Well I would say take back roads and lengthen your commuteHow's the 6G Ranger motor going to be affected by the new PHEV system. If you have a commute within its range the motor will be used even less.
I didn’t buy my ranger thinking about commutes. I bought it because I wanted a truck I liked and wasn’t over the top. If that’s your circumstances and you are that worried about it, I don’t know what to tell you, that’s on you. Some people are bothered when I tell them I have a truck less than 2 years old (she’ll be 2 in a week 🥲) with over 50k and think it’s the worse thing ever. If you enjoy a vehicle, you’ll put up with the little quirks it has or try to fix them yourself. Shoot my gas gauge works only 50% of the time. Am I going to take it to ford to have them completely tear apart the gas system, Hell no! I’ve Got a perfectly good odometer that tells me when I hit 350 miles and should fill up. The gas in the oil, the short commutes, not warming your truck up, it’s all little things that really have been answered probably by 10+ threads each since the ‘19 came out.
Don’t even get me started on the octane debate again. Everyone knows the damper is what doubles the horsepower after all.
