Ford Ranger Towing Capacity
The new Ford Ranger is one well-rounded truck. It has great cabin and bed space, uses gas efficiently, is ready for any off-road adventure, and can tow and haul heavy items around Cerritos, Long Beach, and Buena Park.
How much can the 2019 Ranger tow? At Norm Reeves Ford Superstore Cerritos, we decided to take a closer look at the Ford Ranger towing capacity and what its hauling capabilities mean for you.
New Ford Ranger Towing Capacity
New Ford Ranger Towing Cerritos CAPowered by the 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4 engine, the 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque that is produced by the Ford Ranger’s powertrain will give this pickup truck the ability to tow a maximum of 7,500 pounds.
Since the engine is the same in each trim level, the great thing about the new Ford Ranger is that its maximum towing capabilities are the same across all configurations of the truck.
With 7,500 pounds of towing capacity, you will be able to hitch up to the back of the Ranger your boat for a day on the water, camper for a weekend getaway, or your trailer with varying supplies and equipment for that next DIY project you are planning to do.
Ford Ranger Payload
The new Ranger also can carry a lot of weight in its cabin as well as the bed of the truck. The Ranger comes with two different cabin configurations.
If you opt for the SuperCab Ford Ranger, you will have a maximum payload capacity of 2,080 pounds. The SuperCrew® cab will be able to hold a payload of up to 1,770 pounds.
Safely Towing with the New Ranger
2019 Ford RangerWith the Ford Ranger towing capacity being so strong, the truck also has advanced technology features that help you safely get from point A to point B while you have something hitched to the back of your truck.
Using the AdvnaceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ system that can apply individual brake force and adjust the engine output, the Trailer Sway Control will be able to keep your trailer stable and on its intended course.
While riding around in the Ford Ranger, there will also be times where you will need to change into another lane. When towing and trying to make a lane change, you will need to make sure there is extra space for you to do so. Luckily with the available BLIS™ system that has Trailer Coverage, the Ford Ranger can scan both the truck’s and your trailer’s blind spots so you know when it is clear to go into the adjacent lane.
