    Hey guys, here's the first official window sticker and I think everyone might be interested. I'm not sure if these numbers are official yet as they're not listed on fueleconomy.gov but here they are either way. Keep in mind this is for a 4x2 Ranger.

    21 City
    26 Highway
    23 Combined

    Moderator addendum:
    As for estimating the 4x4 (4wd) model's MPG, there shouldn't be much difference in MPG as @skibuff explains:

    It must be legit since I entered the VIN
    1FTER4EH7KLA03237 on this website and also pulled up the window sticker myself: https://researchmaniacs.com/VIN-Number-Lookup/WindowSticker/Ford.html

    Those MPG numbers are great, by comparison the 2019 Chevy Colorado 4x2 2.8L Diesel gets 20 MPG City, 30 MPG HWY and 23 MPG Combined.

    The Ranger meets or exceeds the diesel’s city and combined MPG.

    We'll see how it is real world. My friend has an F150 with the 2.7L 10 speed 2wd with the supercab and he says he averages about 28 mpg when driving highway during long trips.

    But it does match what the Ford reps were seeing on their cross-country trips.

    And these MPG numbers meet or exceed the class leading Honda Ridgeline.

    I entered a bunch of the VINs provided on an Excel sheet somewhere here and Ford said the Window Sticker was not yet ready and come back later. Hoping to find the mileage of a 4x4 as that is the only Ranger that can be flat towed with 4 wheels down like our Honda CR-V. the Ford F150 4x4 also has a flat tow mode but it heavier and simply don't want to drive such a large vehicle. Hoping the fuel mileage is significantly better mileage that the competitors and the F150. If you have a 4x4 VIN please try it and post the sticker...we really need to know (and Google did not return any official data on fuel economy)...so this is the first place I have seen it...Thanks Ranger 5G!

    Welcome @Carl! You won’t find any window stickers using the VIN spreadsheet, since they were collected from retail preorder Rangers.

    The window sticker in this post is a dealer stock Ranger, and was posted on their website: https://www.kinselford.com/new-Beaumont-2019-Ford-Ranger-R4E+++302A-1FTER4EH7KLA03237

    Just checked Sioux Falls Ford, they have one ranger 4x4 listed but the window sticker does not have the mileage data yet.

    Does the 4x4 model have any kind of disconnect in the front axle hubs or differential? If so, the 4x4 mileage may only be 1 MPG worse than the 4x2.

    It's a 4wd not an AWD so the front Differential spins free unless the 4x4 is engaged and the transfer case sends power to it. For regular driving the only difference to MPG is a little extra weight from the 4x4 equipment and the small loss from friction from the front differential spinning free in 2wd.

    So....would these numbers be about right.... 1 MPG down when in 2WD in the 4x4 Ranger....which would account for the extra weight and some minor parasitic drag. Anyone know off hand if this ratio holds true for the 2.7 F150 2WD vs 4x4 trucks. given that there are 10 gears wonder if the Ranger can 'hypermile" on the highway and beat on the EPA rating like the F150 apparently does in the real world.

    From what I understand the reason the F150's are beating the MPG in the real world is the turbo(ecoboost). When driving the truck fast or towing the turbo kicks in and it burns a ton gas. If you are just cruising and not smashing the gas and winding up the turbo it gets much better fuel results. So if you drive it like a gutless little 4 banger you are gonna get great small engine millage but that turbo is always at the ready to give you the power you want/need.

    I don't have experience but have heard the 3.5L with the 6 speed used to guzzle gas even when driven like a granny but the 2.7L was always an mpg king. With the 10 speed, I've heard lots of people brag they nearly get 30 mpg in their F150's on the highway. The Ranger is a bit lighter with a very similar power to weight ratio as a F150 with the 2.7L, so I am going to make a wild assumption and say there is every reason to believe that one could get 30 mpg in a Ranger.

    My VIN doesn't work on the Ford tracking page but I've got a window sticker so all is well!

    PS (No MPG on it).

    Nice! I took a look at your window sticker, it appears that your build date is 12/19/2018 - did you already know that?

    This is good news. I don't know about the rest of you but more likely than not, real world experience will be less that what the window sticker claims. At least that has always been my experience. That said though, it still beats the others.

    Being an old man I drive like an old man, I almost always beat the mileage claims. :)

    This is great for around town but I would have thought that the highway mileage would have been more. My 2018 mustang GT has gotten 29 mpg on the Atlantic City Expressway. Around town it is at 16mpg if I behave so 21 will be nice around town.
