The 2019 Ford Ranger configurator is now live – which model would you have?

UPDATE 8-7-18: A few hours after Ford published the new Ranger’s configurator, the company removed it. The configurator site is no longer live.

It’s almost that time – the 2019 Ford Ranger is almost here. For those anxiously awaiting Ford’s return to the midsize truck segment, we have some welcome news for you.

We managed to take gander at the configurator for a little while before Ford took it down, as did other outlets like Off-road.com. We were able to copy all the details you’d want to know about the new Ranger, although Ford did already confirm that said details are subject to change. For instance, no Ranger regular cab is expected, and the one found in the configurator is likely a place holder.

However, most of the details are probably legit, so read on for everything you need to know about the new 2019 Ranger.

Pricing starts from $24,000 for a SuperCab 4×2 XL. However, prices can head over $37,000 when you start speccing out a Lariat with all the available options and accessories. There are three trim levels available at launch: XL, XLT and Lariat. The SuperCab and four-door SuperCrew are available with all three trim levels and either two- or four-wheel drive. Four-wheel drive is a $4,000 option on models where it is available. An FX4 Off-Road Package is also available for $1,295.

All Rangers come with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, although Ford still hasn’t announced power or torque figures at time of writing. However, it’s worth noting that the 2.3-liter EcoBoost in the Explorer makes 280 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. In the Mustang, it produces even more: up to 310 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. The 2019 Ford Ranger comes exclusively with Ford’s new 10-speed automatic transmission.

2019 Ford Ranger XL

Base MSRP: $24,300 (4×2 SuperCab)

Available colors (5): Shadow Black, Oxford White, Ingot Silver, Magnetic (Gray), Blue Lightning, Saber (SuperCab, SuperCrew)

The Ford Ranger XL is the entry-level model, and looks fairly spartan in terms of equipment. For your $24,300, you get a SuperCab with two-wheel drive and 16-inch steel wheels. There are cloth bucket seats – although you can choose vinyl as a no-cost option – and an AM/FM stereo with four speakers. Buyers can upgrade to a SuperCrew for $2,520. The 2019 Ford Ranger has a 3.73 axle ratio with an open differential, although you can equip an electronic rear locker for $420.

Equipment Group 101A – a $1,135 option in the XL – ups the speaker count to six, and adds Ford’s SYNC infotainment system functionality. You also get cruise control, a perimeter anti-theft alarm, power sideview mirrors, a day/night adjustable rearview mirror and keyless entry with a locking tailgate. Other optional equipment includes a $225 manual sliding rear window, $365 for a rearview camera and prep kit, $80 for an engine block heater and $95 for a keyless entry keypad.

On both SuperCab and SuperCrew models, buyers can add the $395 Bed Utility Super Value Package. That adds a drop-in bedliner and a 12-volt power socket in the bed. $735 adds Ford Co-Pilot 360 with Auto-High Beam headlights, BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) – which includes trailer blind spot monitoring), and Lane Keep Assist. The STX appearance package costs $995 and adds 17-inch wheels, Carbon Black bumpers, fog lamps and the STX decal. If you’d like chrome instead, $365 gets you the XL Chrome Appearance package. With that package, the 16-inch steel wheels remain. Finally, 5-inch running boards are available as a $635 option.

Base MSRP: $27,940 (4×2 SuperCab)

Available colors: Shadow Black, Oxford White, Ingot Silver, Magnetic (Gray), Blue Lightning, Saber (Orange), Hot Pepper Red ($395 option)

Step up to the XLT, and the base price rises to $27,940 for a 4×2 SuperCab model. Here, you get 17-inch painted aluminum wheels, fog lamps, SYNC connectivity, and Ford Co-Pilot 360 as standard equipment. A SuperCrew model is available as a $2,175 upgrade over the SuperCab. Three different styles of 17-inch wheels are available, or buyers can upgrade to 18-inch wheels for $895. The $495 Trailer Tow Package on the XL is also available on the XLT.

There are two option bundles on the 2019 Ford Ranger XLT. Equipment Group 301A – a $995 option – adds SYNC 3, power-folding mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, and SiriusXM satellite radio. Equipment Group 302A costs $2,800 and adds everything in Equipment Group 301A, plus 8-way power adjustable heated front seats, a manual-sliding rear window, remote start and the Sport Appearance Package.

The Chrome Appearance Package and Sport Appearance Package are available as standalone options for $795 each. $795 adds the Technology Package, which includes Adaptive Cruise Control and navigation. 5-inch black running boards are $635 as standalone options, as are chrome ones. A $495 spray-in bedliner and $420 electronic rear locker are also available on the XLT.

Base MSRP: $36,210 (4×2 SuperCab)

Available colors: Shadow Black, Oxford White, Ingot Silver, Magnetic (Gray), Blue Lightning, Saber (Orange), Hot Pepper Red ($395), White Platinum ($595)

The Lariat trim is the top of the range in the current Ranger stable. It’s also available in SuperCab and SuperCrew configurations. The price starts from $32,210 for a 4×2 SuperCab, or you can upgrade to a SuperCrew for $2,175. Standard fare here includes leather-trimmed bucket seats, push button start and LED headlights. You get 18-inch wheels as standard equipment as well. However, the $895 Sport Appearance Package comes with downsized 17-inch aluminum wheels.

Again, $495 gets you the Trailer Tow Package with a Class IV hitch, and $795 adds Adaptive Cruise Control and navigation. Equipment Group 501A – a $1,795 option – adds a B&O premium audio system with six speakers, the Technology Package, rain-sensing wipers and remote start. The Chrome Appearance Package is $795 on this model, as it is on the XLT. Again, 5-inch running boards are a $635 option, but you can’t get them with the Sport Appearance Package. An electronic locker for the 3.73 rear axle is a $420 option.

The most expensive model currently available is the 2019 Ford Ranger Lariat 4×4 SuperCrew. With all available options, including the $1,295 FX4 Off-Road Package, running boards and the Trailer Tow Package, comes to $45,585 including the $1,095 destination charge.
