of its tough nature, and its adaptability to different weather conditions and terrains. The 2019 Ranger, in fact, outdoes the older version of the Ranger, as it is now bigger in size and closer to an F-150! There are also other things the 2019 Ranger has improved on from its predecessor. For one, it has large frame-mounted hooks for the steel front bumper. Furthermore, there is a short overhang if you’re driving off-road. Standard cab options are also no longer available; you can now only choose from the SuperCab and 4-door SuperCrew cab configurations. Another huge advantage the Ranger has, compared to SUVs, is that you can place large loads into the vehicle without fear of interference. Remember when you had to sit up straight to avoid being close to your ski boots at the back of your SUV? Well, with the 2019 Ranger’s truck cargo beds –which come in 5 and 6 feet lengths—you need not worry about that anymore! You can load up your snowboards and skis in the Ranger’s bed, and your passengers can unwind in the cabin, hassle free. Want to spend some time in the mountains alone with your family in a trailer? You can count on the Ranger’s best-in-class payload to make that trailer trip possible for you. And with a ground clearance of 9-inches, this pickup can withstand mild snowy conditions. To Performer The 2019 Ford Ranger, unlike its predecessor, only comes in one engine and transmission – the 2.3L Eco-Boost 4 Cyl engine with 10 speed automatic transmission. Nevertheless, it works in its favor, as what’s under the hood is as tough as its exterior, performance-wise. To top it all off, the 2019 Ford Ranger comes with the 4 Wheel Drive option, which is perfect for its adaptability for any terrain and climate. Whether you’re driving through concrete, ice, snow, grass, or mud – you’re in for a smooth ride with the Ranger. Just think about this – once you’ve maxed out the pickup after several ski trips, you can then use it for a summer hike with the kids months later. Now there’s a solid investment, don’t think? r-Ready One key advantage of the 2019 Ranger over the previous model is modern technology. To keep up with the times, the Ranger now has driver assisted technology to make your city or country driving more comfortable than ever. Riding into a snowstorm? Ford has got you covered with features such as automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and Blind Spot reminders that will make your winter driving experience less stressful than ever. Not picking up any radio station? There’s also available infotainment to cheer you up in the harshest of winters. Ford’s Sync 3 system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities can allow you to hook up your Christmas playlist to the Ranger’s sound system. Tough conditions call for tough vehicles. Thankfully, the 2019 Ford Ranger is back just in time for winter, and better than ever to serve you! With nine trims to choose from, there’s certainly one that’s perfect for your adventurous spirit.
