Ford has been touting Ranger that will come since the Detroit Auto Show last January. Promising EcoBoost 4-liter four and 10 speed automatic, models and specific trims about mid-sizer from Dearborn have been rare. Until yesterday. Because you peeked behind the Blue Oval curtain, you know that the selection of Ace of Base is now easy.
Let’s work on the assumption that the information we saw yesterday is very accurate. The basic 4 × 2 SuperCab Ranger XL model starts at $ 24,300 before the inevitable $ 1,045 destination costs. For that number of princes, one is treated with a 16-inch silver steel wheel that looks really a Ace of Base business, encased in 255/70/16 blackwall tires. The grille, mirror cover and truck bumper are all black, displaying a rough look in one of the five available colors.
Blue Lightning is displayed here; four other gray colors are pressed. Saber, a new color infused with Vitamin C, can only be chosen if it appears for $ 1,135 Equipment Group 101A. Leave it on the shelf.
Inside the 2019 Ranger base, the owner will find the entry-level stereo equipment that is missing from SYNC but brings the speaker quartet. No roaming control but surely you can manage to consistently press the gas pedal, amirite? Fabric buckets are standard, but masochists can choose vinyl at no cost.
Smart buyers will choose the 2nd Delete Seat Line option, reduce truck prices by $ 240 and significantly increase the credibility of their Ace of Base. It seems 2019 Ford Ranger SuperCab XL base is the only trim where people can put the back seat. Do that and use a new room that can be locked for your equipment.
Going not mentioned is the presence of air conditioning and power windows, although the economies of scale almost guarantee that these two items will be present at all Rangers. If the official price announcement next week shows their absence, then I have to review today’s choice.
The only extra cost option on the Ranger base to consider is the $ 420 electronic locking rear axle. Fortunately, being available as a stand-alone item does not require expensive package selection, the ratio remains fat 3.73 but counteracts the one-wheel stripping gloom.
