I am stoked for this. Can’t wait to get one, put a new HAM radio in it and go exploring!
Dumping my Focus ST for this next year. I heard there not taking deposits till fall.
Hoping to pay cash and there is not a long wait when they come out.
I dig it. Someday I’ll be able to afford something nice..........
Hey welcome back
My dad is getting one ordered as soon as he can. If I didn't swear off domestics, and needed a V8 for towing, I may have considered this. Not a bad looking little truck.
Depending on much you need to tow and how offen. This thing should do 7k lbs.
I think I could DD and use this to tow for small trips. As long as my next project is light enough.
I know better then going close to spec now from my v6 sport trac. I wont make that mistake again, especially with a 4 banger, even if it is turbo. The power has to come from somewhere and its tougher on and engine to get it from 8000 RPM than it is from CI.
My local Ford Dealer (also largest in the world) will have the new 2019 Ranger on display for a one day only special viewing this weekend. I'm planning to go check it out and will report back
So the demo they had was a super cab from Mexico modified a bit with steel bumpers and all. It was a super cab fx4 in dark grey (Graphite). Could not sit in it or anything, but it's a good looking truck. The wife even liked it. I told we could probably get 35's under it..... she didn't like that so much...lol
No pic, Steve??
No, it was in a box trailer with the side opened up. Nothing really different then we have all already seen. That's why I didn't bother.
But this sitting next to it was pretty cool
Configuration builder is up now.
Because very few people would buy it, unfortunately. V8's are dead. Mustang and F-Series are it. In fact I'll bet you even the v8 I will go away in the f-150 soon. Besides that can't make the mileage requirements with a V8. Only 25% of f150s sold have a V8 now. Only 52% Mustangs sell with a V8.
It's a sad reality.
Next up, bye bye internal combustion engine
I don’t think the internal combustion engine will be gone anytime soon. There is bound to be rampant, and more and more, hybrids coming down the pipelines before too long.
A few weeks ago I put in my order. Dealer called me yesterday, and said they're pushing it in front of all the dealer stock. Should be one of, if not the first one on the street.

Keep us posted when you start hearing delivery dates. I’m excited about this truck!
It has a payload capacity of 1.3t (2,800lbs) and a towing capacity of 3,500kg (7,700lbs).
Attached is the brochure for the 2018 Ranger/Raptor here in Thailand.
No diesel Ranger = wtf?
Even the Colorado has a duramax and the nissan a cummins jeep wrangler is also getting a diesel so I hear?
Come on ford do it!!
I know I saw talk of a diesel in the Ranger somewhere. I don’t think it’s coing out right away though
UPDATE ON THE RANGER RAPTOR!
Reasons Why You Should Not Be Disappointed By Diesel Ford Ranger Raptor @ Top Speed
"This is the thing you should be most disappointed and most excited about. At the same time. Although it is only a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, biturbo diesel, the new Ford engine is kinda awesome.
Not very much, is it? Yet, the torque is what makes the Ranger Raptor most alluring. This small four-cylinder develops 369 pound-feet of twist. Considering that the car is precisely tailored for the sandy surfaces and off-roading adventures, so much torque is only welcomed.
Coupled with a new 10-speed automatic transmission (it is an adapted version of the one used in a Mustang), the Ranger Raptor obviously tries to make use of every ounce of power the small 2.0-liter can develop."
My bad. This came out a week ago.
I'm not sure where you're getting your information, but Ford has not released any official HP numbers yet on the US Ranger
