Getting to know the latest truck from Ford is easy--just read our 2020 Ford Ranger review. We'll be laying out specifications and key features of the truck, so each driver in Mount Pocono, Tobyhanna, Pocono Pines, Blakeslee, and Scranton gets a feel for the strengths of the Ranger.

Given that it's a Ford truck, you likely won't be surprised by its impressive towing capacities or sterling engine specifications. Less obvious to most may be the many customizations that you can add to the model. For additional insight on the Ranger, contact Ray Price Ford.

Performance Output for the 2020 Ford Ranger

You'll find that the Ford Ranger does a splendid job of meshing performance qualities, like power and acceleration with efficiency.

There's a 2.3L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder motor under the hood; the only engine offered for the truck. With it, you receive 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. The fuel economy you'll receive--according to EPA estimates--checks in at 21 city/26 highway MPG.

Standard Auto Start-Stop Technology is another feature that boosts the Ranger's fuel economy. What the arrangement does is shut off your engine when you come to a complete halt. The engine will remain off while your foot is holding down the brake pedal, saving you fuel. When you want the engine to jump back to life, merely release the brake pedal, and you can be on your way!

Capability: Towing Capacity & Payload

With the sturdy 4-cylinder under the hood, your Ranger will have no trouble lending a hand for around-the-house projects or keeping up with larger trucks on the worksite.

Payload is favorable, measuring 2,080 pounds at its peak. Along with having the strength to store cargo in the bed, your truck can make easy towing of any trailers attached to the back.

The maximum towing capacity measures 7,500 pounds. The gross curb weight rating of the model peaks at 12,500 pounds and guiding you through different gears is a smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission.

Off-Road Enjoyment

With the standard and optional equipment found in the Ranger, the truck is practically begging you to venture off the paved road.

For instance, a Terrain Management System™ will allow you to adjust the driving dynamics of your truck to better tackle different surfaces. The modes include Normal, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Ruts, and Sand.

     

Also offered for the truck is the available FX4 Off-Road Package that includes Trail Control™, an exposed steel front bash plate, plus:

  • Tuned off-road monotube shocks
  • All-terrain tires with aggressive tread
  • Traction-enhancing electronic-locking rear differential
  • Heavy-duty front skid plate

Driver-Assisting Technology

To give you the upper hand while you're trying to maneuver through cluttered worksites or town streets in your Ranger, Ford has incorporated a wide range of driver-assisting features into the model. The purpose of these systems vary, yet this technology suite does a great job of keeping you safe in any driving scenario.

These safety systems center around the Ford Co-Pilot360™ package. Here's a few of the features that are included in the suite:

  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Trailer Coverage
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Lane-Keeping System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control

So, how do these systems work? Well, BLIS® can alert you if you're attempting to switch lanes on a busy highway and another vehicle is currently driving in your blind spot. The trailer coverage system extends that audible and visual alert to include any vehicles moving alongside your trailer out on the highway.

To avoid collisions, there's the Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking. The arrangement can alert you if a front-facing collision seems likely and automatically apply the brakes if you fail to do so in an appropriate time.

Both the Lane-Keeping System and Adaptive Cruise Control are used for long highway cruises. The Lane-Keeping System provides a notification if you unknowingly veer out of your lane, while Adaptive Cruise Control can accelerate or decelerate the vehicle to keep you a steady distance away from the car in front.

In-Cabin Technology & Remote Connectivity

So far, you've seen technology embedded into each aspect of the Ranger, from performance to safety. As you make your way into the cabin, that technology continues to play a key role in everyday functions.

The SYNC® 3 infotainment system is what you'll be using as you scroll through different menus on the 8-inch touchscreen display. If you're driving and have no free hands to scroll with, the voice-activated technology can step in to help you navigate the menus.

There's also the inclusion of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. These integration systems provide an easy, straightforward link between your truck and smartphone. Once paired, applications on your smartphone--such as music, podcasts, navigation, text messaging, and more--can be accessed through the 8-inch display.

By making use of the specific FordPass Connect™ application and 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, you'll be able to interact with your truck from remote locations. Here's a few features that come standard when you download the application:

  • Compare fuel prices of nearby gas stations
  • Lock, unlock, and start your model remotely
  • Receive reminders about service needs
  • Find parking ahead of time
  • Accumulate points that can increase the value of your next service visit or the overall value of your next Ford model
