Ultimate Performance: The 2020 Ford Ranger

Nobody handles tough jobs like Ford, and while the full-size F-150 dominates its class, the maker has recently reintroduced a fearsome contender in the compact pickup arena. Following its return just one year prior, the 2020 Ford Ranger offers well-rounded capability for all your towing, hauling, and off-roading needs.

All the Power You Need

The Ranger is categorized as a compact truck, but its by no means short on power. Under the hood, it packs a 270-horsepower 4-cylinder engine that puts out a formidable 310 lb-ft of torque. The powerhouse comes mated to a prompt 10-speed automatic transmission, and the duo provides timely acceleration whenever you need to rise to merging or passing speed. The Ranger stands out in its class with incredible towing and hauling capability, and when you need to tow a trailer or boat, the truck delivers with a 7,500-pound capacity. It can also haul up to 1,860 pounds in its truck bed, an unmatched figure in the compact truck class.

Adventurous Off-Roading

The Ranger is ready for action whenever the pavement ends, and it can be relied upon for rugged outdoor navigating. Ford also offers a couple of appealing packages to expand on the Ranger’s traversing capabilities, and models with rear-wheel drive can be equipped with the FX2 package for enhanced off-roading. Ford introduced this performance-focused bundle for 2020, and it grants access to tougher terrains with the addition of specialized of-road suspension and a locking rear differential. Four-wheel drive models can be upgraded with the FX4 Off-Road package, which adds specialized suspension and tires, crawl control, a terrain management system, and skid plates.
