Default How is the performance of the newer 2.3L Ranger?

Anyone have a new Ranger? Is the 2.3 worth it?

My boss got one, and loves it!
Having ridden in it, it is very fast.

As much as i like what Ford has done, they are smoking crack with the sticker prices on them.

Also, I was disappointed about how large the 2019 ranger was.
What happened to the little truck that used to be the ranger.

If you drive empty the fuel mileage should be 22-24 mpg. If you are hard on the gas or tow significant weight, you will not get 20 mpg.
My neighbor bought a new demo 4x2 and he likes his very much.

The new Ranger was actually going to be the NEW F-100, part of Fords plan to eliminate the Ranger, but the call of the wild got to them and it was decided to call it the Ranger instead.

I for one wouldnt have been so disappointed in what Ford came out with as a Ranger if they had just said, the Ranger is DEAD, long live the F100 !

Too bad Ford thinks we want a revamped car to pose as a truck... you know, cut the back off and call it a truck.

When my Ranger goes south for the final time,I will either be a Toyota or Dodge driver.... that Jeep Gladiator doesn't look too bad either.

It's not revamped, it is all new. It is wider and heavier than the old Rangers but the wheelbase is the same as the old Ranger extended cab at 126".
If changing the name to the F100 would make it better for you, call Ford and tell them.
The thing I have the biggest issue with is the bed length.....supercab you can get only a 6 ft bed and the crew cab gets a tiny 5 ft bed. WTF good is a 5 ft bed????
