2019 Ford Ranger Pickup Claims Best-in-Class Gas Fuel-Economy

4x2 21 city, 26 highway, 23 combined
4x4 20 city, 24 highway, 22 combined



Ford has announced the EPA fuel-economy mpg ratings for the 2019 Ford Ranger, and the new pickup truck is tops among its mid-size competition when burning gasoline. The only powertrain option when the Ranger goes on sale early next year will be a 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. With that combo, the automaker is touting numbers of 21 mpg city and 26 mpg highway for rear-wheel-drive models and 20/24 mpg for 4x4s. The EPA combined estimates are 23 mpg for the 4x2 and 22 mpg for the 4x4.

In terms of the competition, the Ranger 4x2 beats GM's diesel-powered 4x2 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon by 1 mpg in the city and ties them in combined mileage, but gives up 4 mpg on the highway to those trucks. The 4x4 diesel GM trucks are rated for 19 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined. That's a pretty good showing against diesel-fired competition.

The V-6-powered Honda Ridgeline with front-wheel-drive matches the Ranger's 26 mpg highway but is rated for just 19 mpg in the city; its combined mileage is 21 mpg. The all-wheel-drive version of the unibody mid-size Ridgeline is rated for 18/25/21 mpg.

The Toyota Tacoma 4x2 gets 20/23/21 mpg from its base 2.7-liter inline-four and six-speed automatic, while the 4x4 with the same powertrain gets 19/22/20 mpg. The ancient Nissan Frontier, with its base 2.5-liter four and five-speed automatic, is EPA-rated for 17/22/19 mpg in 4x2 trim and 15/21/17 mpg in 4x4 trim.

Now that we know how far to expect the Ranger to range on a gallon of fuel, we look forward to finding out how it feels while doing so. We're driving the truck very soon, so check back on Tuesday, December 18 for our first-drive impressions of the 2019 Ford Ranger.

4x4 will be better than my 4x2 Tacoma so I'm happy. I hate ordering cars. The wait is the worst part.

  • With EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined, 2019 Ford Ranger is the most fuel-efficient gas-powered midsize pickup in America
  • All-new Ranger’s proven 2.3-liter EcoBoost® gasoline engine beats the V6 gasoline engines from its midsize truck competitors to deliver best-in-class 310 lb.-ft. of torque and best-in-class towing capacity
  • Ranger is the no-compromise choice for power, technology, capability and efficiency whether the path is on road or off
DEARBORN, Mich., Dec. 11, 2018 – The adventure-ready 2019 Ford Ranger is the most fuel-efficient gas-powered midsize pickup in America – providing a superior EPA-estimated city fuel economy rating and an unsurpassed EPA-estimated combined fuel economy rating versus the competition. The all-new Ranger has earned EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined for 4x2 trucks.

When configured as a 4x4, Ranger returns EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 20 mpg city, 24 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined. This is the best-in-class EPA-estimated city fuel economy rating of any gasoline-powered four-wheel-drive midsize pickup and it is an unsurpassed EPA-estimated combined fuel economy rating.

“Midsize truck customers have been asking for a pickup that’s Built Ford Tough,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “And Ranger will deliver with durability, capability and fuel efficiency, while also providing in-city maneuverability and the freedom desired by many midsize pickup truck buyers to go off the grid.”

Along with 270 horsepower, Ranger’s standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine produces 310 lb.-ft. of torque, delivering the most torque of any gas engine in the midsize pickup segment. Paired with a class-exclusive 10-speed transmission, Ranger boasts a unique combination of efficiency, power and capability that only comes from Ford.

Ranger is designed and engineered to serve the needs of North America with innovative technology like its available class-exclusive Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage, all-new Terrain Management System™ with Trail Control™ and standard FordPass Connect™ with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot supporting up to 10 devices.

Built Ford Tough is engineered into every Ranger. When properly equipped, this shines through in the truck’s best-in-class 7,500 pounds of gas towing capacity with available tow package and best-in-class 1,860 pounds of maximum payload to handle all your gear.

Ranger production is underway at Michigan Assembly Plant. The truck arrives at dealers nationwide starting in January.
