2020 ford ranger
Good news first. The cabin’s controls are easy to find and use. The bad news? The cabin design isn’t anything special. Mediocre and uninspired is what it is. You can get the Ranger with an extended cab (SuperCab) or a crew cab (SuperCrew). SuperCrew is family-friendly, with seating five. This one comes with those four doors I mentioned before. The SuperCab will seat four and has those two half-doors. Either style will come with plenty of room for adults. If you are looking for cabin storage, you won’t find a lot of it in this truck.
Fuel economy ratings have not been released, but it is a safe bet that they will be similar to the 2019 model. Rear-wheel drive will get you 21 city and 26 mpg highway, while four-wheel drive can get you 20 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.
When you add the tow package, your truck will be able to tow up to 7500 pounds. And don’t worry, the engine remains poised and impressive even when pulling a heavy trailer. As for payload capacity, the Ranger can handle up to 1860 pounds.
A side note worth taking into consideration, the ride can get a bit queasy over uneven pavement. Which makes it less capable off-road than its rivals.
Tech and Safety
Base-model comes equipped with a four-speaker AM/FM audio system, a single USB port and a WiFi hotspot that can connect up to 10 devices. This is extremely convenient when you are on a job site and need access to the internet. The higher trims will get your Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, an 8.0-inch touchscreen with swipe capability (that is a plus!), and more.
The 2020 Ford Ranger earned four out of five stars in crash testing conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Safety features include: Available blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, Standard forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking and Available adaptive cruise control.
If you are looking for a small truck, the 2020 Ford Ranger should be on your list of trucks to test drive. Towing capabilities are good, safety is close to perfect, and it is perfect for work or play. If you can handle a few bumps in the road you will be fine.
