The exciting 2023 Ford Ranger offers customers a compelling midsize pickup truck that combines style and performance with affordability. We know there are several quality midsize pickups on the market to choose from, but we believe the 2023 Ford Ranger can outdo them all. Ford has put in over a century of effort in continuously innovating the automobile industry, so when you step into a Ford, you're not just stepping into a normal vehicle—you're stepping into a vehicle that represents a history of excellence.
The Ford Ranger offers customers a high towing capacity, available four-wheel drive, and can be adapted with Ford's Tremor package if you want to put in some serious miles off-roading. The Ranger was brought back to our lineup in 2019, but the name has been attached to pickups since the 1980s. A look at its legacy shows a history of quality pickups that not only got the job done but let drivers look stylish while doing so. We want you to get into one of our Ford Rangers so you can see how effective, cool, and safe this new model is. We're positive you're going to go away knowing you bought the best the market has to offer. Let us guide you through the specifics of the 2023 Ford Ranger, and you'll soon see just why it's become a favorite of ours.
Performance matters in all vehicles, but it matters even more in pickups. No one buys a pickup just for getting around. You buy a pickup because you have traveling to do and hard work awaits, so you want certainty that your pickup will have your back. Rest assured that the 2023 Ford Ranger will. You won't have to be concerned about getting the job done when you have one of these in your driveway. Its performance is exceptional, and its ride feels smooth.
The 2023 Ford Ranger arrives with a turbocharged 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder engine producing 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque; these metrics mean that, when you take off, there's no awkward jerk and no rough ride. Your pickup will glide, affording a smooth sensation as you're sailing down the highway—but even better is that the ride stays smooth if you're in the wilderness. An engine like this lets you traverse rough terrain without feeling it in the saddle. Cutting down on the turbulence means your offroad life can be a lot more enjoyable for you and your passengers.
If you're interested in going offroading on a regular basis, you may want to consider the Tremor Off-Road Package. This gives your Ranger even more of an upgrade so that you can handle any terrain. The Terrain Management System that comes with this package lets you alter the pickup depending on the geography you aim to tackle. It can be adapted to conditions ranging from mud to snow to sand so that you feel comfortable traveling where you please.
Pickups have gained a reputation for guzzling gas, but the Ranger puts down a solid EPA-estimated fuel economy, rated for 21 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway in the rear-wheel drive configuration. (The all-wheel drive configuration grants an EPA-estimated 20 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway.) This means you won't have to break the bank as much as you would with other pickups whose fuel efficiency ratings are a bit lower. Longterm, this can save you some serious bucks.
For those of you who plan to use your truck for labor or long trips that require trailers, you rightfully want to know that your midsize can handle some serious weight. Luckily, the Ranger can. This truck can tow up to 7,500 lbs, so you don't have to make too many trips back and forth to get your job done. This gives you a time and money advantage. If a vacation is on your mind, now you won't have to decide what to leave behind and what you'll have to purchase when you arrive at your destination; since you can bring all you need, expenses on your trip will be lower, and peace of mind will be higher. The payload weight is also worth noting, topping out at 1,905 lbs. You'll be able to transport whatever you need when you own a Ranger.
As much as you want great performance, you'll spend most of your time inside the cabin, so you'll want an interior that feels cool and welcoming. Long gone are those cramped cabs with a meager bench seat; you can now opt for a SuperCrew cab, which gives you enough space for five passengers. There's also the SuperCab option, which comes with under-seat storage so that you can maximize your pickup's functional interior space. The SuperCab also comes with a six-foot bed; we know you want your pickup to be able to handle all your equipment and supplies, and we know the Ranger will meet those expectations. You won't have to sacrifice comfort for storage, however, as the Ranger is comfortably arranged and not known for boxing in its occupants.
The cabin is designed to afford you the best view—not just for sightlines while driving but for enjoying the vistas of America as you trek across the country. The Ranger's easy-to-manage 3.5-inch infotainment system adds an extra level of enjoyment to your travels; depending upon what upgrade you go with, you can have access to SiriusXM radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Optional tech upgrades include a 4.5-inch or even an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, as well as SYNC 3 connectivity for operating your infotainment system through voice commands. Your 2.3-inch productivity screen, beside the instrument cluster, can also be upgraded to a 4.2-inch color display.
Your Ranger will be ready to merge with your tech to make your ride as enjoyable as possible. For convenience, you can charge ten different devices simultaneously, along with a Wi-Fi hotspot and an available 110-volt power outlet, so your squad will be ready to go wherever you end up.
With a pickup like this, you want to know you are in full command of not only your truck but your surroundings—and that's where the Ford Co-Pilot360 system comes in. This driver assistance suite is renowned for its ability to give you the sense of having an extra pair of eyes. The Ranger's Blind Spot Information System gives you an incredible sense of what's happening around your pickup when you are trailering something that might block your view if you glance into the rearview mirror. This neat system senses when anything is passing behind your trailer so that even if it's in your visual blind spot, the truck will alert you to it.
The Ranger also has a rearview camera that immediately activates when you enter into reverse, giving you a view of everything behind your truck. This view also gives you some lower coverage, and the system will activate if it senses an obstacle behind you. The Ranger also comes with two particularly helpful assistance systems—the first being the Lane-Keeping System, which lets you know when your truck is veering out of its lane and can help nudge you back where you ought to be.
The other system of note is the Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Detection, which provides multiple alerts when a forward collision with another automobile or a pedestrian appears imminent. If you want, you can also keep active a system that will begin the braking process for you when it senses this incoming collision. Your truck will begin to brake before your foot even reaches the brake pedal, giving you an enormous technical advantage instead of just relying on your reflexes.
Driver assistance features are supplemental and do not replace the driver's attention, judgment, and need to control the vehicle. Safety features do not replace safe driving practices—they enhance them, and they can afford their driver an extra sense of security.
