The Detroit Free Press named the 2020 Ford Ranger its Truck of the Year at the end of December, citing its “combination of value, features, and capability.” The 2020 Ranger small pickup truck is the first production model of the beloved truck since Ford suspended its run in 2012.
Starting at just $24,410, the new Ranger is more affordable than the second- and third-place trucks of the year, according to the Detroit Free Press. The Ranger comes with the advanced 2.3-liter turbocharged engine, which puts out 270 horsepower and paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, allowing it to tow up to 7,500 pounds.
DFP also complimented the abundant features on the Ranger, including Trail Control, which makes off-road terrain easier to cross with electronic throttle control, as well as advanced collision alert with automatic braking. These features make the Ranger safer and make it easier for you to enjoy your ride.
The 2020 Ranger offers a range of packages, too, so you can customize it to your exact wants and needs. The FX2 Package, for instance, adds off-road tires and a rear-locking differential for better off-road performance, and the SXT Appearance Package gives the Ranger even more style. Other available packages include the Trailer Tow Package, Bed Utility Package, Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology package, and the FX4 Off-Road Package.
