Must be a SuperCrew issue? Our 2019 SuperCab sounds solid.
I also own a supercab & couldn't be happier with the solid feel of the road( upgraded to Eibach front & rear Shocks) & 265/70/17 tires. When I close my doors it sounds good & solid so my February 2020 Ranger passes the test real well....Only 4 Tiedowns tho.

Filed against lemon law, I’m told it is only the second ranger in US that has been repurchased. Spent 24 days at Ford in 11 months with acceleration shuddering problem and AC problems
Then I must have been the 1st one. As mine was bought back in Mid 2019.

Things I noticed from 2019 to 2021
Xlt 301a sports pkg builds

-Power folding mirrors are no longer included in the 301a pkg
-wheel well lips are plastic and not painted magnetic gray to match bumpers on sports pkg
-as OP mentioned, the headrests no long fold in the backseat and don't seem to be adjusted in the fronts.
-the e-brake button is rubber instead of chrome

Everything else seems to be about the same that I can tell so far.

I have to be honest...today I needed to move a couch and a chair. Long enough that the tailgate was down.
I used two straps
And the middle tie down on one side
Super convenient
Sorry only some of us have this luxury.

*no im not. Suck it. First year model wins

Mine was 4/19 and I have 6 (and since it was April, there were two spares in the tool storage area with bolts...;))

Well I have read many of the posts here. Sometimes I wonder why people buy a ranger pickup truck. Ranger XLT cost me under $30,000 4x2. I in no way could have bought a full size vehicle with the options this Ranger has. Full size vehicle would have cost me at least 40k. With no bells or whistles base model. The Ranger does everything I need it to do and everything I will be doing with it. Like buying an inexpensive car it does not have all the bells and whistles of a full-sized vehicle that they put more money and time into. All of that being known is why I like the Ranger and has so much to offer for the price, and fits all of my needs and then some. I even have tow hooks in front so someone can pull me out of the mud when I get stuck thinking it's a 4x4. Even though my toe hooks are black not red I am worried about the functionality of them. So I bought the vehicle knowing exactly what I was getting and impressed and happy with what I bought. Ford [email protected]$&+!* Ranger!

Good Eyes there... Taking away the gas cap was only the beginning years ago... :^(

I agree with this. I would rather have a loaded Ranger Lariat than a F-150, etc. I also have a RAM 1500 “LoneStar” that is moderately equipped that was deeply discounted, yet still 48k.
