2020 Ford Ranger - Winnipeg
The original Ford Ranger was a highly successful mid-sized pickup that was retired back in 2011. However, Ford bowed to popular pressure and re-released the model in 2020, fully updated and upgraded to bring the nameplate up to date. We have the latest 2020 version available now at our Winnipeg location, and here are the highlights you can expect to see.
What's New - 2020 Ford Ranger
The base Ranger configuration is unchanged from the previous year. However, a new 'Tremor' off-road package has been added as an option, providing increased ground clearance, upgraded suspension, locking rear differential, and more.
Ranger Design and Cab Format
The Ranger's take on the pickup design is a little more rounded than most, from the backward-curving headlights to the prominent wheel arches. However, it's not a design that strays too far from the norm, giving an overall feel of a confident, powerful truck.
The 2020 Ford Ranger is available in two main cab formats. A SuperCab option gives two-door access to the cabin and a pair of jump seats in the rear, while a SuperCrew version switches the rear seating to a three-person bench and ups the door tally to four.
Powertrain and Performance
All versions of the Ranger are equipped with the same powerful engine, a 2.3L turbo I-4 making 270 horsepower and 310lb-ft of torque. The output is passed through a ten-speed automatic transmission to an all-wheel-drive on every model.
This configuration provides plenty of power for smooth and responsive daily driving and is equally at home on the highway pavement or tough backwoods terrain. What's more, the powertrain delivers a highly respectable payload capacity of 750kg, plus a towing capability of 3,409kg. If you need a truck that knows how to work hard, the 2020 Ford Ranger delivers.
Modern Infotainment and Technology
The entry-level Ranger XL trim is a straightforward working truck with little advanced tech in the cabin. However, higher trim levels add an 8" touchscreen for infotainment, giving easy access to advanced features including:
- Smartphone integration through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
- Bluetooth streaming.
- A Wi-Fi hotspot facility.
- In-built advanced navigation system.
- AM/FM radio and MP3 playback.
Advanced Active Safety Systems
As a modern take on the traditional truck design, the new Ford Ranger comes packed with advanced active safety and driver-assist features. Key highlights to look out for include:
- Forward-collision warnings with pedestrian detection.
- Automatic forward emergency braking.
- Lane departure warnings.
- Lane-keeping assist.
- Rear cross-traffic alerts.
- Automatic traction control and electronic stability control.
- Rear parking assistance and digital backup camera.
And of course, the cabin is equipped with a full set of front, side, and head-level airbags for the driver and all passengers.
